My Budget Thoughts....

Regier has stated that the Budget for the 2003-2004 season is 33 million. As stated before in here, if you look at the salaries from the NHLPA website, that means Buffalo has already used approx 27.6 million of that budget (including the McKee signing, minus the rochester salaries). What that doesn't include is Roy's salary (does anyone remember what that was?). That means there is approx. 5.4 million to sign Miro. Depending on how much he signs for I think will depend on where Roy starts the season. If he signs for the whole 5.4 (or more) Roy may start the season in the minors until they can dump a player or two. Players like Curtis Brown (1.6), Tim Connoly (1.24) and Dumont (1.4) or Afinogenov (1.3) could be packaged to bring a veteran. Other one to note is Biron, at 2.2 million, is the teams 4th highest paid player and will be a RFA after this season. If Noronen or Miller emerges, expect Biron to be out the door. If Buffalo does dump all those players, it would be a savings of almost 8 million, which could be used an assortment of ways.
