I don't think the Sabres can waive Lalime. They either have to keep him, trade him, or buy him out at the end of the season. They can send him to the AHL. Here's the kicker, though. I THINK that even if he is sent to the minors, his salary will count against the Sabres salary cap, because he was 35 or older when he signed this contract. If he was younger than 35, and he got sent to the minors, his salary wouldn't count against the cap. That's how teams like the Bruins, Devils, and Rangers circumvent the salary cap.

I could be wrong here, but I'm pretty sure that's how is works.
