How about this:

Buffalo and Philly make an arrangement with Satan's agent (Clarkie, check with Eklund if you need his number). Buffalo agrees to buy out Satan, Philly agrees to pay Satan the remainder of his contract and reimburse the Sabres for the buyout. Buffalo agrees to send their first rounder to Philly for Handzus.

In effect,

Philly gets Satan and a first
Buffalo gets Handzus and a few million
Satan gets full value of his contract and gets to go to a contender. He might get more money on the open market, but he might not. Or Buffalo could hold over the possibility of tendering him and dealing him somewhere he doesn't want to go.
