The cap & budget constraints will make it tough because any deal not only has to match asset-wise, but it has to be pretty darn close to dollar for dollar as the Sabres are in LTIR credit range and the Ducks have maxed out their budget for this year.

That adds an extra layer of complexity to things.

Its a gross overpayment, but probably what we'll need to get him...I'd do it personally, given that Ennis needs a new contract.....but I doubt regier will.
That deal can't happen without the Sabres shedding around $1.1M in salary as Ryan is a $5.1M cap hit and Stafford is at $4M.

It's a tricky puzzle to solve.
