UFAs - Roy (replaced by Grigorenko), Ellis (anyone), Regehr (McNabb), Leopold (Brennan), Sulzer (Weber). That's over 12 mil off the books, and only Sulzer might be worth re-signing.
So with over 7 mil in cap space this summer (after Ennis and Kaleta re-sign) and another 12 mil off the books next summer, and another likely increase in the cap ceiling of 4-6 mil, that would total about 23-25 mil. Take away the money to re-sign or call up other players and Buffalo should still have in the range of 18-20 mil to work with next summer, and won't lose anyone critical in the process.
Start making your UFA wish list now...lol.
you really hate this team, don't you?
