I get where you're coming from - I just don't accept the opportunity risks.
i just dont see the cap space as much risk... since i dont see any significant free agents coming here until we change the identity of the franchise into a perrenial contender... and that will take close to the life of doan's ridiculous contract.
I also don't see it hindering the franchise in keeping their own, as long as they rightfully let Vanek walk in 2 years.
The biggest risk the Sabres face is the youth movement not developing properly... anything that aids that development is a good move IMO.
dont over think it
