I think that there's a much greater chance that Buffalo will accept the 1-year deal and then trade for a package equal in value to 1 year of Briere (+ a conditional pick for re-signing).

Besides, why would Buffalo want players like Cammalleri or Frolov when they have 7 or 8 more arbitrations to account for in the budget? I would lean towards believing the rumor that they want prospects. It's really the only thing that makes sense.
I believe that if you look at the CBA closely, you'll find that because Buffalo has other arbitration cases pending, they get to take until 48-hrs after the decision of their last case...They've got time...
