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.
So Buffalo does still have the option of a long-term deal?
