Would love him in DC, but not at the cap hit he'll draw as a UFA.

He's right at the top of my UFA wishlist this summer for Buffalo. I'd give him 4 years, $3.5M per. No more than that and I think that's a little generous.

I'm not saying he's worth all that money, but that'll be around what he can get on the open market. 20+ goal scorer, Stanley Cup Champion, one of the best defensive centers and PKers in the League, good on faceoffs. GMs and coaches love all of those aspects. He won't come cheap. I'd love him for our 3rd line. He's exactly the type of player the Sabres need to add this summer. Not a huge name (Suter or Parise) but we added bigger names last offseason. This offseason we need to focus on adding depth/role players. Kelly is that type of player, and that type of player wins a team Cups.

Can't blame him for wanting to test the free agency waters where I'm sure he'll get a nice $2.9-$3.6 million from some team.

I don't think he'll re-sign with Boston. He'll go somewhere and be their number 2 center.
