I don't see Moulson returning to Buffalo, but I'm not as familiar with him as some on the boards. I really think GMCF will sign him to some type of deal instead of letting him walk this summer. He did give up some value to get him.
Moulson spoke glowingly about the direction of the team, playing for Nolan, the organization and how he enjoyed playing so close to home.

He admitted to not having any concrete negotiations with GMTM but he said he was reached out to in the days leading up.

I think given the money, the sabres will make some attempt to try and bring him or Steve Ott back in UFA. But moulson may directly tie into whether Nolan stays on beyond this season

With the talk of salary cap not going up as high as previously planned. It may only go to %68M instead of $72M..that will limit teams on what they can sign as UFAs.

Its a trade off if a player wants to go and win a cup with a team on a short contract or sign with a poorer team who could pay him more term and money per.

Buffalo actually wont need to do that much to reach the cap floor next year. 2015/2016 is the bigger concern

Sure Minnesota could resign him. If they have their heart on Vanek then they could lose him. If Moulson gets to UFA Buffalo and the Islanders have a decent shot at resigning him.

If he keeps his PPG pace i think we'll see a Chuck Fletcher giving him a good offer. Finding wingers that are both skilled AND have chemestry with Koivu isnt very common.
