1) He was actually really good in the few games he was healthy for this year

Leino definitely seems like one of those those guys who gets 1 more year to prove himself

It's a convenient excuse for them. TNSE was never going to pay out.

In 2014 they may use it on Leino if he doesnt persorm next year. Buffalo on the other hand is a team that would do a trade for a buyout candidate or a salary dump (Ballard from VAN, Heatley from MIN)

Boston--likely Peverley or Boychuk
Montreal--Gionta
Rangers--Richards (may wait till 2014)
Pittsburgh--MAF
Vancouver---Booth, Ballard, Luongo
Philadelphia--Brierre, Bryz
I cannot imagine that Buffalo won't see big contracts in return for Miller and/or Vanek if they're traded. So many teams are trying to create cap space and taking on a huge contract without dumping one doesn't seem very likely to me.

Buffalo will not take bad contracts that handcuff them for UFAs in 2014 or 2015.

If buffalo is taking any bad contracts back for Miller/Vanek they will (a) get better/more players in return, and/or 9b) not retain Vanek/Millers salary.
