2014 Free Agent List

Since Buffalo is going to be WAY below the 50 million or so cap floor, what Free agents are we going to be targeting to work our way through the rebuild or possibly sell off for futures at the deadline.

1, 2, or 3 year deals... Pay stupid money. Vets with leadership qualities with a good history of teaching.

We have what, $18 million to reach the floor?

Leino buyout...makes 22.5 ish?

We're some 800k under the Islanders for next year.

We have to spend roughly $20,000,000 to get to the cap floor.

Brian Gionta: $5,000,000 x 1

Ryan Callahan: $6,000,000 x 6

David Legwand: $5,000,000 x 3

Marcel Goc: $4,000,000 x 2

Something like that. Vets who can be stopgaps on inflated contracts. We'll make it. We just have to make sure the players aren't good enough to win us too many games...

Dave Davis @DaveDavisHockey 15m
Assuming Ennis re-signs, Sabres as of now would only need to spend around $12M on 7 or 8 players to reach the '14-'15 cap floor. #mythbuster

Dave Davis @DaveDavisHockey 12m
If you add in Conacher & Foligno, you've got it down to around $9.5M to spend on 5 or 6 players. No sweat.

Dave Davis @DaveDavisHockey 8m
Not only is this cap floor scare a myth, so is the idea that the Sabres wouldn't be able to buy out Leino if that's what they wanted.

Bring back Derek Roy.

We need a veteran influence around these kids.

Ott/Moulson BRING EM BACK BABY! Give them both 1.2* market price, then trade them again for 2015 picks.

Pardon a stupid question, but what happens if a team is below the cap floor?

(I'd throw money at Ott to bring him back, and maybe Callahan. Big money, short contracts, no problem. Don't want another Leino-situation.)

Friedman on WGR said he wouldn't be surprised to see Matty Moulson back in Buffalo next year.


Final dagger to Snows heart.



Its important we suck next year.

We should be able to fill this roster out with vets and still be horrible so we can keep kids in minors.

Draft McDavid/Eichel in 2015...

Then next summer we can start bringing in the kids and quality free agents and start to actually "build" our roster.

If we can find those UFA's that have come to terms with throwing away a year or more of their life making a lot of money but no chance at a Stanley Cup... Target those.
