How will the Sabres get under the cap?




Now that Marc-Andre Gragnani has been signed - how will the Sabres get under the cap? At least part of the answer is simple - to waive Ales Kotalik and Shaone Morrisonn. But this won't be enough. Part of the answer may lie in the evaluation that Darcy Regier has done on the roster. Will the Sabres be more willing to sacrifice their defensive depth in someone like Andrej Sekera who was just signed to a big raise - but one that could be manageable for another team? Will a forward like Jochen Hecht, Brad Boyes or Jason Pominville be on the move? And if so, do they think that Luke Adam would be able to step up? Darcy has indicated that he may not be done wheeling and dealing - in the past (during the Golisano regime) he has said that he is done for the off=season. He has given no such indication this year. It might be worth it to evaluate Centers on other teams around the league that could A. Help the Sabres make a Cup run (yeah, I went there) B. would make less in salary than the assets the Sabres would give up to fit under the cap. My guess is that it would be a short list. Thoughts?
