The first NHL buyout window is set to open tomorrow (tonight) at 12:01 AM. The Buffalo Sabres have a few players who could potentially be bought out this summer. They have until 5 PM EST on June 30th to issue their buyout/s.

I’ve compiled a list of players that could conceivably be bought out this summer and what the numbers associated with the move will look like.
