Can Miles Wood be a Sabres top-liner? - Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports


Here's what a $70M Internal Cap Buffalo Sabres team COULD look like:

Miles Wood - Jack Eichel - Jeff Skinner

Mo Johanssen - Nick Bonino - Vic Olofsson

Artie Ruotsolainen - Dylan Cozens - Dominik Kahun

Austin Watson - Curtis Lazar - Kyle Okposo

Brian Gibbons

Rasmus Dahlin - Hank Jokiharju

Joel Edmundson - Rasmus Ristolainen

Jordan Oesterle - Casey Nelson

Luca Sbisa

Darcy Kuemper - Linus Ullmark

How Did We Get Here?

First, a couple RFA signings at discount rates:

Lazar 1 year @ 900K

Kahun 2 years @ 2.15M

Olofsson 1 year @ 3.25M

Then, a couple UFA signings:

Nelson 1 year @ $900K

Sbisa 1 year @ $700K

Gibbons 1 year @ $700K

Edmundson 3 years @ $3.5M

And lastly, the trades:

McCabe -> NJ Miles Wood

Hutton, 2021 1st -> ARZ Darcy Kuemper, Jordan Oesterle

Reinhart, Miller, Ry Johnson -> NAS Bonino, Tomasino, Watson, 2021 1st

Cap Would be $69.975M.
