NHL Rumours Buffalo Sabres Toronto Maple Leafs Avalanche

+

The Buffalo Sabres are roughly $14 million under the cap floor for next season even after acquiring the $4.9 million contract of retired goaltender earlier this month. Despite having more than $35.5 million in cap space, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports the Sabres are not expected to pursue any of the league's top free agents on July 13. Instead, Harrington writes the Sabres will likely focus their efforts on bringing in a veteran goaltender to share the load with next season. He points to as one potential option, noting Buffalo could try to lure the 32-year-old with a two-year, $8 million contract. Harrington adds that there's "no real sense" the Sabres have interest in Stanley Cup winner , but Toronto Maple Leafs goalie may be on their wish list. He writes Campbell is likely looking for a deal with more term than Buffalo is willing to offer, but argues the team could bring that number down with a higher cap hit.
