Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - The Sabres have avoided arbitration by signing Jake McCabe to a two-year, $5.7 million deal. The cap hit for McCabe is $2.85 million and puts the Sabres over the NHL Salary Cap by just over $500,000. Linus Ullmark’s arbitration award will up that number. In my mind,...

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - I think Jason Botterill was very smart not to jump into free agency and get the Sabres stuck with another bad contract. In the past few days, he’s made two trades while giving up nothing but draft picks, and he made minor depth signings for Rochester. Friday’s trade with...

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - With Vegas in salary cap trouble, the Sabres took advantage by acquiring defenseman Colin Miller from the Golden Knights. In return, the Sabres send a second round pick in 2021 and a fifth round pick in 2022. The second round pick going to Vegas is the pick they got in the...
