    Next off-season

    I generally don't like getting ahead of myself, but there are some things to look forward too next off-season as a bunch of salary is to come off the books for the Sabres....

    The Sabres could have some big money available next offseason
    John Vogl of The Athletic: The Buffalo Sabres could have some roster spots and available funds for free agency next offseason as the have eight players on expiring contracts.

    After qualifying offers, the Sabres could have around $29 million in cap space using a $2 million raise in cap number for 2020-21. That is with nine forwards, five defense and one goalie under contract.

    An early list of free agents options

    Centers Nicklas Backstrom, Brayden Schenn, Charlie Coyle, Erik Haula and Mikael Granlund.

    Left Wingers Taylor Hall, Alex Galchenyuk, Mike Hoffman and Chris Kreider.

    Right Wingers Evgenii Dadonov and Tyler Toffoli.

    Left Defense Torey Krug, Roman Josi, Jake Muzzin and T.J. Brodie.

    Right Defense Alex Pietrangelo, Tyson Barrie, Jared Spurgeon, Justin Schultz, Justin Faulk, Sami Vatanen, Travis Hamonic and Radko Gudas.

    I hope that by next off season, CM has established himself as the number 2 C and that wont be a need

    Who is your wish list?

    I think Josi for sure and maybe Backstrom re-sign but the others may be in play. I think because they won, Pietrangelo stays as well.

    Guys I would avoid: Huala - not a huge fan on his 3rd team, Galchenyuk - He is in the Buffalo wheel house of lots of potential but no production and on his 3rd team, Brodie I think is drying up too. Not super high on Toffoli but tough to say if LA is really that bad or that is his game now because that 60 point/30 goal season was a few years ago now.

    Lots more cap space, that's for sure.

    Allows more trades over straight signing of FA's.
