Noon is the official start of NHL free agency, but there's already action

July 1, 2019 - 8:27 AM ET

Sabres aren't in on big names who are already attached to teams, but trades and second-tier FA's should bolster roster up-front

A light, semi-productive opening to free agency for the Sabres

July 2, 2019 - 11:48 AM ET

Panarin and Duchene were well out of reach and a lot of money was thrown around leaving the Sabres to add Jimmy Vesey and depth on the first day of NHL free agency

With no more additions up-front, this is what the Sabres could look like

Marcus Johansson and Ryan Dzingel could do wonders for this forward group.

Johan Larsson re-signs. Botterill keeping his 4th-line anchors together?

@boosbuzzsabres As written on many occasions last season, the Sabres fourth line did their job and more than once were the best line out of the forward group. Sure, they didn't do a lot of scoring but Phil Housley didn't seem to want that from them. What he wanted from the likes of Zemgus Girgens...

Botterill putting a big stamp on Sabres roster and where they are cap-wise

July 14, 2019 - 10:48 AM ET

Buffalo has enough room to sign their remaining RFA's and still be under the cap, but there is a logjam of players looking for NHL spots.
