so basically with the free agents who left and signed Buffalo basically has Miller, Biron and Spacek signed and on their roster ready for next season. How can you let things get to a point where basically your entire team is forced to file for arbitration????????? craziness in buffalo.

12 players?! Woah!:eek:

Teppo Numminen, Chris Drury, Jaroslav Spacek, Jochen Hecht, and Thomas Vanek are signed. I'm not sure about Taylor Pyatt, Martin Biron, or Ryan Miller, but for sure there's at least $12M tied up in those 5 players.

Biron will likely be traded, so there's a little money saved there.:confused: I think Buffalo will be losing some men for next season. What teams will be cashing in?
