The Buffalo Sabres have hit the skids this season, and obviously been beyond disappointing. With the season swiriling down around the drain, we get one season closer to the most important July 1st since Daniel Briere and Chris Drury left town.
On July 1, 2014, the long tenured Sabres core of Ryan Miller, Jason Pominville and Thomas Vanek all become unrestricted free-agents.
While all three of the aforementioned Sabres have played an adequate role for the franchise throughout their careers, they will count for a combined $18,692,857 towards next season’s $64.3 million dollar salary cap.
With the shrinking cap number, coupled with these player’s high salaries, re-signing all three could prove to be very difficult for Sabres management.
Below there are a few points for each player. We want you to tell us: if the Sabres had to choose one of the three players to re-sign, who would you choose?
