Team Explanation
Assuming the Sabres have a low 70s internal cap as has apparently been rumored, what might that look like? Not trading for big name RFAs for sure.

Let's assume $72-73M.

Trades
BUF
  1. Compher, J.T.
  2. Kaut, Martin
  3. 2021 1st round pick (COL)
Additional Details:
In this scenario, I'd think move 1 would be to trade away the expensive RFA. You get two RWs for the price of one with some cost certainty and another future.
COL
  1. Reinhart, Sam [RFA Rights]
BUF
  1. Dvorak, Christian
Additional Details:
Cost controlled while possibly getting better now to keep Eichel from becoming toxic.

    I think they'd probably just let Montour go instead of trading Risto.

    Could still fit that in under a $72M cap here. I figure get what you can for Risto, sign Montour for one year and flip him at the deadline to maximize assets.

    Clever work and I really like Dvorak but this wouldn't be a playoff roster. It's going to be tough to mold the Sabres into it if they are low 70s.

    I mean that roster sucks so it's probably quite realistic
