Moulson has a 12 team trade list.
If BUF retains salary, Moulson+Bogosian in exchange for picks+prospects?

That clears up $5x2 and $5.1x3 in salary for Buffalo, bolsters NYI who are at a pivotal point, and doesn't touch either team's core.
Buffalo gets an almost clean sheet for long term contracts, with the only secured veteran remaining being Pominville with one more season after this one
That space allows them more creativity if they deal Kane, both in open roster spots and in salary room

If it doesn't work out for NYI this season, Tavares leaves, the team moves... they won't mind an extra year of Moulson and two of Bogosian, nor will they miss depth prospects. If it works out, they're happy as clams

I'm so happy that for the past three months we haven't seen any Moulson to Vegas posts. Gee Moulson couldn't beat out Pouiiot on LW. Can't see any team wanting him even at 50% retention, cause at 2.5m sitting in the press box isn't good for any team.

goldie078. Gee the Leafs didn't have Kadri or Zaitsev on waivers due to Horton and Lupul on LTIR. Who would've thought? Of course the Blues didn't have to put any valuable players on waivers and they had four guys on IR.

I think the sabres want to see the year out with bogo, thinking Housley can get more out of him. Ive also heard rumors Kane has no interest in coming back to Buffalo. This city isnt his type of environment, but who knows how he'll feel in 8 months
