Sabres cap troubles

TSN reported yesterday an arbitrator has awarded forward Adam Mair a one-year, $675K contract. the terms of the CBA state that the Sabres have to accept the award because it is less than $1 million.The Sabres payroll is now at $38 million, and Ryan Miller and Dmitri Kalinin are still not re-signed. due to that, it is speculated whether the Sabres will accept J.P. Dumont’s $2.9 million arbitration award, reject it, making him a UFA or accept the award and then trade Dumont or another player to free up cap space. The Sabres must decide this by August 8th.
