Sabres are sellers at trade deadline

“This is the process. If I can acquire younger assets or future assets for some of our veterans, especially veterans on expiring contracts, I’m going to pursue that for sure.”

That means pending unrestricted free agents will be in play, topped by the likes of winger Jamie McGinn, who could have value to a contender. Defenseman Mike Weber is a pending UFA who can add depth and toughness to a contending lineup. And while I don’t think the Sabres really want to move backup goalie Chad Johnson (also UFA July 1) the Sabres might listen if the right deal comes up closer to Feb. 29, especially given what Linus Ullmark has already proven.
