The Sabres should be a little more desperate to find some help for their top four forwards on the chart, as they suffered without some of their supporting talent last season. This would make the Sabres a lot more competitive for a playoff spot and be better fantasy-wise in 2010.
|Derek Roy||Craig Rivet||Ryan Miller|
|Jason Pominville||Toni Lydman||Patrick Lalime|
|Thomas Vanek||Steve Montador|

The Sabres haven't really spent their cap space too wisely, as they don't carry a lot of strength in their depth up front, but still have an average cap hit of $3.6 million through their 8 signed forwards. (NOTE: Clarke MacArthur has signed and would be added to the list, but his cap number is yet to be disclosed) Overall, the Sabres have 16 players on their roster list above and it carries a $49.3 million cap hit, which leaves about a $1 million for each player remaining for a full 23-man roster.
The Sabres also have to re-sign Drew Stafford, who remains a restricted free agent without arbitration rights.
