Happy 4th of July, everyone!Â
It's sounding more and more like Daniel Briere is heading to Montreal, and that's my bet as to where he will end up. Of course, nothing is official, but I couldÂ definitelyÂ see him going to the Canadiens.

With free agency tomorrow, I went through the list of soon-to-be free agents and highlighted all of the former Sabres. Out of those highlighted, I wanted to figure out which ones have the best chance of returning to blue and gold. I've excluded Daniel Briere from the list.
Darcy Regier stated that the team will not be looking to make a big splash in free agency.
Unlikely Paul Ranger decides to return to the NHL before tomorrow, but he hasn't rule out returning. So many teams will be interested...
