'The Sabres are pressed against the $44 million salary cap, making any deal difficult. If they place one of their injured players on the long-term injury exemption list, the Sabres can spend the prorated portion of his salary. Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier has said he expects everyone back for the playoffs except Gaustad. That means any potential deal would be a dollar-for-dollar swap.'
