He was a team-worst -45 in 46GP on a very bad DET team.

I saw that, but the point totals also seemed decent for a player on a very bad team. 
 

Is he worth a look?

Pretty sure teams can walk away from arb contracts this season so the question of whether his potential arb was going to be too high is moot. It’s a bad move if he isn’t signed. 

This.

The other thing that might make sense is there is a more expensive player coming in and this is essentially a space creator.

The Sabres still have more than $32 million in cap space with another 10 players to sign.

So we're hoping for poor evaluation instead of just abominable.

Lol. Because Buffalo.

KA better have a deal in place for Kahun or he should be fired.

This kid has performed at a solid clip offensively in his two years in the NHL and was very solid in his limited time here.  He is a RW but can play anywhere. Just dumb not to re-sign him.

When is the next time Adams will be available to explain this decision?

Tonight he will have a post draft presser

You'd think if they did have a deal close they'd leak the rumour considering Jack Quinn's introductory social media posts (which I hope he isn't reading) are being flooded with big kahuna energy

According to our local AP guy, Kahun and the Sabres will look to hammer out a deal tomorrow but it definitely sounds like Kahun wants much more than the Sabres are willing to give him and they didn’t want to deal with arbitration.

Isn't his qualifying offer like 3.75mil?

So basically it comes down to - was it worth it to forgo the QO and lose exclusive negotiating rights in an effort to avoid arbitration?

If they are close to a deal and are trying to show good faith, yes. 

If not... no.

I don't think they are "close" but that's my reading
