from John Vogle of Sabres Edge at the Buffalo News,
Ville Leino remains the NHL's most likely buyout candidate, but there hasn't been much talk between the Sabres and his agent.
"I have had few very short discussions about Leino with Tim Murray," Leino's agent, Markus Lehto, told The News by email.
Murray, Buffalo's general manager, has said it's a "very good possibility" the team will part ways with Leino. The NHL buyout period will begin 48 hours after the Stanley Cup final ends and continue until June 30.
It will cost the Sabres $7.333 million to buy out the remaining three seasons of Leino's contract. The team signed him to a six-year, $27 million deal in 2011, and he's already been paid $16 million.
