But the Sabres can no longer afford to make a player a healthy scratch. They started the season with just $95,000 in salary cap space, and it's burning up by the minute. The call-ups from Rochester have already cost the Sabres $60,000, based on the estimate of about $2,000 per day provided by the team. After three former Amerks play tonight, there will be only $29,000 left. The Sabres can exceed the cap by $2.8 million as long as Tim Connolly remains on long-term injured reserve. But if the concussed center comes back and that original $95,000 cap space is gone, the Sabres wouldn't be able to call up anyone from Rochester as a short-term injury replacement - unless the team cleared cap space through a trade or by waiving someone.more
