In his last rumor column of the 13-14 regular season, the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch ponders the state of the NHL's search for Brendan Shanahan's successor, the coaching and managerial decisions facing the Canucks, Penguins, Leafs, Panthers and Hurricanes, and he wonders where Mike Cammalleri, Ryan Kesler and Martin Brodeur will end up, but sometimes the "lede story" is the one you go with:
[Tim Murray, the] Buffalo Sabres’ GM has hung the ‘For Sale’ sign outside the club’s office and he’s willing to move just about anybody as the off-season officially gets underway Monday for non-playoff teams.
Sources say Murray has been shopping RW Chris Stewart, D Christian Ehroff, C Luke Adam and RW Drew Stafford.
It doesn’t stop there, either. The Sabres will also listen to see what they can get for LW Marcus Foligno, LW Johan Larsson and D Chad Ruhwedel.
The last three are young players that are still considered prospects so it’s a little surprising Murray would be willing to move any of those guys given the club’s current state and direction.
“He’s just open for business,” said a league executive about Murray before the weekend. “He hasn’t drafted any of these current guys.”
Garrioch continues at length...
from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News,
The Sabres played most of the game a man short after Marcus Foligno left just 1:58 into the contest with what looked like a severe right knee injury following a collision in front of the Blues’ net. Nolan said the injury is “not as ‘bad bad’ as we think” but that Foligno would miss the final six games.

If there were ropes instead of glass, this would be a TKO.
Early in the Leafs/Sabres game, Foligno tried to set the tone with this hit on Gunnarsson
Gunnarsson won’t return tonight.
From the Sabres:
Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier announced today the Sabres have trimmed their training camp roster by 14 players. This leaves the Sabres with 35 players remaining in camp: 19 forwards, 12 defensemen and four goaltenders.
Heading to Portland are: forwards Jacob Lagace, Maxime Legault, Dennis McCauley, Brian Roloff, Felix Schutz, Colin Stuart (pending waivers), Corey Tropp, Travis Turnbull and Derek Whitmore (pending waivers); defensemen Alex Biega, Tim Conboy (pending waivers) and Nick Crawford. In addition, two players were also returned to their junior teams: forward Marcus Foligno (Sudbury, OHL) and defenseman Brayden McNabb (Kootenay, WHL).
