TSN reports that the Buffalo Sabres have dealt Unrestricted Free agent goaltender Martin Biron for an undisclosed draft pick.  The Sabres acquired goalie Ty Conklin from the Columbus Blue Jackets as Ryan Miller’s backup.  Original reports had Buffalo acquiring the Nashville Predators 1st round draft pick that the Flyers acquired in the Peter Forsberg.  However, it is possible that draft pick might depend on the Flyers ability to sign Biron.  It will be interesting to see if the Flyers look to move Robert Esche.  Also, it remains to be seen if the Sabres make another move.  Buffalo opened up some salary cap space with Biron going and Conklin coming in.  Given the rash of injuries in Buffalo, the Sabres can’t afford to let any open cap space go to waste.

In addition, the Gary Roberts for Noah Welch swap has been completed.
