The Buffalo Sabres are expected to hold a significant sale as the Feb. 27 trade deadline draws closer.
According to the Ottawa Sun, Sabres GM Darcy Regier is looking to unload some contracts and has been trying to deal defenseman Robin Regehr and center Paul Gaustad.
Gaustad, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, is more likely to be moved at the deadline than teammate Regehr, who has one-year remaining on his contract that pays him $4 million.
In 49 games with the Sabres this season, Gaustad has tallied six goals and nine assists for 15 points, while Regehr has posted two assists in 50 contests.
TFP has also reported that center Derek Roy is being dangled as trade bait, while forwards Brad Boyes and Jochen Hecht could be on the move, as well.
