Moulson and Ott both enjoy their time in Buffalo, but the Sabres could look to move him for prospects and draft picks and then try to re-sign them in the summer.
Goaltender Ryan Miller, also in the last year of his contract, could be moved by the March 5 trade deadline, as well, but the Sabres want to try and keep him.
Sabres President of Hockey Operations Pat LaFontaine is hoping Miller is willing to sign a long-term extension with the club and the Buffalo News suggests the team will pitch an offer to him before the deadline.
"The most important thing is to listen to what Ryan Miller wants to do," LaFontaine told the News. "Obviously you'd love to keep a great goalie like that. He knows Buffalo. Everybody loves him here but at the same instance I've got to know what he wants to do. If it fits into the plan long term and financially it's a good fit, Ryan Miller will be here. If not, if he doesn't want to be here, we'll make the best choice for the future of our organization."
Murray indicated that just about anybody could be dealt, for the right price, but the team's UFAs-to-be have attracted the most amount of attention.
"Our phones will ring off the hooks here," Murray told the paper.
