Sabres hope they've bottomed out with season over

(Continued)

The Sabres can pick no worse than second, and have a 25 percent chance of landing the No. 1 selection in the NHL draft lottery, which will be conducted Tuesday.

Murray is essentially starting from scratch in rebuilding a team through youth.

Leino is the only returning veteran whose status is uncertain. Though Leino has three years left on his contract, he's regarded as a potential buyout candidate after three mostly under-performing seasons inBuffalo.

"I think probably everybody needs to step back for a second and think about what's smart here," Leino said, referring to his future. "To be honest, I haven't been thinking about it that much. I just wanted to get the season over and then look at it again."
