NHL insiders will say that the Buffalo Sabres have yet to make a final decision on whether to sign Evander Kane to a contract extension or to ship him out before the trade deadline, but one major hint was revealed on Tuesday that their choice may already be done. 

According to Pierre LeBrun, the Sabres have begun to tell rival clubs that they are willing to absorb part of Kane's salary in order to facilitate a trade. 

The Feb. 26 trade deadline is still weeks away but many more teams will come calling, especially if the Sabres are willing to retain some of his salary. The addition of a sniper like Kane for the playoffs would benefit several teams are this new information could set the table for a significant bidding war.
