Buffalo Sabres' 3 Worst Contracts of 2023-24

The Buffalo Sabres are making another late season push for the playoffs after moving some pieces around at the trade deadline. This is a young team, but they aren't without their players on bad contracts, whether those contracts are ending after the season or have some term left on them.

Tyson Jost

The Sabres really missed on Tyson Jost as they gave him a chance and he didn't do anything with it. Not only has he played no higher than the fourth line center, he was even waived earlier in the season. The 26-year-old has just two goals and four points in 35 games and he doesn't do anything else particularly special to make up for the lack of offensive production.

Victor Olofsson

Victor Olofsson has both been given much less of an opportunity than last season and not performed up to standards at the same time. With younger players breaking into the lineup and the Sabres option to give them more playing time and opportunities, Olofsson has been pushed to the side and has played on the fourth line and even been a healthy scratch at times this season. He is making $4.5 million AAV this season, his last one with the Sabres.

Eric Comrie

The Sabres have had a three goalie rotation for a chunk of the season, and the only goalie that has worked out is Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen so far. Devon Levi, after spending some time in the AHL, is back with the team, pushing Eric Comrie back to the third string. Even though Levi has played a bunch of games in the AHL this season, it was to get him playing time while Cormie sat on the bench for the majority of the games. Even with a cap hit of $1.8 million AAV, he is 1-7-0 with a.864 SV%. The only reason why he isn't in the AHL is because the Sabres needed someone with some NHL experience backing up UPL while Levi got starts in the minors.
