Defenseman Marc-Andre Gragnani is the lone remaining restricted free agent of the Buffalo Sabres.
With Jhonas Enroth and Andrej Sekera now signed to fresh new contracts Buffalo can focus their attention on retaining Gragnani and avoiding salary arbitration with the blueliner. "We will probably pick that up with a little more intensity probably over the next week or two," Regier said of negotiations with Gragnani. "Having Jhonas done and Sekera done, I think now we can solely focus on Grags." He remains a talented offensive player with attractive upside, but his role for 2011-12 is a question mark.
