Ales Kotalik return to Buffalo appears to be a short lived stay. The Sabres announced today that they have put Forward Ales Kotalik, Defensemen Shaone Morrisonn, and Goaltender David Leggio on Waivers this afternoon. Kotalik may end up going back to Europe to play in the KHL. Morrisonn may draw some attention for teams that are lacking depth at defense. Leggio will likely pass through and play in Rochester this season behind Drew MacIntyre. It has been rumored for some time that the Sabres would like have to put Kotalik and Morrisonn on waivers to give the Sabres some breathing room under the cap.
