At the time the Sabres were really concerned with being known league-wide as "farm-team," so they saw it as a no-brainer to match.

If I recall correctly, Drury and Briere were looking for about $5M per year from Buffalo prior to their respective final season with the Sabres, but didn't get it...only to be offered it when they were about to become UFA, but at that point they wanted to test the market.
