...With 13 forwards on one-way contracts, the Senators have 48 hours to decide if theyíre going to exercise their right to buy out a player ó in this case it would be Butler ó after settling with somebody who filed for arbitration.

Scheduled to make $1.2 million in 2012-13, Butler, 25, can be bought out at just one-third of his contract because of his age. The cap hit would be $200,000 over the next two years, but thatís much cheaper than him playing in the minors on a one-way deal.

Under the terms of the CBA ó which doesnít expire until Sept. 15 ó the Senators have until Wednesday to decide if they want to buy out one player. Teams donít use the tactic often, but it is available to GM Bryan Murray.

Looks like NJD plan to give Butler a solid chance to make the Devils this year.
