The Bisons’ final home game is tonight and the Sabres are two weeks away from the start of training camp. Crazy. You may be fretting over watching Jeff Tuel or Matt Leinart play some Fraud Football tonight. I’m thinking hockey.

• The New Jersey Devils signed Adam Henrique to a six-year $24-million contract Monday and that’s bad news for the Sabres when it comes to unsigned restricted free agent Cody Hodgson.

The Sabres’ likely No. 1 center is looking for a long-term big-money deal at a time when the club would clearly prefer giving him a “bridge” contract to follow up his entry-level pact. Think the two-year $5.6 million deal that Tyler Ennis signed in 2012.

Hodgson Henrique Nazem Kadri of Toronto and Derek Stepan of the New York Rangers were all in a similar boat with their teams waiting it out and seemingly not wanting to offer the big money. Henrique may have set the kind of market price the Sabres want to go nowhere near.

Nor should they. Henrique was a Calder Trophy finalist in a year when his team went to the 2012 Stanley Cup final — and he became the first rookie ever to score two series-clinching overtime goals. Hodgson has yet to show he’s anywhere near that kind of player and his defensive-zone metrics were among the worst in the NHL last year.

Hodgson’s agent is Ritch Winter who has a history of contentiousness with the Sabres dating back to his days as Dominik Hasek’s representative. Winter and Darcy Regier have spent the summer talking with no success.

His agent will say otherwise but Hodgson doesn’t have much leverage here based on past performance. He should take the bridge deal get in camp and prove his worth so that in two years he can take his real kick at the free agent can.
