By John Vogl

NEW YORK -- Greetings from the Big Apple, where preparations have begun for today's NHL Draft Prospects Luncheon. Before catching a ferry to lovely Weehawken, N.J., here are some quick hits from the league:

*The Sabres signed Mike Weber, and neither Ryan Miller nor the agent for Thomas Vanek have much to say.

*Buffalonian and Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs tells the Boston Globe the salary cap will rise significantly for the 2014-15 season.

*Ottawa captain Daniel Alfredsson has decided to play one more season.

*Pittsburgh defenseman Kris Letang has turned down a $54 million offer.

*The Chicago Blackhawks have taken out the following ad in the Boston Globe. BN2aglCCQAE-fgv.jpg large
