Pretty sure the concealment will never be buffed. The early versions of Buffalo had 10.1km concealment which gave it a similar stealth-radar as (new) Baltimore and Des Moines (ie. about 700m between detection and radar range). However, this was changed to 10.5km during the testing period. The reason for the change wasn't mentioned in the dev blog but once something has been specifically altered like that, it is rarely ever reversed.

If it does get a buff, my money is on Rudder Shift. That's kinda the direction they're pushing Des Moines, too, with the legendary upgrade.

Wait till you get Seattle. :)

Buffalo is a pretty good ship imho. Infact its rather fun to go peekaboo in. At best would have enjoyed 1kn higher speed, but then again I do not think WG will make any USN CA that exceeds 33kn, so its all good.

Buffalo is a really strong ship, it doesn't need a buff. Your problem, I suspect, is that your idea of how to play and position high tier USN CA's have been shaped by the three triple turret layout of the New Orleans, Baltimore and Des Moines and you're struggling to bring all 4 to bear effectively without exposing too much and getting rekt. Play it more like you would have a T6 cleveland, your results will be better. 

Don't extend range, go for DPS. And get the words "Expert Loader is a necessary skill for Buffalo" tattooed on the back of your hand.
