Very happy for @kporter12 signing a deal today with Buffalo Sabres. They will be glad they did. #greatplayergreatteammate

He's an agent, presumably Porter's

This is not confirmation

sabrefan27 07-05-2012 03:22 PM

Is it an Amerk signing? If so, probably a good one but he's been a full time NHLer for a couple years.

Has he really?? I know he was with Colorado last year. I was under the impression he's been up and down a lot.

I would classify it as "up in the air" and assume he has a shot at making the team, otherwise would be in Rochester. But either way it pushes someone down to Rochester: himself, Ellis, Tropp?

From yesterday, pre-Parise signing:

I know everyone is waiting on the big NHL free agent decision...and @kporter12 will likely have an answer tomorrow. Enjoy your July 4th.
At least his agent has a sense of humor :laugh:

BoxOfChocolates 07-05-2012 03:28 PM

Keep him in the minors.

SackTastic 07-05-2012 03:28 PM

Hey, people wanted a center from Colorado, right?

La Cosa Nostra 07-05-2012 03:28 PM

Is this the Porter from Colorado?He could probably play on one of the bottom 2 lines, good signing if it is.

SabresAreScaryGood 07-05-2012 03:28 PM

I would say this guy is penciled in as our 4th line center.

S319R11S16 07-05-2012 03:28 PM

Hope it isn't a Sabres signing.

Congo Jack 07-05-2012 03:29 PM

Just wanted to tell you guys that it'd probably be best if this was an AHL signing, he was awful when he was with us.

We have a few options for the 4th line now so I think it'll come down to who wins out in camp. I would say he's on the outside looking in, though, and would be a better help to Rochester than the alternatives would.

Who pushes him to the outside? McCormick?

Maybe, but I don't think the transition from NHL to AHL is that difficult. :sarcasm:

He should be a top scorer in the AHL if he indeed does go down there.

sba 07-05-2012 03:34 PM

You can mark this confirmed, that is indeed his agent.

DixonWard15 07-05-2012 03:34 PM

Kevin Porter ‏@kporter12
Flying to Buffalo early tomorrow morning. Happy 4th everyone.


that was 17 hours ago

gallagt01 07-05-2012 03:35 PM

I know next to nothing about this guy other than that he came through the NCAA. I thought he was still in PHX.

Does he play hard? Toughness?

Pegula and Lindy choppered to his summer home and talked him into signing.

Congo Jack 07-05-2012 03:36 PM

One good thing about him is he is a Canuck killer!



....well the Canuck knee killer http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1048601

McCormick and Ellis could beat him for 4th line duty as the coaches trust them, they trust Ellis on the PK, and McCormick throws down, but I must admit I've never noticed this guy on the ice before so I can't speak to him.

Plus we may still be adding another center and Grigorenko may or may not make the team, which could tighten the fight for the 4th line/extra forward spots.

Girgenburger 07-05-2012 03:37 PM

Hey, this dude's a pretty good 4th liner. If they really signed him I think he's got a shot at the 4th line C. Not as physical as McCormick, but the guy can play hockey better.

thefifagod 07-05-2012 03:37 PM

If he's in Rochester, great. If he's in buffalo, sigh. He was awful in Colorado and I don't think he's an NHLer
