The Sabres keep one of their own and pay extra to keep him off the market. If they dont sign him, they have a void to fill, and would have to pay major free agent money to fill it or give up a piece of the puzzle in place.
Sabres feel the risk is worth the reward and time will tell.
Ill take the risk, but am not dancing up and down totally excited.
My thoughts exactly.
Name me another player who:
A)Is a playmaking center
B) Is pretty much PPG
C)PP Specialist, plays PK as well
D)Makes 4.5 Million
(I REALIZE THIS IS ALL BASED ON TIM BEING HEALTHY)
