That's why this signing is also bad, not just based on the fact he's injury prone.
I dont get it either. They werent going to sign him for longer term. The shorter term at a higher amount is what happened.
If he plays well and earns it, then the Sabres did well. If not, then they took a calculated risk (for only two years) and it didnt pay off. Happens all the time.
He will be the no. 1 center. It creates a trickle down, with Roy centering the second line as a 70-80 point a year guy. If they dont sign him, they have Roy and.....nothing.
