I won't tell Sabres fans to be happy about it but I won't tell them to be dismayed either.
In other words, he's the perfect depth signing for insurance against injuries while helping the farm team out. That's fine with me - it's more or less a signing to make up for the loss of Szczechura leaving the organization and gives the Sabres another option besides Matt Ellis to recall when injuries hit, IMO.
