Telly is an ideal back-up. Great team guy, and plays very well when called upon. He can't handle the haul of a starter, but is great on short notice. Very good back-up. Extremely popular amongst his teammates. The Sabres are lucky to have him. I'm sad to see him go. I can't understand why Phoenix wouldn't just re-sign him. Fourth round picks are essentially worthless. Telly is replaceable, obviously, but why go throught the trouble? For a fourth round pick? Big whoop.
I totally agree, he's a grat team player, a great guy, BUF made a have nothing to loose with him.
