    I also just realized Robin Lehner is a RFA with the Sabres. Those negotiations will be...interesting.

    He might take less to play for someone like Pittsburgh, I want him here though

    He's not coming here though I would welcome him back with open arms.

    If he's referring to Markov then why the "welcome *back*"?

    Didn't Markov just get married? And neck in Russia, too. Traditionally a honeymoon would be a full month and he's not going to be talking contract.

    Speaking of getting married, there was a picture floating around from Cowen's wedding. Gryba, Fisher, Lehner, Boro and Regin were all in the picture. Lehner looked positively fat. If he's back to his old habits he's not going to last very long before he's injured or benched.

    Fisher was not in the picture. Zack Smith was there.

    That's not fat at all lol. Not sure what you're talking about. Most hockey players are not lean anyway, go check out the SI body shoot of the USA girls.

    That's what he looked like when they told him he cane to camp out of shape. He was much leaner next time around, but now it looks like he's back to his eating habits.

    Wow, 1 year, that's a bit of a message.

    DJ Z-Bad gets 5 years at $5.35 per. I guess that's why we traded him.

    There was a guy on twitter saying how Zibanejad is younger and cheaper than Brassard, but he was projecting Zibanejad to come in at $3.9M and using Brassard's cap hit and not his actual salary. There was no way Zibanejad was going to come in at $3.9M. I figured it would be north of $5M for sure.

    That guy is an idiot. I've been seeing his garbage tweets in my feed and all it is is advanced stats.

    Why don't they commit to Fat Lehner? Is it because he's a volatile personality? I think he's perfect for at least 3 years as Buffalo finds themselves.
