Jeff Skinner Steal Update

The Jeff Skinner trade this offseason has been paying off. Greatly. He’s currently tied for second overall with 14 goals and has 21 points on the season. He's been a major player for the Sabres this year and has been contributing greatly to their newfound success.

And it looks like he wants to stay here for a long time as well.

Recently surfaced rumors are saying he wants a 7-8 year deal with 9-9.5 million per year. I think the number will be closer to 8.5 or 8.75 a year, but we gotta pay this man whatever he wants. When was the last time we had a consistent scorer like him? Vanek? Briere? Drury?

Jason Botterill better pay this man and lock him up for the foreseeable future.

Buffalo hockey is back.
