Keeping Zubrus

Posted 4:29 PM ET | Comments 1
The more I see of Dainius Zubrus, the more I like him.

I know most of the conversations have involved the playoffs, but looking ahead a little bit, if there's any way they can re-sign this guy after the season I'd love for them to do it. I truly believe they will make an effort to sign both Drury and Briere, but if for some reason they can't get both, I'd be happy with Drury and Zubrus.

Now, I'm not suggesting they don't re-sign Briere. I know he's very well loved by almost all Sabre fans, but I think about the type of players coming up the pipeline and I'm thinking there's more in the Briere mold than there are in the Zubrus mold.

Forecasting lines in this scenario:
Roy - Afinogenov - Vanek
Drury - Zubrus - Kotalik
Connolly - Hecht - Pominville
Gaustad - Mair - Stafford

I know it's not at the top of everyone's mind at the moment, but I just wanted to comment that I've been that impressed with Zubrus - I just wish he'd put a few more in the net.

I totally agree about signing Zubrus. I am suggesting they don't sign Briere. You simply can't keep everyone from this Sabres roster. Even if you let a few guys go, like Numminen for instance, you still won't have enough cap room to sign everyone else, especially if you want to have any chance of landing Zubrus. Assuming you resign Drury, you have to evaluate the other players that you have. Fortunately the team is loaded with young, fast, and skilled forwards. What they lack is a talented forward with the size and strength of Zubrus.
