Coming off of the worst season of his career with the New York Islanders, Martin Biron will be looking for a new contract this Summer. General Manager Darcy Regier wouldn't comment on Biron, but said the Sabres will need a veteran goalie.
It couldn't be better timing. Patrick Lalime's two-year contract comes to an end this year, giving Buffalo a couple of options for a backup goaltender.
Two years ago, the Sabres had the exact same decision to make, but Biron signed with the Islanders.
The Sabres missed a great chance to rectify their weakness by signing Marty Biron. The Sabres should have been actively communicating with Biron throughout free agency. He was a well loved and well respected player in Buffalo. He brought a certain amount of "swagger" to the team, and was loved by his fellow players.
He was a leader in both the locker room and on the ice. Watching Biron sign to the last place Islanders for a paltry 1.4 million dollars should be seen as a hugh missed opportunity for Buffalo two years ago.
