Of course this is just a rumor, but the word around the Sabres is they very interested in signing local boy Todd Marchant. Todd Marchant mentioned Buffalo as one place he would like to go as a free agent over the summer. He’s always played well against the Sabres, and it’s been a dream of his to play as a Sabre. Marchant would provide great depth and leadership skills in a mostly young locker room. He is a possible candidate for team captain as well. Just the news of his signing with the team would sell tickets simply because he’s from Buffalo, his production would also sell alot of tickets. His role as a defensive centerman would free up Curtis Brown from his defensive role and allow him to concentrate more on offense. Marchant is also an excellent penalty killer and good faceoff man. He could garner offers up to 3 million over the summer. I would expect the Sabres to offer him a figure around that.
It is likely that Vaclav Prospal has played his last game in Tampa, reports the Tampa Tribune.

Now that the 2002-03 season is in the history books, now is the time of year when every team in the league looks to improve itself via free agency.
