With all the multiyear deals Buffalo has handed out in the last few weeks (Tallinder, Kotalik, Connelly, Lydman, Pominville, Connelly), it looks like the Sabres are intent on keeping the core of the 2005-06 team intact.

As a Sabres fan, I truly hope this means Danny Briere as well. I do not doubt he’ll wear Blue and Gold at least for this season with hopes for a long term deal after January 1.
