Buffalo Sabres Sign Mike Grier

The Buffalo Sabres have signed free agent forward Mike Grier according to WGR550 in Buffalo.  Grier was a key component of the Sabres run to the Conference Finals in 2006.  He signed with the San Jose Sharks after the 2006 season because he did not feel the Sabres organization was headed in the right direction.

This would be a huge signing for the Sabres if the reports are correct.  The Sabres are not deep on the right side and could really use a power forward to help some of the smaller players.  It will be interesting to see what this means for Drew Stafford and whether the Sabres will still try to sign him.

[Note by D.O., 08/10/09 7:26 PM EDT ]  This was confirmed via the Buffalo Sabres Official Twitter.  I still haven't seen it at Sabres.com.

[Note by D.O., 08/10/09 7:32 PM EDT ]  This is now confirmed at Sabres.com although the terms of the deal were not disclosed.  The terms will be available later on I'm sure.  The deal is for one-year meaning that he will be a free agent again next season.
