Morning Links: Sabres Bring Back Grier

The big news of the day was the signing of Mike Grier.  It shows the Sabres commitment to becoming a bigger and tougher team.  It's a curious signing because Grier didn't leave Buffalo on the best of terms.  He criticized the organization and questioned the teams commitment to winning.  I have to think that Grier felt he was out of options or he wouldn't have come to Buffalo.

You don't hire Paul Cambria if you did nothing wrong. He will be cleared because the cab driver now has an opportunity to get out of a thankless job. I would let Kane beat me up for a cool million.

I was surprised when I heard the doctors were cleared. Maybe this means they shouldn't have been cleared afterall.
