TSN and Sportsnet are both reporting that the Sabres have signed goalie Patrick Lalime. It appears that Buffalo has themselves a steady backup for Ryan Miller. I never gave much mention to Lalime because I thought he was out of the price range of Buffalo for a backup but the team thought that $1 million per season was fair market value for a backup goalie. I only budgeted $750K for a backup but Darcy said the team would spend $50 million this season so he fits in my plan.
Let's hear it folks...what are your thoughts on the Sabres first free agent signing.
