Pominville next up for Sabres

From Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News:

Because Pominville will only be an RFA next summer, the Sabres hold a lot more cards with him than Miller or any potential UFA. Still, they want to get him locked up longterm and would be wise to do that before he gets in the 100-point range.

Derek Roy got a six-year, $24 million deal prior to last season. I would certainly say Pominville may be worthy of being a $4 million player as well, perhaps more. How about four years, $18 million? Or maybe, for old times sake, kick the can again for five years-$25 million? (Relax, just kidding. Couldn't resist).

Read the entire post from Sabres Edge here.

Pominville will probably get at least $4 million per season once his contract is up next summer. He is one of the more underrated forwards in the NHL and I can't see the Sabres not re-signing him to a long-term extension.

Ballhype: hype it up!
