Biron was close to returning to Buffalo

+

Despite the Olympic-year schedule, he still would've had a tough time getting meaningful minutes in Buffalo. For his next contract, he made the right choice -- as long as he delivers.

Florida Signs Dennis Seidenberg: $2.25M

>>Past (and future?) Islander Miro Satan on having his day with the Cup in Slovakia. Katie Strang, taking over Newsday's Islanders beat, has the latest scraps on Satan (and his Twittering agent) trying to coax a bid from the Isles.
