I, for one, am very relieved and surprised to be quite honest. There’s no doubt he has been the powerhouse behind the team this season with 17 goals and26 assists in his first year with Atlanta. The forward, turned defenseman has done nothing short of amaze the city of Atlanta, and the entire NHL for that matter. The position change is praised by the coaching staff as it looks like it was the right decision.
Lately, Buff’s been in a slump, but now that the contract talk is out of the way, let’s hope he’ll get back to kicking a** and taking names!
** Report from Sporting News is saying the contract is 5yrs/$26 million
