from Doug Harrison of CBC,
CBCSports.ca: Do you think you can sign with a team Sunday?
BB: I’m hoping, too, but it’s tough because you don’t have a lot of information [on the direction of teams] before that day. If not, [my agent Pat Brisson and I] will look at the next day.
CBCSports.ca: When negotiating on your behalf, will your agent Pat Brisson speak to this past season as simply an off year and emphasize you have much to offer interested teams?
BB: Pat will probably say that I might not have been in the ideal situation [in Buffalo] playing in certain positions. I know what I can do and what I can bring [to a team].
It was a tough spot for me [in Buffalo] but next year I’m looking at wherever I go to get back to contributing [on the scoresheet], to having fun again, playing a more prominent role and to earn that again, not looking at anyone give it to you.
