VIDEO: Matt Bartkowski Knocks Brian Gionta Out Of Game

Matt Bartkowski is 6’1″, Brian Gionta is 5’7″. A lot of hits on Gionta are going to be high due to the simple fact that his head lines up with the shoulders of most NHL players (or rib cage if you are Chara).

Brian Gionta Signs with the Sabers

The Buffalo Sabers and Brian Gionta agree to a 3 year $12.75M deal. Another great move by the Sabers getting a good veteran player that can help your young team and also Gionta was the former captain for the Canadians. I really do like what the Sabers are doing today signing to former Canadians which can help their team out a lot.
