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.

Michel Therrien on Brian Gionta: "Our captain was crying in my arms"

I'm sure it's crushing for a captain of a playoff team to re-injure himself. It must be doubly crushing for Montreal Canadiens captain Brian Gionta, watching his team go down three games to one against the Ottawa Senators. Knowing that thanks to a surgery to repair a torn left bicep he won't be back until training camp, and then realizing that his team is on the cusp...
