Hey, more awesome Sabres news! According to the venerable Bob McKenzie over at TSN, Tyler Myers (along with the Islanders’ John Tavares) is very close to signing a 6 yr contract extension, worth around $5.5mil per year. If true (and if there’s anyone out there I’d trust for this, It’s Bob McKenzie) that’s a great number for Myers and the Sabres, and it clears out one potential bit of drama for next offseason. I for one certainly don’t want to have any Stamkos-esque “hey what if we sign Myers to a huge offersheet? I’ll hang up and listen” garbage from other fanbases. Tyler has quickly become one of the faces of the team along with Ryan Miller, and is a key component in making and keeping this team a Cup contender. I may seem like a broken record saying this, but I can’t wait for the season to start!
