2010 NHL Free Agency: Buffalo Sabres sign D Jordan Leopold

Jul 1, 2010, 5:45 PM EST

Leopold.jpgThe Buffalo Sabres lost two defensemen via free agency, but managed to fill that void by signing free agent defenseman Jordan Leopold — who finished last season with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The financial terms haven’t been disclosed just yet, but it’s a three-year contract for another one of the more underrated defensemen on the market as more and more blueliners get big deals today.

Leopold has been a trade deadline piece the past two years, first going from Calgary to Florida in 2009, then heading from Florida to Pittsburgh this past spring.

While losing Lydman and Tallinder hurts, gaining Leopold should help the transition just a bit.

    Buffalo should not sign Ilya kovalchuk!
    We are a good team of playoff underachievers we need some to break that mould not someone who fits our current mould.
    We want to win for a change!

    That’s Jordan Staal, a player who isn’t gonna be in Buffalo. Ever.
