Biron signs $4.1 million deal with Sabres (http://www.rochesterdandc.com/sports/general/0809story8_general.shtml)


(August 9, 2002) — BUFFALO — Goaltender Martin Biron of the Buffalo Sabres avoided salary arbitration on Thursday, signing a two-year deal that will pay him $1.9 million next season and $2.2 million in 2003-04.

Biron, who tied a team record by appearing in 72 games last season, earned a huge raise over the $750,000 he made last year.

"Everything is awesome," Biron said. "I've got a month to get everything out of my system, the jitters, and look at training camp as a step forward."

Sabres general manager Darcy Regier is counting on Biron to build upon last season.
