Buffalo Bills News
The MVP runner up signal caller Josh Allen has received a blessing from the Bills organization as Allen was on the receiving end of a six year 258 million dollar contract extension. The extension makes Josh Allen the second highest paid QB in the league. This very exciting moment was well deserved. The surgical gunslinger threw for over 4,500 yards with 37TDs passing and 9 TDs on the ground.
The Bills also received alot of media attention and alot of questioning from Bills Mafia as a story hit the press that the Bills owners Terry and Kim Pegula were considering moving the Bills franchise to Austin, Texas. This news was very disingenuous as some folks believed the story was motivated as a ploy to produce funds from Erie County to pay for a new 1.1 billion dollar stadium.

Buffalo Sabres News
The Buffalo Sabres has been in the news this week as former netminder Robin Lehner expressed that the Sabres organization mishandled his injury when he was apart the team. Why is this important? The Sabres and Sabres captain Jack Eichel have been in disagreement on whether Eichel should have surgery on his neck. The talks have also introduced the idea that Eichel could be traded. Eichel missed the final 33 games of the 2020 season as the Sabres finished last in the league
The Sabres have made some interesting moves as they added Will Butcher, Mark Pysyk and Robert Hagg to strengthen their defenseman corps. Hopefully these new additions will be inspired to win hockey games as the lackluster performances have to cease sooner than later.
