Sabres extend Tyler Myers

Defense continues to be the focus of the Buffalo Sabres, at least for this year.  The team has announced that Tyler Myers has signed a seven year deal, keeping him in Buffalo through the 2019 season.

Cap crunchers need not fear, the new cap hit for Myers does not hit until next season, as his current deal must be played out before the extension kicks in. 

Another sign that this team is headed in a vastly different direction than years previous, where contract talks would have exteded into the season, or waited until next off season.
