Orpik To Buffalo?

Its Possible! Free Agent Defenseman Brooks Orpik could be headed to the buffalo Sabres. His Brother was a draft pick there. Orpik grew up in the Buffalo Suburbs in East Amherst and is familiar with the city. Brooks could be a good fit there and the Sabres need Defence and have cap space to sign the D-man.

My Guess: Orpik DOES go to the Sabres.(SIMPLY A "PERFECT" FIT!)
