    Great news. I’d love to know how much and for how long; but I have to assume its 750k for no more than 2 years. Wonder if Byers accepted a two way deal or if its 1 way? that’d be telling…

    I hope this gives him a strong chance for a roster spot, i think he can bring alot to this team. I’d love to see a line of Weise – Prust – Byers, though if Prust isnt strong enough up the middle then maybe mix it up a bit.

    I’d assume that Sather is going to look to trade The People’s Champ since Byers will be considerably cheaper.
