Four More Years, for Jochen Hecht

The Sabres have signed a four year contract extension for Jochen Hecht which will take effect at the beginning of next season. The organization seems to have a great deal of trust in the temporary captain and apparently have deemed it important to resign him to a longer deal. The Sabres now have three players with relatively long term deals, with Vanek and Roy being the other two.

This contract actually comes as a change for the Sabres organization, in that this is the first time in quite a while that they have been willing to sign a deal with a player while still in season. I've always agreed with the merits of that policy, although for some time it's looked as if I've been the only one. If the Sabres want to abandon that policy it's their right to do so...
