Anders Lindback is interested in coming back to the Sabres next season.
"This is a thing I do want to be a part of," he said. "You never want to be last overall in the standings, and I know that's not going to be the case the next couple of years in this organization. I want to be somewhere I can get a chance, and I really, really like it here." There haven't been any contract discussions yet between the two sides. Lindback posted a .924 save percentage and a 2.76 GAA after he was acquired from Dallas. He is eligible for unrestricted free agency. If Buffalo doesn't bring him back then they will seek another netminder on the free agent market or perhaps look to acquire one through a trade. Apr 28 - 8:36 AM
