Buffalo starting to sign their guys

Since I last wrote about the Sabres signees, they've gotten two more guys inked. Both Andrew Peters and Brian Campbell were slated for arbitration hearings, but avoided them by signing to short contracts. Turns out I wasn't far off the mark in my estimates of their salaries either.

Peters signed a one year deal for $460K. I guessed he would get the league minimum $450K.

Brian "Soupy" Campbell signed a two year, $3M deal that will pay him $1.25M in 07 and $1.75M in 08. I guessed $1.66M. Either way, this is a huge (and well deserved) raise from his $459,800 salary in 06.

I have updated that post, highlighting the players in green as they sign, crossing out my guesses, and indicating the actual amount of their contract. I will continue to do this, just like I did last summer with the list of league-wide players scheduled for arbitration.
