Following in the footsteps of so many before him, Martin Biron has stepped up to the plate and has taken a significant cut in pay.
"I am the nuber one goaltender in Florida and I feel that I am extremely important to this team" said Biron. "However, I also understand the financial difficulties that this team is facing, and I felt that I had to step forward and do what whatever I could to help".
Details of the offer were not released, however, it is expected that Biron's new, re-structured contract, will begin immediatly.
"Biron has really stepped up for this club" said Penney. When we aquired him, we felt it was absolutly neccessary to work out a new deal to fit in with this team's current financial situation."
"We finally have him locked up and we are extremely happy about that" said Penney.
It is believed that Biron's contract has been extended over three years.
