Not that it should come as a big surprise, but the agent for Michal Neuvirth says there have been no contract extension talks with the Buffalo Sabres.
Patrik Stefan, former NHL player and now a certified player agent and the representative for Neuvirth, confirmed with me by phone today that Tim Murray's assertion yesterday on local radio is true.
I asked Stefan if his client wanted to be a Sabre next season or if he was looking to test the market this summer, but he didn't want to get into that.
"I'm just going to say there have been no contract talks and leave it at that," Stefan said.
There is a strong possibility that Murray is attempting to trade Neuvirth, especially after saying on multiple occasions he won't allow UFA's to leave with no compensation for the Sabres.
Neuvirth, 4-16-3 this season with a 2.99 GAA and .917 save percentage, looks like the X-factor right now in the "race" for 30th place. He stole a win for the Sabres against Nashville the other night and is slated to start as many games as his body will let him play, according to Ted Nolan.
