Skinner focused on Sabres, not contract after being traded

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) The trade to the Buffalo Sabres happened so suddenly, forward Jeff Skinner hasn't had time to think about his contract status.

For now, Skinner is focused on becoming acclimated to Buffalo and his new teammates, rather than what might be in store for the three-time 30-goal-scorer once the final year of his contract expires next summer and he's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent.

"Obviously, the last 24 to 48 hours have been pretty busy, and just trying to sort of get through everything that's going on," Skinner said during a conference call Friday, a day after the Carolina Hurricanes traded him to Buffalo.
