    Marty was one of my favorite Sabres.

    Sign him up to take Rob Rays place next year!

    It'd be pretty awesome to see Biron come here for being the color guy or something. Likes to talk hockey and is pretty interesting/funny.

    Actually, Kypreos just said that Ray will be fired immediately, to be replaced by Marty. He's got to get one right sometime.

    Ahh that Kypreos, he knows everything before it happens. He's so smart (S-M-R-T)

    I'd love to have him back in the fold if he's interested. Make it happen!

    All the best. Still remember watching Marty as a prospect in the Q outduelling JS Giguere's heavily favored Mooseheads, he was spectacular. That Halifax team he beat also had the likes of Patrick Elias and Jody Shelley (who was awesome in Junior, FYI).

    That fight with Emery is and was my favorite memory of Marty B, and I'm sure that I'm not alone.

    Oh, god yes. How skinny, little, amiable frenchy skated out to tangle with Mike Tyson, got ****ing walloped, and then grabbed Emery's leg as he was trying to skate away and tripped him for his trouble. So ****ing good.

    If they don't hire him for TV by the end of the week, they're stupid.

    Note to Andrew Peters: "myself" is only correct when I am the subject, as in "I hit myself in the face with a hammer." It should be, "Marty will join me..."
    Sorry, but I HATE that.

    They don't even have to fire Ray, stick Biron in the booth and Ray won't get a chance to speak!

    I think he would be grabbed by a national TV network. Canadian. Even NBCSN would be smart to pick him up. I think Kevin O. mentioned the same.

    Little doubt you'll see @martybiron43 as network in-studio or game analyst. Just a matter of best fit for him. Get on it, @NHLonNBCSports.

    And neither will RJ or Dan, depending on who's doing PBP...:)

    To follow up on Jacob's post: IF Biron gets hired by NBCSN, if he can take Milbury's spot...all will be well with the world.

    Best wishes to him. Great team player. He would be a hoot in the broadcast booth.

    The problem is I'm not sure Biron would be controversial enough. Milbury's role is to create controversy which grabs attention. Much like Don Cherry on HNiC. People tune in to see what idiocy they spout this time...it's like a trainwreck. You can't look away.

    Maybe Biron will go into coaching: "OK Coach I'll do it just please shut up!"
