Sabres get grittier by signing UFA Jeff Cowan.
He looks eerily like one of the Sedin twins, non?
He was signed to a one year, two-way contract yesterday so I'm pretty sure he will be in Portland when the season starts. He has played with many teams (Flames, Thrashers, Kings, and Canucks). Interesting thing to note, he was coined 'Cowan the 'Bra-barian' when at a Lightning game, someone threw a bra on the ice when he scored his second goal of the game for the Canucks. The team later signed the bra and it went up for charity for breast cancer research.
He's a pretty big guy and a veteran presence, so I'm sure he'll be the veteran presence that was lost on the Pirates roster. I hope someone throws a bra on the ice when he scores his first goal with them or the Sabres for that matter.
