From the Buffalo News:
The Sabres aren’t allowed to talk to other teams’ free agents until July 1. But the Sabres’ prospects can talk to their brothers, so they’ve got that going for them, which is nice.
Andrew Orpik, the East Amherst native who was the Sabres’ seventh-round pick in 2004, lives with his brother, Brooks, in the offseason…
“I think Buffalo is a place he’d definitely want to come. He grew up here and he’s got a special bond with the place, but like I said, it’s a business, too, and it’s his way of living so we’ll see what happens.”

Speculation will continue all around the NHL as to where Orpik may end up. As of now, it sounds like he’ll stay on the east coast.
