'"I've always wanted to play for Buffalo," Marchant said last week. "I grew up here. I grew up watching these guys play. I have a home here. My family is from here. It would be a great situation, but there are more factors to it. I'm not going to lie; money is a factor. The term of the contract is a factor. You only get an opportunity like this once in a lifetime, and we're going to take advantage of it. Whether it was a mistake by (the Oilers) or an opportunity for us, we're not going to let go."'
