1. He has mentioned he likes the fact his family and friends have been able to attend multiple games this season compared to one or two last year in Raleigh. 

2. He and Botterill have both mentioned how comfortable he feels with the team, something he did not in Carolina. 

3. Darren Dreger mentioned he knows for a fact that Skinner wants to stay in Buffalo 

4. Skinner mentioned in an interview that his contract talks with the Sabres will begin in earnest during the bye week/All Star Break 

5. Botterill mentioned that he wants Skinner to stay and Skinner feels the same way in the Two Man Advantage Podcast from December 

I don't place much importance on 1. or 2. As to Sabel's point, agreeing to be traded here could mean he thought this was the best place to have a nice contract season. If Skinner is openly telling Botterill and media members he wants to stay, that's great news, although a poor negotiating tactic. I hadn't heard about 4. My fear is how the season unfolds could sour him on staying.
