Thanks for tying this all together. I was looking for a camp roster. I'm surprised that the Sabres aren't bringing in more players, considering what other teams are doing.

Those first four lines work for me so long as Grigorenko is around and playing up to par. That's a pretty damn solid 4th line, frankly.

Who'd they bring in though? If you mean guys from Rochester it's kinda pointless to take players from them when they're not going to make the team. None of the other juniors players are worthy of a look at this point. I like it -- lean group of players that can get all the staff's focus.

Bure 01-13-2013 11:12 AM

Really putting grigo in a position to succeed; lets see what he's got.

From a "new" NHL fan, thank you. These are the lines everyone pretty much figured we'd see, correct?

Vanek - Hogsdon - Pominville
Foligno - Ennis - Stafford
Leino - Grigorenko - Ott
Gerbe - Hecht - Kaleta
Scott - Ellis - McCormick

How do you feel about Brennan's chances to make the team? I've been to quite a few Amerk games this year (from Rochester) and I've been impressed with him more times than not (but again, I don't know the little stuff to look for). But there are times where he seems to disappear.

Also, do you think guys like Porter and Girgensons (depending on the severity of the injury he suffered versus Syracuse last night) have a chance of seeing time in Buffalo this year?

A lot of vet players, but I guess since Mancari and Tarnasky had 2 way contracts pre-lockout, they don't have to come back up to go through waivers like Brennan.

Normally Brennan would have a great chance to make the team but I think we just have too many NHL dmans, once injuries start happening Porter will probably be the first Oman called up, Girgensons not so much just because hes so young don't push it let his game mature one does not simply jump from ushl to the NHL

Brennan either makes the team or gets traded. No other option.

Don't expect to see Girgensons unless he really starts turning it on like Foligno did in his AHL rookie season last year. And that's a longshot, considering Girgensons is maybe 2 years younger than Foligno was, but who knows what happens once he continually gets more ice time.

Porter would surely be the first forward call-up. Brennan might make the team but it'll depend on how many extra forwards vs defensemen they carry. It's unfortunate that he has to clear waivers to go back to the AHL as some team would likely claim him. We'll see if Darcy makes any defensemen trades or sends down/waives/trades one of the spare forwards (like McCormick), as well as whether or not Grigorenko sticks. Right now there are 3 extra forwards and 3 extra defensemen.

McTank 01-13-2013 11:33 AM

I think brennan makes itt, he's to good to not take over sulzer or weber

Unless he's improved a tremendous amount dice last year, most noticeably in skating than na

Puddy 01-13-2013 11:53 AM

Looking forward to John Scott. Not sure if he gets into game 1 vs Philly, but pretty sure he gets a few shifts during the Jan 31st game. Old time hockey!

Pretty much as expected. If Hecht is really healthy, and Grigorenko is NHL-ready, that bottom 6 honestly isn't too shabby. Still not overwhelmingly gritty, but lines 2-4 each have one real grinder on them.
Can't wait to see if F-E-S can continue the magic and how Grigs does.

Love this so much. First day at practice as a rook and he's out there with one of the vets working on his faceoffs. He's doing everything he can to make this team.

Wonder how grigs did against NHL defense

Was skating really an issue for him? I thought the issue was his defensive game.

So with this in mind we are looking at 1 forward cut and 2 dmen (with the 9 in camp).

Depends on if Gerbe/McCormick start on IR (regular one)...they are in the practice lineup but to what degree they are able to play we haven't had any update.
