When it comes to recalls, the Sabres usually don't make distinctions by forward or defensive position (righty/lefty). If they need a center, they call up whichever forward is playing best regardless of where he lines up in the AHL. Zagrapan's showing in camp is history. He's got to be their best AHL forward to get the call now, and he's clearly not. There's also uncertainty over where he'll play next year. I'd have to bet on the KHL, because there's no way the Sabres are going to give him a one-way tender offer. Unless they really think he can make an impact in Buffalo, the NHL time is going to go to players who will be here in the future.
