From what I understand, he was talking about the Sabres penchant to fore-check more heavily than most teams and to pinch with their defense-men, thus leading to more chances going the other way than most teams.
The Sabres do not at all forecheck more heavily than other teams. They involve their defensemen once the cycle is established/on the rush, but rarely are they sending two forwards below the goal line for puck pursuit.
