Add in that it seems that Ruff has lost any confidence in Adam for many of those reasons and I think the only way Adam sees time in Buffalo this season is if the team goes through another flurry of injuries at the same time - similar to what Mancari's situation is. As it looks right now, it would seem that Porter, Girgensons, Grigorenko, Ellis and Tropp are all ahead of Adam on the depth chart.
