Signing a big time AHL center could take away from PP TOI for Girgensons in all likelihood.

Whereas getting him a big time AHL winger could help speed his development.

Granted, the vet rules automatically make the development slant more. But, whether you add bottom 6/pairing vets versus top of the lineup guys will affect what challenges your prospects get.

The Sabres have yet to take the Chicago Wolves type approach. It will be interesting to see if they ever do.

The whole Sabres U shtick and Roloson as the coach have me thinking that it isn't on the immediate horizon.
