Interesting article on NHL.com today about players expected to bounce back this season:
Surprised to see Ehrhoff on their list, as I thought he was easily our 2nd best defenseman last season. They seem to be basing their argument entirely on points, however, so I guess it shouldn't be that surprising that there is no mention of his stellar play in his own end.
Christian Ehrhoff, Buffalo Sabres -- Ehrhoff followed a career season in 2010-11 by signing a 10-year deal with Buffalo. The Sabres are certainly hoping for better things in Year 2. Ehrhoff dropped from 14 goals to five and from 50 points to 32, missing 16 games with injuries. His plus/minus fell from plus-19 with the Vancouver Canucks in '10-11 to minus-2 last season. The Sabres need the 30-year-old defenseman to be more like the player who averaged 12 goals and 45 points in the three seasons before he came to Buffalo.
