The amerks are first and foremost a developmental team in a developmental league. The organization will not have veteran players taking up important roles and prime ice for for good reason: their entire existence is to give the young players the experience in those situations. The Sabres have been using this model for a long time, and as a result they have more homegrown talent than just about any other team in the league.

Why even bother fielding the team if you're going to give the top roles and most ice time to has beens? Nobody gives a damn about the Calder Cup.
