They're getting Tarnasky, Schofield, and Hodgson back tonight, and presumably that would have bumped some the PTO guys off the roster.
That's not AT ALL what I've said. You can twist the argument to suit your needs all you want, doesn't make it fact. I wanted the Sabres to bring in some forward help when they had SIX forwards injured. Too much to ask? Apparently so. And Hodgson is not coming back tonight and it doesn't sound like Tarnasky or Schofield will either. Possibly Girgensons.

Seems legit.
Yes, I'm pissed that the organization would go into Toronto with only 10 forwards. That is not how well run organizations operate. I've watched and followed enough AHL hockey over the years to see how PTO's and injury replacements work. Guys are ROUTINELY brought in just for weekend games.
