Watched the Sabres vs Flyers game today on NBC and came away very impressed with the play of Sulzer. With the rapid improvement he's shown since his final season in Nashville, I'd be very surprised if he didn't get a 2-3 year extension to remain Ehrhoff's partner. I don't know if it's the fact that there are so many German-speaking players on Buffalo or what, but he looks so much more comfortable out there than he did with Nashville, Florida or Vancouver.

Very impressed with how much he's improved in the Sabres organization. Shows what kind of impact different environments and coaching styles can have on a player.
