Guys who I think have a place on this team for the new GM:
Vanek
Grigorenko
Hodgson
Myers
Ehroff
Ennis
Pominville
Miller
Foligno

Guys Who I think new GM MIGHT keep
Leino
Ott
Sekera
Stafford
Kaleta
Pardy

Guys I think new GM would rather cut ties with
Leopold
Regehr
Enroth
Scott
Weber
Adam
Hecht

We basically would be looking at 6-11 spots open to tweak our roster for the new GM to come in and make HIS team. I don't think that is that bad of a start but obviously what he does with it could make this team a contender or continue on the road to mediocrity.

We could be looking at:

Two Top 6 Forwards(Top 6 Center with Two-way capabilites)
4 Bottom 6 Forwards (continue Grooming Grigorenko with increased playing situations)
Two Top 4 Defenseman(Either as a pair, or to play with Myers or Ehroff)
3rd Pairing Defensemen
Backup Goaltender

Thats a lot to cover for a new GM and it is very hard to know if the answer to some of these holes are already on the team or not, looking at our team, we are further away from being a contender than what some people thought, and apparently what Darcy thought. Watching some our prospects I feel, most if not all are still at least one year away from making an impact where some teams seem to have that prospect who is ready to step in. Armia is our most talented prospect not on the Sabres roster, and I still think he is one year of AHL play away from coming up.

What I see right Now on this team:

Vanek-Hodgson-XXX
Ennis-XXX-Pominville
Foligno-Grigorenko-XXX
XXX-XXX-XXX

XXX-XXX
Ehroff-Myers
XXX-XXX

Miller
XXX
