That's rough. So now they probably will have him and Aucoin. The Amerks really have no chance to compete with them.

Crap. Marlies are going to be one tough nut to crack.

The Sabres have to respond with something here. I understand winning isn't everything in the AHL, but you have to at least make an attempt. Especially after a division rival, who was better to begin with, has added 2 all stars recently. They have to pick up one more forward.

I wonder if they could kick the tires on Bobby Butler again now that the Sens have bought hiim out. He's shaping up to look like a classic tweener/AAAA guy.

Edit - the Zigomanis deal is reportedly an AHL contract. Pffft.... what the hell.

any guesses on what happens with Nathan Lieuwen next season

i think hes still eligible for another season in the juniors. but its not that bad if he gets sent to the ECHL

How about Frederick Roy, don't really see a spot for him with the Amerks

As an RFA he didn't have many options unless the Sabres walked away. Having said that by all account's on other boards, he would more than likely would have been signed by either Dallas and a couple of others. Devine has stated he was their #1 D prospect before his injury.

This will be a make or break season as a Sabres prospect for him.

No, Leuiuwen is done with the CHL..He's 20/no longer eligible. There's a backup spot open in Rochester for him and Knapp to compete for. Whichever one doesn't make it could go to th ECHL or maybe be loaned somewhere else.

The Marlies have widened the already massive gap between the two teams this summer.

Surely you know that the goal is not to win the division, but to merely make the playoffs by the skin of their collective teeth.

I'm well aware, I follow both as I am a Rochester native. Legault is mostly a waste of a roster pick. I thought Roy would be his replacement

Actually Legault is very good at what he does and will certainly be in top 12. It's a good signing, just adoesn't address the real needs of the team.

They know what they get with Legault though -- he'll go hard and finish his hits. Roy's not established enough yet to know that he's going to displace anyone. Legault works hard, will bleed for the team and if he winds up in the Coast, they have depth when injury and recall happen.

Did I miss the announcement of Schiestel signing here? Was it just not significant enough for its own thread?

Happened a few days ago, might be a few days back. Decent sized conversation on it.

Shouldn't it be "Legault my Leggio"?

Probably if a good NHL offer comes in. But I read an interview with him and there just weren't many good offers.

Some damn slim pickin's left -- maybe they could kick the tires on Graham Mink for another go-around in Rochester. I know he played for the Amerks a few years ago, seems like someone who could fill a top 6 wing position and wear a letter.

Hopefully not any more Stuart or Ellis types in the offing.

Mink, Trotter, Rissmiller, Greentree, Cheechoo or Mark Cullen would all be solid additions to the top 6. There are guys left.

I think this is pretty close to the Opening Night forward lineup. I think one of Ellis or McCormick will be sent down by Buffalo.

Adam/Tropp-Porter-Mancari
Girgensons-Varone-Rankin
Lagace-Sundher-Cody/Ellis
Tarnasky-Schofield-Legault

...with guys like Parker, Szydlowski, and Boychuk in the mix, as well.
