BillHoppeNHL Forgot to tweet this earlier ... I asked Lindy about Ville Leino and the #Sabres worrying about him missing the season "I guess the answer would be yes because he hasn’t played yet and we’re trying a different type of treatment again for what he has. You hope you can gain some traction with it. The answer is I don’t know right now."
Rochester recalled Lagacé from Bakersfield (ECHL), so perhaps the Sabres pulled someone off the plane to Abbotsford in anticipation that one of the injured players who missed practice today won't be ready to go tomorrow.
