Why so they can pick 11th-13th instead of 15th-17th?

How Many games will Miller sit? 3. Sabres put Lalime on waivers, near deadline. He won't report to Portland. Sabres call up Enroth. trade a conditional 7th for some slob to play on the farm.
Lalime plays once this week. Loses, gets sent down.
Enroth plays two down the stretch

How many points do the Sabres need to make the playoffs?
91 minimum. too many 3 point games as the playoffs near.

Will they make it?
yes, barely. at 91 pts, winning tiebreaker w/ Thrashers or something. mostly because they're cursed and unlucky.

How Many goals will Stafford finish the year with?
41.

and what about Vanek?
35.

Will they make any deadline moves to ACQUIRE roster players?
Yes, the goalie switch i'm talking about above.

and I'm wagering that Butler will be sent for a fourth, or a borderline center, mostly to clear way for Gragani down the stretch, and Brennan next year.

and the playoffs (if we make it)
Demolished by Philly that opens old wounds and causes 5 months of message board agita over Briere.

How many points do the Sabres need to make the playoffs? 92. Which will be the number the Sabres get.

Will they make it? Yes, as the 8th seed. Lose to Philly in 6 games.

How Many goals will Stafford finish the year with? 34

Will they make any deadline moves to ACQUIRE roster players? Yes. The will trade a 3rd for Reasoner, and shuffle out Butler for a 4th.

I has none.

How Many games will Miller sit?
3

How many points do the Sabres need to make the playoffs?
34

Will they make it?
No

How Many goals will Stafford finish the year with?
29

Will they make any deadline moves to ACQUIRE roster players?
Yes, but nobody noteworthy.

What will our top scorers stats look like?
Thomas Vanek (30 goals, 62 points)
Drew Stafford (29 goals, 47 points)
Jason Pominville (17 goals, 45 points)
Tyler Ennis (17 goals, 42 points)
Jordan Leopold (13 goals, 39 points)
Tim Connolly (11 goals, 36 points)
Tyler Myers (10 goals, 33 points)

What will happen to Stafford?
We'll either send him to arbitration and end up not being able to afford him, or we'll just sign him to a ridiculous 5 years $4.5 mil/yr deal. Basically, Regier will **** up yet again.
