SABRES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Is Colorado’s rise a fair example of what might happen in Buffalo?

The Buffalo Sabres are frankly expected to be one of the worst teams in the league in 2014-15. It’s easy to see why: They’re a rebuilding club coming off of a season where they posted a 21-51-10 record. They could have added six wins last season and still finished in last place. For that matter, they could have scored 37 more goals and still ranked 30th offensively. The short...

from Katie Strang of ESPN, The 40-year-old Lalime, who holds the Senators franchise record in career wins, said he thinks Anderson will come into training camp with top billing but that the two players will push each other in a healthy competition. Anderson, 33, posted a pedestrian .911 save percentage last season but recorded an NHL best .941 in the lockout-shortened 2013...

NHL Draft Lottery rules punish bad teams instead of rewarding them

Just when Buffalo Sabres fans thought the future looked pretty good, the NHL had to step in and ruin it.

Sabres’ Stewart to enter season with a chip on his shoulder

One could argue that power forwards are streaky by nature, yet Buffalo Sabres forward Chris Stewart still ranks as a stark example of “feast or famine.” The 26-year-old seems just as likely to suffer a penalty-minute-fueled meltdown as he is to score a tide-turning goal. The storyline almost seems tired by now: the big winger hopes to silence his critics and find the consistency...
