Steve Ott of the Buffalo Sabres thinks so in a story from Dan Rosen of NHL.com on division and conference realignment.

Travis Yost: Beware the Volatility

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- I got into a bit of an interesting discussion a couple of days back concerning a few of the current defensemen on the Buffalo Sabres roster, and because it's a weekend in early-September, I thought it a decent time to address it (and, bring attention to a larger point that really applies league-wide for every team).
