Cody Hodgson isn't the only RFA center waiting for the phone call from his agent informing the youngster that his next contract is ready to be signed. Toronto's Nazem Kadri is in the same boat. So it New Jersey's Adam Henrique. Ditto NY Ranger pivot Derek Stepan. Hodgson is in a similar, yet very different spot right now than Kadri is in. The Sabres have $10 million in cap space to...

Leafs' Kadri doing extra work on skating

The story got a lot of mileage back in the winter of 2010 when veteran Maple Leafs had a one-game glance at Nazem Kadri sans shoulder pads and T-shirt.

The chilly bite in the August morning air got me to thinking about the Buffalo Sabres and the daunting task that lies ahead of them in Shocktober. Will the Sabres have a "comforter" to pull over them if the chill in the October air becomes...

Mike Augello: No Progress On Pair Of RFA's
