Found July 13, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
Now that the Sabres have signed D monster Rasmus Ristolainen to his three year entry level contract, its likely that a Nikita Zadorov signing will be soon to follow. That is if you trust history. Last year on this day, the Sabres inked Zemgus Girgensons (14th overall in 2012 entry draft) to his entry level deal. Five days later, they signed Mikhail Grigorenko (12th overall pick) to his...

Regier On Trading Miller And Vanek

from Chris Ryndak of Sabres.com, Starting goaltender Ryan Miller and leading scorer Thomas Vanek are two players that Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said have garnered interest from other teams. Both players are set to become unrestricted free agents at the end of the 2013-14 season. Regier said it would be fair to assess that, with the way the market is now, it’s...

Sabres Sign First Round Pick

© Dan Hickling The first of Buffalo’s 2013 draft picks is now under contract. Eighth overall pick Rasmus Ristolainen has agreed to a three-year entry level contract with the Buffalo Sabres just hours after the team’s development camp concluded. Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said, via press release, that getting Ristolainen under contract was a top priority. “We felt...

Sabres Tease New Third Jersey

At Friday night’s Blue/Gold scrimmage during development camp, the Buffalo Sabres gave fans a glimpse at the newest jersey coming this fall. The video (above) shows what is clearly a gold sweater with blue trim. The primary logo is also shown towards the end, but it’s unsure if that is the main crest or a shoulder logo. The inside of the color as the word “Excellence” as...

Thomas Vanek and Sabres 'suffering'

Wow! This is an interesting post from Fantasy Sports Portal. I guess there are a few NHL teams that need scoring and goaltending would probably take these high-end players off of their hand for the right price.

Locals Not Shying Away from Challenges

On Wednesday, Alex Lepkowski of West Seneca signed his first pro contract to play for the Rochester Americans this upcoming hockey season.  But this week, his focus, as well as other local players, is with the Buffalo Sabres during their annual development camp at First Niagara Center. Lepkowski was drafted by the Sabres in 2011 but was never signed and is again with the team in...

Buffalo Sabres unveil teaser video for gold third jersey

It seems that the Nashville Predators creating a gold home jersey has opened the door for more moden gold jerseys.  The Buffalo Sabres went without a third jersey this year and during their Prospect Training Camp, they released a teaser of what their new third jersey will look like.  This is a great new idea on their part and a great way to sell merchandise.  From the sneak preview...

GARTH: Sound Of Silence

________________________ Its mid-July, and Thomas Vanek is still a Buffalo Sabre. So is Ryan Miller. Its looking more and more like both players will be reporting to training camp in Buffalo in mid-September. On Friday night, Darcy Regier said that its not unusual that there has been very light action this summer on Vanek and Miller. Regier said that its not jus...

Darcy Regier Press Conference VIDEO

Darcy Regier spoke to the media Friday July 13th during the Buffalo Sabres developmental camp.  He spoke on Henrik Tallinder, Nathan Gerbe, Ryan Miller, and Thomas Vanek among other things. The post Darcy Regier Press Conference VIDEO appeared first on Queen City Sports.

Kevin Freiheit: Best Sabres of all-time - part two

Here we go with another set of the top 20 Sabres of all time. If you missed it, here's part 1. #15: Ryan Miller- He has made the Sabres top 20 in my mind. In eight seasons with the Sabres, Miller has surpassed 40 wins twice, and would likely have done it a third time if weren't for Scott Gomez. Miller won the heart of a nation by leading Team USA to the gold medal game...

Kevin Freiheit: Difference makers

It's looking more and more like Thomas Vanek and Ryan Miller will be starting the season in Buffalo. Did Regier wait too long? I believe so. I think the Sabres lost out on trading them simply because many other teams acquired a starting goaltender. Whether Regier was asking too much for them, or couldn't obtain the right pieces he wanted, the Sabres have waited too...

Future of the Blue Line

I was in attendance for the first morning skate at the First Niagara Center, and could not keep my eyes off of the blue liners. Rasmus Ristolainen, Nikita Zadorov and Jake McCabe stole the show. Ristolainen informed local media today that it was either Finland or Buffalo for him this upcoming season.  The 18 year old Fin is not going to Rochester because of his current contract...

GARTH: Iron Will

Zemgus Girgensons has never apologized for the way he plays hockey. His style is raw, loud, aggressive, and in-your-face. His robust style impressed the Sabres so much that they invested one of their two 2012 first round draft picks in the jack hammer. At just 18 years of age, Girgensons became the highest Latvian drafted in NHL history (16 spots higher than Sandis Ozolinsh in 1991) when the B...
