Cody Hodgson says that the past two days have been grueling, in terms of the on and off ice activities at development camp. CoHo says that every attendee is better for having invested fully in the process.

It was a bit of a whirlwind time for Sabres center Cody Hodgson last Spring.
He went from being on a top team in Vancouver to a team fighting just to make the postseason. He was acquired in the middle of a long road trip which required an unusually excessive amount of travel; he had to fly from Vancouver to Buffalo to California. He was also inserted right...
from Kevin Oklobzija of the News and Democrat, For the three dozen prospects of the Buffalo Sabres — from rookie first-round draft picks Mikhail Grigorenko, Zemgus Girgensons and Mark Pysyk to the returning members of the Rochester Americans — development camp started out as a day at the beach.
The players may not like the beach anymore.

Defenseman Brayden McNabb is player that Sabres fans became familiar with quite fast last season.
After a strong start in AHL Rochester, McNabb earned himself a call-up in December when the injury bug began to hit the team.
His 25 game stretch in the NHL earned him the respect and admiration of the Sabres faithful for his big hitting and...

Navy SEALs earn their stripes through brutal training that typically stretches over 30 months.

The sessions have commenced bright and early at 4:30 a.m. each morning on Woodlawn Beach outside...
Add the Buffalo Sabres to the long list of teams that have shown interest in unrestricted free agent Shane Doan.

Darcy Regier, Lindy Ruff, James Patrick, Teppo Numminen, Kevyn Sdams and the Sabres scouts look forward to days like today. The reaseasrch and due dilligence has been done. The drafting and player acquisition deals have been complete (for now). Now its time to sit back, in a controlled environment and to gauge the progress of all the young dudes that the Sabres have opted to add to their alrea...
Hockey is still a little over three months away. Once in a while I like to take a look back at past Sabres moments and relive them. That's what I'm going to do today.
Below is my summary of a game between Buffalo and Philadelphia that happened on October 17th, 2006.
At the start of the 2006-2007 season, the Buffalo Sabres were off to a perfect 5-0 start...
Tyler Myers. Christian Ehrhoff. Robyn Regehr. Jordan Leopold. Reggie Sekera. Alex Sulzer. Mike Weber. Adam Pardy.
Eight, count 'em eight bonafide NHL D already have their names written on Lindy ruff;s dry erase board.
Brayden McNabb doesn't like the math. Why should he. He played in Buffalo's top 6 last season. No rookie jitters. No fear factor. No mistakes. The...

With 10 blueliners who played NHL minutes last season, the Sabres have basically become the Costco for NHL defensemen this offseason.
When Adam Pardy came over from Dallas via trade, he gave the Sabres eight NHL defensemen with two more prospects prepared to jump to the NHL this season. Based on the ridiculous level of depth the Sabres have, it isn'...
