From Sabres Edge blog (Buffalo News),
Tyler Myers has been pretty quiet so far. The Sabres’ big defenseman has no goals and two assists in nine games, not the numbers of an offensive catalyst.
Coach Lindy Ruff said today he wants Myers to be more aggressive joining the rush.
“There’s a little indecision in his game,” Ruff said after an optional morning skate for tonight’s game against Florida. “He had a couple games where I thought he was real good at it, then I thought there was a couple games where the young man looked tired to me, didn’t get there. We pointed out there’s situations where he needs to be there. We’ve talked about that with him even this morning.”

6:45 was all that remained when things went downhill for the Buffalo Sabres.
Buffalo had just taken a 2-1 lead on a powerplay goal by Jason Pominville when Marco Sturm drove Jordan Leopold into the corner boards behind the Sabres net resulting in a five-minute major and a game misconduct, and Drew Stafford took a penalty for retaliation when he took out Sturm.

About 3 weeks ago, Jason Pominville was named the newest captain of the Buffalo Sabres. The move was met with a mixed reaction because Vanek was the odds-on favorite to be given the "C." Vanek was named one of four alternate captains instead. Taking a quick glance at the stat sheet and their play so far, I'd say the dynamic is working...
Sabres hit the ice late this morning.
John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports that injured centre/winger, Jochen Hecht, missed today's skate for what is being termed a "not scheduled".
This begs the question:
Has Hecht suffered yet another concussion setback?
Hecht did not play in a preseason game and has missed all nine Sabres games this season...

For once in my lifetime, I actually agree with Bucky Gleason on something. Bucky wrote the following this morning:
"No matter what senseless blather is drummed up in the community or what you read in the blogosphere or suspect when Miller has a rough night, there is no goaltending controversy in Buffalo. Miller will remain the No. 1 goalie so long...
I've been to a pair of Sabres games this year and they lost both of them, 4-3. I'm planning to make my return on Wednesday against Philadelphia.
As for tonight's matchup against the Panthers, Ryan Miller will get the start in net. He put up 22 saves in a shutout performance against them last time.
With crisp memories of a 3-0 shutout a few games back, the Sabres...
The Buffalo Sabres today announced that the team’s “Road Crew” will make its first “Tour Stop” of the 2011-12 season on Nov. 17 in Raleigh, N.C., prior to the team’s game against the Hurricanes on Nov. 18.
The Buffalo Sabres' Ryan Miller hasn't won since shutting out the Florida Panthers last week.
After getting a day off, it seems likely he'll be back in goal Saturday night as Buffalo seeks a fourth straight victory over the Panthers.
Miller has surrendered six goals on 48 shots in losing two games since making 22 saves in a 3-0 win over Florida on Oct. 20. He has been...
If looks could kill, many people would have been lying on the floor of Thomas Vanek's locker. The Sabres leading scorer was deservedly upset at the third period collapse his team vs. Florida. Another home game. Another third period lead. Another disappointing result.
When asked what is the next step to get his team's heads out of the 300 level and back where it belongs...
The Buffalo Sabres have scored at least three goals in each of their six wins this season and look to continue that trend tonight in the continuation of a season-high five-game homestand versus the Florida Panthers.
4-2 loss in Buffalo comes down to special teams. While the hapless Blue Jackets went a horrid (even for them) 0 of 6, the Sabres went 2 for 3. Conveniently, the margin of victory. Columbus is an unworldly 10% with the man advantage on the season. Despite peppering Ryan Miller's stand-in for 43 shots, the team just cannot score on consistent basis. Jeff Carter is still out. What a mess.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Jason Garrison's goal snapped a third-period tie and lifted the Florida Panthers to a 3-2 win over the
Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night.
Here's a new one. John Vogl of the Buffalo New reports that Lindy Ruff has mashed up his top 6.
Ville Leino is centre for Pominville and Vanek at Sabres practice.
Luke Adam is running with Roy and Stafford.
26-72-29 have been one of the top lines in the NHL this season.
Its an obvious attempt to get Leino out of the doldrums that he's been in for the past...
