The Bylsma Shuffle

Buffalo Sabres head coach Dan Bylsma earned the reputation of being a habitual line juggler last season. The majority of his line adjustments can be chalked up to the new coach becoming familiar with his club, as in the second half of the season the juggling subsided considerably.

Sabres’ Sam Reinhart happy with move to center

BUFFALO – It was only a matter of time before Sam Reinhart switched positions. With center Jack Eichel injured, Sabres coach Dan Bylsma loaded up his top line early, keeping Reinhart at right wing, this time beside Ryan O’Reilly and Kyle Okposo. Reinhart, however, produced only two assists in four games. The 1-2-1 Sabres, meanwhile, have just 11 goals as a team, six of them in...

We’re going to do the player grades polls every week Last season we tried to do a player grades poll after every Buffalo Sabres game, and it was pretty chaotic. That’s not to say we can’t go back to that again, but it seemed that not too many people were voting. So to open this season, we’re going to do this on a weekly basis, where 3-4 games is a reasonable sample size...

Sabres’ Matt Moulson off to hot start

BUFFALO – The genesis of Sabres winger Matt Moulson’s revival began in the wintertime, long before he started a productive summer of training in which he reshaped his body, helping him add some much-needed speed. Eight or nine months ago, at the behest of management, Moulson changed his work habits as he struggled through an awful eight-goal season. When the Sabres challenged...

Sabres Survive Western Swing

Sabres fans were treated to the return of legendary TV and radio personality Rick Jeanneret on its recent road trip while promising rookie forward Nick Baptiste registered his first-career NHL goal, but Buffalo’s early-season road swing through Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver wasn’t anything to write home about.

Sabres dipping into the prospect pool early

It’s no secret that the Buffalo Sabres have been swimming at the bottom of the barrel for several years now. The benefit to that is that this means that they are able to draft early every year. They’ve collected some pretty solid talent, most notably the currently injured Jack Eichel, the runner-up prize to Connor McDavid last year. The Sabres have 6 players born in 1994 or later...
