    No, and I don't think he will be ready for Tuesday, personally. Hoping I'm wrong.

    So long as he comes back healthy and there are no more issues, I don't really care if he misses the first few games. Still, the season opens with a bang, they can use any help they can get.

    I see. Is it serious? What do you guys make of him this season. Was looking was gonna stick on the top line. Is he a big part of the team this year?

    I agree. He needs his health to maximize his game (physicality)--- obviously.
    He's not going to be on the top line.

    He SHOULD be a major part of this team going forward. My issue with him last year was that he played with such passiveness, such nonchalance, almost as if he was content with the fact that his roster spot was safe. He is best when he plays with tenacity on the forecheck, banging bodies and crashing the net. It has nothing to do with points, or scoring output, production on the scoresheet, etcetera.

    I don't care if he scores 15 points over the year, as long as he plays like he did in his stint the season before last I will be happy. He was energetic, tenacious, gritty, and very tough to play against.

    One of his best attributes was the concept of the space he created for Ennis, and to a lesser degree stafford, by forechecking as he did, finishing every check, working the walls, etc.

    That's what we need.

    As for his injury, I don't know how serious it is, but it didn't look good. I think if it were serious enough that he would miss a lot of time, we'd know as much by now. Sorry to be so unhelpful :laugh:

    Weber had a maintenance day, Rolston says. "He'll be fine." He also says Foligno is expected to be back soon. #Sabres

    I wonder if he's the guy pulled out of the line-up tonight? I assume they pull at least one guy to play Zadorov one last time, probably another to get another game for McBain.

    Weber pulled for zads. No Larsson tonight is very strange. Flynn skating on the second line instead.

    Almost here's hoping for a healthy night.
     
  14. No chance of a stream for this game? Carolina hasn't broadcast any of their pre-season games?

    Tonight's the last night for some of the kids to play their way onto the roster. Hoping to see some spunk.

    I would guess no, but right now would be the best time for his baby to come.

    Could be a maintenance day, because I nearly consider him a lock to make the team.

    Hopefully Rolston addresses that soon.

    Hasn't Larsson played in most of the preseason games? I think he has the most ice time of any of Buffalo's forwards in the preseason.

    I'd say he has locked in a roster spot and that's why he's not playing tonight.

    It seems like the third line and defense will be the only big points of interest.

    It will also be interesting to see how Flynn, Porter, and McCormick do.

    Yes, he has, but Grigorenko is the only player who's played in every single pre-season game.
