    What he showed seemed fine to good. He belongs in the NHL as a top 6 option. Slotting him as a 1-3 guy, now or in the future is tremendously optimistic; he's found money.

    Yup, I've loved Scandella's game, but I'm of the opinion that Pilut is the better defenseman. McCabe has an A, and Dahlin is Dahlin. Once Pilut is game ready it's got to be Scandella.

    Dahlin-Miller
    Pilut-Risto
    McCabe-Jokiharu

    Pilut practicing is awesome. I'm glad he's back on the ice in full contact as of mid-October. I'm curious how long it will take him to get back to game conditioning and timing, then how soon will he be back to being himself. There is no rush to jettison anyone yet. They have time.

    I fully expect him to be in the Roc for a month or so to get back into the groove of things, but when he's game ready, then he'll likely be the better option than Scandella,imo. He'd also balance the pairs better.

    Scandella has really surprised me, though, and if he continues his play, then it would be hard to take him out of the line-up.

    We’re 100% in the position to slow play pilut’s return and let him return to dominance in the ahl.

    Working from a position of strength is new to me concerning Sabres hockey...

    yep, as long as Marco-Joker continue solid play, slow burn Pilut back in the AHL and let Gilmour continue to ride the pine (until Montour is ready). Great position to be in.

    Can we try the Risto on RW project and just have him listed on the roster as RW/D?

    Ralph hasn’t seen Pilut or Bogo at all in training camp so if he is true to form he will have no reason to remove someone from the roster to play them. Montour did have some time in the new system so Ralph could conceivably put him in over Miller or Joker. But if they told him to find a place to live, there is no room for someone. Something has to give.

    Miller or Joki are not coming out of the lineup, as they’re the second and third best defenders on this team. If it were me, it’d be McCabe, Risto or Scandella coming out.

    McCabe has an A, he's not coming out. Neither is Risto. Scandella's a possibility, but I don't see that happening for Pilut or Montour right now, either.

    Agreed, just saying if it were me, he'd be one of the options. I just don't think he's all that good. Risto/McCabe should be the third pair.

    Will an expanded roster be permitted for the Swedish road trip? I'm sure the Sabres would like to bring Pilut along.

    I was assuming they could add extra players due to the trip. Hammond was called up as well.

    EDIT: Never mind looks like Scandella went on IR

    And he’s not in Buffalo because… Reasons. They need to clear a roster spot for this guy sooner rather than later.
