With the 2019-20 season fast approaching, the Buffalo Sabres still have multiple roster issues to figure out. What should the Sabres do with the multiple right-handed defensemen that they have? What does Buffalo do with the second-line center spot? There are other lingering questions as well. The first area to look at is the revamped blue line that general manager Jason Botterill wanted to greatly improve after last season's dreadful showing. With two trades executed during the offseason for Colin Miller and Henri Jokiharju, Botterill did just that. But there is one piece that Botterill should add, and that's Jake Gardiner. The 29-year-old left-handed defenseman still has a lot left in the tank to offer a young, growing team like the Sabres. He has spent his entire career with the Toronto Maple Leafs but is still unsigned in free agency. There are rumors floating around that it may be his bad back or that he needs surgery, but that would have come out by now if that was...

Introducing The Hockey Writers’ Countdown to Puck Drop series. From now until the puck drops on the 2019-20 NHL’s regular season on Oct. 2 when the Toronto Maple Leafs host the Ottawa Senators, we’ll be producing content that’s connected to the number of days remaining on that particular day. Some posts may be associated with a player’s number, while others will be connected to a year or length of time. We’re really excited about this series as we take you through the remainder of summer in anticipation of the return of NHL hockey. Today marks Day 71 and we'll discuss Buffalo Sabres forward Evan Rodrigues. This is fitting because not only is he number 71, he also has his arbitration hearing with the Sabres today. While both sides are more than $1 million apart, it's imperative he is signed. https://twitter.com/WKBW/status/1153617733059321856 Everyone loves a good wing-man. For Jack Eichel, finding one in his young career has been a struggle. Last season, he...

Buffalo Sabres

It's that time of year. The sun is hot. The days are long. Many are enjoying holidays. Even those in charge of the on-ice product of their respective NHL teams are taking things a little easier. Buffalo Sabres general manager Jason Botterill has had a solid summer even though it is, at best, incomplete. Having brought in Ralph Kruger as the next head coach, signed Jeff Skinner, drafted Dylan Cozens and Ryan Johnson and added the likes of Arttu Ruotsalainen, Colin Miller, Jimmy Vesey, Marcus Johansson and Henri Jokiharju, Botterill is poised to launch a revamped Sabres lineup in October. Sabres left wing Marcus Johansson as a Boston Bruin (Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports) He still has work to do. Speculation is rampant that given their current depth on the blue line and the overall need for change in the lineup, Rasmus Ristolainen may be on his way out of town in return for help in the forward ranks. An avenue of player acquisition that has gained popularity in recent...

Martin would likely have played at least five more years... October 16th, 2017
