Following Sabres practice today, Don Granato indicated that the lines that were on the ice together today are likely to be the lines Sabres fans will see on opening night. The lines were reported as Asplund and Okposo centered by Girgensons; Skinner and Olofsson with Thompson; Tuch and Quinn with Mittlestadt; and Krebs and Peterka with Cozens. The odd line out would appear to be Bjork, Sheahan and Hinostroza.
The Buffalo Sabres intend to name a full-tile Captain for the first time since 2020. There are several solid candidates as well as a wealth of talented young players with leadership experience.
Sabres fans with tempered and reasonable expectations should enjoy the season and see consistent growth, development and competitive attitude.
