The Buffalo Sabres are counting on David Legwand to be a leader for their young players this season.
Legwand was acquired from Ottawa during the off-season, and although he won't contribute much offensively, the Sabres believe he can help in other areas. "David's definitely into the veteran category of his career, but he's always been a guy who is kind of a straight-line-skating guy, up and down," coach Dan Bylsma said. "There's not a lot of flash and there's not a ton of - I know he's going to read this and comment on it tomorrow - but there's not a ton of playmaking, there's not a ton of hockey sense. He's a fast skater, an aggressive skater. He's a smart hockey player, and that's how he's got to play." Legwand can certainly help young centers like Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart transition to the NHL. Sep 20 - 8:31 AM
