The Buffalo Sabres are looking to acquire another first round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

That's far easier said than done, but it's worth noting that Tyler Myers' name has been popular in the trade rumor mill on Friday. The Buffalo Sabres control the second overall pick in the draft.

Buffalo has a busy start to the 2014-15 season.

The Sabres have 11 games over 22 days in October before playing a season-high 14 contests in November, where they have four back-to-back sets. From the start of the season through Nov. 5, 11 of the team's first 14 matches also come against clubs who were in the playoffs last year.

The Sabres, who have the second overall pick in next week's amateur entry draft, would love it if defenseman Aaron Eklad fell to them.

Of course they don't expect the Panthers, who have the first pick or anyone team that will trade with the Panthers for that pick, to pass on Ekblad. Buffalo would then focus its attention on one of Sam Bennett, Sam Reinhart or Leon Draisaitl. The first round of the draft is scheduled to take place this coming Friday night. As always, it should be an exciting few hours. Make sure you follow Rotoworld for "real time" coverage and analysis.

The Buffalo Sabres would like to host the NHL Scouting Combine.

Under the Sabres bid, they're inquiring about holding the event for at least the next three years. The Combine has traditionally been held near Toronto, but the NHL has opened the door for other teams to request to host the event.

Sabres' coach Ted Nolan was very happy with the Kings' Stanley Cup victory Friday night.

His son Jordan, a Los Angeles forward, will be showing off a Stanley Cup ring next year at all Nolan get togehters. It will certainly be a happy Father's Day in the Nolan household this weekend.

The Buffalo Sabres will end up with just one of a possible three first-round picks in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

The Sabres had a chance to get the New York Islanders and St. Louis Blues 2014 first rounders from the Thomas Vanek and Ryan Miller trades respectively. However, the Islanders exercised their option of keeping their 2014 pick and instead giving the Sabres their 2015 first rounder. Meanwhile, the conditions that would have allowed Buffalo to get the Blues' top pick in 2014 weren't met.

The Buffalo Sabres will increase their ticket prices by 4% in 2014-15.

That's despite finishing dead last in the NHL with a 21-51-10 record. "We are grateful to our fans for their incredible loyalty and patience through a challenging season," Sabres President Ted Black said. "It's important to us to balance the affordability of our tickets against the opportunity to qualify for league revenue sharing." It's worth adding that season-ticket holders that renew by June 23 will receive a 6.5% rebate in an effort to keep long-term fans during the rebuilding process.
May 7 - 1:57 PM

There will be changes behind Buffalo's bench in 2014-15.

Assistant coaches Joe Sacco, Teppo Numminen, Jerry Forton and goalie coach Jim Corsi will not be back next season in their old roles. Sacco and Forton were offered other jobs on the team, while Corsi was fired and Numminen won't have his contract renewed.

The Buffalo Sabres might already have a player in mind for the No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 draft.

"We have a forward that we have somewhat of a consensus in the group that is at the top of the forward list," said GM Tim Murray. He added that the Sabres will take the best player available, whether it's a forward or a defenseman, but the team does have a pressing need for a player up front. Sam Reinhart or Sam Bennett could fit the bill there. If Buffalo does decide to go with a defeseman then Aaron Ekblad is the best at the position in this draft class.

The Buffalo Sabres and ECHL Elmira Jackals have reached an affiliation agreement.

Rochester Americans is still the Sabres' AHL affiliate. "We're proud to have the Jackals as part of our organization and, with the Amerks in Rochester, we now have the added bonus of working with minor-league affiliates that are no further than 150 miles from Buffalo," Sabres GM Tim Murray said. Elmira was previously affiliated with the Ottawa Senators and New Jersey Devils.

Now that Ted Nolan is no longer the Sabres' interim coach, he will get to hire his own staff over the summer.

Consequently, the Buffalo Sabres will part ways with assistants Joe Sacco, Teppo Numminen, Jerry Forton as well as goalie coach Jim Corsi. Of them, Corsi was the only one to be outright fired, given that Numminen's contract was up anyways while Forton and Sacco have been offered other jobs within Buffalo's organization.
Apr 16 - 2:41 PM

The Buffalo Sabres posted the worst 82 game season since the 2001-02 New York Islanders, but the team still could not secure top overall pick in the 2014 NHL draft.

It's been that kind of year for Buffalo, as they lost out on the top pick during Tuesday's NHL draft lottery to the second-worst Florida Panthers. But the team will still get some much needed help, as top prospects Sam Reinhart, Sam Bennett and Aaron Ekblad appear to be a good bet to help any team with their talents. The Sabres need help everywhere, as they finished 41 points out of a playoff spot and with a goal differential of -91.
Apr 15 - 10:36 PM

With Friday's 3-2 loss to Detroit, the Buffalo Sabres have mathematically secured last place in the NHL.

That's not something they wanted, but they have been out of the playoff race for a long time. At least now they have the best chance of winning the first overall pick in the lottery. Buffalo isn't likely to make the playoffs next season either, but their rebuilding process is well underway and they could take some meaningful steps forward in 2014-15 if they have a productive summer.
Apr 5 - 9:07 AM

The Buffalo Sabres made Ted Nolan's contract extension official on Sunday.

"We are very happy to get this deal done and have Ted Nolan as our permanent head coach going forward," GM Tim Murray said in a statement. "Teddy has proven time and again that he is an exceptional leader, motivator and teacher. He is exactly what we need in a head coach for our hockey team, and we're confident in his ability to guide our players and turn this team around." He took over the Sabres on an interim basis in November and the Sabres have posted a 16-30-8 record since then. The contract is believed to be a three-year deal, which is what was originally reported.
