Bryan Trottier will serve as an assistant coach with the Buffalo Sabres next season.

The Buffalo Sabres could be players in free agency.

According to, the Sabres have a team payroll of just $30,419,166, which places them far away from the required floor of $51 million. Buffalo has some roster spots to fill and they may have a overpay some veteran or marginal players to get their cap number up high enough.

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.
Jun 27 - 6:18 PM

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.

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.
May 23 - 8:59 AM

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.
