Sabres head coach Dan Bylsma said he'd like to give Rasmus Ristolainen less minutes next season.
It's an interesting idea considering the fact that Ristolainen is arguably the best defenseman on the team. "We put him into a lot of tough situations and I think some of the numbers that roll out on him as far as Corsi and possession do reflect that," Bylsma said, "But frankly we played him too much at times. He's not going to like to hear this, but he's not a guy that should be getting 28 to 30 minutes per night, although we did it to him and we put him in those situations." The 21-year-old had nine goals and 41 points in 82 games last season. Aug 16 - 8:55 AM
