Date: Team: Pos:

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.

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.

There's a "very good possibility" that Ville Leino will get bought out, according to Sabres GM Tim Murray.

It would be shocking if Murray actually decided to keep Leino after making a statement like that. Leino inked a six-year, $27 million contract that runs through 2016-17. He had a disastrous campaign where he recorded just 15 points in 58 contests.

Tyler Myers suffered two broken ribs back on Mar. 25 when he slid hard into a goalpost in a game against Montreal.

He sat out the last 10 games of the season due to the ailment. The 24-year-old defender feels he needs to step up after another disappointing season for himself and for the Sabres. "Guys around my age in the room definitely have to step up and be the core of this team," Myers said. "It's a young team and we can definitely take steps this summer and become leaders."

Jake McCabe recorded his first NHL point in Sunday's season finale.

He earned an assist and logged a personal high 16:25 of ice time against the Islanders on Sunday. McCabe skated in seven games with the Sabres after he joined the team in April out of college. Look for him to share time between Buffalo and AHL Rochester next season.

Tyler Ennis earned Buffalo's MVP award for the 2013-14 season.

It was voted on by his teammates. He led the club with 21 goals and finished second with 43 points in 80 games. Cody Hodgson beat him for the scoring crown by one point. It was an incredibly disappointing season for the last-placed Sabres, but Ennis did his best to account for offense on a team that struggled to score all year.

Zenon Konopka returned to action on Sunday versus the New York Islanders.

Despite two shots, Buffalo Sabres goalie Connor Knapp was not able to gain a win at the NHL level, as the New York Islanders won 4-3 (SO) on Sunday.

Knapp isn't likely to be a fantasy factor anytime soon, if ever.
Apr 13 - 9:04 PM

Jamie McBain scored but the New York Islanders beat his Buffalo Sabres 4-3 (SO) on Sunday.

McBain finishes with six goals and 17 points in 2013-14. He's still hoping to regain his form from Carolina when he generated 30 points in 2010-11 and 27 in 2011-12.
Apr 13 - 9:02 PM

Nicolas Deslauriers has been summoned by the Sabres.
