Today is another Buffalo Sabres game day, at this point of time I’m not sure if fans are still excited about that or not with all the suffering, but never-the-less the boys are back in action tonight for their fifth game of the season. The Sabres will be looking for their first win of the season when they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets.
But before we get into game talk, let’s take a look around the NHL shall we?
In today’s NHL it’s all about the money for a lot of players and sticking with one club for your entire career means little to nothing. If another club is offering the money you can ditch your old club faster than you ran up to stage on draft night.

The Sabres are giving lots of rookies a chance to prove themselves early on this season. There’s a strong inkling Nikita Zadorov may get his first NHL action sometime this weekend which would bring the Sabres rookie chart up to 6. Mix in Joel Armia when he’s healthy and that brings 7, count Brian Flynn and the Sabres have used 8 rookies. I guess patience and suffering really do go hand in hand. Here are the top prospects people are excited to see hit the NHL. [Bleacher Report]
