The Buffalo Sabres skate tonight and look for their first win of the season. How long before changes are made in the organization? I know there are many out there who still want to clamor for patience as we suffer through the rebuild, but I still stand by the fact that someone who has screwed up can’t fix the problems on this team with the same hockey vision as when he started the job. For that reason, the check engine light remains lit on this franchise. Here are your daily links on the National Hockey League and the Buffalo Sabres.

The Buffalo Sabres are cosponsoring a bid to bring the NCAA Frozen Four back to the area for the first time since 2003.

The Buffalo Sabres are still mishandling Mikhail Grigorenko – who is proving why he dropped in the draft from a top five pick to the number 12 (if it wasn’t for Buffalo how much further would he have dropped) – its like having your mechanic tell you your tires are bare and need to be replaced. Buffalo’s response? Just rotate them, I’ll be fine for a few thousand more miles. [Bleacher Report].
Bobby Orr says fighting should stay – another old guard trying to stick to the old way of doing things. [Fox Sports].
Week Three power rankings are out – and the Buffalo Sabres are still sitting tall at the number 30 spot – this time with an interesting stat on Ristolainen. [Bleacher Report].
