Buffalo Sabres Daily: Ville Leino, Buffalo Bisons, Buffalo Bills

Can Ville Leino rebuild bis career after the mutually nightmarish debacle that was his time with the Buffalo Sabres? [Yahoo Sports].

One would think that Ville Leino would have to take a short contract to “reprove” his worth to an NHL team.  One would also think that outside of the Philadelphia Flyers and Buffalo Sabres – that the twenty-eight other teams in the National Hockey League would learn their lesson and shy away from Leino.

But it is the free agent market, and someone is going to pay Ville Leino a boat load of money; either because they think that they have the recipe to return him to the form he had in Philly when he scored 53 points in 81 games, or because they have to spend money to get to the cap floor.

Either way, its the end of an era, and we don’t have to worry about Ville Leino anymore.  I mean, I know scoring was lean, but in the year of the butt goal, you couldn’t get just one?

Steve Delebar welcome to Buffalo – the right handed reliever has been optioned by the Toronto Blue Jays to the Buffalo Bisons.  [Jays Journal].

The Bisons get the added benefit of a right handed reliever because the parent club wanted to make room on their roster for Munenori Kawasaki.  Can the Bisons use the added help to get above .500?

The Buffalo Bills are going to have an intense, aggressive offense?  Sign me up.  [Buffalowdown].

Whether you think the Buffalo Bills are going to be better this year, whether or not you think they will still be a bad football team; we can only hope that the coaching staff and players make it an interesting season to watch football.  With the Buffalo Sabres forecasted as performing poorly as they strive for the highest pick possible in next years draft, it won’t be a good winter for Buffalo sports fans if the Bills are in the gutter as well.
