Last week we took a look at the Buffalo Sabres depth chart as far as goaltending is concerned, outlining who will be playing where and in what order. This week I take a look at the depth chart of centers, from 1-5 and then what the prospect pool gives us as well.
The Buffalo Sabres are definitely lacking in the center position – relying on converted left winger Tyler Ennis to play the middle man on the top line – with less than average results.
With a roster rebuild in full order for the Buffalo Sabres – it is time to put Tyler Ennis back where he is comfortable and let him play the wing, letting the youth of the Buffalo Sabres to earn their keep in the face off circle, learning the tricks of the trade against some of the better faceoff men in the league.
You can’t just give these guys the spots, they will be earned in training camp, but to really truly rebuild this team, you have to empower the youth at some point, and that point is now.
