Buffalo Sabres Daily: NBC, Luke Adam, Fantasy Sports

The Buffalo Sabres still have national television drawing power.  [Sports Media 101].

The Buffalo Sabres were dead last in the league last year, Buffalo’s rebuilding process will play out on the national stage eleven times next year.

The NBC group will air 103 National Hockey League games this year, to include the Los Angeles Kings banner raising ceremony.  82 teams for 30 teams, 103 games doesn’t seem like a lot given the 2,460 that will be played as part of the 2014-2015 season.

The fact that the league leaders in nationally televised games are the Boston Bruins, Philadelphia Flyers, Washington Capitals, Los Angeles Kings, and San Jose Sharks.  The league leaders have twelve and the Buffalo Sabres have eleven?  Sounds like NBC sees the promise in the rebuilding Buffalo Sabres.

The Buffalo Sabres are loaded with top prospects.  How many will pan out for the NHL franchise? [Bleacher Report].

After the trade deadline – the Buffalo Sabres were ranked as having the best prospect pool in the NHL.  Good news for fans of the team who are forced to relive last season as the team chases another high draft pick in the 2015 draft.

Now the Buffalo Sabres draft prospects themselves go under the microscope, and some very good players were left off the list.

I got an email yesterday about the last several drafts that Darcy Regier was part of – and the number of NHL stars that were drafted after the duds that ended up the Buffalo Sabres.  Several good players were left off the list – but the ones on the list need to make an impact on the Buffalo Sabres roster, or all will be for naught.

Luke Adam signs a one year deal with the Buffalo Sabres. [Frozen Futures].

It is a bridge contract.  Does Luke Adam have what it takes to finally show the Buffalo Sabres he is ready for the NHL?

I don’t think it is about convincing the Buffalo Sabres at this point, but showcasing his talents for the other 29 teams that can bid on his services in free agency, or to possibly add value to a Luke Adam trade.

Don’t expect many Buffalo Sabres to be drafted in your fantasy league. [Sports Media 101].

The Buffalo Sabres didn’t have many scoring forwards last season, with only one getting to the 20 goal mark.

I don’t think its quite a fair assessment to say that the Buffalo Sabres won’t have a solid showing in any fantasy league, because, well depending on the seriousness of the league, there is always that homer that has to have a fantasy lineup that mirrors his favorite.  I don’t think that fantasy leagues will be void of the Buffalo Sabres – you might see Tyler Myers drafted, you might see a goaltender go late (maybe – that’s a long shot), and you might see Cody Hodgson, Tyler Ennis, and Matt Moulson get drafted as well.
