Buffalo Sabres Daily: Buffalo Bills, Elmira Jackals, Sam Reinhart

Buffalo Bills lack of quarterback will offer fans no relief.  [Rochester D&C].

The Buffalo Sabres are only going to be slightly better than they were last season, posting the worst season in franchise history – and the worst season in the NHL in the modern era.

With that, coupled with the fact that the Buffalo Bills seem to be on the rise for the first time in a decade, it only stands to reason that the Buffalo Bills will provide Buffalo area fans with the respite they need, if only momentarily, during the regular season.

The only problem is, the Buffalo Bills have put all their eggs in one basket with EJ Manuel, and if he can’t make it the full season – then the Buffalo Bills are in serious trouble.

Even having EJ Manuel, the Bills will not be winning many games.

The good thing for Buffalo Sabres fans – is that they have three teams to follow when it comes to hockey, and the Buffalo Sabres want the fan experience to be all inclusive for fans in Buffalo, Rochester, and Elmira.

Local fans of the Elmira Jackals are getting ready for the hockey season as they took part in the first ever Elmira Jackals street hockey fest, similar to the one the Buffalo Sabres host.

The Elmira Jackals are really pushing their affiliation with the Buffalo Sabres – and are looking to return to the ECHL post season, something they missed last season, for the first time as part of the ECHL.

Family ties and deep bloodlines important for prospects making it in the NHL.  [NHL].

The Buffalo Sabres very own Sam Reinhart can attest to that statement.  His father played in the NHL.  Both of his brothers have been drafted by NHL Organizations.

He knows what it takes to get to the NHL – and knows there is a process if you can’t, or the organization can’t find room for you on the NHL roster.

That is going to be the difference in the development of Sam Reinhart as opposed to Mikhail Grigorenko.  Of course, there are exemptions with every rule.
