Predicting each member of the Buffalo Sabres 2023-24 season in one sentence
Devon Levi: Will open the season as a 1A barring an unforeseen trade for a veteran and the potential Calder finalist will put up solid numbers playing behind an improved defensive unit.
Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen: Unless he’s traded, Luukkonen will show everyone why the Sabres kept their faith in him as a 1B.
Eric Comrie: Will be the odd man out in camp and the Sabres will put him on waivers, where another team will claim him.
Dustin Tokarski: Will end up as the starting goaltender with the Rochester Americans and will try to recreate the success Malcolm Subban enjoyed last season.
Devin Cooley: Another goaltender heading for Rochester will serve as Tokarski’s backup and perhaps work his way into a 1B role.
