There is no denying that this upcoming season will be critical for Buffalo Sabres general manager Kevyn Adams. In what could be his final offseason being in charge, Adams needs to make sure he gets it right this summer. It started when he brought back Lindy Ruff to be the next head coach. Now it's time to improve the roster.

NHL free agency is still two months away, but it's never too early to talk about the offseason. When it comes to improving the roster, it sounds like Adams has a plan in place.

In the tweet from The Sabre Report, David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period reports that the Sabres general manager is looking to improve in a couple of areas. As it says above and in the article, Adams is looking to add a top six forward and a third line center. While I'm sure there are more improvements, I expect Buffalo to make a good move or two this summer.

Top six scorer

The top six need is an interesting one. Buffalo has a very good top six offensive unit, so I'm intrigued with who they bring in and who will be moved around. Looking at the free agent market, there are some good options for the Sabres IF these players are available.

Some of the names who are unrestricted free agents include Steven Stamkos, Sam Reinhart, Jake Guentzel, Tyler Bertuzzi, Jonathan Marchessault and Vladimir Tarasenko. I don't expect all of these names to be available, but even if they are not up for taking, there are still other options on the table for Buffalo.

Third line center

The Sabres have multiple areas where they need to improve. One of those areas is face offs. Buffalo lacked winning draws this year, and it seems like Adams plans to address that in free agency. Some UFA centers that could make sense for Buffalo are Max Domi, Alexander Wennberg, Sean Monahan and Teddy Blueger.

As far as we know, these are two areas where Adams wants to improve. We will see if anymore reports fall out and how the offseason goes in terms of available talent for Buffalo.
