Sabres Camp: Leino centering Ennis, Stafford
BUFFALO -- Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff didn't waste any time getting a look at what he said was one of his main objectives in camp. In the first of three sessions early Saturday morning, he tossed new forward Ville Leino into the middle of a line between Tyler Ennis and Drew Stafford.

Leino played center earlier in his career, but was on the wing in Philadelphia. Buffalo, which signed him as a free agent, has for now moved Leino into the spot that was at times filled by departed pivot Tim Connolly last year.

"I think they are all good players. Both can score and make plays," Leino said after skating with his new partners. "Once we get clicking, we'll have a lot of fun. I felt good skating in the middle. For me, it's easier. It comes more natural."
Quote of the Day

When things aren't going well for us in this city [Toronto], I think there is a lot of overanalyzing going on. You've got the most passionate fans in the world here and a lot of (media) coverage, so you know there's going to be a lot of people giving their two cents worth on us.
