Sabres Camp: Depth key for busy preseason schedule
BUFFALO -- The fresh-faced Sabres will need every ounce of their youthful energy in preseason. Starting Monday, Buffalo plays five exhibition games in seven days.

"I'm not sure how that came about," goalie Ryan Miller said after the final skating session of the day. "Five in seven, with this many guys, I'm not sure it's going to be as big of a grind as we think."

Head coach Lindy Ruff said heavy rotation will be the preseason strategy.

"We're going to have to use a lot of personnel," Ruff said. "You don't want to over-use anyone."
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
