The Official Site of the Buffalo Sabres


by Staff Writer / Buffalo Sabres caught up with a few executives from around the hockey world to see what they thought of how Buffalo did as host of the 2016 NHL Scouting Combine. Here's what they had to say:

"Last year it was a successful event. This year with the full complex being available to us, it's a fantastic venue here for us."

- Director of NHL Central Scouting Dan Marr

"I think, obviously, this year is even better than last year from the standpoint of whatever kinks there may or may not have been from moving from Toronto to here they seem to have all been worked out."

-Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff

"Having it in one place, to me, long-term is good. I think there are always benefits of moving it around and different markets and everything like that, but I'd be just as happy to come back and do what we're doing here on a long-term basis. If it does go somewhere and they're changing it, they've got a good model here to follow."

-Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving

"The standard is set here."

-NHL Central Scouting's David Gregory
