Phil Housley is aware his players might be experiencing a bit of information overload. We're only four days into training camp, so it's understandable if the Sabres are still grasping the complexities of a new system.
With that in mind, Housley had a simple message for his players as they approach their preseason opener against Carolina on Monday night. Play fast, and play confident.
"I know there's a lot of things coming at these guys, a lot of information, so my message is just go out and work hard," Housley said. "Don't' hesitate in anything you do. If you make a decision to go, go. We'll deal with mistakes as they come, but I want us to play with speed and attitude tonight."
