The Buffalo Sabres are coming off a semi-impressive 2010-11 campaign, in which they registered a record of 43-29-10. Led by youngsters Tyler Myers and veterans like Rob Niedermayer, the Sabres earned the No. 7 seed in the NHL East Conference Playoffs, only to be knocked out in the first round by the Philadelphia Flyers.
Heading into the 2011 season, the Sabres seem to be in an even better position to succeed, especially with the new ownership led by Terry Pegula, who has brought a identity and energy to the city of Buffalo.
With several prospects on the rise, there are still some concerns Sabres fans have about the upcoming year.
