Proposal for Lindy Ruff: Buffalo Sabres Opening Day Lineup

Line Up Over There!

The Sabres have had a busy offseason with some impressive moves.

The additions of Ehrhoff and Ville Leino should add some firepower on the power play and create better team chemistry respectively. I believe Leino has the playoff experience and the fiery play that denotes leadership and wouldn't be surprised if he adorns the "C" this season.

The following proposed lineup will likely not be well received, however, I believe I can make an interesting case for some intriguing line combinations.

Looking to the Sabres' previous years under Lindy Ruff, I hope he continues to divide his talent over four lines. We have seen Roy Vanek Stafford for years, and there's just not chemistry.

I think the tail end of last year should prove that to anyone. Without further ado, I give to you four forward lines, three defensive pairings and two strong in goal.
