The Sabres do have enough players to make up for the loss of campbell, plus if they get rid of Afinogenov at the deadline, they will be in a nice spot to rebound next year. Up front is less of a concern, with Connelly, Roy, Pominville, Hecht. If Vanek returns to form, and younger players such as Clarke McAurthur, Dan Paille and Drew Stafford step in and produce the way the have in the past at junior levels, their offense will be just as good as last years, if not better. Briere and Drury are hard shoes to fill, but once this offence finds its confidence then watch out. Also, with a bit of cap room left, I'm sure the Sabres could find an adequate replacement or 2 for not much money. If the free agent frenzy started today this is who would be available http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=160531&hubname= good defensemen for under 4 million based on play the last 2 seasons include bringing back Jay McKee, Pavel Kubina, Salei, F. Kaberle, Corvo and Kuba, its not too far out to think the Sabres could bring in 2 of these guys for under 6 million, when campbell will command the same…. throw one or two of them in with Lydman, Tillander, Kalinin, Paetsch, Sekera, Pratt and Spacek if they bring either back…. not only would that solidify their top 4, but it would also give their defense some much needed depth. Buffalo will definatly be ok for next year…….. if they arent one of the Leagues top teams.
