Buck Gleason of the Buffalo News writes this about the Sabres...
It won't be long before teams examine the Sabres' roster and realize how few players should be feared. Really, name a defenseman who's going to keep opposing forwards awake at night. Or name three bruising forwards who would make opposing defensemen look over their shoulders.

A well-timed fight can fire up listless teammates and precipitate momentum swings. As Ottawa Senators tough guy Brian McGrattan divulges, there is a method to the madness. “I fight for my team, not for myself,” said this season’s NHL leader in fighting majors with 19. “I do it to spark emotion, to get the team going if we come out flat or get down a couple of goals.”
