• Tom Gulitti discusses the disappointing finish last season from Jamie Langenbrunner. Said Langenbrunner on the media’s theories for his late-season struggles:
“I usually don’t read what goes on, but after the season I read a lot of what was said and I’m not going to comment on what’s the truth and what’s not,” Langenbrunner told me. “It’s probably somewhere in the middle of what’s said. I’m not going to drag that out there. That’s the past. I’m happy about the direction the team is going and looking forward to that.”

BUFFALO, NY (September 1, 2009) – Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier announced today that forward Adam Mair underwent successful arthroscopic hip surgery. He is expected to be out a minimum of 6 weeks.
Sources say Adam Mair of the Buffalo Sabres has been fined $2,500 by the NHL for venturing down a hallway and trying to get at Ottawa Senators players during Monday’s NHL game in Buffalo.
The fine is the maximum amount that is allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Expect to see Adam Mair get the book thrown at him by the NHL.
A league official confirmed to Sun Media today that the league is reviewing the incident of Mair marching down the hallway late in the Senators’ 5-2 victory at the HSBC Arena to try to get Ottawa winger Chris Neil. Senators coach Craig Hartsburg told reporters this morning that the league has to deal with Mair.
All that stopped Mair was Senators winger Jarkko Ruutu, defenceman Luke Richardson (who was in his street clothes) and director of communications Phil Legault, who stepped in the middle.

from WGR 550,
Plenty of veterans missed practice this morning at HSBC Arena. Adam Mair has an ankle injury that Lindy Ruff said would keep him out weeks. Tim Connolly has a strained oblique will be out for an undetermined amount of time. Ruff insisted that his injury has nothing to do with his head.
