Ruff Talks Boyes, Connolly, Goaltending

From WGR-550,

“I think we’re getting a creative offensive player that a couple years ago scored 30 and 40 goals. He can complement our offense and play 17, 18 minutes a game.”  Ruff named Boyes one of his top six forwards and he will play a big role on the power play as well.  “We’d like to use him in the slot area. We can use him on the unit with two lefties and use him on the slot or in front of the net like Vanek.”

Lindy Ruff also touched on the Sabres’ strategy before the NHL Trading Deadline and the decision to keep Tim Connolly.  “With the situation with Derek Roy not having our #1 center, without filling that hole with another player, we feel with Tim we can maintain the pace we are going at.”

more, including why Ruff thinks the Sabres have been better on the road than at home, when Ryan Miller will get his next game off, and an injury update on Derek Roy.
