Sabres Roster Set For Sunday

After placing Adam Pardy on waivers, and barring any moves before today's 5:00 p.m. deadline, the Sabres have their roster set at 23 for the season opener Sunday afternoon against the Flyers.

Assuming that neither Nathan Gerbe nor Cody McCormick will be ready to play due to injuries, the forward lines will likely look like this:

Vanek - Hodgson - Pominville

Foligno - Ennis - Stafford

Leino - Grigorenko - Ott

Scott - Hecht - Kaleta  extra: Ellis

The Sabres will carry 8 defensemen on the roster: Myers, Regehr, Ehrhoff, Leopold, Sekera, Sulzer, Weber, Brennan.

Jhonas Enroth will back up Ryan Miller in net.

The big storyline in Buffalo is that all eyes will be on 2012 first-round draft pick Mikhail Grigorenko, who was arguably Russia's best player in the World Juniors.  Players, coaches, media and fans have been raving about what they've seen from him in training camp.
