Sabres winger Tyler Ennis scored Buffalo's lone goal on Monday.

Impact
It was his second goal of the season, and he was one of the only players to play well for Buffalo on Monday afternoon. Ennis should have no problem reaching the 20-goal mark again in 2014-15.

It is not out of the question for Tyler Myers to return to the 40-point level for the 2014-2015 season. | 09/22/2014 6:26 PM
News
It is not out of the question for Tyler Myers to return to the 40-point level for the 2014-2015 season.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Myers has not reached the 40-point mark again since his rookie season in 2008-2009, the year he won the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie. Myers, however, played much better under coach Ted Nolan, who took over mid-way through last year. He will also be paired with his good friend, Josh Gorges, on the blue line.
Sabres right wing Drew Stafford is trying to repeat his 30-goal season from the 2009-2010 season. | 09/22/2014 6:21 PM
News
Sabres right wing Drew Stafford is trying to repeat his 30-goal season from the 2009-2010 season.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Stafford told the Buffalo News that the Sabres enter this season with higher expectations despite finishing last year with the fewest points in the NHL. With the right linemates, Stafford could threaten the 30-goal mark again, but with his situation in flex, he is not a player worth spending a high pick on in the draft. We see Stafford in the 15-20 goal range this year.
Sabres winger Chris Stewart is one of the biggest boom-or-bust fantasy hockey players for the 2014-2015 season. | 09/22/2014 6:17 PM
News
Sabres winger Chris Stewart is one of the biggest boom-or-bust fantasy hockey players for the 2014-2015 season.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Stewart told Buffalo News that he has high expectations for himself this season, and he has the motivation to succeed being in a contract year. Still, Stewart sometimes goes long stretches without a point. It will depend greatly on his situation this year, but he should be one of Buffalo's top six forwards with around 17 goals and 30-35 points.

Sabres center Cody Hodgson looks like he will have a lot of upside playing on Buffalo's top line this season.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
The Sabres have a lot of young, and they, hope up-and-coming players, and it is unclear how they will use them all. Hodgson should benefit from Matt Moulson's presence on the power play, but he needs to show more two-way ability to see more playing time overall.

Tyler Ennis' agent, Eustace King, predicted this past summer that Ennis will peak around 30 goals and 70 points.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
King is not going to come forward and say his client is going to perform badly, so on some level, this doesn't really mean much. We see Ennis more around the 50-55 point range with 20-25 goals. He will play alongside Matt Moulson for an entire season this year, which will help, but we don't see a 10 goal increase from 21 scores a year ago.

News
In his return to Buffalo, Matt Moulson has a chance to lead the Sabres in scoring this season.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Moulson played for three different teams last year, so he was likely never comfortable enough with his linemates or locker room situation to return to his 30-goal form. Buffalo hopes he can reach the 30-goal mark this season for the first time since 2010-2011. Our projections have him getting close, leading Buffalo with 27 goals and 55 points.

Tyler Ennis' agent, Eustace King, is predicting that his client will peak at around 30 goals and 70 points.
Buffalo News

Impact
"I believe that Tyler's challenge has been that he's an undersized guy his whole career but he's overcome that obstacle," King said of Ennis. "I think Tyler is going to be like some of the smaller guys that have gone through the Buffalo Sabres over the years and gone on to great careers in the NHL. I clearly believe we haven't scratched the surface yet to what Tyler can be." Obviously Ennis' agent is going to be biased and the numbers he's putting forward would be a big leap from his current career-high of 49 points. That being said, Ennis is still just 24 years old (25 on Oct. 6) and he definitely still has some room to grow. He should establish himself as a solid top-six forward after inking a five-year, $23 million deal with Buffalo.

Impact
The 24-year-old had a career-high 21 goals and added 22 assists and 210 SOG over 80 games in 2013-14. The talent is lacking in Buffalo so he likely won't be much better than that in 2014-15.

Mike Harrington on Twitter

Impact
Buffalo didn't disclose the term or cap hit, but it's reportedly a five-year, $23 million contract. The Sabres are betting on Ennis bouncing back after recording just 43 points in 80 games last season. He certainly has the capacity to firmly establish himself as a solid top-six forward and could end up with 50-60 points in 2014-15.

Impact
It's believed that Ennis' deal will be in the ballpark of $4.6 million annually for five years. He had 43 points and 42 penalty minutes in 80 games in 2013-14. At the age of 24, he still has some untapped offensive upside.
Sam Reinhart kicks off time with Sabres | 07/15/2014 9:26 AM

Sam Reinhart began his career with the Buffalo Sabres by participating in development camp drills.
Buffalo News

Impact
"It was great," Reinhart said. "It was a thrill to have that all over with and finally come here. It's a lot more comforting knowing all that's over and you can really get down to business, enjoy the week and the first experience at an NHL level. I'm just kind of taking it in stride and enjoying the process." The Sabres took him with the second pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Buffalo has already signed him to an entry-level contract and he's expected to make the team's opening game roster.

The Buffalo Sabres have signed forward Zac Dalpe to a one-year contract.
prohockeytalk.com

Impact
The Sabres have not yet disclosed whether it's a one-year or two-year deal. As James O'Brien points out at prohockeytalk.com, it makes a difference, the one- or two-way detail could be important because the general feeling is that Dalpe isn't exactly a shoo-in for a roster spot. The Olean Times Herald's Bill Hoppe believes that the 24-year-old will fight for a fourth-line forward spot.

The Buffalo Sabres have signed forward Jordan Samuels-Thomas to a one-year entry-level contract.

Impact
Samuels-Thomas was selected by the Atlanta Thrashers in the seventh round (No. 203) of the 2009 NHL Draft. The Sabres acquired his rights July 9 from the Winnipeg Jets in a trade for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2015 draft. The 24-year-old Connecticut native began his college career with Bowling Green State University before transferring to Quinnipiac University, where he played the past two seasons. In his first season with the Bobcats, Samuels-Thomas led the team with 17 goals and helped Quinnipiac to the NCAA championship game, where they lost to Yale University.

Forward Sam Reinhart, the second selection in the 2014 NHL Draft, has signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Buffalo Sabres.
nhl.com

Impact
Details of the deal have yet to be divulged publicly. "We are very excited to have Sam under contract," Sabres general manager Tim Murray said. "We look forward to watching him develop and become an important part of our organization in the future." Reinhart, 18, spent the past four seasons with the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League. In 203 WHL games, he scored 101 goals and 254 points. He served as captain in 2013-14 and was named WHL Player of the Year and Most Sportsmanlike Player of the Year after tying Edmonton Oilers prospect Leon Draisaitl, the No. 3 pick, for fourth in league scoring with 105 points. Reinhart, the son of former NHL player Paul Reinhart, was captain for Canada when it won the gold medal at the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament and at the 2013 IIHF Under-18 World Championship.

Red Wings might pursue Tyler Myers | 07/06/2014 9:27 AM
News
There's been speculation as to whether or not the Red Wings will attempt to acquire Tyler Myers.
Detroit Free Press

Impact
Detroit wasn't able to upgrade its defense on the free agent market and although Myers hasn't lived up to expectations since winning the Calder Trophy, he's still a solid defenseman with plenty of upside. Buffalo might not be inclined to trade Myers though, especially seeing as freeing up cap space is a non-factor for them at this time.

Renaud Lavoie on Twitter

Impact
His contract in 2014-15 will pay him $750,750 at the NHL level on a one-year, two-way deal, according to Capgeek.com. Hackett's season ended in April when he suffered a knee injury, which required surgery to repair. He'll play in the AHL next year.

Impact
He will earn an NHL salary of $650,000 and will get $275,000 in the AHL. Stratchan played in 18 games with Washington last year. He'll probably spend the majority of the 2014-15 season in the minors.

Matt Moulson signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the Sabres Tuesday.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
The Islanders trade of Moulson to the Sabres for Thomas Vanek last season promptly sunk his fantasy value. He had 11 goals and 18 assists in 44 games with Buffalo before being dealt to Minnesota, where he had six goals and seven assists in 20 games. He'll be a 50-point player at best in 2014-15 given the talent level on the Sabres.

"It's not an easy thing to come to terms with, but we had to look to the future and we're excited about that," Gionta said. "But the last five years have been a huge part of our life and we're very lucky to have experienced it and very grateful for it." He had 18 goals and 40 points in 81 games in 2013-14.

Buffalo News

Impact
Foligno had 19 points and 82 penalty minutes in 74 games with the Sabres in 2013-14. It's not surprising that he ended up getting a bridge deal after his entry-level contract expired. He's got some offensive upside and he'll get a far more lucrative contract next time if he can live up to his potential.

Impact
He appeared in 38 games (five goals, 12 assists) for the Philadelphia Flyers last season before being dealt to the Boston Bruins. Meszaros posted five points in 14 contests with the Bruins. He should get a larger role with the Sabres than he had during the 2013-14 campaign.

Impact
Moulson played on three teams last season and had some success in Buffalo even though he finished the season playing poorly for Minnesota. Moulson is a sharp shooter and will certainly play on the Sabres' top line and first power-play unit. We see him returning to a 30-35 goal level of production.

News
The Buffalo Sabres have signed fomer Montreal captain Brian Gionta to a three-year $12.75 million contract.
Rotoworld.com

Impact
The deal comes with a no-movement clause for the firs two seasons and a limited no-trade clause for the third campaign. Gionta will bring leadership to a young Sabres' squad and will join Josh Gorges in Buffalo. Look for Gionta to play a second or third-line role which will limit his fantasy value and will make him marginal hockey pool pick.
