Season Preview: Sabres

‘Depth is good, but the Sabres need stability at this position. Biron has to prove his capacity to carry the load. However, he won’t get the benefit of the doubt as he largely has in the past.

'"Our goaltenders have been strong," Ruff said. "The Minnesota game got away a little bit on Mika, but overall Marty's been strong. I don't want to read a lot into some of the games because I didn't think we faced the strongest lineups. But the point is… our goaltenders played good in them."'
