‘Buffalo’s incredible run to the top of the Eastern Conference has been keyed by big names — Drury, Daniel Briere, and Jochen Hecht to name a few — but the organization’s ability to withstand defection and injury through the last two seasons is testament to the team’s AHL affiliate. And a most recent wave of stars who spent time in Rochester like Vanek, Pominville, Roy, Ryan Miller and now Drew Stafford appear poised to keep the Sabres among the league’s elite, even if Drury, Briere or both are lost to free agency.’
