'As for the loss of Satan and Zhitnik, both were on the rosters of Sabres teams that failed to make the playoffs for the last several seasons. If the team can miss the playoffs with them, it can surely do it without them. Besides, Satan is a streak scorer who is familiar with the negative side of the plus-minus ratings. Besides, his nose got out of joint if coach Lindy Ruff didn't give him a hug every day. Zhitnik is a good, durable player who could be depended on for a huge amount of ice time, but he's hardly indispensable.'
