'"It's a tough decision," said Sabres co-captain Daniel Briere. "We have two guys battling really, really hard. They both deserve to play every single night, but you can only play one."'

'"Obviously, I expected a little bit more out of myself," Vanek said. "It's a big transition from the AHL to the NHL, and I think I'm still getting used to it."'
‘The Sabres are finally giving fans a team worth supporting, one that plays with determination and accountability. You get the sense that management had a clear vision for the product it wanted to put on the ice when the NHL began anew. Regier deserves credit for that. He used to whine all the time about the league’s economics. It came off as an excuse for his own lack of initiative. But he promised the Sabres would thrive in the new NHL, if the league enforced the rules, and it looks like he was right.’
'Buffalo's chemistry and work ethic hasn't been this strong since the 1999 Stanley Cup finals. Chemistry is not something easily defined, but you know it's right if you understand what Paul Gaustad and Adam Mair bring over Miroslav Satan. The Sabres have been dancing to the same tune since Satan walked out the door.'
'RW Jason Pominville has two goals and five assists in his last six games.'
