‘”It would be great if he was, but we realize it’s a possibility he may not be ready for camp,” Regier told the paper. “It’s possible. We’re not ruling it out, but it really is one of those things that we’ll monitor, and we’ll just move along as time moves along.”‘

'The Sabres have already been thinned out up front this summer, with Mike Grier leaving as a free agent, Taylor Pyatt getting traded to Vancouver and J.P. Dumont on the open market after the Sabres walked away from his arbitration award. With so many departures, it will leave spots open for young players like Derek Roy and Jason Pominville to take on greater roles, while Drew Stafford and Jiri Novotny could be among the newcomers to crack the Sabres forward ranks.'
(In French): The Newspaper Le Journal de Montreal is reporting that J.P. Dumont will sign with the Nashville Predators.
'The playmaker is still suffering symptoms from his May 8 concussion, and General Manager Darcy Regier says Connolly may not be cleared to participate when camp opens.'
'Let's face it, teams aren't exactly beating down his door, and there aren't many that would throw him on their top scoring line. He would get that opportunity in Buffalo, where he would flank a terrific player in Daniel Briere and become a leader on a Sabres roster dotted with youth. His value should increase.'
