‘”I think it’s officially a slump. We haven’t been good enough,” Ruff said. “When you get in this, it’s not easy to get out of.”‘

'Buffalo will recall forward Drew Stafford from Rochester.'
'Hecht wouldn't discuss his injury, but was spotted walking without a limp. He will have additional time to recover during the five-day NHL All-Star break that starts Sunday.'
'“Lindy Ruff, as a player he was a competitive individual that went out and worked hard, committed to his team night in, night out,” Carlyle said. “Obviously in his coaching aspect of it, he's done a tremendous job in Buffalo. Just look forward to at some point talking about it. We've got a mutual friend that has a strong relationship with him in Mike Foligno. I played with Mike in junior and played a little bit with him in summer hockey. There was always that Buffalo mentality. Being with the Pittsburgh Penguins at the time, it was one of those things we were competitive, but there was an understanding we respected one another.”'
‘Co-captain Daniel Briere understands the concern that the skid is bringing. He knows the Sabres’ problems – careless defense, casual passes and lapses in work ethic – are not going to resolve themselves.’
‘The decision of who gets to leave Rochester and join the big club falls almost solely to Randy Cunneyworth. He’s in his seventh season as the Amerks’ head coach, and the Sabres trust him to decide whether it’s Paille, Drew Stafford, Clarke MacArthur or some other hot player who would best help Buffalo.’
