'The Sabres third-round pick in the 2003 draft, MacArthur is currently leading the American Hockey League with 18 points (eight goals, 10 assists) in 14 games for Rochester. He had seven points in 19 games in his Sabres debut last season.'
‘“Ryan really utilizes video technology, analyzing every shot and his movement in and around the net,” Corsi said. “He does this before and after every game and even during an intermission.”’
'MacArthur, Buffalo’s third round pick in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft (74th overall), leads the American Hockey League with 18 points (8+10) in 15 games this season.'
'“We learned a pretty big lesson against Florida,” Ruff said regarding Buffalo’s 4-2 loss to the Panthers Friday. “You take that lesson and move forward. We went through a lot of that defensive zone stuff that we messed up on and I think you give these guys credit. They listened.”'
'“The message is there,” Ruff said after practice Tuesday. “You watched the playoffs. You saw how tight it got, and the scoring chances got fewer and fewer. Coaches are pretty good at looking at video and wondering what’s going on and [experimenting]. There is a little bit of a trend developing.”'
‘In short, I don’t think this is the end of the world for Buffalo. After last year’s record, the team just isn’t used to losing, and the constant stream of injuries isn’t helping either. Still, if the boys can take the energy they’re using to kick and punch and otherwise penalty the other team and use it against the puck on the ice, I feel confident they can turn this all around.’
'While there's plenty of hockey left to be played, this was the nightmare scenario that many Buffalo fans worried about when they watched two of their top three scorers depart for greener pastures this offseason.'
