Open Auditions

When this season started I was hoping that the Sabres would use it to audition the various prospects they had in their system. Bring them up for a few games, give them a taste of the bigs. I thought this might be part of the 'development' that ron Rolston would be doing. With the changes at coach and GM and with most of the rookies sent back to Rochester or junior, I am wondering which direction the Sabres will go. I am hoping they opt for further auditions, both for the veterans and the prospects. Darcy selected all of these players, either through the draft or trades. Darcy is gone, so there is no sentimental attachment to anyone on the team. Everyone on this team should be being evaluated; everyone is playing for their job. Prospects should not be sitting on the press box. The first time Ted Nolan was here the Sabres were known as "the hardest working team in the league". I suspect that is because the Knox's were losing money on the team and could not afford to sign better players. To succeed the Sabres had to outwork the opponent. Hopefully Terry Pegula is not in the same boat as Seymour. Take the time now to determine who is worth keeping and developing and who should be cut. If they are bad enough (and I think they are) they should get a top pick in next year's draft. Hopefully the short temr pain of losing, and auditioning, will lead to long term success.
