I heard on XM Home Ice today that the Sabres had Nolan Pratt in for tryout. This is probably a move for some depth in the absence of Dmitri Kalinin who will miss a month with a knee injury suffered in a knee-on-knee collision with Rod Brind'Amour on Wednesday night. The Sabres called up defenseman Mike Weber from Rochester but I would be surprised if he is the long term answer to the Sabres needs. I think Weber has a real future in the NHL but he will need a lot more seasoning in the AHL before making an impact in the NHL.
A tryout for Pratt
