Buffalo Sabres Roster Updated : July 21

With the signing of Clarke MacArthur and Andrej Sekera the Sabres now have 21 players under contract.  That number includes Joe Dipenta who is likely headed to Portland and doesn't include Nathan Gerbe, Tim Kennedy, Mike Weber and Tyler Myers that all have an opportunity to make the team this year.

I have positioned the players in the chart based on the my projected line combination's as well.  One of the most fun things in sports is trying to predict the future.  I think the Sabres have a solid top six as written in the chart.
