Sabres Training Camp: Some Training Camp Tidbits

It was a busy weekend for us away from the blog and therefore we have some catching up to do.  We have plenty of planned for this week with some training camp player profiles throughout the week and our season preview will be posted on Thursday.  Oh yeah and there is a game on Thursday.  We will probably be covering the game in the same matter we would a regular season game but there will be no TV coverage.  The game will be broadcast on radio and will have the game center going.

I mentioned we were behind and while we were away the Sabres announced their training camp schedule and training camp roster.  Follow the jump to see both...

The roster is in no specific order.  I will update the chart with every cut that is made along the way.  We can predict most of the cuts but every year there is a surprise or two.

The Sabres have also released their training camp schedule.  The hockey pre-season is very short and therefore it is mostly taken up by playing pre-season games.  The Sabres will play six pre-season games this season.  Here is the schedule via
