The eternally mismanaged Sabre will be heading back to juniors very soon, according to a report from Stephane Leroux of RDS.

The question we asked yesterday about which Buffalo Sabre should be sent down to make room for Mike Weber's return seems to have been answered - Mikhail Grigorenko will be sent back to the Quebec Remparts some time soon, according to RDS reporter Stephane Leroux.

For those of you who don't speak French, I'll save you the trouble of going to Google Translate - here's Leroux's report in English:

Just passed a good source that confirms Mikhail Grigorenko is expected to return in the # QMJHL in the coming days! #Remparts

The handling of Grigorenko has been a hot topic among Sabres fans since Lindy Ruff and Darcy Regier decided to keep him in Buffalo last season, then see him riding the pine once the first year of his ELC was burned up.

Grigorenko isn't the only player who could be sent down, as we're still keeping a very close eye on Nikita Zadorov, still a top candidate to head back to juniors along with Grigo.

What do you think, Sabres fans?
