As always, there are plenty of questions going into camp regarding the Sabres. The entire left side is a question mark, with Evander Kane the only established player penciled in for the top six. Is coach Phil Housley going to convert Reinhart into a second or third line center? Speaking of Housley, how much of an impact will he make on the Sabres poor defensive play from last season? And is Guhle going to make the starting squad?

Stay tuned, and Go Sabres!
