Buffalo Sabres training camp opens today

The Sabres will open one of the more wide-open and exciting training camps in recent memory today. Here are some things to ponder as camp gets underway.

After a long summer, the Buffalo Sabres will finally open their training camp for the 2014-15 season today. The players are in, physicals are being awkwardly administered, and practices will open to the public tomorrow morning.

Hockey is back in Buffalo.

With the opening of training camp, however, come the questions surrounding training camp. Much has already been written on that subject, and you can read more about it at the following sites - Sabres.com, NHL.com, The Buffalo News, Buffalo Hockey Beat, and Sabres Prospects, among others. The questions surrounding training camp, however, are the same things we've been talking about all summer, so we're just going to break things down a little bit differently in this post and let you guys go nuts in the comments with your responses.
