Rookie camp gets underway

While all of the Sabres rookies and other prospects all arrived in Buffalo last Friday they are only really getting practices underway this week. This will only give them a single week of practice before all of the veterans report for physicals this Friday. The main players to watch will be Nathan Gerbe and Mike Weber. Currently both of these players are not expected to be in Buffalo's starting lineup, but have the potental to get a shot at it. Gerbe is an outstanding talent, but will have to convince Ruff to give up Peter's and MacArthur's spots to have a shot at making the team. Weber has some NHL experience but will be battleing Patesch for the number seven role, and also Sekera who he played very well with last season. Still in the event of injuries we are likely to see both of these players at some point in the year.
