Armeia out with broken hand so three spots up for grabs

Will be interesting to see who gets the nod as the Sabres have 17 locked in for sure.   The injury to the kid sucks.  He may have helped?  The Finnish kid may get his shot in the first game.  Rasmus RistolanIN, would be on most likely the third pairing.  Myers and Erhoff no doubt will be the first unit.  I believe Ott will be huge on killing penalties.  Pommenville was probably our best killer for years.

From what I have read he is only listed as out "indefinitely", but this kind of injury tends to sap your season, as you do not have power on your shot or the ability to fire crisp first passes. Ask Jason Spezza who had a similar injury a few years ago and who came back to play and his shot for the rest of the season could not break a pane of glass.

Armia is a good looking prospect and will get his due though. Don't give up on him. Plenty of hockey in this kid and the good thing is it happened in the preseason and he has all year to recover.
