The Next Wave NHL
BUFFALO SABRES
SUMMARY
The Sabres have some high skilled, but high risk forwards and defensemen. The organization is deep with depth players, and plenty who should have NHl careers, but the high end talent is all of the high risk variety. A few hits and the Sabres are set for the future, a few misses could be tough though.

UP
A new name highlights this section. As the team signed Russian free agent Viktor Antipin. He falls in line with the risk/reward nature of the Sabres specs, but he's very skilled offensively, can run a PP and skates well. No doubt there will be an adjustment period, but Antipin has shown he can play against some of the best in the world.

DOWN
No Sabres prospect really dropped on the rankings. Though a few are coming close to make or break years

WHO TO WATCH
Justin Bailey is one who needs to start showing something at the NHL level. He has talent, and could take advantage of the potential opportunity this year. One way or the other, he strikes us as someone who could jump, or drop depending on development this year.

TEAM RANK - 19th
