The purpose of the Development Camp for the Buffalo Sabres is to help groom the young talent they have and mold it into a cohesive unit.
After the camp has ended, it's clear that the prospect pool has plenty of attitude.
After last season's debacle, the Sabres locker room had a dark, losing vibe to it, and apparently the young prospects didn't care for that atmosphere. There have been reports of physical play and tough competitions throughout the camp, whether it was Rasmus Ristolainen or Brendan Lemieux throwing the body around or Mikhail Grigorenko showing extreme progression. The young Sabres and Sabres-to-be are already tired of losing, and the future appears to be bright with the young core they are molding. Even Hudson Fasching, who just finished his freshman year at the University of Minnesota, said that he could appreciate the competitive nature of the camp and the talent he was up against.
The Sabres may have a season or two left of suffering through growing pains, but once the younger players gain the experience they need, the Sabres will be a force in the NHL for a long time.
