The Buffalo Sabres will undoubtedly have some growing pains this season with all the youth they are expected to put onto the ice.
Matt Moulson, fresh off of a five-year contract, will likely take on the pressure of providing consistent offense for the team.
Last season, Moulson sparked an offense that was dreadful, after being acquired by the team in a trade that sent Thomas Vanek to the New York Islanders. Moulson was Buffalo's most consistent offensive weapon, until he was dealt to the Minnesota Wild at the trade deadline.Moulson was re-signed by Buffalo this offseason, and again, it appears he will need to provide that offensive spark he provided last season.
The Sabres will have plenty of young, developing talent that will compete this season. Marcus Foligno and Zemgus Girgensons will look to build on their respective progress from last season, while Same Reinhart will hope to make the team and prove his worth of a No. 2 overall draft selection. Still, Moulson will need to provide the offense, and his contract suggests that is what he will be getting paid to do.
