The Buffalo Sabres lose out on a lot of things. They lost out on Connor McDavid, they lost out on Mike Babcock, and they've lost pretty much every game they've played in the past several years. Those hoping for the tank to roll steady, though, know that the Sabres have been relatively good at securing rare victories against the Blue and White. Tonight, the two teams square off once again.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have spent the past year and a half getting themselves into a comfortable salary cap situation, and from the looks of it, that may not have been the worst idea. NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly spoke to the media today regarding the league's player payment flexibility moving into next year, and it doesn't seem like there's going to be very much change.
