NHL training camps opened this week and the Buffalo Sabres and their fans are excited about the upcoming season. The team signed several players this off-season, but there is still a glaring weakness at center for this team and the front office should look to address this need before the season begins.
The latest rumor as reported by Bleacher Report has Buffalo looking at Jason Spezza from the Ottawa Senators. The 28 year-old center has missed some time over the last two years, but his offensive skills are still in top form and his addition would make the Sabres one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. Spezza has totaled 532 points in his NHL career in 526 games and would be a good fit for the team.
Buffalo has a deep farm system and have plenty of good talent to use as trade material. Ottawa needs to start the rebuilding the franchise and picking up two or three talented youngsters is a good start. If Buffalo wants to become a true contender for the Stanley Cup, a veteran center with offensive skills is a must.
