The NHL free agency period is underway and the Sabres wasted no time dropping and acquiring players.  Early Sunday, Brad Boyes was signed by the New York Islanders.  His contract is for 1 year and it's reportedly worth 1 million dollars.  Personally, I don't thing Buffalo will miss Boyes.  Later in the day, Buffalo added a mountain of a man who can play both offense and defense.  The team acquired John Scott, who's 6 foot 8 and weighs.... 270 pounds.  The Sabres also reportedly reached out to forward Bobby Ryan of the Anaheim Ducks, as did many teams who desire his services.

Getting back to John Scott.....he likes to fight.  He's a bruiser.  You have to be if you are 6'8" and weigh freakin' 270 lbs.
