Evidently playing a handful of games for the Sabres will get you a job in the organization later on. I always irrationally hated Taylor, as they gave him 16 right after Patty was traded.

Still, He knows a thing or two about the AHL.

Seems like a smart, logical move.

Also good that he played in the A a lot, but also had time in the NHL.

4th among Rochester Americans all-time in GP, 5th in points.

 

I remember him being a potential Sabres callup in NHL 2000.

Another WilkesBarre connection.  Knows what Bots wants and how he wants the players to be developed.

 

On paper looks like a good move.  We'll see.

This isn't a Penguins connection, it's a Rochester connection.

I'll bet he insists on homemade beef gravy and the squeakiest of cheese curds.
