Sabres forward Adam Mair was hoping to stay in Buffalo, and he got his wish. No teams claimed the 30-year-old off waivers, and coach Lindy Ruff said the Sabres will maintain the status quo with Mair serving as the 13th forward. The Sabres had the option of sending Mair to Portland of the American Hockey League, but they have decided to keep Mair in the NHL for now.
Below are the audio links from today's interviews in Amherst Pepsi Center. Mair said he feels he can still contribute to the team, while Ruff acknowledges the tough situation Mair is in. Ruff also talks about facing the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday in HSBC Arena.
