Sabres alumni report: Lydman sidelined, Mair gets tryout with Devils

The veterans are at HSBC Arena today for their physicals and testing but two longtime faces who are not are still in the news.

Toni Lydman won't be starting Ducks camp because of the news in this alarming story: He has been having headaches and double vision and team doctors are trying to find the source of the problem. Not the way for him to start his three-year, $9-million deal.

Tucked into this Newark Star-Ledger story about the news that Devils defenseman Anssi Salmela is behind on the road back from knee surgery is the fact that New Jersey has invited Adam Mair to camp on a training camp tryout. The betting is that he's going to be targeted for their new AHL affiliate in Albany.

Stay tuned for more from the arena as the veterans begin to come in and meet the media.
