Should Sabres pin a letter on Myers?

The Sabres rely on Tyler Myers more than any other skater. He's their prime young player, the kind of guy a team can build around during long-term planning.

Myers is aware of his role. The 21-year-old defenseman embraces it. Now that he has two full seasons in the NHL, folks in Sabreland can expect him to accept more leadership roles.

"As time goes on, I'd like to take a leadership role," Myers said last week after cleaning out his locker. "As a young guy, you want to let the more experienced guys and the guys who have been here longer take control if they want to. But, definitely, if I can give myself more of a leadership role coming into next year, I want to do that."
