Kassian, Adam give their thoughts on Rochester

LEWISTON -- Nearly all of the players at the Sabres' development camp this week will play in the AHL. Buffalo has moved its affiliate from Portland to Rochester, and Zack Kassian and Luke Adam weighed in.

Kassian: "Everyone's really happy about that. It's a good place. Before when they were there, the fan base was great because they're all Buffalo fans. That's a good thing. It's close. If you get a call-up, you don't have to fly and the drive is only an hour away. It makes it a lot easier on the prospects and a lot easier on the scouting staff and coaches to watch you play."

Adam: "It's nice for travel for call-ups up and down. At the same time, I don't know much about Rochester the city. Portland was beautiful. It was a great organization there, and you can't say enough great things about Portland. But I've heard a lot of good things about Rochester, so there's definitely excitement to make the move."

The Sabres' campers will scrimmage from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. today and Sunday in Niagara University's Dwyer Arena.
