The Sabres are on the ice at First Niagara Center and it's business as usual: The only player missing is the concussed Jochen Hecht and Lindy Ruff is standing on the bench watching with James Patrick running things.
That means everyone who might be the subject of trade rumors -- think Paul Gaustad, Derek Roy, Brad Boyes, Jordan Leopold -- is on the ice practicing with the team. No trades yet. Boyes is back on his line, meaning he would be good to go Wednesday in Anaheim if he stays.
The lines are the same as well:
Cody McCormick is in a red non-contact jersey. All seven defensemen and both goalies are present. Corey Tropp is not here, meaning he's back in Rochester.
