Just because there's some movement in CBA talks, players are apparently not going to sit around and wait and see if a deal is struck. Sabres defenseman Alexander Sulzer is the latest player to head for Europe, as he signed today with ERC Ingolstadt of the German league. The team's release says he will attend his first practice session tomorrow.
Sulzer came to the Sabres last year in the deadline day trade with Vancouver and immediately became much more than a throw-in. He's expected to be in the hunt for the No. 5-6 role on the Sabres' blueline. That's, of course, if the season starts.
