Take your pick: Who should survive Sabres' final cuts and avoid demotion to Amerks?

By John Vogl

The Sabres enter their final preseason game in Carolina tonight with several roster spots open. There could be one starting job on defense, two or more up front and several depth spots.

“Evaluation is still going on with some spots,” coach Ron Rolston said. “From where we’re at, there will be some tough choices we have to make. I think that’s what we want. We want guys to compete for those spots.”

As we point out in today's story, it's reasonable to assume that 17 players have roster spots locked up. (You can say that Drew Stafford hasn't wowed anyone in preseason after a terrible year, but the $4 million forward was still wearing an "A" during games and won't be demoted to Rochester.)

So who will go to the Amerks? More importantly, who will stay in Buffalo? Have your say below.
