Seems like a normal day of practice -- even if it's not

By Mike Harrington

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Sabres are on the ice at the Tampa Bay Times Forum and nothing is amiss. Every player rumored to be leaving -- Matt Moulson, Jaroslav Halak, Chris Stewart among others -- is here. 

There is loud banter all over and spirits seem good after yesterday's off day. Ville Leino left the ice briefly with a minor injury and quickly came back as smiling coach Ted Nolan yelled to me in the stands,  "he coulda been traded!"

The lines are as follows:

Moulson-Ennis-Stafford
Foligno-Hodgson-Stewart
Flynn-Girgensons-D'Agostini
Ellis-Konopka-Leino/McCormick

There are seven D skating, including John Scott, and both goalies.

Stay tuned.
