The Buffalo Sabres are done taking care of internal business with their roster.

The Sabres announced they’ve re-signed forward Luke Adam to a one-year two-way deal. Last season, Adam split time between Buffalo and Rochester in the AHL and had far more success with the Americans. He was the final restricted free agent left to be signed by the team.

In 12 games with the Sabres, Adam had one goal but in 59 AHL games he piled up 29 goals and 49 points. He’ll be in a battle during training camp to crack the Sabres roster in September as it would appear the team has their top three lines in order.

In the past, Adam has struggled to put up the same kind of numbers he did in the minors at the NHL level. In 87 career NHL games he has 15 goals and 26 points. The team will need leaders in Rochester, but if Adam wants to be part of the Sabres he’ll have to improve his consistency.

    I like keeping him around on a deal like that, give him one last chance to prove himself before spots start to be filled by the prospects coming up, and guys Murray brought on board. He plays even better on the wing too, so that gives him a chance.

    If he cannot put together another great season in Rochester and/or Buffalo, he might be shipped off to the ECHL, or just waived and replaced altogether…as there are quite a few prospects who are 19/20 and looking to make it to the Amerks soon.

    Look at his points with goal scorers or even 2nd line guys. The guy is a point per game guy, another Gerbe situation in Buffalo. Putting scoring players with grinders.

      He’s not point per game, but he did do pretty well when he was centering Vanek and Pominville.

    That is one awful jersey.

    I’m guessing Eve is still holding out.
