New Buffalo Sabres head coach Phil Housley wants to ice an aggressive, fast team.
Nolan, 28, isn’t expected to carry much of a scoring workload. His career-high for points is 10, and he’s only managed that feat once.
Still, he has experience, and Nolan only costs the Sabres a roster spot. Even if you’re not particularly moved by the addition, there isn’t really a ton of risk involved.
Again, with Tyler Ennis and others out of town, there’s at least a subtle trend toward getting bigger in Buffalo.
