Sabres' Myers Begins Camp With Gorges

News: Tyler Myers will be paired with veteran shutdown defenseman Josh Gorges to begin the training camp, reports The Buffalo News.
Analysis: As expected, the mercurial Tyler Myers will be paired with the dependable Gorges to begin the season as the Sabres' top pairing. Myers has struggled over the past few seasons since winning the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie, and often looks overwhelmed by the amount of pressure placed on him. The 6-foot-8 defenseman has plenty of talent but just hasn't been able to realize it. Hopefully, Gorges will take some pressure off his shoulders and also allow Myers to take more of an offensive role. If all goes well, Myers could be in line for the best season in his rookie year. He is, without a doubt, the Sabres' best defenseman in fantasy, though the team is expected to finish near the bottom of the standings again.

Asking Price High For Sabres' Myers

News: The Sabres were looking for three pieces - including a first round pick - at the NHL draft in exchange for Tyler Myers and that price hasn't come down yet, reports theScore.
Analysis: The Sabres are undergoing a re-vamp as general manager Tim Murray prepares to put his stamp on the team. Christian Ehrhoff was bought out, which makes Tyler Myers the de facto number one defenseman in Buffalo. The Sabres are obviously not convinced Myers can improve much more in Buffalo, but are still commanding a very high price for the 6-foot-8 former rookie of the year. The Canucks are reportedly interested in Myers, who played junior hockey nearby in Kelowna. A move out of Buffalo should benefit the team and Myers.

Sabres' Myers Collects Assist In Win At Worlds

News: Canada defeated Slovakia 4-1 in the second game at the World Championships and Tyler Myers collected an assist, bouncing back from a subpar performance in his first game.
Analysis: Tyler Myers had the second assist on Joel Ward's third period goal as the Canadians overcame a slow start to win the game. Despite his 6-8 frame, Myers is expected to be more than just a big body on the blue line and is still trying to regain his Rookie of the Year form from a few years back that saw him score 48 points in 82 games. Various injuries and inconsistent play have limited his effectiveness, and the hope is that Myers will gain some much-needed experience at the World Championships as he prepares to be one of the Sabres' leaders next year.

Sabres' Myers Ineffective At World Championships

News: As one of the team's more experienced defensemen, Tyler Myers continued his unimpressive play this year, recording just one shot on goal and two penalty minutes in Friday's loss to France at the World Championships.
Analysis: Paired with 6-5 defenseman Braydon Coburn, Canada's twin towers pairing was generally ineffective against a much weaker Team France. Tyler Myers has been oft-criticized in recent years for not living up to expectations, and his play hasn't improved much in his first game at the World Championships. On more than one occasion he coughed up the puck, and in one key moment in the second period with the game tied 1-1, he needed goalie James Reimer to bail him out. Canada plays Slovakia on Saturday.

Sabres' Myers Named To Canada For Worlds

News: Tyler Myers (ribs) was named to Team Canada for the upcoming World Championships, which was announced Thursday.
Analysis: Tyler Myers had an up-and-down season, but is slowly returning to his Calder-winning form. Canada will carry seven defensemen to the tournament, four of whom are right-handed. If head coach Dave Tippett elects to follow a strict left-right split, Myers will be battling Florida's Erik Gudbranson for ice time. This is the second time Myers has represented Canada at the Worlds. He last appeared on the 2010 squad during which he scored two assists in seven games. Hopefully playing on a much more competitive team will bring out the best of the underachieving defenseman.

Myers' Nine Goals Leads Sabres Defensemen

News: Tyler Myers had a nice bounce-back season offensively this year, totaling nine goals in 62 games to lead all Buffalo defensemen.
Analysis: The offense came alive this season for the 6-foot-8 giant, though he still hasn't quite returned to the Calder-winning form that saw him produce 48 points in 82 games. Maligned by Sabres faithful for his inconsistent play despite his immense potential, Tyler Myers is too often caught out of position, making bad decisions and turning over the puck, and not using his size to good effectiveness. Perhaps the expectations on Myers were far too great, but comparisons to Zdeno Chara have all but disappeared. Myers is still young at 24 years old and will have a lot of time to learn the ropes in the NHL, but with Rasmus Ristolainen, Nikita Zadorov and Jake McCabe looming, combined with the regression in his play, a change of scenery may benefit both sides. Myers is owed $20.5 million over the next five seasons, which also makes him a buyout candidate.

Sabres' Myers Has Broken Ribs

News: Tyler Myers suffered two broken ribs March 25 against the Canadiens, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Tyler Myers missed the last 10 games of the season with the broken ribs, but will presumably be fine for the start of next season. He finished the 2013-14 campaign with nine goals and 13 assists in 62 games.

Sabres Not Ruling Out A Return For Myers

News: The Sabres aren't ruling out a return for Tyler Myers this season.
Analysis: After Sunday, the Sabres will have just four games remaining on the schedule, meaning Tyler Myers will really have to ramp up his activity level in the next few days if he hopes to play again this season. The uncertainty of his timetable probably makes him waiver wire fodder over the season's final week, when having reliably healthy players is paramount.

Sabres' Myers Remains Sidelined

News: Tyler Myers (midsection) is not close to a return to action, the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: While the report -- which specifies Tyler Myers' injury as a midsection issue -- does not indicate any plans to shut down Myers down, his return does not appear imminent as the Sabres approach the last eight games of their regular-season slate.

Sabres' Myers Still Sidelined

News: Tyler Myers (upper body) won't play in Tuesday's game against the Devils, the Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Tyler Myers -- who last suited up on March 25 -- thus remains in the day-to-day category in advance of Thursday's game against the Blues.

Sabres' Myers Out Saturday

News: Sabres coach Ted Nolan said Friday that Tyler Myers (upper body) will miss Saturday's game against the Lightning.
Analysis: Tyler Myers sustained an upper-body injury upon returning from an elbow injury Thursday. At this point, it still looks to be a day-to-day injury, meaning he could be back as soon as Tuesday's contest against the Devils.

Sabres' Myers Ruled Out Thursday

News: Tyler Myers (upper body) will not play Thursday against the Predators.
Analysis: Coach Ted Nolan said Tyler Myers is viewed as day-to-day with the injury, meaning a return to the lineup Saturday against the Bolts would still seem possible. Rasmus Ristolainen was recalled from AHL Rochester on Thursday and will take Myers' spot in the lineup.

Sabres' Myers Sustains Injury In Return

News: Tyler Myers departed Tuesday's game against the Canadiens with an apparent upper-body injury, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: After missing the previous two weeks of action with an elbow ailment, Tyler Myers returned to the ice Tuesday, only to fall victim to injury again. He appeared to hurt himself with just over six minutes left in the third period, when he crashed into the goalpost with what looked like an arm or rib injury. The Sabres should update his condition before their next game Thursday in Nashville.

Sabres' Myers Set To Return

News: Tyler Myers (elbow) indicated that he is good to go in advance of Tuesday's game against the Canadiens.

Sabres' Myers Not Joining Team On Road Right Away

News: Tyler Myers (elbow) will not set out with the team on their five-game road trip beginning Tuesday in Calgary, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: The Sabres' trip spans nearly two weeks, and with Tyler Myers' injury not considered overly serious, coach Ted Nolan didn't rule out the possibility of Myers joining the team at a later date while the remain on the road. The defenseman was starting to find his scoring touch before suffering the injury, picking up six points in his nine games out of the break.

Sabres' Myers Out Saturday, Unlikely For Sunday

News: Tyler Myers (elbow), who has already been ruled out for Saturday, is unlikely to play in Sunday's game against the Canadiens, the Sabres' official website reports.
Analysis: The injury wasn't initially thought to be serious, but now it sounds like Tyler Myers will miss two games and possibly more. His expected absence prompted the Sabres to recall fellow blueliner Rasmus Ristolainen on Saturday.

Sabres' Myers Sits Saturday

News: Tyler Myers (elbow) will not play Saturday against the Islanders.

Sabres' Myers Collects Two Points

News: Tyler Myers scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's win over the Lightning, giving him six points in his last four games.
Analysis: Tyler Myers has been featured in the rumor mill for quite some time, but after a poor start to the season the hulking, 6-foot-8 defenseman is finally producing some points. He has three goals in his last four games, all of which were wins. The Sabres looked a little more focused Thursday night, and part of it may have to do with the fact that players can now concentrate on hockey rather than on when and where they might be traded. Myers still needs to work on his consistency, but the fact that he still has his scoring touch and shows flashes of being a true top-pairing defensemen bodes well for his future.

Myers Sparks Sabres

News: Tyler Myers scored an empty-net goal and added two assists in Friday's 4-2 win over San Jose, giving him four points in the last two games.
Analysis: Tyler Myers picked a good evening to have a productive game as it appears everyone in a Sabres jersey is for sale, including Myers, a player once thought to be the team's future on defense. The towering 24-year old will be an intriguing player for most teams if they can take on his cap hit and minus-23 rating, although the latter is more a product of his team. Keep an eye on Myers, as he could be a heady pickup if he lands in the right situation, provided he is dealt.

Sabres' Myers Drawing Interest In Trade Scenarios

News: The Sabres are reportedly listening to offers for Tyler Myers, reports Darren Dreger from TSN.
Analysis: Since winner the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie, Tyler Myers has failed to live up to expectations as a top defenseman for the Sabres. His point production continues to dip, and he is currently mired in the worst season of his career with a minus-26 rating. However, he's just 24 years old, stands 6-foot-8 and shoots from the right side. Reports indicate Toronto, Anaheim and Colorado as potential fits, but the price will be steep. Myers is a top-four defenseman anywhere he goes, and certainly a move away from the league's worst team could do him some good.

Sabres' Myers To Play Tuesday

News: Tyler Myers (knee) will play Tuesday against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Tyler Myers missed the Sabres' final two games prior to the Olympic break due to the knee injury, but he is ready to go after a few weeks of rest and recovery, and should be able to play his regular role when the Sabres return to action.
