    Thought there was a limit to the numbers of players with AHL exp that could be on the roster? The Sabres have 6-7, one of which played 19 games in the NHL last season. I thought the limit was three and they had to be 1st year players?

    The limit is four playing in a game. So they can have more than that but they can’t dress them all. That said there are ALWAYS exceptions granted so… :)
