Another setback for the Sabres?

Not much has gone according to plan for the Buffalo Sabres so far this season. Following a disappointing 2011-12 campaign in which they missed the playoffs for the first time in three years, 2012-13 was supposed to be an opportunity to get back on track. Instead, Thomas Vanek -- along with the emergence of Cody Hodgson -- has been one of the lone consistently bright spots. And now his status for the club's next game is up in the air.
