On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about the team's latest setbacks, losses to Toronto and Philadelphia, which have left them even further outside of a playoff position. Also a look at the two trades GM Jason Botterill made prior to Monday's deadline and how the addition of defenseman Brandon Montour is a move for both the present and the future.
