Look Back: Luke Adam played in 19 games for the Sabres and registered the game winning goal on January 6th against the San Jose Sharks.  At the time it seemed insignificant, but in reflection helped kick start the Sabres post January 1st run.  He spent most of the second half of the season down in Portland where he averaged more than a point a game and was named AHL Rookie of the Year.  Although his production stalled while with the Sabres, his performance in Portland bodes well moving forward.

 Look Ahead: Given the uncertainty of some of the Sabres lineup heading into this offseason it is hard to believe that Adam will not be given every opportunity to compete for a position on the parent club for the 2011-12 season.  He will need to become a more consistent producer to maintain his roster spot, but even if he enters the season like Nathan Gerbe with a slow first half of the season, fans will need to be patient with the young player while getting acclimated.

Fake Darcy’s take: Luke has scored everywhere he’s played, except for us.  I expect that to change if he can compile a ton of garbage goals in front of the net. He comes from a hockey lineage as well.  His dad played a total of 8 games in the NHL for the Leafs.  I love that his career was only 40% of mine, a fact I will drill into if he comes on of those dad’s trips.
