Bernier on top line

Coach Lindy Ruff is going with the old adage that if you get a new player, put him in the best spot to succeed right away. Steve Bernier, acquired by the Sabres on Tuesday for Brian Campbell, will play on the top line tonight against Nashville. Bernier will play right wing with center Derek Roy and left wing Thomas Vanek.

In the other moves brought about by the Campbell deal, Dmitri Kalinin will join Jaroslav Spacek and Nathan Paetsch will be inserted to play alongside Nolan Pratt.
