The Buffalo Sabres are going to try another treatment for Ville Leino's ailing hip after the previous one didn't induce the response that the team wanted.

Surgery hasn't been brought up yet, but coach Lindy Ruff is concerned that Leino may not play this season. "I guess the answer would be yes because he hasn't played yet," Ruff said. "We're trying a different type of treatment again for what he has. You hope you can gain some traction from it. The answer is I don't know."
