NLL: Buffalo Bandits Final Roster

With less than two weeks until the 2014 National Lacrosse League regular season gets underway, the time is now for teams to submit their final rosters to the NLL office for opening day. Teams had up until Noon ET on Monday to submit their roster of 20 game players and four practice squad players which means fans will be anxiously awaiting to find out which players made the cut, and which were given their walking papers.

One of the first teams to announce its final roster was the Buffalo Bandits.

Buffalo was the only team to miss the postseason in 2013, and saw plenty of change in the makeup of the roster thanks to trades by general manager Steve Dietrich that brought the likes of Rory Smith, Ryan Benesch  and Joe Resetarits to Banditland.
