At the end of the post season, the Buffalo Sabres announced that the team of Darcy Regier and Lindy Ruff would be back for at least one more season. When will enough be enough? We have already had to suffer better than a decade of either piss poor hockey or getting nauseous over that close enough to taste it but just not quite there type hockey.
So where does Sabre Nation, as a collective begin pulling what little hair they have left out for the 2010-2011 hockey season? Is it on Friday, when we fail to make a move for players like Tomas Kaberle or Nathan Horton?
Will it continue to July 1st, when we watch Henrik Tallinder and Toni Lydman sign deals in other NHL cities at prices the Sabres could have easily afforded?
I saw in passing a comment on Twitter that pretty much summed up the bulk of this article…it was another blogger deciding on whether or not they should just write an article venting about the inaction of Darcy Regier and the Sabres. All I could do is laugh, because, history does tend to repeat itself.
In talking with a few people the other day, who were overly excited about the Sabres chances at making a splash in free agency and trades this offseason.
I told them exactly what we are probably going to hear come training camp:
We like the group of guys that we have. Of course we tried to upgrade over the summer, but the price was just too high. We are going to rely on our corp group, and hope that Portland can supply enough bodies to help us into the playoffs.
Be sure to mark October 9th on your calender, that’s when the excuses start for next season – and we finally face someone other than the Montreal Canadiens, this year its the New York Rangers.
