So several weeks ago, well maybe two, I posted an article entitled Its Not Always About the Money. It was about Tim Kennedy, the Buffalo Sabres, arbitration, and about the fact that both sides really botched a chance to keep a Buffalo kid here in Buffalo.
The article wasn’t pro-Sabres, the article wasn’t Pro-Kennedy. The article took a lot of crap from commentors, so I pulled the article, because I was spending more time defending my writing and it was going no where but in circles.
So he we are again back at the beginning, with Kennedy not having an NHL home for this year. Once he clears waivers, he will be assigned to Hartford of the AHL.
I am not saying the Sabres were right, I am not saying Tim Kennedy was right – but had he taken the Sabres initial qualifying offer, he would be in the same shows, making the same amount of money with a lot less drama – and a better chance at making an NHL roster come injury bug time.
So now that it makes much more sense, all you naysayers and pro-Kennedy deserves a million dollars to stay in Buffalo can sit down, shut up, and listen to me tell you I told you so.
