Buffalo Sabres & NHL: Tuesday Muse Day

Tuesday Muse Day will be a ranting, raving, rambling weekly article relating to all things hockey, with a particular focus on the NHL and the Buffalo Sabres. This is the sixth edition. These are my personal thoughts and opinions; thus, they may not be lucid.

Wayne Gretzky – The Great One has 99 problems, but Seattle ain’t one. Gretzky recently visited Seattle with some of the Oilers brass. Don’t worry, they only went to attend a Seattle Seahawks football game. No, there was no intention there to ruffle the feathers of anyone in Edmonton…

Oklahoma City – Meanwhile, locked out Oilers Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle are prepping for the AHL season with the Oklahoma City Barons. Taylor Hall could possibly join them once he finishes rehabbing from his shoulder surgery…

NHL Lockout – Anyone want to organize a ‘Million Fan March?’ We could lock Donald Fehr and Gary Bettman and all the other necessary parties in a room until an agreement is finally reached. To help speed along the process, we could have Nickelback playing on repeat over loudspeakers…

Buffalo Bills – Only the Bills could manage to give up 80 points to the New England Patriots in the second half of their last 2 meetings. The Bills at one point had been leading by a combined score of 42-7 at one point in each game…

Pat LaFontaine – La La La La LaFontaine was approached with an opportunity to buy the struggling New York Islanders. Read more HERE

Rochester Americans – The countdown to the first Amerks game of the 2012-13 season has now dwindled down to 10 days. Will you be there?

Cody Hodgson – is among some of the Sabres who will be lacing up the skates for the Amerks during the NHL lockout. Players such as Jason Spezza, Eric Staal, and Thomas Vanek were among the names that benefitted from playing in the AHL during the last NHL lockout. “I’ll use this as an advantage to keep playing and as a jump-start,” said Hodgson, in an interview with the Toronto Sun. “Look at the other guys who did that in the last lockout. I’ve got to take advantage of the time I’m given here to play.”

KHL – The KHL will broadcast games in the United States during the NHL lockout. The Russian-based league announced Tuesday that it plans to air five games on ESPN3 this month and indicated that future games are “still being finalized.” ESPN3 is in 73 million households. The news is interesting considering that ESPN and SportsCenter appear to have avoided any sort of NHL news as much as possible. Wednesday’s game between Dynamo Moscow and Ak Bars Kazan will be the first game televised…

Krys Barch – fired off quite a few drunken tweets about the NHL labor impasse. Good for him. If any regular human criticized their company or management in the way that he did, he would not have a future in his business. It must be great to make six figures a year, despite only having 31 points in 304 NHL games, right Krys?

Adam Oates – The NHL Hall-Of-Famer and passer extraordinaire will be co-coaching the Hershey Bears of the AHL during the lockout. Oates was the 15th fastest player to reach 1,000 points in the NHL, well deserving of a candy bar…
