Sunday’s here!

I’ve always felt bad for Sunday – it’s so under-appreciated.  Friday gets all the hype, and Saturday is loaded with potential . . . but Sunday means the end of the weekend and the beginning of the work week, and it’s usually given the shaft.  Stores and restaurants close earlier on Sundays, weekend festivals don’t run a full day on Sunday, Sunday gets stuck with NASCAR . . . bummer.   Let’s try and spice up this Sunday!

You know what makes a day lively?  Debate!  Head over to this blog’s Top 20 Sabres of All-Time list.  It’s just getting started, but it’s already enough to spark conversation/argument! [Hockey Buzz]

You can debate this topic, as well: why the NHL needs to schedule more outdoor games. [Bleacher Report]  That’s right – kill a special event!

Things are still quiet on the Buffalo trade front.  I always check My NHL Rumors for the latest rumors and signings, just in case.

Perhaps you have not noticed, but the Buffalo Sabres have a good amount of depth at the goaltender position in their system right now.  Read here to see how the young prospects are approaching the upcoming season.  [The Buffalo News]

It’s going to be an exciting year for fans of Mikhail Grigorenko.  How can the Sabres help this young Russian reach his potential? [The Buffalo News]

Speaking of improving – which NHL teams are going to make the biggest strides next season?  Read here, then hop into the conversation in the comments section! [Bleacher Report]

Last: there’s lots of young prospects who hope to get a permanent spot on the Sabres’ roster like Grigorenko did this year.   Is Zemgus Girgensons close? [Hockey Buzz]  And should Mark Pysyk be in this conversation, too?  [WGR 550]

Make it a good one!
