Good morning to you all!

Hope you have access to air conditioning, a pool, lots of water, and maybe even some ice cold beer wherever you are, because the next days are going to be muy caliente!   Stay cool, dear readers.

Here are some cool links to get your day started.

Yesterday I admitted I was partially wrong in labeling the Buffalo Sabres’ 2013 NHL Draft a step backwards.  However, are they truly winning this offseason?  Find out here!  [Bleacher Report]

The Sabres were wise to stay out of the free agency nonsense.  Most teams got sucked into it, however.  Which teams got the best deals, and which overpaid drastically?  [Bleacher Report]

Afraid Ilya Kovalchuk is going to inspire other Russian stars, like Mikhail Grigorenko,  to defect to the KHL?  b/r doesn’t think that is likely.  [Bleacher Report]

There’s a lot of potential superstars on the Sabres, and around the league as well.  Care to gaze into a crystal ball and see who the future superstars for each team will be?  [Bleacher Report]

What does the hiring of Ron Hextall mean over in Philadelphia?  [Sports Illustrated]  Sure wish the Sabres would start bringing in some past legends!

The list of top 20 all-time Sabres players continues – check it out! [Hockey Buzz]

Finally, there’s so many defensemen, so little room.  So who should be on the Sabres’ blueline next season, anyway? [Die By The Blade]

The NHL schedule will be released on Wednesday. Check out our partners at TiqIQ for the best deals on Buffalo Sabres tickets.
