Tick Tock Tick Tock – summer, that’s for whom the bell tolls, and at this point, I am ready for the unbearing cold that the city of Buffalo and the Niagara region gets just so I can see the ice again – and see what the Buffalo Sabres have to offer for this season.  I am not anticipating a great season, or even having thoughts of a parade in June of 2015 – but I am eager to see Ron Rolston’s vision, how the prospects gel on the ice and what will happen for the future of this franchise.

Eric Schmidt from “Third Man In” is featured on Puck Daddy’s League of Nation’s summer feature, and gives us the best player from each major country in the hockey world that ever donned a Buffalo Sabres sweater.  Who would captain this international all time squad?  [Puck Daddy]

All time teams seem to be the thing to do in the month of August, and here is the best of the Buffalo Sabres from the folks at CBS Sports.  [CBS Sports]

Dollars for dollars, luxury taxes, cash to cap, there all sports terms when it comes to player salaries.  Who was the best bargain for the Buffalo Sabres last year when you consider dollars for points? [Die By The Blade]

It is official, the National Hockey League no longer owns the Phoenix Coyotes.  Will the new owners bring stability to the desert?  [NHL].

The NHL might not have unbalanced divisions for long.  Seattle could join the league as early as next season.  Seattle would most likely join the Pacific.  [Puck Daddy]

Don’t want the NHL to expand?  Expansion is a must to fix the unbalanced realignment the NHL pushed on the NHLPA after the lockout.  Whose next after Seattle?  The NHL still needs one more franchise in the Central division.  Kansas City?  Oklahoma?  [Bleacher Report]
