Friday!

Friday!

Friday!

You’ve worked hard (most of you) and deserve to play hard now that the work week is almost over.  What you do with this weekend is your business, but

take this word of advice: if you have to call someone at any point this weekend and ask for bail, you’ve gone too far.

Onto the links!

Well, there’s one more free agent off the shelf.  Mikhail Grabovski finally has a new team.  [TSN] No, that’s okay Buffalo: we didn’t want him anyway!

Speaking of free agents: here’s nine who are still available (well, 8, since Grabovski as on here).  [Sports Illustrated]  The headline of this article should read, “Not Coming to a Buffalo Sabres Team Near You!”

Ever wonder which NHL team has the best jerseys?  Which ones have the worst?  Where the Buffalo Sabres fit in all of this?  And, more importantly, how many beers you have to drink before you say to yourself, “I think there ought to be a power ranking for every jersey in professional sports!”?  Well, this link can answer most of those questions!  [ESPN]  The fact that this comes from ESPN tells you all you need to know, honestly.

Here’s a preview of the 10 most under-appreciated NHL players heading into the 2013-2014 season.  [Bleacher Report]  Let the debate begin!

More discussion on who should be the next captain of the Buffalo Sabres continues!  [Die By The Blade]  Lord, this offseason needs to end quickly.

And speaking of ending: the Buffalo Sabres are being ridiculous about the new third jersey.  Here’s a look at the new captain’s patches. [Die By The Blade]  Sabres: you have not given us much to be excited about for next season, so could you at least show us the damn jersey already?  Cripes.

Be good!

    The Sabres don’t wear jerseys, they wear sweaters. I wish people could get that straight, football players, baseball players and soccer players wear jerseys; hockey players wear sweaters.

      :D I think sweaters is the most traditional word, but not many people are using it any more. Even the Sabres Twitter feed is referring to it as the third jersey, my friend!

        I believe it, we are living in a world where wrong is right and right is wrong.

      Strange pet peeve.

      Out of curiosity I did google searches on both

      NHL Sweater ==> 3,200,000 results
      NHL Jersey ==> 89,400,000 results

      in quotes:

      “NHL Sweater” ==> 10,300 results
      “NHL Jersey” ==> 1,450,000 results

      The common modern day usage appears to be “jersey”
