Ahhhh!

The end is near!  the sky is falling!  The sky is falling!

No – it’s not the apocalypse.  It’s the end of my summer, and darn it, it sucks.  The good news is that I love my job.  The bad news is, I love my summers, too!

What, oh what, can console me on this final Friday of August?  Why, the links, of course!

There’s been a lot of discussion on this site lately – most of it by me – about whether relying on the draft is the approach the Buffalo Sabres should be taking for their rebuild.  How many of the Sabres’ prospects will turn out to be solid, if not spectacular, NHL players?  Good question.  Hopefully, a Sabres prospect or two makes a list similar to this one in the not-so-distant future. [Bleacher Report]

Yes, the Buffalo Sabres are young.  But there’s a lot of good, young talent all over the NHL.  Here’s a look at every NHL team’s best player under 25 years of age. [Bleacher Report]

When there’s no news to report, you look for ideas.  Sometimes, you have to hop in the time machine and search for items of interest. . . such as the most ridiculous car ads made by NHL players?  [Sports Illustrated] Hey – whatever works for you!

Maybe you had not noticed, but the Sabres are getting ready to announce a third jersey.  Let’s hope it never ends up on this list.  [Sports Illustrated]

There’s not much news to report on this yet, but it would appear that the Sabres are in talks with a few teams about a possible trade. [Hockey Buzz] Finally- someone in the organization is reading my work!

And finally, some Buffalo Sabres-specific pieces: the top defensemen in the All-Star Sabres team, and a look at a very important set of statistics that Rob Vollman would be proud of, I’m sure!

Enjoy!!!
