Schools back in session for many if not all schools across the country, and the same can be said about the Buffalo Sabres – as their prospects are lined up to start the Traverse City Tournament tomorrow – with their eyes set on learning as much as they can and impressing their clubs, hoping for an opening night roster spot. Who will impress enough to be with the team come October?
The Buffalo Sabres, usually one of the teams advanced in off ice enhancements will only be offering their fans the Traverse City Tournament via KB 1520 on AM radio. The New York Rangers on the other hand are offering their fans a live internet stream. If your a Rangers fan or playing in the Rangers division – you get to see hockey. The Sabres play the blue shirts on Friday – so set your clocks to 4pm – and check out Blue Shirt Banter for information on the live internet feed. [Blue Shirt Banter].
