Playing Frankenstein: Buffalo Sabres Lines By Me

Buffalo Sabres fans, can you feel the excitement in the air?

You can?  Then your hands are somewhere they are not supposed to be, my friends, because I was only using a metaphor to describe the elation we all experience emotionally when hockey season rolls around!

The Sabres begin their 2013-2014 training camp tomorrow, with the preseason kicking off for the boys in blue and gold Sunday against the Montreal Canadiens.   In anticipation of the beginning of the season, I have decided to put my Victor Frankenstein cap on and concoct four forward line combinations I would like to see the Buffalo Sabres employ during the preseason.  We all criticize coaches pretty freely, so I figured I would give this a whirl in order to see just how difficult it can be to strategically create successful NHL lines.

That way, I can criticize Ron Rolston all I want, having walked a mile in his shoes!

Just kidding . . . sort of.  Onto my lines!
