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!
