Well, Buffalo Sabres fans, another Friday is upon us.  With that comes the sad realization that the work week is -sniff! – over.

Done.  Cooked.  Expired.  Terminated.

Ah, work week – we hardly knew ye.  And hardly cared!  Forget you, buddy – it’s the weekend!  Yeah!

Upward and onward – to the links!

Last night featured more action-packed preseason hockey!  Get all of your recaps here.  [TSN]

The NHL has instituted a no-tuck rule when it comes to jerseys – and they mean to enforce it!  Read more, including a possible reason why the NHL is so adamant on enforcing this seemingly-arbitrary rule.  [Sporting News]

The Buffalo Sabres have a lot of young guys playing really well right now – but did any of them make the list of the most impressive rookies in training camps so far?  [Bleacher Report] You’ll just have to read to find out!

ESPN – the Worldwide Leader in Sports Not Counting the NHL – recently created a few lists in anticipation of the upcoming NHL season.  As usual, ESPN made some mistakes worthy of a head-smacking . . . or a snarky post over at Puck Daddy!

I don’t know about you, but I have always had mixed feelings about being a sports fan.  Why do we get so emotionally invested in teams that routinely change players and coaches?  It’s tribalism, duh!  [The Hockey News]

Did last night’s game save some prospects from the next round of cuts?  [WGR 550]

Finally, if you can tolerate Garth’s annoying need to make sure you know he is allowed in the Sabres locker room, here’s an interesting look at the two sides of Nikita Zadorov.  [Hockey Buzz]

Be good to yourselves!
