A Buffalo Sabres Rookie Will Win the Calder Memorial Trophy
I categorize this prediction as “ridiculous” because pretty much no one in the NHL thinks very highly of the Buffalo Sabres any more. Forget the fact that the Sabres rock one of the best sweaters in all of hockey; starting with the Buffaslug, everyone in the NHL decided they were better than the Sabres, and have been looking down their noses at the boys from the 716 ever since. The Sabres have done everything, including publicly executing the guy who designed the Buffaslug, but all to no avail.
That’s all about to change, however, as one of the Sabres’ highly-coveted prospects will out-perform every other rookie in the NHL this season and bring the Calder back where it belongs! Could be Johan Larsson; could be Zemgus Girgensons; could be I have no idea really of what I am talking about! But I’ve got a feeling, baby, and my feelings are never wrong!
Unless you’re talking about my five can’t-miss predictions at the beginning of last season . . . or my Stanley Cup Playoff picks . . . or . . . next!
