The Buffalo Sabres and New Jersey Devils remain the only two teams in the National Hockey League without a win.   With a

day off yesterday from game play – the Sabres take on the Chicago Blackhawks tonight.  Will they remain winless or get their first two point effort?

    Be careful what you wish for Sabres fans, if Dorky gets fired by Terribly Peculiar, what genius is going to take his place, Kevin Devine? Or maybe hire a national figure that has GM experience like Mike Milbury? Possibly Jay Feaster when he gets fired in Calgary or Paul Holmgren after he finally gets booted in Philthy? The Brian Burke and Jim Nill types won’t be available for a long time and Mr. Peculiar chained his wagon to a lame, sickly mule.
    That is what suffering is, the prospect of the Groundhog Day syndrome of professional hockey, if that is what they call what they’re playing actually is.
