Good morning, Buffalo Sabres fans/NHL aficionados/Sabre Noise readers/people who are annoyed at my use of /!
I know this is not a good time to be a fan of the Sabres. The team is 1-7-1, and is the butt of many jokes; rumors are swirling that the GM is in hot water (this is good news, in my opinion); and two of the best players the Sabres have on the roster, Thomas Vanek and Ryan Miller, are almost certainly up for sale.
But don’t fret . . . because I have today’s links!

Have a good one!
