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!

There were 200 games played in the NHL last night – true story!  Get all of your recaps here.  [TSN]

Tomas Hertl got a little bit of flack for showing off during his four-goal outburst against the New York Rangers next week.  Lighten up, fuddy-duddies!  the NHL could use more players like him.  Need a reminder?  Here: the top ten most exciting players in the NHL.  [Sports Illustrated]   Prepare to drool!

Just yesterday I posted a link that asked whether the Toronto Maple Leafs were as good as their record suggested.  No one will be asking that if these types of plays keep happening!  [Puck Daddy]

Few words in the English language cause me to perk up like the word “sniper” can!  Here’s a list of the 10 greatest snipers in NHL history. [Bleacher Report] Ten times the snipery goodness!

There’s no doubt about it: the Sabres have been hanging their goalies out to dry, and last night Ryan Miller was their latest victim.  [Hockey Buzz]

Finally, let’s end on a positive note.  One of the surprises so far this year has been the play of Drew Stafford.  Can he build off of his recent success? [WGR 550]

Have a good one!
