Things have been crazy around here lately, so I apologize for missing a week and a half – but I’m back, with a new podcast that I have entitled, Hope Floats.
(Get used to the movie references, folks – it’s who I am!)
Of course, I could have easily called this Hope Sinks, as any hope we have of watching this iteration of the Buffalo Sabres become competitive during the 2013-2014 season is slowly sinking under the weight of this franchise’s upper management. For whatever reason, Terry Pegula currently seems to think that it in order to become a Stanley Cup-winning franchise eventually, it is okay to present the hockey world with a team that could make a serious run at becoming the worst team in NHL history. (Currently, the modern record is held by the 1074-1975 Washington Capitals, who went 8-67-5 and accumulated a mere 21 points in an 80-game season. Chew on that!)
I am trying to be positive, readers, so my picks for this week favor the Buffalo Sabres! Most of my podcast is spent discussing the lack of leadership on display so far this season, as well as explaining why tonight’s game against the Bruins could very well decide the fate of this team, its coach, or its general manager. No pressure, boys!
Take a listen, and never forget – leave me questions or topics to consider for future podcasts! Enjoy!
