Good morning Buffalo Sabres fans! How is your morning shaping up? Where I am north of the boarder I woke up to a whack on snow,
hopefully it’s not snowing where you are and you can enjoy a beautiful Saturday spent not watching the Buffalo Sabres. Over the next 10 days I have the pleasure of introducing a friend from New Zealand to the wonderful game of hockey, not sure if showing her the Sabres is the best way to do that but she should get the gist of the game no?
Anyways enough about me and on to the hockey news you actually want to hear as we take you on a journey around the rest of the NHL this snowy morning.
Here’s one for the Toronto Maple Leafs, a team that Rich really really likes. I think we here at SabreNoise can admit the Leafs have started off the season pretty well-heck of a lot better than the Sabres- but don’t worry all you who like to hate on the Leafs, that hot streak won’t last.

Here are your 13 biggest disappointments so far this NHL season and no the Buffalo Sabres as a whole are not on that list, but Ron Rolston is. [Puck Daddy]
There is little question that Jaromir Jagr has still got it and he’s been showing it as he continues to cement his name into the NHL record books. But Jaromir Jagr believes he still has enough in the tank to attend and play in the next two Olympic games he would be 46 in 2018. If he can do it my hat is certainly off to the man. [Star-Ledger]
You know the Old spice guy? Yes, the guy your man can smell like? Well it turns out not only is he a former football player, he is a huge hockey nut who laces up the skates to play with the boys. He will be in Sochi and will attend a few hockey games. [The Color of hockey]
Anyone remember the legendary Forbes Kennedy who played for the Boston Bruins years ago? Well years ago he made one little kid extremely hockey by giving him a signed stick and this past week that kid returned the stick in turn making Kennedy extremely happy. [The Guardian]
