Dear Sabre Noise readers – have you seen my wife?
She disappeared last night about an hour after we had finished our Thanksgiving Day feast, and she hasn’t been seen since. I think I may have heard her enter the house sometime in the wee hours of this morning, but I was half asleep and she wasn’t in bed when I awoke.
It’s okay – I’m not alarmed. This sort of thing happens every Black Friday now. Chances are, she’ll return when she either needs sleep, or runs out of money. Hopefully, none of you are trying to fight the crowds on the busiest shopping day of the year and are seated comfortably, ready for the day’s links!

And what about the NHL’s top 50 players – bet you were wondering who they were, weren’t you? [b/r] Not a Sabres player on that list. Sorry, but Miller ought to be, and that’s just one of the problems I have with this list.
I’m sure you have heard about the lawsuit some ex-players have raised against the NHL. Read this in order to get a detailed breakdown of what the suit alleges. [Sports Illustrated]

Following the last meeting between the Sabres and Leafs, I almost started an international incident. Who knows – I may do that again tonight! In the meantime, our friends to the north can fume over this mishandling of “O Canada.” [Puck Daddy]
I love trade rumors! Here’s the latest on the Montreal Canadiens. [The Hockey News]
Finally, here’s your Sabres-specific link, which explains how the Buffalo Sabres organization is hoping that history repeats itself when it comes to the team’s current rebuild.
Stay safe, and come back later today for all of our Leafs-Sabres game coverage!
