Welcome back, Sabres fans!
O should I say, welcome back Buffalo Sabres. Strange as it may sound, I’ve missed the Sabres and their frustrating brand of hockey these past two weeks. Yes, the Sabres are 15-34-8, with their 38 points 9 worse than the NHL’s second-worst team, the Edmonton Oilers. Yes, half of their roster probably belongs in the AHL, or better yet, coaching youth hockey. Even so, I love the franchise and miss the boys when they are off.
Allow me , then, to be one of the first fans to welcome everyone – the Sabres and you, the fans – back, and as a token of my gratitude I have created this handy little guide on what to expect as we kick off the second part of the season. After all, there are still 25 games left on the calendar and an NHL trade deadline of March 5 coming up, so it’s imperative that we all be on top of our game. Take notes if you must, but here it is: what to expect from the Sabres 2.0.
