A front-loaded schedule of heavy hitters will put the Buffalo Sabres on a good head start for Connor McDavid. [Buffalo News].
If it weren’t a year in which the Buffalo Sabres wanted to be bad – I would be upset over the number of playoff teams and the vigorous schedule in the front end of the 2014-2015 slate of games. Games against so many playoff teams so early in the season -could demoralize and cripple a young roster, all but ensuring that the Buffalo Sabres will be picking at the top of the NHL Entry Draft next year as well.
It is going to be a long and bumpy ride Sabres fans – strap in and hold on for the ride.
Highlights from the 2014-2015 schedule include 22 weekend games. [Die By The Blade].
Well at least with weekend games if there is suffering, then at least fans will be able to recover the next day from having to drink a few extra beverages to get through the night.
Buffalo also gets three “holiday” games on Columbus Day, Thanksgiving Eve, and New Years Eve.
One thing the Buffalo Sabres need to do a better job of is a return of the Tux and Pucks event on the New Year’s Eve game – something they lost when they went away from that date on the schedule.
Check back here often throughout this week as we take a more in depth look at each month on the schedule.
The Buffalo Bisons move back to .500 in the standings with wins over the Rochester Red Wings. [Jays Journal].
Sure a Stanley Cup or a Lombardi trophy are where Buffalo Fans are at – and well, who knows when the Toronto Blue Jays will vie for a World Series. It would be nice for the Bisons to add another league pennant on their wall.
Can the Buffalo Bisons take a stab at the playoffs this year and get some support from Toronto to bring in a AAA title?
