Buffalo Sabres Daily: NHL Draft, Jordan Palmer, Simpsons

Worst draft picks in the history of the Buffalo Sabres?  Every team has them, and at times the Buffalo Sabres look like the Edmonton Oilers.  [Two In The Box/Hometown Hockey].

My favorite part of this article, not that it is the extension of a series that has gone on way to long, is the “stick around in the NHL,, get sent back to Rochester, rinse, and repeat.”.  It was like Shawn Anderson came with a set of instructions that the Buffalo Sabres could follow.

Drafted in the 1986 draft by the Buffalo Sabres with a fifth overall draft pick, he would be one of the highest Buffalo Sabres ever drafted outside of Gilbert Perreault and Pierre Turgeon.  His only cruz however, despite being drafted so high, and spending time with four NHL teams, he would only muster eleven regular season goals in 255 NHL games.

He did see the NHL post season, and in nine-teen playoff games, he notched one NHL goal.

Swing and a miss Buffalo Sabres, swing and a miss.

Jordan Palmer expected to sign with the Buffalo Bills.  [Buffalo Rumblings].

The Buffalo Bills are finally seeing the err of their ways with the QB position as just about everyone is not happy with the situation at quarterback.

Palmer should easily be able to step into the backup role with little competition, and could find himself replacing EJ Manuel as the starter before the season gets too old.

Is Palmer enough to save the Buffalo Bills from another lack luster season?  At least it is a move that does something, and not just lead the Buffalo Bills into another season with what the fans have been used to.  Ownership changed cannot come soon enough, and with that, possibly a change in the football department as well?

The stories the Stanley Cup could tell if it could talk, and the one the league took exception with, wasn’t even real.  [Deadspin].

stanley cupThe Simpsons were one of the first television shows to really not care if they crossed a line or not.  It has subsequently gotten worse with the likes of South Park, American Dad, and Family Guy – all shows that know where the line is, and just act like it isn’t there.

So Krusty gets a little punch drunk, and throws up back into the Stanley Cup.  Does the NHL, who issued a cease and desist letter to the Simpsons about it (which the Simpsons ignored) really think that Krusty was the first person, fictional or not to coat the inside or outside of hockey’s holy grail with vomit?
