10th, 10th?

I just find this hard to believe after last season and our youth at center?

We were ranked 23rd last week: http://espn.go.com/n...son/2013/week/1

Moving up 13 spots without playing a single game.  Seems legit.

Based on what ... wishful thinking?

No hockey is being played and these are the week #2 rankings.

Sabres behind Carolina, but ahead of Philly, Ottawa, Detroit and a bunch of others.

ESPN is a joke!

Obviously they are impressed by what Grigorenko has done.

If there's one thing worse than power rankings, it's power rankings during a lockout.

In 6th grade the gym teacher used to power rank the girls in class for square dancing. When you had 1 hottie, 2 okays, and a woofer in the square, guys would fight to avoid the woofer. To avoid hard feelings we just set up a square of hotties, a square of sure why nots, a square of if the plane was crashing, and a square of bubonic plague. This way everyone got the glory but had to take their medicine as well.

Some things never change.  Swing your partner ... do si do ...

I remember square dancing, but it was in grade 2 and not in gym class.

Yeah I'll have to disagree on that. This coming season (if it even happens) will be much less aggravating for sure since Roy is gone and they'll act more like a team, and a team that can hit. But they're gunna struggle to score. Pending some serious improvements to the defense, I'm seeing a very one dimensional team that can't outscore or out-defend their opponents.

I disagree with the ranking. It looks like hockey won't start until late December at the earliest, shaving off the part of the year when the Sabres are the worst in the league. Given their usual torrid play in January and February I think they should be ranked in the top 3.

Or maybe they need 3 months of practise games to warm up in which cause we be Effed

Not sure where to stick this little gem ...

Justin Piercy (I have no idea who this clown is) has the Sabres ranked at 12th in the East.  Nice comments from Justin, as well.

Don't really disagree with the ranking, did he do any work at all other than reference the Roy trade?  How about discussing center depth?  Lazy journalism.

Neither do I.

Being a lazy journalist is a requirement to work at the CBC.  It may even be in the job description / ads for jobs.
