And Brennan also sits - both in plane seats heading in opposite directions.

Not sure how this team responds with the key losses of 25 and 33.  ;)

On one hand, I hate mediocrity, so if the team is going to suck, it should suck all the way and get a top 3 draft pick.  On the other hand, I just can't bring myself to cheer for the team to lose.

Let's go, Buffalo!

Root for them to lose 7-6 every game, this way it's entertaining

Yep just two more young guys gone to ensure the dead weight less competition for their jobs. (As if there were any to begin with)

I am very curious to see how silly Ville looks today. I'm sure he will be a little rusty and it may take him a few games to get himself up to full speed.

I like the Sabres today 4-2 with maybe a Scott/Neil tussle if Scott plays. I believe he was scratched last game against the Sens.

Good call. Especially against Ottawa. Would love to see Scott knock out Chris Neil. That would be a highlight for me.

Let's go Buffalo

Same here! I know a loss could benefit the Sabres, but I'm excited about watching the Sabres play tonight and will be happy if they manage to score some goals and win. Just can't root for Buffalo to lose...ever.

This will be the first game after the arbitrary date I set, where I thought the team would start to be more Rolston than Ruff.

Has Alfredsson ever not scored on us? Stop him, ignore Neil, and we win.

Scott- Matt Kassian ? This seems to be more the match-up then Scott-Neil.

As always, GO SABRES !

Yup.  And after their fight Scott will be nailed to the bench and Neil will run roughshod.

That's right ... 4:00 PM here.

So our friend from the dark side will have no excuse not to suffer through another Sabre game.

Either that, or he will have to come up with another excuse ... any excuse ... :P

I actually have a good feeling about this one.  A big win coming up, I just feel it.

I love the fact that if someone was so inclined (and I just might be), they could watch almost 12 hours of uninterrupted, live hockey today.

Yes, just remembered Ottawa traded for him. He's definitely a better match-up with Scott, but Neil will take on anyone as well.

Last year and half...

I benched Foligno for the first time all season last game and he scored two goals.

Today I'm benching Myers. My guess is Myers scores today.

Vanek-Hodgson-Pommer
Ott-Ennis-Leino
Foligno-Porter-Flynn
Gerbe-Hecht-Stafford

Interesting set of lines.  First time in a while that we can legitimately roll 4, I think.
