Hopefully he doesn't leave with twisted, knot-like veins.

Looking at it from here it looks pretty beat up. Lots of skate troughs.

Really? Money can't buy championship ice either? I'm sure Terry has faith in the people in charge of that department.

Wait, how can this be?  They tell us Buffalo is Hockey Heaven.    It must be a lie - the ice must be fantastic.

Sold a bill of goods on the new cooling system.

I've noticed issues with the ice this year.

It could be intentional, trying to slow Ovi and other players that skate and pass better than the sabres. Which is almost all of them, so next week, we're just playing right on the concrete.

The good ol days when gas was a nickel/gallon and children had respect. Back when a stick and a hoop was all you needed and the streetlights were the curfew.

Isn't that how long ago it was?

I know, right?   It's clearly very jealous and mean-spirited people, envious of the paradise we have here in Hockey Heaven, making up false and slanderous claims to try and belittle us.

This is not news.  And it's why the team got the new laser Zambonis.  But the F'NC/HSBC/MMA/Crossroads was not built with good ice-making equipment for its humidity, apparently.  On top of that, there was a non-hockey event on Friday night.
