I can't take it anymore. I know I'm stepping on someone's toes by breaking the GDT rules but I don't care! The captains are picked, the roster is set, and the NHL officially starts tonight. Meaningful hockey is nigh!

Let's do this.

Now begins the battle between us in the apartment. Damn these new division lines. Damn my being born near Detroit. I can't be a part of Sabres v Wings GDTs.

I love the early GDT. Sharpen the blades and drop the puck...

C'mon. Sure you can. Don't go all Millbank on us.

Also, I'd like to share a GIF that shares how fired up I am for the start of the season:

Speaking of Millsie, playing in Michigan in an Olympic year and a contract year… I'll be shocked if he doesn't stand on his head.

Well done.  I was waiting for this haha.

I'm going out and saying a nice upset to start the year with a final score of 4-2 for the good guys.  I think Girgs is going to help Grigs in a big way as they look to have instant chemistry.  Hockey's back baby!!  :beer: :beer:

Nothing like opening day after two painful years of mostly bad hockey to put me in a real pro-Sabre, ###### everybody else mood.
So ###### you Detroit. ###### you Chara. ###### you Kessel and ###### anyone else who gets in our way.
Drop the ###### puck.

If they don't lose this game, Darcy needs to be fired for not ordering Rolston to lose for that #1 pick.

The Sabres appear to have updated some of the heights and weights of players on the roster including Johan Larsson and Tyler Ennis

I love it. An opportunity to test yourself against a good team. I'll be looking to see if any have the deer in the headlights look vs. that certain gleam. I have Girgs pegged for a gleamer. Risto, too. Throw the kids in the deep end and see if they can swim.

GO SABRES!!!

I highly highly doubt it. They've got some magic, sure, but I'm not a believer that they're in certain contention, despite being a fan. Sabres games could be a lot of fun to watch against the Wings this year.
