A lot less interested in the game tonight after they traded my boyfriend yesterday.

Also a lot less interested in life.

The pain will last forever.

Take a seat next to Glass Case of Emotion.  The doctor will see you in the offseason.

I guess everyone has their favorite player.  Up until last season, most people hated Vanek.  Hence the whole Vanek is lazy and Vanek face schtick.  Interesting how the barometer swung with him.

My only problem with Vanek is that I always felt he could give just a little bit more than he did. He was missing that extra little bit of "it" that would really have put him over the top.

I have to side with 11 here, ink; there may have been a lot of mixed emotions among the fans towards Vanek, but I don't think hate is/was in the list.

Which of course means he'll be traded. :rolleyes:  The curse of the C. :unsure:

Moulson will play on a line with Hodgson.

Well I hated him up until last season.  If fans didn't hate him, they sure did a lot of complaining about him.

He was the highest paid, biggest star and highest profile player on the team.  Criticism is to be expected.  Not sure any fans hated Thomas Vanek.

I always loved Vanek. He was the only truly elite player on the team.

I liked Vanek a lot.  Trouble is, no team wins a championship with Thomas Vanek as its best player.  He was never the type of guy that you just KNEW would impact each game he played.  

Still, he was a rare talent and there's every chance that neither moulson nor the two draft picks live up to his prowess.

It's perfect, no chemistry required to play on the 2013-2014 Sabres.. He'll fit right in.  Hope he likes playing in the D Zone.

Yes, let's get the word out there that Miller is no longer wanted/needed.  That should drive the price right through the roof.

Well said. The video nfreeman posted of Vanek's classic goal against the Caps reminded me that he would show that burst of speed three times a season. It'll be interesting to see if Capuano/playing with Tavares/a change of scenery/whatever can coax more out of him. (References to Lindy Ruff hurting Vanek's chances at being a truly elite player have been redacted, out of deference to the day.)

Miller's been around for 10 years, been a proven starter, Olympic Silver medalist and MVP, Vezina trophy winner and every GM in the league knows what Darcy is doing. Somehow I don't think playing Enroth is going to make Miler worth any less.

Do you think Dale Tallon is sitting in his office talking to Darcy and saying, 'Ya know Darcy, we really need a starting goaltender and were willing to offer you a 1st round pick. But you didn't play him last week so we're going to shop elsewhere'? Come on..........

I sure do miss Lindy's personality during the presser's.

I hope fans show Lindy some love tonight.
