That sounds risky.  That would upset the fine balance that is the 2013-2014 Buffalo Sabres.

They could and I doubt that he would be claimed.  I think the Amerks already have the maximum amount of vets allowed on their roster, so they'd have to get rid of another player to send him there.

I can not understand why Rolston continues to make some of these lineup moves, if these "kids" are what is to be the future of the team, let them play and stop flip flopping them in and out of the lineup.

It's difficult to discuss details of the game when it hasn't been played yet.  Discussing moves/decisions/situations relevant to, and which may directly affect, the game, is perfectly reasonable.  Expecting coach and GM references to not be made in threads on a message board about a sports team is exceptionally unreasonable.

Apparently expecting adults to control themselves and understand when to tone it down is exceptionally unreasonable as well. I guess I'm just an exceptionably unreasonable person. I would assume any following posts will be in regards to how out of line I am for expecting anything different. Funny part about it is, if I make any negative remark about Miller then I get chastised for being repetitive. Even though I haven't said anything about him for months.

Carry on children.

So far we're one of the worst teams in NHL history.  I see no reason for this board to be sunshine and rainbows.

On that note, my bold prediction for tonight is another lackluster loss where we're outshot by a 2-to-1 margin and absolutely dominated in the first period.

It's Groundhog Day here in Sabres land.
