Man. He is sorta small.

It's the modern game, though.


Our current d are huge....and terrible. I'm a more than excited to get a puck mover. Could he make our league best pp even better?

I think in Murray's office, the D depth chart last year was supposed to look like this:
Risto
Kulikov
Bogosian
McCabe
Franson
Gorges
Falk/Fedun

Instead, we got:
Risto
McCabe
Franson
Bogosian
Gorges
Falk
Kulikov/Fedun

And every one of those guys except Falk underperformed for where he was slotted.

I'd like to see in the fall:
Risto
Acquisition who can play the role Kulikov was supposed to
McCabe
Bogosian
Antipin
Steady cheap free agent vet
Falk/Guhle

Basically, 2-6 are all question marks, but really can they be worse than what they are replacing?

Probably not, but maybe he can improve one of the leagues worst EV scoring teams.

 

Besides better defense, thats another area they need to improve in is scoring 5v5.

Phil Housley would help with this.

Paul Hamilton... posted a video reportedly showing Victor Antipin at Harbor Center skating and working with another group of players. Seems like the Sabres are trickling back into town.

Did I ever tell you I played hockey in college, and have sister who is a better athlete than me?
Oh, and I also have a really big head.

Totally. I bet the poor guy had at least 5-6 strangers come up to him asking for help with his bags.

Paul the Hamburgular Hamilton interviewed Anitpin the other day.

New Buffalo Sabres defenseman Victor Antipin left Russia about two weeks ago to come to Buffalo and start to get used to his new team and new city. Antipin said he likes it around Western New York because it reminds him of home, “I like Buffalo, it’s a small city, a comfortable city for me.”

 


about 2 weeks ago, matches pretty closely with the August 12th sighting of V Antipin. I am betting that was him.

My coffee is just starting to kick in and I really don't mean to be nit-picky but do you mean "sighting"
