OK, I know I’ve written like one positive Sabres post..I think I liked the Grier signing..but I’m trying not to make this blog as negative as possible. I think my Bills posts are fair. Some positive, some negative. But it’s time to give the Sabres some more love. I’ll be honest, I’m a football guy and I really don’t take an interest in the Sabres until January. Now if their on TV of course I’ll watch them. And I will be getting center Ice because I do have a new 46 inch flat screen tv.
But I do feel after watching the team for over 20 years, I’ll be able to give a good opinion and some cool stats you never thought of.
But I feel in order for me to give some love to the Sabres or to at least get into them, I have to write about the team itself, and not so much about my disdain towards WGR/Sabres, Mr. Mulligan/Mr Seles/ and Tinny Tim. Don’t worry I will revisit that again at some point.
So I’m going to start doing my preview for the team. The way I look at the Sabres is they have two teams. They have the old guard and the new guard. The old guard consists of the players who were around the glory days of 2005-2007. The New guard are the kids who are making their way from Portland or have only been on the team for a couple of years.
The way I’m going to do my preview section is by New Guard and Old Guard positions (example, Sabres Defenseman: New Guard, Sabres forwards: Old guard) You get the point. So stay tune.
