Whatever. We’re all going to Hecht.

Or something like that.

Zen power (see below).

Hey, so the Sabres decided to solve their inexperienced center/crappy top PK unit probs with bringing back the same guy who possibly hallucinated himself and his Sabres all the way to the Stanley Cup last season.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

Repeat.

This is a good signing. Right?

That’s the hope.

This is a bad signing?

Wrong.

It’s a terrible signing?

Wrong.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

Obscenities and mediocrity! Fire people and tweet the Pegula daughters that we want Malkin! Nothing else! Malkin(s)!

Breathe, dammit!

You people have no Zen power. Hecht instantly IMPROVES the Sabres. Who did you want? A 38 year old Arnnott, for 48 games, who’d have to spend time learning Lindy Ruff’s “system” and possibly costing us a game in the process? An 18-27 year old (depending on which birther you talk to) Grigorenko centering a third line* with a pair of scrubs designed for puck control schemes only? This team and its youngsters need solid veteran competition.

Heck, Hecht is the perfect guy for the 3rd and 4th line. Like it, or not: he’s consummately consistent, defensively sound, knows “the system,” and really, really, really is passionate about playing this season. (For certain: it is his last.)

So why not embrace him?

I’m not going to play the Euro card. I’m not going to play the Euro card. I’m not going to play the Euro card.

Not enough palms for my face.

Also, Euro card: played.

Hecht is a damn fine defensive forward, who possesses the offensive talent to produce goals from the 3rd and 4th line, or even when short-handed. Captain Pommers said he looks great, when he played alongside him in the DEL lockout penitentiary. Pommers is our captain. He’s earned it. He’s as consistent on the ice as… well, Hecht. More talented for sure, but this team must have consistent players like these for a short 48 game playoff push.

All I can say is “Welcome back” to our once again longest tenured Sabre. The only beef I have with him is that my wife thinks his eyes are “deep pools of mystery.” Thankfully, she also thinks his face is all “weirded up like a mosquito.”

Euro-hate.

Fan-lust.

Fan-ire.

No, fan HATE. Is this really a thing?

As in the title:

We’re all going to Hecht.

Let’s hope there’s a shiny Cup at the end of the journey. And please, Hockey Gods: protect his head. I do fear for him in this way.

#ProtectTheLid

Go Sabres.

*Yea sorry. Grigs and Girgs are not guaranteed roster spots in a 48 game season. Welcome to the playoffs, already.
