This draft could be fun. As in we all get really angry and throw stuff at the TV.

Or not – we can all keep talking about MacKinnon and Drouin. ENDLESSLY.

We already know what the MSM and bloggers think about Enroth’s ability to take over the starting role between the pipes in what could soon be a post-Ryan Miller era. He’s earned a shot.

We need to be OK with this.

WE CAN’T GET PAST THE FIRST ROUND.

WE CAN’T GET PAST THE FIRST ROUND.

WE CAN’T GET PAST THE FIRST ROUND.

(Repeat ten times, in total. Or maybe eleven. Depends on your Sabres calandar.)

WE WILL NEVER GET PAST THE FIRST ROUND.

WE ARE CURSED.

THE JIM LORENTZ BAT CURSE.

TRADING DANNY GARE CURSE.

DRAFTING SEILING INSTEAD OF BOSSY CURSE.

TRADING MIKE FOLIGNO CURSE.

TRADING ALL THOSE GUYS CURSE (seriously, Lindy to the Rags for a 2nd that became Smehlik? That’s HERESY).

#BEACUASEITSBUFFALO CURSE.

Sound familiar? It should. Losing hockey teams have a lot in common: key players go to better rinks, and so the fans evoke the good ol’ Hockey Gods, and all the ridiculous curses. Oh wait, I forgot one:

EVERY TIME I WATCH/ATTEND/THINK TANGENTIALLY ABOUT A GAME, WE LOSE.

Sabres hockey 300x195 We need to be OK with this.

Yet we watch. No matter how murderous the play on ice becomes… we watch. Do they have therapists for cities, because daaaamn we need one.

To spare your eyes, I’ll take the all caps off for the rest of this post.

Oh, and it gets much more optimistic. Think you can handle that?

It’s going to be a gruesome slaughter.

Boom 300x300 On Eve of NFL Draft, Mocksters Preparing for Gruesome Slaughter

BOOM: the sound you will hear as every mock draft implodes after the first trade on actual draft day. Hey look, even the explosion is mocking this whole process.

“I’ve been sweating over other mock drafts for the past couple weeks,” said the Guy at the Office today. “But I’ve got an angle. I put in trades. Also, I put in 2-5 ‘alternatives’ for each pick, so I’m pretty confident that I’ll have real success tomorrow.”
