The Sabres have had discussions with the Avalanche to obtain the 1st overall pick.
But you know that already ( #HockeyIQ).
You also know that it’s going to take a lot to make this happen. So is it worth it? Here’s 5 reasons for, and 5 reasons against the Big Deal.
PICTURED: Well dressed intern hard at work sorting through all the trade offers flooding Denver right now.
June 30th is not that far off.
Since we have 25 more days to wonder about who the Sabres will trade/select on draft day, here’s 5 fun new things you should be thinking about.
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.
1. Seth Jones
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.
Time to get him on the ice?
But what about his peers?
Here’s what Linus Ullmark (Sabres netminding prospect) had to say for Svenskafans.com:
Somebody asked me yesterday if I am dreading the next Sabres season.
I get it: losing isn’t fun. Plus, we just endured a season with a lockout, arguments about the quiet crowd at the FNC, arguments about booing, and so much more weird stuff (OTT LICKED A GUY) that I don’t have the time or the patience to list them all. I just want to forget them.
I want to move on.
In a way, we are doing that already.
Arguing about booing? I’m so done with this. Let’s go get a burger, dude.
The Sabres removed the interim stamp from Ron Rolston’s head coaching position today. For fans, it kinda feels like the same old Sabres train just keeps chugging along. We had Lindy Ruff for 16 years, so why expect any outside-the-box/arena thinking on the hiring of a coach for the rebuild?
The lights just keep on flashing. Mine as well put the car in park, and turn it off.
