The way things are going, this season’s “Top 10 GIFs” is going to be pretty darn sweet.
Today’s edition comes off the heels of the Sabres 5-1 drubbing/coach-killing of the Washington Capitals. With Buffalo forced to put 9 rookies on the ice, one of them was bound to do something to grab our attention. In this case, Brayden McNabb got Jason Chimera’s full attention.
Let’s zoom in on the aftermath:
To turn a phrase upside-down: welcome to the NHL, Chimera.
Gotta’ love it – and you also gotta’ love the way Buffalo’s defense is shaping up for the future. With Tyler Myers at 6-8, McNabb at 6-5, and the newly-signed shutdown man Joe Finley at 6-8, the Buffalo Blueline is going to become the stuff of nightmares for opposing forwards. Oh, and the Sabres still have the otherwise diminutive hitting machines Robyn Regehr (6-3) and Mike Weber (6-2).
The guy who picks the Carubba Collision is going to be pretty dang busy in the near future.
