The Buffalo Sabres' season is right around the corner and crews are working around the clock to get the new Sabres' locker room ready for the home opener on October 14th against the Carolina Hurricanes.
In the past month, the Sabres have been making national headlines for signings and trades including the acquisitions of highly regarded players Robyn Regehr and Christian Ehrhoff. Yesterday, Buffalo locked up one of their promising young defenseman to a four year, eleven million dollar contract that will keep Andrej Sekera a Sabre until the 2015-2016 season.
The Buffalo Sabres traded a fourth round pick to the New York Islanders for negotiation rights to free agent defenseman Christian Ehrhoff, and unlike the Islanders (and Vancouver for that matter) the Sabres brass were able to get the deal done. Another sign that it's a new era for the Buffalo Sabres, and free agent players like what they see.
While the much rumored trade for Flames defenseman Robyn Regher dominated talk of the Sabres Draft, don't discount Terry Pegula and Ted Black's first round draft pick Joel Armia of Finland. He's been compared to Teemu Selanne and Mikhail Samuelsson and was a potential Top 10 prospect who fell into the Sabres lap at 16.
It wasn't even close. The Buffalo Sabres folded when it meant the most, losing Game Seven 5-2 and adding a 40th year of heartbreak for the fans. You might say this series actually ended Sunday when the Sabres gave up two, two goal leads in Game Six. It had to be hard to have any confidence that you could beat the Flyers after leaving it all on the ice Easter Sunday and still losing.
Jason Pominville's First Period goal was all the Sabres needed to beat the Philadelphia Flyers and tie the Series at Two. That's because Ryan Miller was perfect again, stopping 32 shots and weathering the best Philadelphia could muster...
The tension in JJ's, the bar attached to Casa Di Pizza on Elmwood, was so thick through 40 minutes you could feel it. A roomful of people were on the edge, shrieking, gasping, cringing at every turnover, save, hit
