I haven’t felt compelled to post much of anything this preseason, as you may have noticed. A touch of snark at the Leafs here, a bit of whimsy about Shanny’s player discipline for head-hunting there. Beyond that though, nada. I think there’s a good reason…I’m satisfied. For the first time in a while, I so like what the team has done in the offseason I don’t feel the need to do a bunch of research, or scour Behind The Net’s advanced stats, to try and show you why Buffalo should be better this year than last. The moves stand on their own. They took a playoff team from last year, lost only a few players, replaced them with guys who are most likely quite a bit better. Jhonas Enroth looks primed to be the solid backup goalie that we’ve waited years for, and Miller has been sharp early as well.
I guess what I’m saying is, I need the season to start to find something to complain about, or praise highly. I’m content. Once the games start, I can champion someone’s cause for the Calder again, or show video of why Ehrhoff is an important player for the Sabres. Let’s resolve to make this the best blogging and tweeting year for Sabres fans ever. The season begins, and I’m ready.
