Simple ThoughtsApril 22, 2008
– I know some of you have boycotted the Buffalo News because of things their writers have/have not said. I urge you to rescind your boycott for at least this one Jerry Sullivan column. Sullivan completely hits the nail on the head about why playoff hockey in Buffalo is so great, and what we’re missing out on by not having the Sabres in the playoffs. Its a good read, even though most of us are having fun with the current playoff matchups, and are in agreement that missing the playoffs is good for the guys in the long run.
I miss the Sabres flags popping up on cars, like flowers blooming in spring.
I miss playoff beards.
I miss Lindy Ruff talking about his guys needing to play “out of character.”
I miss Ruff talking, period.
I miss Ryan Miller standing at his locker, full of earnest intensity, trying to say all the right things.
– Speaking of earnest Miller, he was named to the league’s competition committee yesterday, along with former teammate Brian Campbell. I really, really hope Miller does say something (or has said something) to the Soupster about Soupy’s comments regarding the Buffalo locker room. If you’re still allegedly tight with those guys, you don’t diss them and how they play the game and step up. Soupy’s trying to have his cake and eat it too.
– After reading this article, is anyone else afraid what will happen if Montreal wins the Cup? Will the city still be standing?
