Darcy Did Something!July 7, 2010
The Sabres today announce that they’ve signed Rob Niedermayer to a one year deal. The Sabres sign Nieder, I create a blog post featuring an Animal House video. It’s a win-win situation, really. The Sabres get some grit, determination and a player with a Cup ring, and I get inspiration for a blog post.
Animal House is one of my favorite movies, in case you were wondering.
And to make the day a lot better, the Sabres announced that Patty Lalime has been signed to a one year deal. Was there much of a doubt as to whether this would happen? Enroth’s not ready for the big show quite yet, and Lalime keeps Miller loose and relaxed. Miller doesn’t need “keeping rookie backup goalie sane” added to the things that he carries on his shoulders. Now the task is just getting Lindy to do something completely insane and play his backup goalie on a slightly more regular schedule. This only playing the backup on the second Tuesday of next week when the moon is in the 7th house won’t cut it anymore.
And since Niedermayer got a video, it’s only fair that Lalime get one. Lalime’s video is really more of a Ryan Miller video, but it contains Miller’s quite adorkable impression of his goalie partner.
