I don't know about you but I am looking forward to this little Sabres West Coast Swing. Yeah the morning is going to be tough but those are the breaks, especially if you are a vocal proponent of everybody playing everybody else at least once a season, which of course is exactly how it's supposed to be. And I guess in a year or two (or maybe less, I don't know) we'll get home and aways against everybody outside of our division (plus our division matchups, which never should have been cheapened by overplay), which will be a lot of fun, and just like how they do the soccer everywhere else but the US. Every game has meaning when you play everybody else in the league twice (no division rivalries though), and it will be neat to see that in the NHL.
Anyway let's break out those Red Bulls and watch the Sabres against the damned Ducks.
