Back Again

by Anne

Just when I gave up- have you SEEN this team the last 2 games? WHAT? WHO ARE THEY?

I can't stay enough positives about our young defensemen, I mean, for real, these boys saw a big task ahead of them and they came to play for keeps. Any worries I had about the future of our defensive corps was erased by these last 2 games. I mean, they still have a LOT to learn, but those 3 kids (ha, they're all less than 1 year younger than me) really stepped up. Not to mention excellent play from our top players.

Any one who doubts Lindy Ruff can go fly a kite. These lines, at least for the last 2 games were fantastic. Keep it up and see what happens.

Danny Paille! Benched and, what's that? 5 goals in 3 games? HECK YES.

Goose, Pommer and Yo-yo are a really really great line. As sad as I am to see Staffy on the 4th line, Mair Kaleta and Staffy were a great line. I think Mairsy is a great leader, especially for these 2 guys. Woo!


13 goals in 2 games? HA! Yay!


  1. They're all less than 1 year younger than me

    I'm guilty of calling the team kids, too. I think its just an effect of hearing repeatedly in the media that these guys are such a young team. But my birthday falls between Goose's and Timmy's, which seems like the dividing line between the oldsters and the young ins on the team.

    And how is Kalinin only 27? He seems like he should be 45 or something. Is it the square head, or just the fact that he's been around for forever and a day.

  2. haha Amy I always think Kalinin is old too..

    I am older than 9 of the regulars and probably any kid they bring up for Rochester..

    I love this new Sabres team.. where did they come from and CAN WE KEEP 'EM?!!!

  3. Amy - I feel the same way about Afinogenov, like, why aren't you at like 38 by now? Haven't you been a Sabre for most of my life?
