Welcome Aboard, Brad Boyes

by Anne

I hadn't planned on writing a "Welcome to Buffalo" post until after the deadline tomorrow, but seeing has how the Sabres have BLOWN THE LID off of the NHL late Sunday night, I feel compelled to welcome current newest Sabre, Bradley Boyes, to town.

Some pertinent facts on Bradd-o:

Full name: Bradley Keith Boyes

Born: April 17, 1982

Drafted: 24th overall in 2000 by the Toronto Maple Leafs

His goal scoring is... inconsistent. He scored 43 goals once. Just once. He seems to be more in the Pominville-esque 25 goal range.

He's a center.

He's from Mississauga.

Why, hello there.

WAIT. Is he a center like, filling in for Derek Roy or like replacing Tim Connolly after we trade him tomorrow? I hope it's the latter.

Remember two years ago when we all were like "CONNOLLY IS OOOOUUUUTTA HEEEERE!" and instead Darcy signed him to a new contract?

Here's hoping for there to be a new newest Sabre sometime tomorrow. :D

  1. Whoa! I just got home from work, scrolled through my "hockey" reader and this is the first thing I saw! I'm excited - he might be inconsistent, but he's certainly capable and hopefully he can click with a couple of our wingers. I've given up on losing Connolly (then if it actually happens it can be a pleasant surprise), but I wouldn't be surprised at all if he replaces Hecht or Niedermayer. He's at a good age and I think he's got a year or two left on his contract, so it sounds like they're hoping he's more of a keeper than a rental. Plus, a second-round pick is not nothing... (And an aside to the Hockey Fairy - All I want for my birthday is Rob Nidermayer on waivers.)
