  1. I'll be there on Sunday night; my son is skating with his National Grid co-workers. I believe he is the only one from National Grid coming in from Syracuse. It is a very cool event.
  2. My wife's PET and CAT scan and biopsy came back negative and the oncologist told us yesterday that there is no sign of the Lymphoma. That, my friends - is Freaking Awesome!!!
  3. Sabres win the draft lottery and call up Vancouver and offer it for Bo Horvat and their 1st round pick. We get our 2nd line center (and still don't lose the first round pick) who has already played in the league and they get their Sedins 2.0. Two questions: 1.) Would you do it if you were the Sabres? 2.) Would you do it if you were the Canucks?
  4. Thank you for your prayers! We appreciate them and know they help! Thank you! I hope and pray it does too! Hope she's well enough -- we meeting our family at the Pens-Sabres game on Thursday too.
  5. Today is the last Friday before my wife's last chemo treatment on Tuesday!
  6. I'm ok with that. I'd rather have a kid that's been in the league for a few years than a draft pick that I have to wait for.
  7. A name I've heard as being available a couple times is Jonathan Huberdeau. Any thoughts on what we'd have to offer to get him? Does a 1st round pick and one of our higher rated prospects get it done? Florida was rumored to make a run for Bob and the Breadman and would need the 6 mil that JH is making.
  8. I like Bogo's game and liked when I saw him play with Scandella. Which stat site or service do folks use to get the data to prove or disprove how good they played together?
  9. He needs a double digit like #24 or #27
  10. Speaking of numbers...…. does anyone know why Mittlestadt wears #37? Was it a Rip Special or did he chose it?
  11. I believe he wore 9 for his one season in college.
  12. Ivan thinks the Sabres should attempt to trade for another Swedish defenseman who can help mentor Rasmus Dahlin transition into the NHL. Jonas Brodin would be my first pick; Lyle Richardson wrote a piece where he mentions that the Wild might have to make some tough choices this off season; yes, I know it's on the internet but it's all I have to go on. I don't know if the Wild would deal with us after the Foligno and Ennis trade but maybe a package starting with Hudson Fasching, a Minnesota boy, would entice them.
  13. I believe that our core needs to be changed. I chose Risto because I think he is the player that our HC and GM are talking about when they refer to players not listening to what they're being told. I also chose ROR because of the comments that he made at the end of the year. Losing has a way of really working on the psyche of a player. I think these two players would bring us 2 things that are vital to moving forward: a change in the locker room and new players that would be acquired via trades.
  14. Ivan's Plan: 1.) Trade ROR for a defenseman like a Hanifan (frees up money) 2.) Trade Risto for a you forward who can skate and has a winner's pedigree 3.) Try to move Okopso & Bogo to free up money 4.) Go hard after Tavares 5.) Try to trade Nylander for Julovei ( both seem to need a change I scenery) ​Na Zdrowie!!!
