Is Kahun still hurt? Last I checked he was out for Pittsburgh I believe

I am surprised there is no champagne being popped in this thread.

Simmonds number confirms Sobotka will never play for the Sabres again.

It's gotta feel pretty exciting to have two new guys coming in at this point of the season.

Absolutely. I hope this group is ready for it.

I was wondering what felt weird about him taking 17. 

Yeah.  Last night was trying to recall wtf was wearing 17 this year and drew a blank.  Tried to just remove him from the memory altogether apparently.

Somebody either here or on twitter had made a comment like "I wonder what he'll be wearing." I said to myself "oh yeah, the Sabres probably retired 17" because I know the retired numbers have a lot of teens in them, and I didn't think that closely about it after. 

Then today, I saw his 17, and was like "oh, I guess nobody has really worn it since maybe Gragnani or something" 

Sorry Vlad! It's been a lot of months.

OK, so I'm looking forward to seeing Skinner-MJo-Simmonds.

Wild that Simmonds is the best winger that line has had all season.

I thought this was hyperbole until I looked it up and yikes

One thing I hadn't thought about - Sobotka's number isn't 17, it's 71, he just had to use 17 here because of Rodrigues. Now that Rodrigues is gone, Sobotka will almost certainly wear 71 if he is back before the end of the season.

Jeff Skinner has not been a worse hockey player than Wayne Simmonds this year

Barely.

Like, do an honest side-by-side comparison of Skinner and Simmonds this season. Simmonds CF% and CFrel are a little worse, but he's got essentially the same shot totals, the same shooting percentage, nearly identical goals and assists through a handful more games. And Simmonds was doing it all on a worse team playing fewer minutes per game.

I'd love to see some heat maps but I bet his shots are actually coming from more dangerous areas than Jeff's too, just by virtue of how he plays the game.

Obviously Skinner is a more talented player, but it's really hard to argue that he's contributing a whole lot more than Wayne Simmonds this season.
