I Love Hecht and I'm Not Jochen

Somewhere along the way, it seems like a lot of us decided that every single thing that the Sabres do - heck, everything that everyone in the NHL does - has some deep, resounding meaning.  Every decision is a referendum on Sabres management, usually what's wrong with them.  Maybe all fan bases are like that, but I don't know, it seems like we might be a little worse. ...
