By far, it is the one thing for which fans who have gone through a solemn season like this one, can hold to in anticipation. There's always next season, right? It's crazy that the next time we see the Sabres play a meaningful game will be in October. Eh.
Of course, in our day and age of sports coverage and fandom, there are always two sides to the story and you must stick to one side while ridiculing and destroying the other. Brandon has a post up about reasons to be optimistic about the Sabres and that's fine and dandy, but it's my turn to destroy your optimistic prism of fanhood. This is a piece that will inspire you to call into the Whiner Line and make Sabres apologists block you on Twitter. A piece that will get me banned from the Sabres press box and get me unfollowed by Heather B-Funk. (Editor's note: Hmmmmm. -HB)
Here are a few stats to make you squirm a bit:
The Sabres missed the playoffs for the 12th time in franchise history. Hal...

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo Sabres president Ted Black says the team is already looking ahead on how to rebound from this year’s disappointing finish. And he adds those plans include moving forward with both general manager Darcy Regier and coach Lindy Ruff.

The disappointing 2011-2012 season has only been over for a little under a week, but I feel that the time is right to begin looking at what the roster may look like next season.
For this post I’m going to focus solely on the defense.
Last season the defense, for the most part, wasn’t that good. Hell, they were actually down right terrible for a large chunk of the season.
Buffalo Sabres head coach Lindy Ruff turned down an offer to coach Team Canada at the upcoming World Hockey Championship.

I'm borrowing this post form the fine folks at Dear God, Why us? Sports. Be sure to check out their awesome website which is dedicated to snark, the Bills, the Sabres and the greatest invention in the history of the world...Cuss words. You can also follow them on Twitter.

Buffalo Sabres head coach Lindy Ruff has declined an invitation to coach Team Canada at the Men's World Hockey Championship tourney.
Nathan Gerbe has signed on the dotted line and will play for Team USA at the Worlds.
Perhaps Ruff's recent brush with broken ribs has played a factor in his decision. Ruff and Darcy Regier have yet to conduct their season-ending press...
Watching last nightâs Bruins-Caps on ice rodeo, I couldnât help but think of the Sabresâ Patrick Kaleta. The robust Buffalo winger and Chief S.Disturber would be thriving in such a series! Car crashes all over the ice. Bodies strewn about the joint. Bent, contorted, and twisted. Opponents limping to their bench, writhing in pain. One keyed in on Ovechkin being targeted...
