There are many things that have to fall into place if the Sabres are to contend.

Many feel Shea Weber is the best defenseman in the league and Tyler Myers used the off season to spend some time with him, “Definitely, with my size I think I can start punishing guys more in the defensive zone.

25) What should the Sabres 2nd line be? Stafford-Ennis-Foligno
This was the Sabres best line down the stretch last year. It is a jack of all trades kind of line. There's the physicality of Foligino, the playmaking ability of Ennis, and the size and skill of Stafford.

It is an honor to be joined by you once again for our riveting conversations. First off, I want a damn mailbag or I'll be firing you. I need to get hits so I can get paid my $2 from Google ads in order to buy a 40 to watch this crap sandwich you call a hockey team. Anyways, how have you spent your time during the lockout?
