When I was younger the NHL trade deadline was one special day. I’d lay awake the night before anticipating every move I could see the Sabres making. I’d wake up the next morning all excited, run to my computer & spend every waking moment refreshing all of the blogs I followed while blaring WGR. I remember learning that the Sabres acquired Dainius Zubrus from the Capitals...

Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers has been given a three-game suspension by the NHL's Department of Player Safety for this dirty hit on Devils forward Dainius Zubrus. I think this suspension is about right. Myers is also a repeat offender.

Now, Myers will have a week to reconsider after being suspended three games without pay by the NHL on Monday.
Following a hearing by phone with Myers, the league's department of player...
