Jeanneret had already planned to do more games than last year, but the release of the schedule last week made him decide to go all in. The Sabres are playing on back-to-back nights a franchise-low 11 times, so the city-to-city grind won't be as arduous.
"I thought about it for quite awhile," Jeanneret said by phone. "When I looked at it, I thought maybe this year I'll just take out the West Coast and I'll do all the rest of them.
And then when I started to put everything together, I said, 'What the heck. In for a penny, in for a pound.' I'm going to be here, I may as well do them all
"There are other things, too, that came into play. I've been feeling pretty good. I'm going to miss the trips to Florida, but I'm not going to miss sitting around the house not doing any games, which happened on a couple of occasions.
"The other thing that impacts it is I think we're going to be pretty darn good this year. I really do. I thought there was some promise last year, and with the maturation of the team alone it should be better.
I know they're going to do something else before the free agency period has totally passed by. I'm looking forward to that as well
. That of course, as you well know, makes the season a lot shorter when things are going well."
Optimistic speculation from RJ or fact based on something Black promised the Sabres would do?
Inquiring minds want to know....
