How the hell did Sather/Torts think losing Prust, Dubinsky, Anisimov, and Fedotenko wouldn't hurt this team at all? You think Ott could have at least been a replacement-type signing for Prust...nope. We got Asham. ****ing Sather.

In due time, this past summer could sadly go down as the straw that broke the camel's (Lundqvist's) back. Truly hope for his sake more than anyone's that we didn't already **** it up for good.
He was acquired via trade, not signed as a free agent.

I'll tell you one thing: if the Sabres are serious about a culture change, the man will be locked up and given a letter on his chest. He plays hard, can fit on any line in any role, hits everything that moves, plays PP and PK, and is very, very, very well liked in the room.

WHEN we blow it up, he stays, unless someone overpays massively. He is everything the organization has been looking for for ten plus years. He and Hodgson have been bright spots in a dark, dark year.
