Came in thread to explain, knowing there'd be random baseless hate. Saw this. Leaving.

Teams heading off to Europe will have to be ready before other teams staying back in North America, I don't get some of you. And it's not like if Buffalo asked for this game against us

The fact that he used to word "classless" leads me to believe that it was meant as sarcasm. At least I hope so

Yeah, it's not really a big deal.

These guys have nothing to lose. If they lose, they weren't expected to win anyway, and if they win, they look even better.

But it's PRESEASON. In the immortal words of Carey Price: chill out! Who cares of Fred St-Denis can't score on Ryan Miller?

People over here making it like it's a bad thing. Of course it's not. For the entire organization, it's the best to precisely evaluate each of their prospects by sending them against a real NHL team.

Sadly there is indeed random baseless hate, but one poster doesn't speak for the board, or even a sizeable chunk of it. The simple fact is the Sabres are icing a notably more complete lineup than is normal at this stage of pre-season. It's going to get noticed and folks are going to rag about it. That's what team boards are about. Don't let one or two posts drive you away. And actually, now that notice who the poster is, I think the "classless org" thing was pretty clearly sarcasm.

Well, this should be interesting. The kids are going to be tested tonight or the Sabres will take one look at our line-up, say who the **** are these guys and mail it in. lol

I know they are going to Europe, but that's still a ridiculous line-up to be playing right now. They still have N.A. exhibition games to play before heading over including a game tomorrow night against the Leafs. Who wants to bet that tomorrow night's line-up is compiled quite differently?

Why bother to post? You came expecting hate, found it and posted.

You're one of those guys that rubber necks a crash and talks about how horrible it was. Sicko Voyeur is what you are son!

Preseaon is getting in shape and getting some timing. It's a brief audition for a few players for possibly one open forward position. As the song goes wake me up when September ends.
Will do. You're aware there is still a pre-season game on the 1st of October, right?

Nah. I mixed up thoughts with words =P

I wanted to say I came in expecting ragging, which I did, and which there was. I found random baseless hate (that may or may not now actually have been sarcasm) and left.

Either way, I don't really care. My panties aren't bunched. There's no real bad blood between Sabres and Habs fans, so it's mostly just a "boys will be boys" thing, but replace "boys" with "habs fans"

Cheers, and good game. I look at it the same way a few of you are. Lose, and it's expected. Win and it's fkn awesome. Embarrassing as fk for us, but awesome for you

At a combined height of 202 inches, I think there's something in the NHL rulebook that would allow the Habs to play another forward on that line...

You know what..I don't think they're gunna pound us at all. The Sabre's aren't known for they're brilliatn offence. They are a boring defensive system team, and have been that way for as long as I can remember. let's counter that with high octane speed and offense. Patches, Gio, Desharnais, gallager, PK SUBBAN, beaulieu. let's ****ing rock their world!!!!

Agreed. And Blunden may get called up when need be as well to play on the 4th line.

This isn't nearly what some of you are making it out to be
The amount of non-NHLers your team is icing equates to the amount of NHLers our team is icing pretty much. What about that isn't a big difference?

Pretty much.

We're missing Markov, Gill, Yemelin, Weber, Gomez, Cammalleri, Plekanec, Cole, Kostitsyn, Price. That's probably 2 top-4 d-men, our top line, our 2nd line center, our starting goalie, and a top-6 forward on our team (even though he'll play on our 3rd line).

They're missing Leopold. Big deal.

Preseason, results are meaningless...no biggie, as stated the Sabres are heading for Europe, and don't have alot of time to evaluate their young guys....so they are looking to get their guff in order now...I think both the Habs and Sabres are going to give Boston a real run for the division this year!
