Go Fog Devils go!
No more Fog Devils though. It's been transferred to......Montreal, so you'll have to cheer for us....

Pretty sad to see that Allard won't be there anymore. I had wished to see him live. Really like him as a player.

“I spoke to Buffalo a few times throughout the season and I always knew they were pretty interested,” said Adam.
“Coming up to that pick, I didn’t want to say anything and jinx myself, but I kind of said to myself, ‘This could be it right here.’”
It was. The Sabres announced Adam’s name, fulfilling his mini premonition.
“So it wasn’t a huge, huge surprise, but even when they did actually pick me, it took a little while to kick in. It’s hard to describe the feeling, but I can easily say it was the biggest moment of my life,” he said.
Adam was pleased and so were the Sabres.
“After I got picked, we had to take photos and do some other stuff and then the Sabres invited me and my family up to the suite they had and we saw the rest of the draft from there,” said Adam.
“After it was finished, all the Sabres’ people came to meet us and they seemed to be pretty happy and excited.”
So they might have been. Well-known hockey analyst Bob McKenzie, working for the NHL Network’s online coverage Saturday from Ottawa, commented on the number of NHL stars who had been taken in the second rounds of previous drafts and then made particular note of Adam, saying that of all the 31 players taken in Saturday’s second round, he might be the one most worth watching.

And it won’t be long before Adam begins to get a good read on the Sabres’ organization. On Tuesday, he’ll be in Buffalo to take part in the Sabres’ week-long summer prospects camp.
“I was talking to both T.J. and J.S., and they will be there,” said Adam. “In all, there will be about 40 guys taking part.”
That number will also include two other QMJHL players selected by the Sabres on Saturday — P.E.I. Rocket defenceman Jordan Southorn and Chicoutimi Sagueneens’ forward Jacob Lagace.
“This will be a lot better than not knowing anyone, having two guys I know and a couple of other familiar faces,” said Adam. “But even if none of them were there and I didn’t know a single person (in the Sabres’ organization), I don’t think I’d be any less excited.”

Nice little interview with Adam here.

Of note to Takeo:

Quote:
TGR: What do you think of the Sabres’ logo? Do you prefer the old school crest with the crossed swords?

Luke: I actually like the logo and I think it is one of the nicer jerseys in the league.

Unless you score a cup winning goal for the Sabres down the road.

As a fellow Newfie, this is the best pick of the draft for the Sabres. Adam rocks and once he makes the roster, the Cup is ours.

If Cleary can get a Cup, so can Adam.

I can't think of a better pick to add at #44.
He's the perfect center for a team loaded with highly skilled wingers. Just another feather in the cap for Darcy, his drafting and development of young players is the best!

Hahah wow, sure does look dumb a few years down the road. I remember I didn't think Myers would amount to anything and man oh man am I glad to be so wrong!

I do remember that I had Ennis ranked borderline top 10 that year and was so pumped when they got him at 26, even though most people thought that was a little early for him.

this bump helped me relive my favorite hockey memory... meeting Luke before the draft and telling him I wanted him to be drafted by the Sabres..... he's really surprised me this season.
