because rooting for them to lose, is rooting for them to win
Yep, just like how I will root for the Bills to lose out once they are eliminated from having any hopes of playoffs. I was certainly cheering for the Jets to win the last game of the season against us.
It's been typical of both Buffalo teams for the past while now to not be good enough to be a contender, and not be bad enough to get a top pick - and then we are just stuck being completely mediocre since neither teams have smart front offices to make up for it.
I suspect that we'll see Vanek and/or Foligno double shift onto that line in Scott's place for a good portion of the game.
Probably cant double up on Vaneks icetime. I would hazard a guess that he is still a bit dinged up. I like Grigs progress lately so I would like to see them rotate someone with a bit of offensive acumen on his line and keep him working on being more confident.
I think, while he has other problems to work on, Grigs confidence is his biggest hurdle at the moment. He seems tentative with and without the puck. He waits for the play to come to him rather than initiate. Lately he has started to be more active and aggressive. I hope that trend continues. Need to remember that he is uber-talented.
