Nice poll question - was going to suggest this poll or make it myself.
No love for Grigs? or did you just run out of room and wanted to make sure theres a space for "Other" just in people wanted to predict that Gerbe/McCormick/Brennan/Pardy or someone else - scores the first goal? Or do you think hes not even going to get a tryout?
Speaking of predicting scoring goals (or assists even) - hopefully the Sabres Survivor Contest returns - it made the games more fun to watch last season. Especially during that losing road trip in January - hoping your Sabre player scored or got an assist so you could advance to the next game or perhaps even win that round. Of course, I hope we have none of those stretches this season and that every game is an exciting one and ends with a Sabres win!
16 votes so far and none for Vanek. I like that John Scott has a vote though.
I didn't pick Vanek just because it was too obvious to go with our best pure goal scorer. I have a strong feeling that Ennis is going to sprint out of the gate this year, even if the elevated responsibility/difficulty of match-ups might catch up after a few weeks. Stafford's the chosen beneficiary in this scenario.
Here's to hoping Vanek-Pommers have the same kind of start they did last year as well.
