Who do you think scores our first goal of the season?

I left out Gerbe and McCormick because both are injured. Left out Pardy and Brennan too, assuming both aren't in Buffalo.

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.

5 minutes into the philly game, ennis makes a slick pass to stafford who uncorks a one timer that hits bryzgalov and squeeks through him into the crease, foligno crashes the net and shovels it home

I picked Stafford, although I think Leino is also very realistic. He scored against the Flyers at least twice last year in four games.

And both were the Sabres first goals in those games IIRC.

Own goal off Leopold's skate. 1-0, Flyers.

I'll say Hodgson on the PP.
