No idea how it isn't sold out yet, considering there are only around 10k or so tickets left for the entire season.

The game is sold out.

Edit: I stand corrected.... That's weird I thought they said it was sold out before tickets became available to the public.

A nice season opener GDT Woodhouse




Sabres win 3-1

Hodgson, Ennis, or Myers with a goal

It's likely seats unused by the sabres/flyers allotment

3-2 Sabres in regulation.

Vanek with game winner.

Grigorenko Prediction: 1 assist, +1, 14:57 ToI.

If Leino can't go and Ellis has to dress I hope they let Ellis center the 4th line and move Hecht to the LW on Grigorenkos line instead of plugging Ellis in that spot.

Is there a season opener GDT for last season?

I'm super curious to see how different the lineup looks. My guess is very.

They could win thirty.
They could miss the playoffs too.

ask and you shall receive


Vanek Adam Pominville
Gerbe Roy Stafford
Ennis Leino Boyes
McCormick Gaustad Kaleta

Regehr Myers
Leopold Ehrhoff
Gragnani Sekera

Hecht was on the IR and most people assumed he would take Adam's spot when get got healthy.
Weber was a healthy scratch and I'm assuming the other scratch was Ellis.

yeah, we've changed a couple of things at forward. Even with the injuries I think our top 3 lines are better. Only place I think we're worse is 4th line center
