YES and YES

6) Will Tim Connolly be a Sabre at seasonís end?

7) Will Chris Butler be traded?

NO

8) Will at least one of Craig Rivet, Rob Niedermayer or Mike Grier be traded? If so, which?

9) On what date will the Pegula sale be announced as completed?

I know we are all on a wave of optimism but... My prediction, although grim is:

Myers, Miller, or Vanek gets hurt in the next 5 games and is out for 3-4 weeks

We miss the playoffs by 2-5 pts.

Summer: Pegula and Co. Get a #1 center, but move players most fans liked. Maybe- Roy, stafford, vanek, Sekera, Leopold etc...

Sorry, but I just don't have the faith this year, but having fun watching most games lately.

Other than Myers, Kassian, McCormick and Ennis, are there any other fan favorites?
