Introduction from your first round pick

Hey (now) fellow Sabre fans!

I'm more than happy to become a fan!

I grew up just north of Hartford and was a diehard Whale fan. Once they moved, I really didn't follow the NHL much. I moved to Atlanta in 2001, and by 2003, was a big Thrasher fan. Here we are today.

I picked Buffalo as one of my preferred teams because

1) My brother-in-law is a die hard who grew up there. His newborn daughter...



2) Since this is a recent touchy topic, I love a franchise with committed ownership.

3) I love the strong history. Even though he tore up the Whale, one of my all-time faves...



I hope I can get to know all of you. Let me know what avatar you all want me to sport.

GO SABRES!!

I promise to read up on the team and prospects so I can at least sound like I know what I'm talking about.

Wait, we didn't get ASF?

Once again our first round pick sucks.


Fire Darcy, Lindy, trade Miller, Roy, Vanek, Pominville

Enroth >> Miller, Miller >>>>>>>>>>>> ENroth

Gaustad is a 4th liner, no he's a 3rd liner

We should totally keep Connolly because he's awesome at the PK, No Connolly sucks he should GTFO

theme avatars are the curse, no they rock

I think that covers what our board is like.

Welcome to Hockey Heaven (sorry about losing your team)

In the end it's all Quinn's fault anyway.

Don't forget:

Buffalo can never win a Cup because the city is cursed

The team is too small. We need lots of big guys who are slow and unmotivated -- but really big.

We actually should have won the Cup in '99 ("No Goal") and '06 (would have beaten Carolina and crushed Edmonton but for freak injuries, staph infection, delay of game penalty)

If only we had signed Briere to an extension before he went to arbitration. . .

If only we had kept Lydman last year . . .

etc., etc.

Please make sure to pick up your complimentary I hate Quinn t-shirt and bottle of Xanax before entering the conference.

we can help educate you on fellow Sabres posters as well. perhaps we can relate them to Sabres players of the past/present....

Chainshot = Gilbert Perrault

Jame = Patrick Kaleta

Pegula actually cried when he saw Chain in the stands at his first game as an owner.

Welcome to the Sabres board, where hyperbole, semantics, assumptions and bloviating are like currency
It's all good, as long as you don't have thin skin

What is the general feeling in Atlanta about the team moving?

Also, we have an OT thread for being... OT. 1000th post gets to start the next one and thus gets naming rights.

We straddle the border between Canada and the US, but have the largest Austrian following on HF. And as you may have noticed, Sabre fans are a national diaspora -- we're everywhere due to years of WNY political shenanigans and business failures driving people to greener pastures (aka. jobs). Some of our busiest posters aren't anywhere near town -- DC, Tampa, Phoenix, Boston, NYC, Atlanta, the Carolina's, SoCal, Toronto, Vancouver... we've got regulars all over the US/Canada.

We understand having people temporarily take over our arena and act like tools. (And we manage to do that then in turn too... )

Woot! As someone else said, a former Whale fan is fine by me!

So since you choose Buffalo as your team perhaps you can talk to Brad Richards and enlighten him as to why he should come here...haha

the PPV sales would be through the roof!

welcome aboard Whaler...these guys are great, and going from the ASG clownshow to the Pegula Era Sabres should make you very happy.

General feeling is that ASG is as crooked as it comes. It's tough, but we hope the Hawks and the arena (which they still own) manage to bankrupt them and they're seen in the next five years begging for change under an overpass by Turner Field.

Pay-Per-View!!! My Lord...Add a gator pit and you're on! Congrats on new ownership. Sounds like the perfect owner.

Not touching that one.


Thank you all. Can't wait for the draft and free agency!

Oh....Let me know what avatar you all want me to show off.
