So the regular season started today with the Penguins and the Senators playing in Stockholm, by the way Senators lost in overtime 4-3, while we here in Buffalo are forced to endure yet another preseason game, really? can’t we just get to real hockey yet, I think we’ve waited long enough. If we win I say we pull the ol’ switcheroo on Detroit and say “just kidding this was for keeps” and if we lose we can still claim that it was a preseason.
Anyways, the news broadcast also said that Tampa Bay and Rangers had finished their game in Prague, Czech Republic with the Rangers winning 2-1. However, the Rangers winning didn’t come before one of our former players, and I’m not talking about ‘captain clutch’, made a mistake that allowed the Lightning to score. Yep that’s right Dmitri Kalinin, or as I like to call him THE BUM allowed himself to be faked out by a Lightning player who used the opportunity to score, didn’t take Kalinin long to screw his new team over, and as the title of the post claims it’s really nice to see things don’t change. Because as we all know a player can do really bad here, get traded and on their new team become a world class goal scorer and play maker. It’s part of the curse I tell ya, we get screwed over every time, No Goal, Norwide, etc. Although in this case I say good ridance may the door hit you on the way out, ya’ll don’t come back now ya hear, no seriously, please, never step foot inside our arena again, better yet don’t step anywhere in the vicinity of Buffalo. As you can probably tell I don’t hold any love for Kalinin because well, how can I put this nicely, he was a waste of air and roster space here in Buffalo and he’s obviously going to be the same in New York, but at least now he’s their problem let them deal with him.
So the Sabres have lost their first preseason games…so what? It’s not actually real hockey season so it frustrates me to no end that people keep saying that this season is going to end up like the last. Get a clue people, the team that is playing now is the not the team that is going to start the season. That’s why it’s called the preseason, it’s a chance for the coaches to see who works well together and to get a feel for the new guys.
So anyway, something that I found extremely funny last night while listening to the game was the fact that Jeanerette decided to announce that they had a moose alarm on the bus that took the players from the airport to Roberval, Quebec.
A MOOSE ALARM!!!!!
How hilarious is that? Because we all know that the moose sit on the side of the road just waiting for a big ol’ bus to come rolling down the street, saying “hey guys let’s see if this one has an alarm…Aw man it does that’s no fun, lets wait for another one.”
