So, we signed a couple of prospects this week. First there was Nathan Gerbe, and then Felix Schutz. These signings were particularly hilarious because Bucky Gleason had just finished being all, “The Sabres are screwing it all up AGAIN. No one EVER wants to play here because the Sabres are cheap, and slow, and impossible to negotiate with,” when Darcy came out and was all, “We signed some dudes.“
Until these boys are shopping at my local Wegman’s I probably won’t bother to learn too much about them, but people are pretty excited about Nathan Gerbe, so I thought I’d find a picture of him at least.
Get this. Here is a picture of Nathan Gerbe standing next to Kevin Sylvester:
Unless Kevin Sylvester is a giant, Nathan Gerbe is itty-bitty.
According to the Sabres website, Gerbe is 5’6″. Hm. I’m not quite buying it. But no matter! As Darcy said, “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” Hopefully, Gerbe won’t have to do too much fighting for the Sabres, anyway.
The other kid’s name is Schutz, which is awesomely pronounced “Shootz”. His name alone is good enough for me. Slap a slug on him, and toss him on the ice, I say!
Welcome to Buffalo, new guys!
