The Sabres signed two tasty prospects this week. The cupboards are no longer bare, and Bucky Gleason can suck it. It was only a few weeks ago that everyone was sweating the lack of depth in Rochester, but things are definitely looking up in that regard. As a fairly new fan, it’s curious to witness the restocking of youngsters, and it’s fun to imagine that someday these kids might be Sabres. After becoming a diehard fan during a rather unfortunate phase of Sabre free agency flight, it’s refreshing to be reminded that, actually, there’s always a bunch of new kids banging on the door.
Tim Kennedy is a native Buffalonian. He’s also the distant cousin of the famed Massachusetts Kennedys, his uncle is a founding member the Dead Kennedy’s, and his sister is Kennedy*. Yay! A hometown hero!
Jhonas Enroth is an itty-bitty Swedish goalie who is supposedly quite good. Crunchy has been honing his death glare for months in preperation of Jhonas’ arrival**.
