1. I’m going to jump on the bandwagon and say, “YAY TWITTER!” Anyone who poo-poos Twitter has never spent two weeks in the deep New Hampshire woods with only sporadic internet access. Twitter has been HUGELY fabulous while I’ve been away. Thanks to Twitter, I found out about Michael Jackson in a timely manner and I was able to follow along with the NHL draft while at the Apple Hill skit night. Twitter is a great way to stay connected when you are away from a computer. At this point in human history I demand to know what’s going on at all times, but I ALSO like leaving the house and stepping away from my computer. That’s where Twitter is awfully handy. Plus, it’s a hoot to see who rocks at Twittering and who sucks.
2. I hear Darcy drafted some big, punchy dude. Excellent.
3. It sounds like Spacek is not going to be a Sabre next year. That pisses me off a bit. I get irritated when people act like losing Jaro is no big deal. I think we still need him. I know it’s still very early in the off season, but Darcy has a LONG way to go before I stop assuming the Sabres will suck next season. A long long looooooooong way to go.
4. It also sounds like we should keep one eye on the Stafford situation. I can’t quite put my finger on Staffy. Part of me thinks he’s never going to pan out as a points leader, and part of me thinks that in a different system, with a different coach, he’s got the potential to be great. I just have this hunch that Lindy and Staffy hate each other. I’m wary of letting Stafford get away, but I’m also wary of giving him a contract based on his “potential”. I’ve had it UP TO HERE waiting for the Sabres to live up to their potential. Personally, I’d fire Lindy before I’d give up on Staffy, but I’m willing to admit that my judgement is wacky when it comes to these things.
