Mmmm, Tasty Prospects

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**.

    Dude, I can’t wait until those rumors about the Dead Kennedys and Kennedy start spreading!

    Bucky must be struggling to find the negative angle in the signing of all these prospects.

    Oh I know that the Sabres dropped the ball with Rochester and now they will play in Portland, so it will be harder to see them.

    Man, I hope these kids become Sabres sooner rather than later.
    On another note, my little cousin who is 15, 5’3 and goes about 210, just joined The Buffalo Regals. About two weeks later, someone (an ex Sabre) calls and wants him to join the Jr. Sabres. Ooops, a little late! Yaaaaaaaaaaay!
