    Labor Day. That’s when I might allow the first signs of panic to creep in.

    Now that I have lost my beloved Mike Ryan,I am now fully able to focus on full fledged Pommers related panic.so yes, for me, ITS TIME!

    I’m with Heather, Labor Day is a good time to panic. Its about two weeks from the start of camp, which was the deadline the team was trying to work with.

    Here’s hoping that everyone is distracted by the Olympics and there will be a deal announced soon.

    No reason to panic…he’s an RFA. Plenty of time.

    Just, no sudden movements. Wouldn’t want to startle him.

    I’m holding off on the panic until Labor Day, too! After all, Darcy’s been a busy boy this summer. He knows Pommerdoodle wants to stay in Buffalo and Pommerdoodle knows Buffalo wants him to stay, so it’s just a matter of getting it on paper. There’s plenty of time for that.

    If I’m wrong, I WILL cry! :(

    Just sayin’ is all.

    Yep, Labor Day. I think your right Amy, after the Olympics, oh and the Fair!

    Alright, I’ll wait until Labor Day.

    No need to panic even on Labor day. He’s an RFA next summer, and I think that Drew Stafford might be more likely to get an offersheet than Pominville. So uh, panic about Stafford?

  13. 13 TheTick August 14, 2008 at 10:14 pm

    Why would Angry Eyebrows be more likely to get sheeted (can I make that a verb?) than Pominville?

  14. 14 Katebits August 14, 2008 at 10:25 pm

    Great! Now I’m scared about Staffy AND Pommerdoodle! :P

    Hmmm…me too.
    Heh, They showed Mama Phelps putting on lipgloss right before her baby won his 6th! Heather you must really like the commercals with Morgan Freeman saying Congrats Mike on your umpteenth gold medal!

    I think Stafford is more likely to get an offer sheet because in order for the Sabres not to match a sheet for Pominville, the offer would have to be huge- max compensation huge (four first round picks). This has only happened once (to us, unfortunately) and I don’t think teams are going to be willing to pony up for Pominville unless he has a 100 point season. I could be wrong though.

    Stafford on the other hand is the kind of player that gets offersheets more often. Big winger, power forward potential than he hasn’t quite lived up to yet (see: Bernier, Penner). I definately could see a team that’s enamored with him (Edmonton?) shooting him a $3-$3.5 mil/multi year offersheet. If he has similar stats to his first two years that will be more than Darcy will want to pay, and you know he’s not going to want to give an relatively unproven guy like Stafford a long-term deal. The Sabres will take the compensation picks and bye-bye Stafford.
