……his name is Craig Rivet, and he’s the boss of you.
Perhaps it’s time someone put a picture of him in a Sabres uniform on the Sabres website.
For some reason this makes me laugh really hard. After all that fussing around with the rotating C last year, Lindy wound up giving it permanently to the guy who’s only been on the team for 17 seconds. Lindy was all, “You players want a permanent captain? Fine. You can have one, but it’s not going to be your cuddly BFF Pommerdoodle, it’s going to be the scary new guy AND HE WILL PUNCH YOU DIRECTLY IN THE FACE IF YOU DON’T WATCH IT.”
UPDATE: Whaaa? It turns out that this was a TEAM VOTE! So, basically the Sabres are saying, “Um, all that stuff we said last year about ‘tons of leadership in the room’? Funny, thing. Yeah. See, the truth is, well…..that was all bullhonky. We were TOTALLY freaked out last year.”
I guess there really was a leadership vaccum last season. Thank goodness we’ve got a new guy on the team that everyone respects. (Nice work, Darcy. *fist bump*)
