I think the Sabres knew that I wanted to coast through the evening, because they provided a stress-free, pleasant hockey game for my viewing pleasure.  I like a high energy nail biter too, but sometimes it’s fun to just let an easy win wash over the evening.  No fuss, no muss.


In unrelated news, I would like to call your attention to this, which I wrote on December 20th:

Hey, remember Chris Drury?  Right now, Chris Drury has three more points than Drew Stafford.  Drew.  Stafford.  The biggest difference between them is that Drew is a +6, and Dru is a -5.  Also, Drury is   $6 mil more per season than Stafford.  Intangibles don’t come cheap, you guys!

I originally wrote this to serve a totally different point, but since then I’ve kept an eye on the stats of Mr. Drury and Mr. Stafford.  For the last two months, I’ve periodically checked in to see who is winning the “scoring race” (snort) between them.  Amazingly, the two have stayed nearly neck and neck for months.   For some reason I’m unreasonably proud of having noticed early on that these two are statistical twinsies.

Now, we here in Buffalo know that Drew Stafford is WAY better than Chris Drury. These stats look terrible on Chris Drury, but they don’t look half bad on young Drew Stafford….and anyway, the stats don’t tell the whole tale.  We know that Staffy’s better because he scored two goals tonight, and also because we’ve seen his eyelashes in HD.

Intangibles, baby.  Staffy’s got ’em.

    PLUS Staffy has a way better sense of humor… you would never see Dru interview with a pigeon on his shoulder nor do a piece with a wig and stache. So all around… we got it way better… Staffy rules.

    And Staffy has the most magnificent set of eyebrows to be seen on TV since Peter Gallagher on the OC. Dru cannot match the power that is the eyebrows.

    Staffy reminds me a bit of Sylar from Heroes…

    That;s funny, JB. I can just see him running his finger along Pogge’s forehead as he’s coming in on a breakaway.
