Without the Olympics and Crunchy’s contract to tide us over, this off-season is SO much more boring then last year.
The only thing I can think to dwell on is Drew Stafford, and even I can’t get myself too worked up over him. I mean, I suppose I hope they sign him, but frankly I’m feeling very uneasy about how similar next year’s team is likely to be to last year’s team. If Staffy has to be the sacrificial lamb in the name of “change,” so be it. At this point I’m pretty confused about Staffy’s value to the Sabres, and I’m worried that he and Lindy just can’t make it work. Maybe it would be best for all parties to set Staffy free. (Free to play hockey elsewhere, not free to roam the land eating whatever brains he happens upon. Heavens, no. Staffy must be contained. The only question is…where?)
Like I said, boring times.
