Hey, look at this guy. He’s a Sabre.
“My name is Raffi Torres. I am now Buffalo’s lead scorer.”
Nathan Paetsch is now a Blue Jacket, and Clarke MacArthur is now a 3rd and 4th round draft pick, so we must say their eulogies.
Nathan Paetsch, your face is pleasingly round, and you always seem so polite and cordial. Your ability to play almost any position on the ice will be missed, as will your helmet that you had Chara autograph after he dented it with a slapshot. We wish you well in Columbus. Good luck with the co-eds and the ice girls. Please send Rick Nash my best. Thank you for your service to the Buffalo Sabres. Amen.
Clarke MacArthur, you have frustrated me many times over the years, and your ridiculous hair makes you look perpetually stoned. You do, however, have a good nickname. “The General” will be missed. We wish you well in Atlanta. I’ll look for you in the Atlanta airport when I fly Delta. Good luck with the traffic and the heat. Please send Max Afinogenov my best. Thank you for your service to the Buffalo Sabres. Amen.
In other news, we probably all owe Darcy Regier a wee bit of an apology. He DID something! Yay!
So, Darcy, sorry we all doubted you, and thank you SO MUCH for not re-signing Henrik Tallinder and telling us it’s the same as a big trade. Seriously. This is so much better than that would have been.
