The Comming Season

A large reason for this site in the first place is to combat the growing negativity regarding the coming season. Yes losing a few players does hurt, but the Sabres are still the team to beat in the east. Much has been made regarding the loss of Drury and Briere, and losing Zubrus was almost worse then losing Briere was. Still there is still a good team here. The entire defence is comming back, including Campbell, Tallinder, Lydman, and Paetsch. Additionally the Miller will still be in net. So the entire backend is still there, not bad. And in addition to that the Sabres will have the oppertunity to keep together their top line of Roy, Vanek, and Afinogenov. Also no one should be saying that Gaustad, Stafford, and Pominville arn't that bad either. Connolly might also be healthy this season which is obviously a huge plus, and fills in that center area that is suddenly a bit lacking after being so overfilled last season...
