The season begins

After four games were played in Europe last weekend, the NHL season gets underway for real tonight with four games being played. Buffalo gets in their first game of the season tomorrow against the Montreal Canadians. Despite all the talk about the Sabres wanting to get off to a good start this season, the Canadians are a tough opponent, and will be good this year.

Weber was recently sent to Portland, to get Buffalo under the roster limit. Matt Ellis is remaining with the club, but it is still not cler if he will actually play in the game or not. Paetsche has been kept with Buffalo as well, but is expected to be a healthy scratch.

Chicago got a free conditional draft pick, by claiming former Sabre Doug Janik from waivers and then immediatly trading him back.
