Andy picked the perfect time to go on vacation. There is absolutely nothing going on with the Buffalo Sabres right now. I am working on a Buffalo Sabres related post right now, and at this pace, I should have it ready by the first pre-season game.

This also means the Hawks could need to unload another very good player, a possible trade partner for Darcy, or will Patrick Sharp be the next Hawk playing in Atlanta next season?
