I know there are many Sabres fans who are frustrated by the many times that Eklund (HockeyBuzz.com) puts out rumors that he apparently "hears" regarding the Sabres and Free Agents or Trades. Trust me, I'm there with you on that. It's like your parents taking you by your favorite place as a kid only to say you can look but can't go inside... yes, I do have issues. However, I will say this... Eklund, in my opinion, sums of Buffalo, its athletes and fans pretty well in this quick read... I don't think anyone from Buffalo will be disappointed with the point he makes, even if you don't agree that the Sabres should close a deal for Stempniak (that isn't really the point of the article, in my opinion).
