Hey Everyone!!

Greetings to everyone!! My name is Stevie, I'm a college student, and I'm a recently turned Buffalo Sabres fan and just got accepted to be a part of this great blog community! I'm really excited about this but I know I need to brush up on my knowledge of the Sabres as well as any slang or lingo you use here on DBTB. A final point before I move forward that I must admit is this: my favorite hockey team is the San Jose Sharks. While our teams aren't great rivals, I just figured I'd be very out front about that. However, with that being said, over the past few years, I've been very interested in what the Sabres have been doing primarily because Ryan Miller is an absolute beast and is probably my favorite hockey player not named Joe Pavelski.

 

First, I would like to ask for just like a basic background on the Sabres. I've been watching hockey frequently on my laptop here at school courtesy of NHL Gamecenter; so I know who a lot of the guys are that have been around in the league for a while (former Shark Christian Ehrhoff, Robyn Regehr, Brad Boyes) and also a lot of guys that have come through the Sabres system (Miller, Stafford, Vanek, Ennis, Gerbe, Connolly, Meyers, Pominville, Kaleta). I know a lot about those guys and I was wondering if there was anything important about the guys I've missed. Also, if there's any big prospects coming through the system that are exciting? I know for the Sharks we had Charlie Coyle before we dealt him in the Burns trade so if you have any high noteriety/really good prospects, please help me out because, in case you can't tell: when I like a team, I want to know as much as I can about them.

 

Just really quick, I have to talk about this: I go to school in western PA and I CANNOT STAND PENS AND FLYERS FANS!!! SO cocky that it's unbelievable. Also, as a Sharks fan, the only 2 teams I really hate are the Ducks and Wings and, being from the NY/PA/NJ border, I HATE HATE HATE HATE the Rangers!!!!! So, I'm a very polarizing figure, I guess. Haha.

 

I'd like to conclude with something that I'd like to let you all know: Sabres fans, from what I've seen, are the classiest in the NHL. I'm not sucking up as I have yet to run into a Sabres fan that is hostile towards another hockey fan or not know their team. Basically, even though they're not my favorite team, I would love to be considered a Sabres fan :) I hope to get a chance to talk to you guys and enjoy watching some Sabres hockey. Go Sharks and Go Sabres!
