Buffalo Sabres Pick n' Mix - Wk of 10/28

Farewell Thomas, and wishing you the best of luck! - Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

It's hardly getting better for the Sabres. Now that Atlas has been Shrugged, does it get even worse from here?

Week 2 Update:

predator007 still leads the overall standings after a five-way tie in the week. See the scoreboard here.

====================================================

We can't even pretend that this is a moderate retooling. This is a full scale fire sale to be followed by a rebuild. Whether this rebuild makes us the Oilers or the Penguins remains to be seen. Until then, you can kill time by pretending you know the Buffalo Sabres right here. Test your knowledge of the game and the teams that play it on Pick n' Mix , here on Die By The Blade. The fantasy hockey game that doesn't need cheat sheets, stats, pencils, or late night drafts. All you have to do is pick what you think your favorite team the Buffalo Sabres are going to do in any given week.

Here's the Sabres' schedule for the next few days.

10/31 - Buffalo Sabres @ New York Rangers (Halloween - one night Rags fans can be themselves)
11/02 - Buffalo Sabres vs Anaheim Ducks (won 8 of last 10)
11/05 - Buffalo Sabres @ San Jose Sharks (Sharks are +28 in goal diff)
11/07 - Buffalo Sabres @ Los Angeles Kings (only chance at a West Coast point?)
11/08 - Buffalo Sabres @ Anaheim Ducks (do they wear those awesome throwbacks again?)

We will need you to come up with the following picks -

1) winning team [W] (including a shootout winner) = H or V
2) goals [G] over/under in each game (O/U of 5.5 goals) = O or U
3) powerplay goals [PPG] over/under in each game (O/U of 1.5 goals) = O or U
4) penalty minutes [PIM] over/under in each game (O/U of 25 PIM) = O or U
5) scorer of the game-winning goal [GWG] (including a shootout winner)

Scoring is simple, one point for each correct answer, a max of five per game. You can submit your answers in the comments section of this post, in the form of (for example) -

V O O O Moulson
V U O O Koivu
H O O U Marleau
H O U O Carter
H O O U Getzlaf

It's that easy! The game will close before puckdrop of the first game of the week, so we'll need all your week's picks in before that. If you miss the first game, you have until the second game of the week to play for that week. This will be season-long, so make sure you don't miss any weeks!

Good luck, and Go Sabres!
