Is it just me, or does anyone else get infuriated when you find out that not only did Rob Niedermayer get surgery on his knee, but that his knee has been injured since the pre-season? Hmmm...maybe there's a reason he's contributed almost nothing to this team, could it possibly be that he hasn't been 100% ALL YEAR?! This type of thing seems to happen all the time for Buffalo - remember how well Rivet played through his injury last year? Sabres, please, I beg you - just get these guys surgery immediately. Unless the name on the jersey is Miller or Roy we'll be fine without them for 2 or 3 weeks. Trust me. </rant>
