It's July 1...also known as Christmas Day for hockey fans. The Sabres usually stay on the sidelines during free agency and yet we always get excited. Today will be no different, I presume. We get our hopes up in belief the Sabres will make a splash and they try to sign a few key players but quickly drop out when the price goes up.

The most excitement could be watching where current Sabres free agents end up in the upcoming hours.

We will be updating the site all day but this is the perfect place to chat with other Sabres fans and share any rumors you here throughout the day. The free agency primer can be read here.
