Another episode of Beyond The Blade is live for your listening pleasure. This week’s episode is a look ahead to what this season may hold for the Buffalo Sabres. Will they take the next step towards being a playoff competitor or is another frustrating season in front of us?
We start the episode off by talking about the lines from practice yesterday. Specifically, we focus on Vladimir Sobotka playing in the top six on a line with Jeff Skinner and Marcus Johansson. We also struggle over the thought process behind having Evan Rodrigues be a healthy scratch on opening night.
In the second half of the podcast we move more towards an optimistic approach to the season. We touch on some ways the Sabres can finish better than expected. We also share a few bold predictions.
