20 Questions With the Buffalo Sabres: We're Back!

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

DBTB'ers –

With the season right around the corner, I wanted to bring back an ol’ pre-COVID tradition round these parts: 20 Questions about our BFLO Sabres! And there are lots of questions to be answered for this upcoming season!

As in previous years, I'll tally up the answers and post a follow-up where we have the average, or the majority, responses all in one place...then, at the end of the season, we'll figure out who is the Numero Uno Prognosticator in Chief of DBTB. This prestigious title can be passed on from generation to generation, and winners are often inducted into the mythical DBTB Hall of Fame. Or so people have told me. Many people.

So, I'll make this easy. Cut and past the questions and respond to them in the comments, or simply number your responses to coordinate with the questions. Whatever you're feeling. And get those Uri Geller vibes flowing, my fellow DBTBers! I’ll compile all the responses into a spreadsheet, and then at the end of the season, I’ll tally up the guesses…I mean, the well-reasoned answers…and declare a winner!

Without further ado, let's get into it…

1. How many goals will Tage Thompson score?

2. Who will be the rookie * with the most games played?

3. What will the Sabres’ record be against the Atlantic?

4. Will Casey Mittelstadt score more than 50 points?

5. Who starts more games: UPL, Comrie, Anderson?
