As NHL training camps open this week, I thought it would be appropriate to bring back these regular (ideally, daily) link posts here at Die by the Blade. These posts are intended to provide a snapshot of what’s happening around the hockey world, including across the NHL, and share other Buffalo Sabres-centric pieces you may have missed.
As a writer, I always enjoy reading other people’s work. Everyone comes into the sport with a different perspective, and no two stories will ever really be the same. As things start to kick up with training camp and preseason, there will undoubtedly be a lot going on around the league, so let these posts serve as a catch-all, a round-up and a forum for discussion.
Without further ado... let the season (and fun!) commence.
