DBTB Open Thread - Week of August 1st

What’s going on with me? Nothing at all, how about you?

We’re into that time of the year where there’s simply no Buffalo Sabres news as everyone’s away enjoying their summer breaks.

There’s not been much in the way of news aside from the announcement about the return of the Prospects Challenge, with the Boston Bruins, Montreal Canadiens, New Jersey Devils, Ottawa Senators and Pittsburgh Penguins all visiting, and all the games being played between September 15-19 at the Sabres home, the LECOM Harborcenter.

Also, a big thank you to everyone who responded to the call for feedback on what the DBTB crew can work on for the next few weeks for your reading pleasure. There were a bunch of really good ideas in there; we asked, and once again this blog’s incredible readership delivered. You have consistently proven yourselves to be by far the most hockey-savvy, realistic and supportive fanbase there is in the sport and this site is the better for your participation. Give yourselves a big pat on the back!

Use the comments below to discuss goings-on with the Sabres and the rest of the NHL for the week of August 1st.
