DBTB Open Thread - Week of 12/14

Let’s talk about what’s going on in the world.. of the Sabres and the NHL

Here’s an open thread for discussing all matters Buffalo Sabres and NHL related for this week. Of course, you can talk about anything else you like too.

The NHL and the players’ association NHLPA are continuing to talk and most media sources seem to think matters are progressing well but as yet there’s no set dates on when hockey can resume.

In case you missed it, the divisional realignment is done and apparently there is some opposition to the new divisions from some teams.

The World Hockey Juniors is an annual tradition and with all ten teams in the bubble already, the competition is set to start on Christmas Day.
