There's not a convenient place to post messages like this here, so I'm doing the best I can. On short notice, I have an extra seat to Friday 11/30 St. Louis Blues at Colorado Avalanche. It's free on a first-come basis, and is a good seat in Sect. 148 behind the Blues bench. Wanna see our old friend ROR in his old haunts?me
A lot of the chatter is about Joe Battista, the team’s vice president of hockey-related business. He continues to be talked about in NHL circles as a growing player of influence within the hockey operation when he should be concentrating solely on HarborCenter activities. Battista, remember, has no prior NHL experience and came on board as a close confidante of Pegula in 2013 after a 26-year run at Penn State.Mike Harrington
"I had a call like that today that I never thought I would get on a guy," Murray said. "He actually said, 'Can you believe I'm calling you on this guy?' And I said, 'No, I can't. But let's talk."via WGR 550

I love Rene Robert and I love Danny Gare, but to see two guys just skate out with a little banner and raise it and it was over. It was just weird. It was awkward. It was weird."Matthew Barnaby, speaking on Sirius XM radio Wednesday. h/t/ Buffalo News

Keep Ruffin it Lindy! Since June 21, 1997, we have had the blessing of a coach who represents Buffalo perfectly. Tough, hard working, and committed. Just thought it was noteworthy that with Jerry Sloan's resignation from the Utah Jazz today, Lindy is now the longest tenured coach in all of North American Professional Sports. Congrats Lindy and thanks for the great work!
Craig Rivet Question - I hope this is the right place to put this. Has anyone heard anything about Craig Rivet's surgery? Has he had it? If so, how's his recovery. I saw it mentioned right after the season and nothing more. The Sabres Team Report from Yahoo! continues to say that he is planning to have it. Thanks.
