Sabres Links: Vesey watch ends, is Murray at fault, where does Ristolainen rank?
Jimmy Vesey will not be a Buffalo Sabre. Is the team totally doomed? (Probably not)
Jack: I'm coming back to Die By The Blade
Before anyone ever cared where I wrote stories, I was a blogger from Die By The Blade. It's where I walked. It's where I ran. It's where I cried. It's where I bled. It holds a special place in my heart. The readers there have seen me grow up. I sometimes feel like I'm their son. Their passion can be overwhelming. But it drives me. I want to give them hope when I can. I want to inspire them when I can. My relationship with Die By the Blade is bigger than writing. I didn't realize that four years ago. I do now.
At Die By The Blade, nothing is given. Everything is earned. You work for what you have.
I'm ready to accept the challenge. I'm coming home.
