Now that Drury and Briere are gone, and preseason is less than a month away, let's play a little game to get to know our new team! The 07-08 Buffalo Sabres.

We sometimes forget that off the ice, these are real people...people a lot like you and me. Some of us share more qualities with certain Sabres than others. Which Sabre are you most like?

Grade yourself in each of the seven categories below (and be honest), keeping in mind the type of person you are in a work or school environment. Write down the letters you come up with on a sheet of paper, or on your computer.

Then, scroll down to find which of the below combinations you're combinations most resemble. This is the Sabre you're most like! (Yes, I got a little bored. A four-hour Yankee rain delay and dismal Bills performance will do that to you. But I'm watching the Yankees now, with my girlfriend, so all is good in the world.)

1. Lives up to potential/good work ethic - A yes, B mostly, C moderate, D a little, E not at all
2. Skilled/talented - A yes, B mostly, C moderate, D a little, E not at all
3. Extroverted (outspoken, aggressive) - A yes, B mostly, C moderate, D a little, E not at all
4. Veteran/experienced - A yes, B mostly, C moderate, D a little, E not at all
5. Stylistic (fancy, unique, signature) - A yes, B mostly, C moderate, D a little, E not at all
6. Leader - A yes, B mostly, C moderate, D a little, E not at all
7. Works well under pressure - A yes, B mostly, C moderate, D a little, E not at all

--when done, tally your score and scroll down!--

1. A 2. A 3. C 4. C 5. D 6. B 7. A
You're Ryan Miller. You're generally calm, cool and collected, or you seem so anyway, but when you get upset, you can downright lose it. You're also very talented, and though you're still relatively new to the league, you're already establishing yourself as a superstar.

1. A 2. A 3. D 4. A 5. B 6. A 7. B
You're Jochen Hecht. You're the veteran of the bunch and more than equipped for the grind involved in your trade. You have a wide range of skills and bear fruits to your labor.

1. A 2. B 3. A 4. A 5. D 6. A 7. A
You're Teppo Numminem. You're the oldest of the bunch and have been around the block a few times. Those who mock you for your age are just jealous that you can still play the game, and play it effectively.

1. A 2. B 3. B 4. A 5. D 6. C 7. B
You're Derek Roy. Small in stature, yes, but you have the heart of a lion. Sometimes you get caught taking a dive, but more often than not, you're taking one for the team instead.

1. A 2. B 3. C 4. E 5. C 6. B 7. C
You're Drew Stafford. You're loyal and always willing to take one for the team. You're a good sport about things, even when you're disappointed, and you're always ready for a new challenge.

1. A 2. B 3. E 4. A 5. E 6. C 7. A
You're Henrik Tallinder. You're reliable and a strong force, but also tall, lanky and can be frail. Be careful, or others will push you around!

1. A 2. C 3. A 4. A 5. E 6. A 7. B
You're Lindy Ruff. You're very outspoken and not afraid to take the "tough love" approach. You stand up for what you believe in and let everybody know exactly what's on your mind.

1. A 2. C 3. E 4. B 5. D 6. A 7. A
You're Jason Pominville. You're not the most outspoken of the bunch, but you lead by example. You can be counted on to score the big goal when things are on the line. Others sometimes disregard what you're capable of....at their own risk.

1. A 2. D 3. A 4. B 5. B 6. A 7. A
You're Paul Gaustad. You have the heart of a champion and always support your team, even when you can't be out on the ice with them. You bring a constant energy, and your enthusiasm is contagious.

1. A 2. D 3. B 4. A 5. C 6. B 7. D
You're Adam Mair. You're a workhorse. You're always trying to perfect your game and your work ethic rubs off on others around you. You never say die, not even at the very end.

1. A 2. E 3. B 4. E 5. A 6. C 7. C
You're Nathan Paestch. You're extremely versatile and well-rounded. When the team needs you most, you step up to the bell. You're flexible, open-minded and know how to "wing" it.

1. B 2. A 3. C 4. A 5. A 6. A 7. A
You're Brian Campbell. You're an all-star and can make others look flat-out silly with your spin-o-rama. Your crisp skating and sharp shot from the point are your greatest assets. You're smooth. You make the most difficult tasks look easy.

1. B 2. A 3. E 4. E 5. A 6. D 7. C
You're Thomas Vanek. You're young, vibrant and enthusiastic. You have a unique style and have no problem giving to others as much as you give yourself. You have the potential to be one of the elite in the league, but you're not completely proven yet.

1. B 2. C 3. B 4. A 5. D 6. C 7. C
You're Joceyln Thibault. You're the newest kid on the block, but you're not going to be shy about it. You've been places and you're excited to share what you know in your new job.

1. C 2. B 3. C 4. A 5. C 6. C 7. C
You're Toni Lydman. You're a bit mysterious and have a thing for hardcore rock. You're also the life of the party and you're not too bad at hockey, either.

1. D 2. A 3. D 4. A 5. A 6. B 7. C
You're Tim Connolly. You're accident prone, but when you're at your best, you're awfully good. Nobody knows what you're gonna do next; just remember to keep your head up at all times.

1. D 2. A 3. D 4. B 5. A 6. E 7. A
You're Max Afinogenov. You're speedy, flashy and can put on the moves, but sometimes you have trouble finishing what you've started (putting the puck in the net). You have a flair for the dramatics and live on the edge.

1. D 2. C 3. D 4. E 5. D 6. E 7. D
You're Mike Ryan. You don't have much experience, but you're not afraid to get your feet wet. don't let your nerves get in the way of showing everybody what you can do.

1. D 2. E 3. A 4. B 5. D 6. A 7. B
You're Andrew Peters. You have a temper problem, you're overly agressive and have self-control issues. But boy, do you stand up for your team!

1. E 2. A 3. C 4. A 5. E 6. E 7. D
You're Jaroslav Spacek. You're a diamond in the rough. So far you're not delivering on your potential, but it certainly doesn't mean you're not prepared. You have the skills and just need to learn to use them.

1. E 2. A 3. C 4. B 5. E 6. E 7. E
You're Dmitri Kalinin. At your best, you're one of the best; but far too often, you lose focus and don't follow through. Consistency is your biggest problem.

1. E 2. B 3. E 4. B 5. D 6. E 7. D
You're Ales Kotalik. you have great talent, but sometimes lack consistency because you second-guess yourself. Don't be afraid to show what you can do!
