So Im a huge hockey fan and i support my hometown Buffalo Sabres. Now what will the sabes do this offseason? Thats a question ive been pondering a lot lately, I have seen many players linked to the sabres and im wondering who will Buffalo get? Whether its Gaborik, Jagr, or even Shannahan...the Sabres nees a little change. They were pretty streaky last season. Especially Miller, he was up and down like a rubber bouncy ball. He needs to get his head straight and play like he did 2 seasons ago. Take shootouts for example, he was 4-7 last season while 2 seasons ago he was 10-4(best in the league). That was my biggest gripe with him last year. Why such a huge dropoff?? Im still wondering to this day. Now back to the offseason moves. I think we need a veteran goalie to back up Miller. May Kolzig, he could be a little pricy though. Maybe Theodore. He was solid last season for the most part. Maybe even the dominator.....wellll maybe not. But i think we get rid of T-Bo and make a small but decent offer to Kolzig or Theodore. Now all the VERY interesting rumors ive seen on this site made me think alot. The 2 that stick out the most are Gaborik and Liles. They are the most recent but i think they are very do-able. If the cap goes up like they say it is...(could be 56.5 million they say) we can get them here. We may not have veteran leadership unless we resign Teppo...but i think the sabres would benefit from gaborik and liles. Liles may not be huge and a play stopper....but he is playmaker and he is young. I like that about him. Now we may not need scoring but Gaborik would bring even more fans to Buffalo. He is the "fastest player in the league." If we can find 1 other solid D-man along with Liles, Gaborik, and a Vet goalie....the Sabres would be fine next season. We would still have enough money for Miller, Pomminville, Bernier,Gaustad, Paille, Mcarthur, maybe Numminen, and Pratt. Now if we can resign those guys this season it would be great. but i doubt it will happen knowing Buffalo's management. Who will we give up for Gaborik or even "player X"? Is it Max, Kalinin, Kotalik, Lydman, SJ's number 1 draft pick, or even some of our prospects. Let me know what you guys think we should do??????????????
