Its June 30th, and as I sit here today, I realize the end of an era is dawning. The end of the era of the Captains. 2 men, brought together in seperate trades in 2003 to bring the Buffalo Sabres out of mediocrity and take them to glory.
But with the mission not yet completed, although at times it has come very close, it looks like the captains will be making a move out of the Queen City.
My question is, how will you feel when/if they leave? Will you be sad, knowing you spent your hard earned cash on their jersey, only to get one year out of it? Will you be mad that Sabres management didnt do enough to try and keep both? Or will you be optimistic that a young core that was led by these two can take the lessons they learned and move on as if nothing happened?
Lets hear you, Buffalo fans and hockey fans in general. How will you feel if this is the end of the Captains?
