Sabres getting assraped

Today the Sabres lost both of their captains today.

Briere signed with the fucking Flyers for an 8 year 52 million dollar deal and apparently Drury is going to be signing with the Rangers.

Seeing Briere sign with the Flyers is horribly painful. I have a really strong hatred for Philly for numerous reasons. However it isn't as painful as seeing Drury go. As most people know he is my favorite player, not just because he is awesome but he also played for BU last time they won the championship. I guess the good news is that I will get to see him play more since he is coming to NYC, but I really don't think I can bring myself to root for the Rangers in any particular way.

Thus is the dilemma of being a small market team. You can't keep your players with huge contracts because you just don't have the money. The big boys swoop in and sign all your good players to huge contracts. The only thing I can hope for now is that the Flyers are still a ridiculous joke this year. I think they will be. Briere will help, but their problems are vast and he won't solve them all. Meanwhile, the Rangers should be pretty formidable with the addition of Drury.

Well, godspeed Drury and eat a dick Briere. Thus continues the painful life of a Buffalo fan.

Gary B lost a year of NHL hockey for this? Worst commisioner in professional sports. I don't blame the players for taking more money. I would do the same thing. I blame Sabres ownership for not stepping up and doing everything possible to lock these guys up earlier. Briere and Drury would have stayed for less had they been offered deals During the Season. Good luck in your new jersies. Rangers win the cup in '08.
