PRE-SEASON! WOOOOOOOOO!

Okay, so after the last round of cuts the Leafs had 2 days off and now play back to back vs Buffalo and Montreal. Tonight is the Sabres, a team many people expect good things of this year. I don't, but I'm kind of dumb when it comes to predictions.

Buffalo Sabres at Toronto Maple Leafs

Welcome to Toronto, Sabres! I hope you're ready for non-stop shoulder shrugs and "meh". Also take a good look at the man who spurned you, BABCOCK IN THE HOUSE!

I have no idea where I'm going with any of this.

The Sabres made some changes last year, and you can read about them here. Kane, Eichel, Blysma, lots of stuff going on. Lotsa cool... cool... okay it's the pre-season I don't care what's going on in Buffalo, it's a split squad game tonight, here are you line ups:
