Both my teams lost last night, but it's preseason, so I'll just say "¯\_(ツ)_/¯" and hope it's a life lesson for all the people involved. I enjoyed watching Kraft Hockeyville, especially because they cited a lot of Slapshot in the production. I didn't enjoy watching the Sabres pummel the Leafs, but Will Nye had some jump, and it's great to see him listen to Babcock and Bring It.
In the words of George Lucas:
It is a period of rebuilding. New players, striking from a hidden part of the ice,
have won the trust of their coach against the evil other team.
During the battle, these players managed to make the original team look kind of shitty,
but hope bodes well for the future.

Pre-Sabres 4, Pre-Leafs 0 | PPP
"The lineup the Leafs chose to ice tonight was probably pretty close to the overall ability that they will offer on a regular basis during the regular season, and being out-played this badly by a similarly-equipped Sabres preseason squad doesn't bode well. Of course, the team will probably come together and be better than this on many nights, especially after Babcock works with them for a while, but still. I think we are in for a dark season."

Riddle me this. Ten potential Solar Bears, including all three of the goaltenders and the coach, will be in Newfoundland playing a game Thursday night. They have to fly to Orlando by the start of training camp, 10:45 AM Friday. Possible?
