(I added “Tall” at the end of the title of this post because about two hours after I wrote it, I realized it was a bit awkward without it. But maybe that’s just me being a nerd.)
I kind of wanted a defenseman last night, but when I saw that the Sabres drafted someone who wasn’t five feet tall, I was thrilled. Positively thrilled. And a bruiser? By bruiser, do you mean someone who would hit back after his goaltender got hurt? Fabulous. Mr. Kassian, welcome to the team. We’re happy to have you. Don’t listen to anything any of the Sabres might have to say, because they’ll only corrupt you.
The draft started off yesterday with Pronger going to Philly. I personally think the Flyers got jobbed, but maybe that’s just me. Can they really accommodate Pronger’s salary and a possible extension with Briere’s contract weighing them down?
This morning, Bouwmeester was finally saved from Florida and sent up to Calgary. I hope for the Flames’ sake that they can get him signed.
It’ll be interesting to see who the Sabres draft today. They seem to have better luck with later picks.
