And Heeeeeeere We Go!

While the Chris Pronger trade (I couldn’t believe everything Philly had been asking from Washington in exchange for Pronger.  GMGM, not trading half your team plus Varly for him was a fabulous choice on your part) during the draft was definitely big, the Scott Gomez trade that just happened is, in my opinion, the biggest one yet.  I’m kind of surprised that the Habs took on Gomez, especially if they’re interested in the Sedins and want to trade for Vinny, but whatever.  The Rangers were able to dump that awful contract and now maybe they’ll have room for Heatley..?  Either way, this’ll probably open the flood gates.

Darcy Regier is scheduled to appear on Sabres Lunch Express tomorrow.  Um, I’m sorry, what?  Free agency will have just started.  I don’t care if Darcy has absolutely no intention of signing anyone tomorrow.  He should at least be near a phone in case someone else calls.  Darcy’s really pissing me off lately.  I’m never a fan of signing free agents to huge, lifetime contracts just because it’s Free Agency Day, but I wish Darcy would at least DO SOMETHING.  Obviously, the team we have isn’t cutting it and changes need to be made.  Darcy Regier, you’re on my list.

USA Hockey announced the roster for the developmental camp in August.  Ryan Miller was the only Sabre named to it.  I’m happy for him and I’m excited to see him compete with TimTom for the starting job, but I’m a little sad that Goosie or Stafford didn’t make it.  Oh well.  I’ve been having these terribly anti-American feelings lately that the Russians are going to be amazing this winter.  I apologize for being such a bad American.  I’ll try to be more optimistic about Team USA from this point on.
