The Detroit maybe known as Hockeytown, but they can keep it, because Hockey Heaven is great.
Buffalo Sabres president Ted Black stated that Buffalo will be Hockey Heaven. Well the Sabres have since proven to be just that.
It started with the installation of a rug that had the Sabres logo on it. Then it continued on to the announcement that they were redesigning the locker rooms and has now spread to the roster itself.
The team already made a big splash last weekend by trading for defenseman Robyn Reghr, and many may have thought that be it until free agency opens. Well that wasn’t the case as Wednesday night it was announced that the Sabres acquired the negotiating rights to defenseman Christian Ehrhoff for a fourth round pick, according to TSN
Just the mere notion of Sabres general manager Darcy Regier doing such a thing is stunning. Now, you can add on to that as Regier followed through and signed Ehrhoff.
If soon to be unrestricted free agents haven’t noticed what the Sabres have been doing they sure have now as two major acquisitions in the matter of weeks sends the message that the only thing that matters is a Stanley Cup.
In the end, Hockey Heaven is already fantastic.
