Oh Goose, I miss you (please come back!!). Gaustad, now a member of the the Nashville Predators, had a pretty decent first round. In Game 1 of the series against the Detroit Red Wings, he scored the first goal of the series, that was also his first ever playoff goal. Goose also continued his face-off prowess, winning over 50% in all but 1 game of the 5 game series.
Let it be known, Danny Briere’s chance to win the Stanley cup were swept out the door just as fast as the Flyers!!! Â Sorry, it was necessary, but there are still other past Sabres left in the playoffs and I don’t mind if they win, well some of them….
J.P Dumont – Yepp still love him, miss him and want him back. Â Even though he hasn’t played yet in the Vancouver series, he is still a great player, leader and person. Â I would love to see him finally get his shot at a Cup, he’s not getting any younger you know…
Raffi Torres - ?? does he really count, no, ok moving on…
Daniel Paille – Oh PIEZY!! We still miss him, he’s a solid player when he’s on, when he’s not, get out of the way (or just get him out of the way). Â So far he has 3 points (2G and 1A) in 11 playoff games, but he has the benefit of being a member of the Beast’s of the East. Â Finger’s crossed for Paille, just because.
Dominic Moore – Oh yeah, he did play for us. Â Well now he plays for Tampa (Go Bolts!) and has 2 goals and 6 assists in 11 games. Â Even though he didn’t play here long, he was still a Sabre, so good luck to him and the Lightning, they have quite the test waiting for them.
Dwayne Roloson – Yepp he was a Sabre for 2 seasons too, he was the Dominator’s back-up. Â He’s pretty hot going into the series with Boston, hopefully he can channel what he had in the Washington series and give the Bolts a fighting chance.
