This week, we’ll recap the latest games, read listener feedback, and review the standings and upcoming schedule as usual. Then, for our main topic, we’ll discuss how the Sabres should move forward now that the playoffs are basically off the table.

We have three scoring lines I love and a checking line I love. The player I scream at the most can’t suit up because of concussion symptoms (despite my hostility towards Hecht, I wish him no long-term effects from his head injury and hope he returns quickly) and suddenly I’d put our backup goalie against any backup goalie in the league. I’m sure there will be plenty to complain about as the season progresses, there always is, but it just seems there will be less than in recent years. Will they blow a few two goal leads in the third period? Certainly, as that remains my bug-a-boo about the season, especially with the fifth and sixth game against Philadelphia still fresh on our minds. But right now I can’t find anything to be negative about. I can’t wait to take a half day tomorrow and head to the bar with friends to watch them debut in Helsinki. I can’t wait to head to Pucktoberfest at First Niagara Center to drink German beer and root them on against the Kings in Berlin Saturday (“I once sexually assaulted a horse in Berlin” and other Euro Trip quotes that haven’t been used since 2005 are likely to be used after a few beers). I can’t wait for the blistering cold walks into the F’n Center in January or the overtime wins, complete with a full bar of twenty-somethings excitedly cheering and high fiving one another. I look forward to walking to the next bar in my Ehrhoff jersey, dissecting what had transpired hours earlier. I look forward to meeting some of the fellow bloggers on the “Sabres Game” Twitter list who kept me company during those games in vacant Vermont bars as I sat alone in my Mogilny jersey. I look forward to teaching my girlfriend, a transplant from Elmira, the nuances of the game and the excitement which she has only seen from the outside looking in. I love that Connolly is gone, that Teppo is a coach and that I only have to drive to Rochester to see Kassian, Foligno and Mcnabb.

As the 2010-2011 campaign heads into it's final two games, I find it impossible to call this season anything other than the greatest regular season in recent memory, at least it has been in my nearly two-decades long run of following this team. When I say "greatest," I think you all know what I mean. This has nothing to do with wins and losses, although those certainly play a role, it has to do with the ride, with the storylines, with characters revealing themselves as something we thought they would never be, with heroic characters entering the stage at exactly the right time, the time when we needed them most. Consider the following: -The team started the season 3-9-2 and found itself not only at the bottom of the standings, but at the bottom of ESPN.com's power rankings. I remember the line after the teams position was "Oh-No-Buff-a-lo."

The Sabres had a decent week, claiming the 7th place spot in the Eastern Conference while going 2-2 against Pittsburgh, Boston, Philly, and Ottawa.

The Sabres had only two games this week and went 1-1 against Pittsburgh and Toronto. However, the biggest news of the week was that the Sabres officially announced the sale of the team to Terry Pegula. In our main discussion, we look at back at the Golisano era and look ahead the new ownership.

The Sabres went 2-0 this week, posting shutouts in games against Columbus and Ottawa. We also got some very interesting news this week indicating the Sabres might be sold, which is the topic for our main discussion.

Which leads us to the current stale team at HSBC Arena. Now Pegula hasn't met with the other NHL owners (presumably next week), and an announcement isn't expected til near New Year's at the earliest. There will be plenty of time to speculate what's going to happen personnel-wise once the keys to the owner's box are handed over. But one thing is for certain: if the change in attitude makes winning paramount, that will likely clash directly with Darcy Regier. The inability to trade prospects, the habit of holding onto players who we all know will never become what the organization hoped they will, the consistent overvaluing of the players on the ice in trade negotiations, the inability to understand the term "addition by subtraction," of being loyal to the wrong guys and disloyal to the wrong guys needs to stop. Claiming Tim Connolly is a top 20 center in the NHL, that needs to stop. Crying at the end of the season about wanting to bring a cup to Buffalo then making Rob Niedermayer your big addition, that cannot stand. Drew Stafford should have made his KHL debut long ago, along with Patrick Lalime. Tim Connolly...okay let me espouse on Connolly:
