    well, looks like the Canes did pretty well at turning Pu into gold this season. I guess I was using the same code that Spock used in "Wrath of Khan" - hours can seem like days.....years can seem like months.

    The Klingon Proverb about revenge best served cold is always true in Buffalo since it's always cold there, haha.

    We all knew someone was gonna overpay for Skinner, and well, a team like Buffalo has to overpay more than most.

    (e.g. ten-year, $40 million for Christian Ehrhoff.) Haha. I haven't done the math, but Skinner's contract might end before Christian Ehrhoff's buyout is complete, lol.

    Looks like you were wrong!
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
