Pain in My Soul

By S(h)ara

No, I'm not talking about the fact that Anne and I got to see the Sabres make history on Saturday when they set a franchise record by losing 9 in a row. No, I'm not talking about the fact that Anne and I committed Sabres blasphemy by saying we missed a certain forward who's initials are Danny Briere.

This is much worse.

Anne and I are lucky enough to have a contact at the arena to feed us rumors and free beer. However, this rumor burns my soul. Rends my heart in two. My all-time favorite player, two-time All-Star and ladies man of SoHo is perhaps going to be traded to the Blackhawks.

Yeah, that noise you just heard was the sound of my heart breaking in two.

Why can we not keep good players in Buffalo? Why? And why must we trade my favorite Sabre who also happens to be a bitchin' defenseman? Hello? He's been voted into the All-Star game two years in a row, posted a career-high 42 assists and 48 points last season (he's at 25 and 29 respectively, for this season) and he's ranked 5th among defensemen for assists. AND WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TRADING HIM!!! Darcy, what have you been smoking lately? If we keep Kalinin and get rid of Soupy I am going to be ROYALLY pissed, not in the least because I blew 20 bucks on a Soupy t-shirt that may very well be useless after this year.
I hate trade deadlines. They make me want to throw a temper tantrum, because my favorite players always get traded.
SOUPY DON'T LEAVE!!!! WE NEED YOU! (And, uh, I'm just a little in love with you, I don't care if Bucky Gleason called you a "skating tomato".)
