A few quotes from Chris Bandura's blog on Sabres.com.
On the "Clarke MacArthur wearing a surgical mask" tidbit:
On the way down, Clarke MacArthur had to wear a surgical mask because he was a little under the weather and had missed practice earlier in the day. Steve Montador did as well, just to make him feel a little less alone.Aw Full Monty, what a teammate.
Then he addresses Pie's trade :(
I spoke with Dan later that night and he said how surprised he was that all the guys were downstairs to say goodbye. We gave him our own locker room tribute later the next day by sharing all our infamous Paille moments over the past few years at the morning skate.Hahahaha I would love love love to hear those stories.
When the game was over, the guys were gathered together around a television that was showing highlights of the Bruins game. When we all saw Danny pick up his assist on the Bruins game-winning goal against Nashville, all the guys cheered and gave him a loud team chant.
Once a part of the family, you’re always a part of the family.
Aw Pie :')
I enjoy that these features and blogs have allowed we fans to finally see that yes, the Buffalo Sabres have personalities and are actually, ya know, a team you can feel good about.
Treat him well, Beantown.
