Back from Vacation

I always decide to pick the wrong week to go on vacation. Free agent week. Thankfully, the phone stayed quieter this summer as compared to last summer. The Sabres made their big move on the fourth by sending Bernier to Vancouver and then turning around and picking up Craig Rivet from the San Jose Sharks. This is the move that we have been waiting for in picking up a solid defensemen for the next few years.

In terms of the Bandits, they were also creating their own fireworks this week in the Sting Dispersal Draft picking up defenseman Greg Hinman in the first round and then subsequently sending him to Edmonton for a third round pick in the 2008 Draft. This is not a bad move for the Bandits because defense is not an issue here and most of the major players from the Sting had already been taken by the time the Bandits picked. The next major draft should be the expansion draft for the Blazers. The Bandits can decide to hold 10 runners and 2 goalies or 13 runners and 1 goalie for this draft and the list of protected players should be coming soon.

Finally, the Bucky Gleason post has been updated so head on over and check it out.
