Weekend Odds and Ends

After a fairly uneventful Sabres weekend which saw them lose both games, once in overtime and once in regulation, there really isn't much to talk about. The Sabres just didn't seem to have that extra step against the Bruins and penalties killed them against the Thrashers. So, I'm moving on.

The NHL has released the top 10 sellers on for the month of October.

Top 10 Selling Items On (October 1 - 31, 2008)
1. 2008 Hockey Fights Cancer Tie
2. Buffalo Sabres Third Jersey
3. Sidney Crosby: On the Ice and Beyond DVD
4. NY Rangers Team Color Premier Jersey
5. Edmonton Oilers Third Jersey
6. Washington Capitals Team Color Premier Jersey
7. Montreal Canadiens Team Color Premier Jersey
8. Philadelphia Flyers Team Color Premier Jersey
9. 2007-08 Detroit Red Wings Stanley Cup Championship DVD
10. 2008 NHL Reflections Book

Buffalo fans are ridiculously crazy about the new third jersey so it makes sense that it would be a high seller. But the second most sold thing on the internet shows that we are crazier than to be expected. The only thing we lost to was the Hockey Fights Cancer Tie which the NHL has been pimping out like crazy.

On a Bills front, which we don't talk about here much, there is a petition going around on the internet trying to convince the Bills and the Rogers Center to keep the dome open for the Miami game on the 7th. The reason they want the dome open is to try and neutralize the neutrality that Toronto is going to be. If they can make the Dolphins cold, then it has more of a home-field advantage. Here is the petition if you are interested in signing it.

Finally, our thoughts and prayers go out to Buffalo News writer Tom Borelli. Borelli is the Bandits beat writer for the News and he had an serious accident covering high-school football at All-High Stadium. We here at Dueling Sabres hope that Borelli makes a full recovery and that he can be well enough to see the Bandits raise the banner on January 3rd.
