A blog about the Sabres and the Bandits. We will try to give both equal time, but I'm not promising anything.

The Knighthawks lose Scott Evans for Season
Not only have the Knighthawks lost John Grant Jr. for the season but they announced yesterday that they have also lost Scott Evans for the season as well. Evans will be out for the season with an ACL injury.
This hurts the Knighthawks in the way that their first and second ranked goal scorers are going to be on the bench for the 2009 season. Of the 197 goals that the Knighthawks scored, 91 were scored by Grant and Evans. That accounts for 46% of the total goals scored. With the signing of Gait, it may help in the scoring department, but after being out of the league and not playing full time for the past three years how much production can you get out Gait.
In what is going to be a competitive Eastern Conference, the Knighthawks just might miss the playoffs again.
