Off-season opens up a lot of free time. Some fans may take up knitting or join a book club. I love the movies, and since I am such a movie buff, I thought I would bring the following films to your attention. Did you know our many of our Canes had roles in famous flicks?

Eric Staal: What the hell is this?
Tuomo Ruutu: It’s a Finnish message. It means the Sabres sleeps with the fishes.
[Tim Gleason to Jamie McBain]
Gleason: I do believe Jim Rutherford, my GM, your boss, told you to take ME out and do WHATEVER I WANTED. Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good.
[Bryan Allen to Kyle Lawson]
Allen: Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?
