Day Three of our FanSided journey brings us to a team many caniacs despise…the Buffalo Sabres. Many of you know I accepted and lost a wager to Tim Redinger of Sabre Noise last season. However, it did not deter me from engaging in another bet  this year.

The Sabres and Canes danced four times in 2010-11 and the results were split down the middle. Carolina won two, including a shutout and overtime victory. Buffalo also won two, including an extra inning win, but they didn’t manage a shutout. You can’t blame them, I mean, there is only one Cam Ward.

You will get Cardiac Cane’s season preview and predictions on Monday, September 5th. I don’t want to steal any attention away from the dear Sabres, so before Tim starts crying, here is your preview on the Sabres

It doesn’t seem like that long ago that we were writing a eulogy for the 2010-2011 Buffalo Sabres, and here we are writing the preview for the next year.  How much has changed?  Everything.  It started with a culture change, and now from the locker room out, the Buffalo Sabres enter next year as the first full season with a truly committed ownership group that is determined to not only bring a championship to the city of Buffalo, but to create a hockey nirvana in the Nickel City.

The culture change shock was felt immediately when Terry Pegula took over the team last February.  The Buffalo Sabres were already surging up the standings after a subpar first half of the year.  Remember the smiles on the faces of the Sabres Alumni on Fan Appreciation night when there was more Blue and Gold heart in the downtown Buffalo area since the last game at the Aud?
