No one in here in the Roost will be claiming “the die is cast” but any news is good news at this point.
Issuing qualifying offers for five players is important but in the grand scheme of things only shows a progression towards the most significant day in recent Sabres history: July 1st.
Briere and Drury are the two most important players on this team, and there is still a chance we will have neither come September. So with this in mind, any piece of news about this team becomes that much more important. I know every time my homepage loads I tense up when scrolling over the NHL news.
The good news is that today it showed progress and not rumors of LA or God knows where. Next time I may not be so lucky.
10 days, folks.
