08:23 AM ET 08.22 | For many, Buffalo's Stanley Cup run is a far too distant a memory. The Sabres made half-baked attempts to win, so long as they broke even on the balance sheet. Well, times have changed. The Sabres were aggressive in the offseason and added veteran defensemen Robyn Regehr and Christian Ehrhoff and forward Ville Leino. ... Let's face it, [Terry Pegula] is the gift that keeps on giving. He spent some $8 million on the dressing room alone, another $5 million or so buying the Rochester Americans. They're adding scouts and tweaking operations. One way to solve their salary cap problems is having players in training camp duke it out for roster spots, making them that much stronger and deeper.

Peace Bridge has too long of a wait, because of all the trucks. Go to the Rainbow bridge or Queenston.

Then head up to Toronto, where the true winners are.

... to the hockey HOF. Tickets cost $17.50 Cdn (less for seniors and children and those under 3 get in for free).

I get in free because I am an employee of MLSE, which allows me to get into all Toronto tourist attractions for free!

Yeah, you're probably right. I'm just tired. Got into the office an hour earlier than normal, and it is Monday...

The world doesn't revolve around you, your team or your city, Argos.

I thought Galileo proved a long time ago that the entire universe revolves around Toronto?

Even if he did, I still wouldn't want to trade places with you. I like it here.

No, it does. It really does.

You two compare notes while I get ready for another work week far away from the alleged center of the universe.

Well I think I may be moving away from the centre of the universe too, at least for a bit. Got a job offer from a guy I went to University with, pays a lot more than my current job. But has a down side, I would have to work in Austria for 6-months from February to July. If I take it, I would miss the Leafs winning the Cup this June...

I here Hawaii is nice, but nothing like the centre of the universe.

Another down side, Windsor, Detroit, and Hamilton are also close.

Don't remind me, I have to go to Buffalo next week and may end up there this week as well.

Might not be a bad move to make? Austria may win the Cup before Toronto. But seriously, good luck whatever you decide to do.
