First thing I thought of when I saw New Town Bakery was this post.

I was ok with Girgensons being in the all star game, each team had to have a representative and last season Zegmus and Ennis where by far the best Sabres players, so Zegmus was likely going to be going to the All Star game anyways. Zegmus actually had a really good year last year putting up decent offensive stats on a really bad offensive team and was one of the toughest players to play against on the Sabres last year, he was one of gritty leaders of the team. This year his offensive has just disappeared, but I guess that comes along with being put into a more shutdown/checking role now that Eichel, O'Reilly, Kane and Reinhart are on the team.

Maybe its because I'm a Sabres fan, but Girgensons being at the all star game wasn't as glarring as the other examples given each team needed a representative. I'm not a fan of that rule, they should just name the players having the best season regardless if each team has a representative.

Yeah, I wasn't familiar with this guy. I just took a quick look at his stats.
1st rounder, pretty decent numbers. Doesn't look like a plug or enforcer.
I don't see how he's comparable to John Scott.


Girgensons has more points in his rookie season than Scott does in his entire career.

I'm there on occasion. They really do wear jerseys on game days. Super nice people and the buns are legit. Deluxe steamed bun and spring rolls are my fav.

EDIT: LOL I remember reading that story about New Town. I only ever get pastries from the front. If I'm sitting down for food, I like The Boss a bit better. New Town has better pastries though.

Goaltending is the sole reason why we're even contending for a wildcard spot. Well, that and the whole Pacific Division is a mess

Seems like this year, only one is ever clicking. When our offense is scoring, we can't stop the puck. When we can't buy a goal, goaltending stands on its head.
