Be greatful for your "greats"

I'm sure everyone who has a subscription to The Hockey News knows a lot about hockey.

They should also know that Buffalo has been doing absolutely nothing this season. The first thing that comes to mind is Daniel Briere and Chris Drury.

Born and raised in Buffalo, I love my hockey team and I will always love my hockey team, but that doesn't mean I will love the general manager of my hockey team. I have absolutely no idea what Darcy Regier was thinking and I don't think he does either.

I still don't believe that this is reality, and I am telling myself that Chris and Danny are on the long-term injured reserve list. Watching my team struggle with every fiber of their being, I just want to tell all of you die-hard fans out there that you should always appreciate every single one your team’s players.

Let me tell you from experience: Anything can happen. You won't ever believe that they can get rid of those amazing players, until those amazing players aren't there anymore.

Emma Berntheizel, Buffalo, N.Y.
