Bernier’s Debut For Sabres? “Excellent!”

Thursday, 28 February, 2008

My Sabres’ newest member, Steve Bernier, had two goals and an assist in the win yesterday. He scored two goals on his first two shots! Sweet. Being on a new team is going to spark Bernier to impress his new teammates, and to try extra hard to help the team make the playoffs. Having Bernier on the team and competing for a big role in games is going to make all of the other players play harder.

Bernier is a young and improving player, so he’ll turn into a first or second line guy in a short amount of time. Being on another good team will really improve his stats also. We’ll see if he was worth giving up their best defenseman, Brian Campbell, for him (they were going to lose Campbell anyway, so getting anything for him was good in a way).

There’s no doubt the Sabres can score goals, especially when you score 8 goals a couple of times in a season. If they can limit the scoring of other teams more than they are right now, I believe they’ll be able to ease into the playoffs.

Jason Pominville is the most underrated player on the team, and doesn’t get enough credit for the points he’s producing. He’ll probably end up with a career-high points total at the end of the season. Pominville is close to eclipsing his highest mark of 68 points last season with plenty of games left.
