I <333 this picture.

I <3 this picture for so many reasons.

Hey friends! Sorry for the gap in podcasts, but we’re back today with what I think was a pretty enjoyable show.

I was joined by Scott Lewis (who you should follow on Twitter) to start, and we discussed:

* Some great Brian Burke quotes

* The Buffalo Sabres front office moves

* Nazem Kadri the Rat

* Steven Stamkos’ injury

* Nail Yakupov and Dallas Eakins

* Proposed rule changes at the GM meetings

* And much more

Sabres/Leafs correspondent Joe Yerdon of NHL.com and ProHockeyTalk then joined me to get into the Sabres nitty-gritty, specifically:

* Why now?

* What’s the Nolan’s “interim” tag?

* What’s Terry Pegula’s deal?

And more.
