I'll be chatting today from home at 1 p.m. Plenty of stuff to talk about, including the abrupt end of this year's heroic run to eighth place by the Sabres. What do you think? Were injuries a valid excuse for them missing the playoffs? After five years with a single playoff series victory, are Ruff and Regier safe? I'll talk to you at 1 o'clock. I'll bring my fastball, which is more than I can say for Michael Pineda.
