Ready for the whirlwind

It's going to be a crazy few days in Sabreland and across the NHL.

First, the Sabres conduct their first real, get-ready-to-play-a-game practice this morning. Then it's travel time to Pittsburgh. Tuesday, it's sure to be a welcome-home parade for Sidney Crosby in the Steel City, followed by the Sabres playing the Penguins.

Wednesday will be wilder. It's trade deadline day, and trades have already started with Pittsburgh reportedly acquiring Florida defenseman Jordan Leopold. It's probably Ryan Miller's first appearance back in Buffalo after being the best goalie in the Olympics. Then, he gets his own ovation from the fans when the Sabres host Washington. Oh, and Alexander Ovechkin plays for the Caps.

Thursday will include a few hours of sleep. Hopefully.
