Chaos eve

Well, here we are again, less than 24 hours away from the most chaotic day of the NHL season -- the opening of free agency. It's the day when anything can happen, as the last few years have shown:

*Teams can disintegrate before your very eyes, just like in Buffalo in 2007 when Chris Drury and Daniel Briere left town.

*No-name players with questionable skills can become multimillionaires, like Jeff Finger in 2008.

*Teams can swoop in unexpectedly and deliver a 12-year deal to someone it seemed was never on their radar, like Chicago did in 2009 with Marian Hossa.

What will 2010 deliver? We'll find out beginning at noon Thursday. Not that you need the prompting, but as always we'll be live here on Sabres Edge all day with continuous updates, polls and chatter. See you then.
