Are the Sabres awesome?

Clearly not at all. They couldn't even put the Flyers away when the Flyers scored more on the powerplay than you have in your entire life.
If you are talking about the sword, yes they are awesome.

On the other hand, if you are referring to the team of carpetbaggers led by Ryan Miller, the divorce-trash-talking-Danny-Briere-awesomeness-inspiring Kaleta, and that midget bitch, then no not at all.

They are out of the first round, they are on the golf course, and they resigned that horrible coach of yours to a multi-year, second-round-less contract.
