Hello all 2,000+ NYC Bills (and Sabres) fans!
On the same weekend where our Buffalo Bills secured what is hopefully our QB of the future (and a stud linebacker for years to come, and Kyle Williams replacement), the Sabres won the #1 OVERALL PICK in the NHL Draft Lottery! They are expected to use the pick to select phenom Rasmus Dahlin, an insanely great defenseman from Sweden. (and if they don’t, I fear Buffalo will burn to the ground)
It’s said he’s a generational talent with elite potential. Here’s nice little writeup/video on him:
With the excitement around this pick, we’ve been asked by Sabres fans in the area to throw a draft party similar to what we do with the NFL so folks can get together and celebrate it.
You’re damn right we will, so here we go….
On Friday, June 22nd the NHL Draft kicks off at 7pm. From 2PM-5PM for those with Summer Fridays or who just want to get an early start, McFadden’s will be offering $5 drafts, ½ priced specialty cocktails, and $5 glasses of Rose. (I’d pay to see some dude in a Rob Ray jersey drinking Rose)
From 5PM to 9PM, the Dahlin Special kicks in with $4 Labatt Blue drafts, $15 Blue pitchers, and 50 cent wings (orders of 10/20).
Come on down to McFadden’s and watch us select the best defenseman seen in years, all are welcome!
Swede, Swede, Swede!!!
