Ode to a Traded Player

Your time with us was far too brief
We wish you needn't part
We'll miss your smiles, we'll miss your frowns
But you're always in our heart

You're moving on, the deadline past
We knew this day may come
Yet part of you in us will last
You'll always be our chum

Your lanky frame a familiar sight
Your accent strong and proud
You never backed down from a fight
You made us cheer out loud

But now you're off to Buffalo
We wish you wouldn't leave
The best of luck to you my friend
We'll try hard not to grieve

Farewell, dear friend - we'll miss you so.

Timo Helbling

Oh, man, so awesome...

Wait, what? Who is this refering to again? =] Don't toy with my emotions like that!
