It’s Casual Friday on Talking Buffalo Podcast and Patrick Moran is joined by friend and recurring guest Joe Yerdon to discuss the onslaught of moves the Buffalo Sabres have been involved in this week and of course one to this point that hasn’t happened as well as reaction to the start of Buffalo Bills training camp, a “Starting Five” draft of favorite Olympic sports and much more.

Training camp for the Buffalo Bills started this week and while there’s obviously not much to report about on-field stuff, there’s plenty of stuff to discuss off the field.  Joe has thoughts on general manager Brandon Beane’s press conference earlier this week, Cole Beasley’s statement about Covid vaccinations, two Bills offensive lineman missing the start of camp with Covid protocols and more.

Of course, it’s the Sabres that’ve made the big sports news in Buffalo of late, trading two star players away but still have Jack Eichel on the roster. Pat and Joe talk about how Jack’s injury treatment, some criticism levied at him by a former teammate and how they expect the situation to ultimately be resolved as well as thoughts on Linus Ullmark bolting for Boston.

In honor of the Summer Olympics going on in Tokyo, this week’s “Starting Five” has Joe and Pat drafting their favorite Olympics (summer or winter) sports.

Plus, Patrick talks about getting out to enjoy more things while the getting is still good in the Buffalo summer and much more. Follow Joe on Twitter @JoeYerdon.
