Joe asked me a couple of days ago if I wanted to write about the Patrick Kane story. My initial thought upon reading this request was, “Hell no.” Rich and famous professional athlete, hometown hero, rape accusations… This is and will continue to be a nightmare of a story that ultimately makes us hate all […]
There’s no doubt that Tim Murray has put a definitive stamp on the Buffalo Sabres roster in the year and a half that he’s been on the job. He’s managed to proceed with an aggressive pragmatism that has kept the Sabres active on the trade front while maintaining a strong foundation through the draft.
As a 25 year old I am still considered “young” by most accounts. Like most adults, I work, live on my own, pay my own bills, but a couple of years ago that wasn’t the case. Even after college I moved back in with my parents & in many ways avoided growing up for as […]
When I think of the current state of Buffalo, I think of the word “renaissance.” Canalside and the HarborCenter have made downtown Buffalo the place to be. Loft style apartments converted from old warehouses are booming & hotels & restaurants are going up left & right. Young people are sticking around and some are actually moving […]
Yesterday we had the reaction from the Ottawa side with the trade both teams had on Friday. Today we got Ryan Murphy from Mile High Hockey to dish the dirt on the Sabres/Avs deal. Enjoy and tell a friend. How do you feel about the trade?
I already went over how I felt about Friday’s Sabres dealings. Now is the time to see what type of players the Sabres got with interviewing the writers who covered them. I should have the reaction to the Colorado deal tomorrow, but for today we got Graeme Nichols from the Sens site The 6th Sens […]
It is good to be alive. It is good to be a Sabres fan. Maybe I sound like a front runner, but everything that went down yesterday was a lot of fun and really made me come around to what the Sabres are doing. Oh, right…I’m a Sabres fan and when they make good news, […]
I’ve been a huge proponent of the Sabres’ aggressive rebuilding plans and a huge fan of Tim Murray. But it’s easy to feel good about a team that’s lying in wait. It’s like cutting back on your expenses and watching your bank account grow: a little painful, maybe, but the future becomes full of possibility. […]
Pressure. It mostly develops when something comes along where the hype to turn around your team or company starts on the outset and everyone is looking at those to deliver on those promises of change. The spotlight is on you and in same cases, being under the spotlight withers those into nothing. Its no different than […]
With the NHL Combine in the rearview mirror, players, teams & fans can now look ahead to the actual Draft. With the Combine having taken place right here in Buffalo, many people made the multi-day event all about Jack Eichel, or for short “Jacker.” The media did it’s best to get an answer out of […]
There were many perks to moving out of my parents’ house to share a place with several of my buddies back during the summer of 2010. Most of the perks were obvious – I could now drink with my friends in the comfort of home any time I wanted and at least have somewhat of […]
I will make this quick since I am at work and slammed. (Don’t tell my bosses) 1) I dig the hiring. In fact, I view it the same as if the Sabres were able to nail Babcock. I think both Bylsma and Babcock had their obvious positives in terms of playoff runs. While you can […]
Yeah, I don’t feel its the end of the world or anything like that. I still think players and those who acquire them are more vital in the NHL than coaching. I mean, coaches get fired constantly in the league even if they get their teams to the playoffs. You could question whether Babcock won […]
While most of us were spending time with our mothers on Sunday, the Sabres were busy trying to recruit their next “team father.” With that, Twitter went absolutely wild with excitement over the possibility of one of the most decorated coaches in the NHL shuffling off to Buffalo. However not everyone in the Twitterverse was […]
The 2014-15 season was like no other in Sabres history as Buffalo’s rebuild plunged the team into another last place season as they pushed to secure the right to draft either Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel. Media narratives on tanking and the need to pick first piled on game after game of poorly played […]
