Ottawa Senators 3, Buffalo Sabres 1. 0-1-0 That was fun! Hockey is fun. After two brutal years of losing constantly and scoring never, we got a brief glimpse of the better world that lies ahead. Forget the stupid video review. Eichel and Kane scored. I saw it. We saw it. And we felt it. The […]
You wouldn’t think that the second-to-last game of an NHL regular season for a team that finished with just 54 points would be memorable. For Sabres fans, game 81 of the 2014-15 season was a little bit different. The Sabres finally secured last place in the league on the night of April 10 with a […]
There are a lot of new faces, and a few familiar faces, in Buffalo this fall. Tim Murray was hard at work in the offseason, bringing in big and small pieces alike. Some of them are past their prime but should provide good veteran leadership to a young Sabres core (see Legwand, David), and some […]
Joe: Chris, we are only a few days away from the Sabres season starting and since we now have legit expectations for a change that doesn’t involve wanting to lose, that means we may have a guy or two on this roster who may need a stellar season to save their butts because they are […]
Big moves this offseason by general manager Tim Murray, and of course the arrival of the generational talent named Jack Eichel, have Sabres fans talking big things this year. Is it warranted, or just overblown optimism? Improvement over the last two years is inevitable, but how far should we dare to dream? Will the additions of […]
Chris: We’re up to question 12 in our 20 question countdown to the Buffalo Sabres season. Today we tackle whether the Sabres will be buyers or sellers at the deadline and why. Joe, I’ll let you lead us off. Will Tim Murray be on a shopping spree at the deadline or will he be posting […]
Joe: Its time for lucky #13 with Chris and myself. Today, we are talking Tyler Ennis. Chris, correct me if I am wrong but is Ennis the longest tenured player on this team? That sounds crazy if that’s accurate since it seems like yesterday he was just a kid here. Well, this question isn’t about […]
Chris: OK Joey Bag of Donuts. It’s time for question 14 and what I want to know is how many games you seen Sam Reinhart playing in this year. Does he see more than 40 games in blue and gold?
Joe: Alright, we are at #15 of our pop quiz for the Sabres 2015/2016 season. Chris, we are all about the 1st line today as I think the Sabres have some nice options there to roll out a legit #1 line. Who do you want to see on that 1st line?
Chris: Ok Joe. We’re plugging along with our 20 Questions for the Sabres season and we have reached number 16! Are we on number 16? Whatever. My question to you is who will have the better season, Evander Kane or Ryan O’Reilly?
Joe: So question #17 goes with what the narrative for the season seems to be..and that’s how much will the Sabres improve? We already said 20 points should be doable as a team, but for this question, I want to go to the individuals who were here last year and see which one will improve […]
Chris: Question number three on our preseason run down will address the goaltending. Two new faces will be in the crease for the Sabres this year as trade deadline acquisition, Chad Johnson, will back up draft day acquisition, Robin Lehner.
Joe: Continuing our series of questions for the Sabres season, its time to tackle what the realistic expectations are for Jack Eichel, Chris, I think you can easily make the case that no player in Buffalo sports history has had as much expectations as Jack Eichel has with coming to the Sabres and having not […]
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.
