For the first time in many years, the Sabres can be talked about as serious playoff contenders. Though it will take some big steps from certain players, the Sabres definitely have the core talent in place to move up the standings. As they begin training camp, here are the biggest questions that they’ll have to […]
Here we go again. Our beloved Buffalo sports are back in a state of chaos after the Friday firing of Bills 2nd year Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman.
While we were all focusing on the Bills, fretting about Sammy Watkins’ season-ending/actually-just-a-pain-tolerance-issue injury and preparing our dissertations on whether the Tyrod Taylor contract is already mistake, hockey had the gall to start up again. That’s right, even though it’s mid-September, there’s serious hockey to be played – the World Cup of Hockey is […]
The Jimmy Vesey saga came to a close today when the 23 year old free agent signed with the New York Rangers. The Buffalo Sabres, who had traded a 3rd round pick to Nashville for exclusive rights to negotiate with the college hockey MVP (until August 15), were left with nothing to show for their […]
If you have decided to save your sanity and have #loggedoff twitter during these slow, slow, summer sports months, you might have missed that Evander Kane was arrested (and given a perp walk) following an incident at the esteemed Buffalo bae Bottoms Up, resulting in a misdemeanor trespassing charges (probably reentering the bar after getting […]
With the acquisition via FA of Kyle Okposo from the New York Islanders to the Sabres, I wanted to get a local person’s view of the player coming in. I am beyond grateful that Dan Saraceni of Light House Hockey, the co-editor of SB Nation’s Isles blog took the time to answer the questions […]

When the Sabres traded with Florida for Dmitry Kulikov, I wanted to get some insight into the player and what Sabres’ fans should look forward to. Up stepped the fine folks at JC and
Here are all the news that’s fit to print/type for the week of July 29th:
So, if you’re reading this, you’re probably wondering WHAT HOT TAKE AM I OFFERING TODAY: Well, I haven’t written in awhile, so I have lots of things to say: Good for Cleveland for winning. Good for the city of Buffalo greenlighting Freezer Queen and disregarding the nonsense excuses of preservationists to keep Buffalo backward. […]
In just under a week, the Sabres will be on the clock at the 2016 draft, and this year sees them at a critical inflection point under Tim Murray. While the Sabres took a step in the right direction last year, they still finished well out of the playoff race. Murray has finished the easiest […]
When Believeland came out on ESPN’s 30 for 30 series, we talked both on twitter and here on the site about the idea of how you’d react to a Cleveland franchise winning a championship before a Buffalo team did. Some folks were not a fan of it at all; others figured that opened the door, […]
As we start to enter into this quiet period of Bills and Sabres-dom, we’re making some fun changes and taking some chances here at Buffalo Wins. In addition to the regular coverage of the teams and any of the issues that may arise, we’re also going to be make a bit of a blogging “stand” […]
This is part 3 of 3 in a series remembering the playoff run of the 2006 Buffalo Sabres. Read part 1 here and part 2 here. Last time, our heroes got a big monkey off their back by eliminating the division champion Ottawa Senators in 5 games. Jason Pominville’s series-winning overtime goal had RJ yelling […]
After the Leafs won the draft lottery, it was fair for Sabres fans to take a little break from thinking about the team. Besides some of the Sabres playing for their respective countries in the World Championships, not much has been going on – the team resigned Johan Larsson, renamed their arena (welcome to KeyBank […]
