Hockey’s Back! The Buffalo Wins World Cup of Hockey Preview by @evancdent

  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 Vesey Trade Was Still The Right Decision by @LukeWachob

The Jimmy Vesey saga came to a close today when the 23 year old free agent signed with the New York Rangers.

The Evander Kane Problem by @evancdent

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 […]


Kyle Okposo Q n A with @cultureoflosing of @LHHockey

  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 […]

While the original intent of this column was to be a Sabres post-draft wrap-up, the crazy day that was yesterday means we will expand this column a bot to discuss not only the Sabres, but the three big transactions from yesterday.

The NHL draft and beyond for the Buffalo Sabres by @husaria

    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.

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 […]

One Fan(n)’s Opinion by @rdotdeuce: What Cleveland’s Win Meant For Me

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, […]

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.

Four Potential Sabres Targets to watch in the Conference Finals by @evancdent

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 […]
