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 […]


Sabres and NHL Thoughts by @mack10zie

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. Good for the city of Buffalo greenlighting Freezer Queen and disregarding the nonsense excuses of preservationists to keep Buffalo backward. […]

The Case for the Sabres Taking a Forward over Defense at 8 by @evancdent

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 […]


Flashback Recap: Sabres vs. Hurricanes 2006 by @LukeWachob

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 […]


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 […]


Your No Stress Sabres Guide to the NHL Lottery by @evancdent

The Sabres come into Saturday’s draft lottery slotted for the eighth overall pick after a nice end of the season run propelled them out of the basement. With the new theoretically tank-proof draft rules in place – the first three picks are all decided by the lottery, meaning the last place team could drop to fourth pick […]


Flashback recap: Sabres vs. Flyers 2006 by @LukeWachob

Buffalo Bills fans don’t debate when their glory days were. Going to 4 straight Super Bowls isn’t something you argue with. It’s not so obvious for the Sabres, but if you asked me, the best chance they ever had to win the Stanley Cup was not either of their finals appearances in 1975 or 1999. […]


Is It October Yet? By @BradleyGelber

With only three games remaining in the Sabres 2015-2016 season, I am already beginning to look forward to next season. We’ve been fed the “Next Chapter” slogan by the Sabres organization for several years now. It was essentially a catchy way of saying “hang on tight cause things are going to suck for a long […]


The Next Sabres Season Needs a Goathead Game by @LukeWachob

In the summer of 1996, my mom took me and my brother downtown to the brand new Marine Midland Arena to see the Buffalo Sabres unveil new jerseys*. They were, to put it mildly, a departure from the kits that had defined the team since its 1970 debut. Gone was the gorgeous blue-and-gold, the leaping […]

The 5 best records in Buffalo sports history by @mack10zie

We are now in the deadest of dead periods for Buffalo Sports. The NFL season is over, and the draft is still a month away, the Sabres are not going to the playoffs, and the trade deadline has passed, and all the Yankees, Mets, Blue Jays fans aren’t even paying attention yet. This seems like […]
