There were feeds to watch the non-televised game against the ducks on Tuesday, but the game didn’t matter for some very good reasons. The Sabres faced yet another backup goalie, and the Ducks were on game 5 in 7 days of a cross-country trip, so there was probably no way the starter was going [...]
Yes, I think it’s time to look at who has value to ‘sell’, after that effort this weekend. There is still time to recover, but it’s growing short. 49 games left, but only 30 points in the standings in the first 33. It took 88 to make 8th last year in the East, but [...]
I was going to create a photoshop involving Gaustad and laying eggs, but I think you all will fill in the visual much better than I could.
Back to back genuine shut-outs for Ryan Miller, that dude is back. He didn’t have to do much against Columbus who lost their focus pretty early, but [...]
First off, Craig Rivet is a healthy scratch again tonight, with Weber in his place. Most interesting is this bit from Lindy Ruff:
Mike hasn’t been in but we feel that it gives us a physical defenseman, a guy with some edge and we’re going to give him a shot
Physical defenseman is what [...]
We’ve got another Western conference foe in the building tonight, as LA is in town. They are coming off two straight losses, putting their road record to 4-4. Ryan Miller is likely to get both games, and Rivet is said to be making it back in the lineup (but not sure for who). Kaleta [...]
The Caps look to get revenge on the Sabres tonight at the Verizon Center, as Buffalo makes the trip down to Washington to face the Ovechkins. Did you know “that’s great” Derek Roy has 21 points, while Ovi has 25? I also wonder if we’ll see an NHL goalie this time around.
Gerbe is [...]
October record: 3-7-2
Overall record: 3-7-2
Buffalo came into the season with some expectations, as a playoff team from the year before with it’s ‘core’ intact (for better or worse). I felt that the changes that were made should at least be even swaps.
So what happened? Unfortunately, there’s quite a few things that have [...]
Buffalo is visiting Flyers for the first time tonight, with a 7:30pm game on everyone’s favorite channel, Versus. Buffalo is flying high after a resounding win on Saturday against the Kovy-less Devils. The boys are on the mend, with Shaone Morrisonn and Craig Rivet both practicing and Pominville steadily improving. Only Rivet *might* play [...]
With training camp less than a month away, and the Buffalo Sabres roster looking pretty much set, I thought now would be a good time to investigate the lines and defense pairings for the coming season. Starting up front:
Ennis – Connolly – Pominville Vanek – Roy – Stafford/McCormick? Gerbe – Gaustad – Kaleta [...]
This post is influenced by this post at Hockey Rhetoric, and also Pixar’s Ratatouille. I may ramble around a bit, but I want to get these thoughts down, and where better than right here on the new site?
My wife was surfing around the other day, trying to put something kid-friendly on the tube, [...]
