This isn’t about the Sabres, not directly, but about the cable television industry, which now exends into phone companies, the internet, and more. Most Buffalonians who follow the Sabres have heard that MSG might get dumped from Time Warner Cable after the end of the year (2 weeks) if the two parties don’t come [...]
Getting set up in the pressbox for tonight’s visit from Martin Biron and the New York Rangers. It’s the Sabres’ first game against the Rangers, and Jhonas Enroth gets the call after Miller played in the win last night. Leino comes back from his suspension, but Hecht (‘lower body’) and Corey Tropp (concussion) are [...]
In the end, the Sabres went higher-risk/high reward by picking Ville Leino over Brad Richards. Can Leino be a center again? He was very good in limited faceoff duty last year. He played the position until he was 23, so we have to hope it’s like riding a bike. Ville has to be happy [...]
The number you need to know is one. One point seperates the Buffalo Sabres from the playoffs. They can get the point themselves, either tonight or tomorrow night, or the Hurricanes or Rangers can hand it to them by losing, even in OT or the shootout.
Of course, the much more satisfying way to [...]
So, the Sabres scored 6 goals against the Islanders, and lost. Ryan Miller had a post-game meltdownafter a question from noted feces enthusiast John Vogl. A bad question, a worse answer after a horrible game. Buffalo is still in the driver’s seat as far as taking a playoff spot, but Ryan’s issues, whether mental, [...]
Jhonas Enroth dueled Marty Biron to a tie through regulation, but in the end lost 3-2, gaining Buffalo another point. 5 out of 6 isn’t bad, considering they’d gotten, what, 1 out of 10 before that? Now to see how they fare against stronger competition, and not fellow basement dwellers.
I know Vanek is [...]
I was camping this weekend, so I didn’t get to see any hockey or football, so I have no specific insight into any of the games. Looking at the results, I am very happy Buffalo was able to beat the Senators, which is really the only thing I wanted out of the weekend. Very [...]
The big discussion point today (thanks to this article over at Puck Daddy amongst other things) is credentials and access for hockey bloggers. The sticking point raised on the reference conference call is actually valid (why should someone have access to our locker room on the road when they are not welcome at home?), [...]
The NHL schedules come out at noon today, which is great, since they normally make us wait a few more weeks to plan potential road trips. The home openers were announced yesterday, so we know that Buffalo opens on the road at Ottawa Friday, October 8, and comes home for the Rangers on October [...]
