Well, that was an interesting week. We see line shuffling, Miller chased in less than 7 minutes, Enroth holding the line for a comeback try, but ultimately still losing at home to the Flyers. Kaleta gets suspended 4 games, and Corey Tropp is up to take his spot in the lineup. Ready your Tropp-ic [...]
(hey, if they are going to blame calls for Enroth on blogs, might as well make it official!)
Your feelings on Jhonas Enroth:
I think he’s good in small doses (62%, 8 Votes) I truly, honestly, deeply feel he’s better than Miller (31%, 4 Votes) I like messing with people so I always advocate for the backup (8%, 1 Votes)
Miller is clearly better (0%, 0 Votes)
Total Voters: 13
Meant to be tongue-in-cheek, as we all know Miller is the guy. Just curious.
The Columbus Blue Jackets come in for a visit tonight at the First Niagara Center, coming off their first win of the season. It was the first game back for James Wisniewski after his long suspension from the Shan-hammer. The Sabres, of course, are still looking for their first win at the FNC, but [...]
Despite the quick start, last night’s tilt against the Lightning turned into the typical tough loss. A couple of goals against off your own defenseman’s skate, a couple of other guys have a rough outing, and the end result is a 4-3 loss. Vanek and Boyes opened the scoring early, and Gerbe made it [...]
There used to be a vocal minority of Miller detractors, and one of their favorite songs to sing was “Miller never steals games!”. And while the rest of us know that this isn’t the first game he’s stolen, it’s one of the most obvious. The Sabres slept-walked through the first and most of the [...]
I only got to see bits and pieces of the Sabres games in Europe, since I was at work for one of them, but you can’t ask for much more than what they did. Two wins, including one after a terrible night of travel. Contributions from Ehrhoff and Leino, Thomas Vanek doing his Atlas [...]
I haven’t felt compelled to post much of anything this preseason, as you may have noticed. A touch of snark at the Leafs here, a bit of whimsy about Shanny’s player discipline for head-hunting there. Beyond that though, nada. I think there’s a good reason…I’m satisfied. For the first time in a while, I [...]
Hey, more awesome Sabres news! According to the venerable Bob McKenzie over at TSN, Tyler Myers (along with the Islanders’ John Tavares) is very close to signing a 6 yr contract extension, worth around $5.5mil per year. If true (and if there’s anyone out there I’d trust for this, It’s Bob McKenzie) that’s a [...]
With a little distance from the Sabres’ playoff elimination, it’s time to look at what players are must-keep for next year, and who can go. Things are changed, with the Pegula era entering it’s first offseason. We don’t know how trades are going to go, if he wants an RFA, whether he truly likes [...]
I will be attending tonight’s game (and possibly some of the Party in the Plaza) so if anyone wants to meet up, let me know.
A lot of noise is being made about the fact that Buffalo has never rallied from being down 2 games to 1 in a playoff series. I am not [...]
