The Buffalo Sabres roster is set, and judging from the lines at practice, there are two players in the top 6 that will have a ton of focus on them: Drew Stafford and Ville Leino. Stafford gets the first crack at being the other winger with Hodgson and Vanek, while Leino goes with Ott [...]
The Buffalo Sabres are opening training camp today, with veteran players reporting for their physicals and testing. I always imagine ‘testing’ as Patrick Kaleta slouched in a desk, face all screwed up trying to answer a multiple choice question. Anyway, as camp opens, there seem to be more questions than answers for fans that [...]
With the deadline tomorrow, and the deals already made, I’ve been talking to my friends about the Sabres more – who should go, who should stay to build around, that sort of thing. One thing that keeps coming up for a few of them is how Buffalo is not hard enough to play against [...]
I’ve been debating writing something about the blogger meet and greet with Ted Black the other day, then Ryan over at the Roost went ahead and wrote just about what I would have, right down to the Galactic Senate pod bit. So read that, first, if you haven’t. How do I feel? Well, it’s [...]
I am blogging from the press box tonight, so this post will be updated after each period (and maybe once or twice before the game) with my thoughts as I have them.

It wasn’t always pretty, but the Buffalo Sabres pulled away from the Philadelphia Flyers and won 5-2 today at First Niagara Center. Thomas Vanek was in on every goal, scoring 2 of them, and Steve Ott scored in his first game. Tyler Myers and Cody Hodgson had the other tallies.
It felt like Buffalo [...]
It sure was fun to type that title, and it’ll be even better to watch the game. Let’s put the lockout in the rear view and enjoy the Sabres being back on the ice. I won’t be at the game, though I will still be trying to get into the press box several times [...]
If you’re like me, and you tuned out the NHL a bit since the end of last year thanks to lockout shenanigans, you may be a bit fuzzy on some of the details surrounding the Sabres as they currently stand. Here’s a handy list you can refer to, to help with your water cooler [...]
The Sabres have made some moves. They usually do this time of year, especially since Pegula bought the team. The theme so far has been to get tougher. John Scott, a feared fighter (murdersaurus!) who will probably see limited action, was the first signing of FA for Buffalo. More intriguing is the trade, sending [...]
