Forget Ebola, Post Traumatic Sabres Syndrome Hits Home by @Buffalogal

As Nas said: You can hate me now. This post may not get a lot of warm and fuzzy reactions because of #embracethetank and the #onebuffalo launch. However, it may be an underrepresented representation of how a sector of the Sabres Fan population feels. We are burnt out. We have been trampled. We have been […]

@SabresStats: Setting The Tone

Remember when the Sabres started the 2006-07 season with 10 straight victories?  They outscored their opponents 49-23 in those 10 games.  They never looked back and rode that momentum all the way to the Presidents Cup.  That was a different team and a different time.  Only Drew Stafford and Patrick Kaleta (who only played 7 […]

The Sabres Tank Reloaded by @LukeWachob

You could say it’s a hard time to be a Buffalo sports fan. The Bills are gearing up for a sequel to the Kelly Holcomb/J.P. Losman QB controversy and the Sabres are coming off a historically poor season. Both have been rebuilding for years, but while we’re desperate to win, it still feels far away.

What We Need Here is a Little Brain Power by @mmigliore

One of the prevailing thoughts about the Bills and Sabres over the years has always been a perceived lack of talent. We always seem to be lacking a quarterback, a first-line center, a 40-goal scorer, a big receiving threat, a smooth, puck-moving defenseman or an absolute beast at middle linebacker.

@SabresStats Countdown to Hockey Recap

“Is it October yet?” That’s a popular refrain around my household this time of year.  The withdrawal of a summer without hockey is kicking in more and more as the pain of last season becomes more of a distant memory.  The hope of a new day is at the forefront for Sabres fans and that hope, […]

@2ITB_Buffalo: Q&A about Brendan Lemieux with @VeryBarrieColts

Buffalo’s selection of Sam Reinhart brought the expected media crush upon the club. Buffalo hadn’t picked as high as second overall since they drafted Pierre Turgeon first overall in 1987. However, it was Tim Murray’s first selection on day two of the draft that has been garnering quite a bit of attention.

Q&A about Sam Reinhart with a Kootenay Ice reporter

Not since Pierre Turgeon in 1987 had the Sabres selected this high in the NHL Draft. Sam Reinhart is going to be the future as he is currently the biggest log on the Sabres fire to get back into contending. I’d think it would behoove me to find out what we got with Reinart. So, […]

My take on Christian Ehrhoff getting bought out

At times, folks like myself have scoffed at the greed of professional sports. I’ve always wondered what the sports world would be like if contracts weren’t made public. If we didn’t know the money and terms, we couldn’t put a number value on players and we couldn’t complain that money was their main motivation. Imagine […]

@2ITB_Buffalo: Who poses a threat to Mission McDavid in 2015?

With the 2014 NHL Draft just a few days away, the Sabres will be making the second highest selection in franchise history that should serve as a major piece of their current rebuild. While the Sabres’ 30th place finish this year ensured them a top-two selection at the draft, the real prize sits atop the […]

My hot takes on the Sabres and the draft

Detached. That’s the best way I can describe how I feel about the Sabres right about now. This losing out for top picks has been such a major kick in the nuts because the hockey has been so bad.  I just can’t get into Baby Sabres or the “What if?” game of whether this or […]

Sticking up for Thomas Vanek and skilled players

Hypocrites! Hypocrites, all of you! Sabres fans are coming out of the woodwork to stand up for Thomas Vanek now that he’s a member of that hallowed club known as the “Sabres alumni”. When he was actually on the team, it was a different story.
