“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, […]
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.
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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Tim Murray dropped a bombshell at the GM meetings when he told Pierre LeBrun that he wants another first round selection in the upcoming draft and that he’s willing to take on salary in order to accomplish that goal.
A few weeks back, I was chatting with someone who hails from Queens and is a huge Rangers fan. She was talking to me about how excited she was about the Blueshirts going deep into the playoffs and I really didn’t feel like hearing any of it. In fact, I told her I was rooting […]
Here we are… Another year of Stanley Cup Playoffs & another year of Sabres fans watching from the sidelines. But fear not hockey fanatics, all is not lost! Our local sports writers and talk show hosts have got it covered! You see, they will continue to drone on and on about Patrick Kane… BECAUSE HE’S […]
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.
Well, thank God that’s over. The burning Viking funeral that was the 2013-14 Buffalo Sabres season finally was extinguished on Sunday night as the Sabres closed the season fittingly with another loss, giving them a record of 21-51-10, good for 52 points and the worst record by far in the league. The Sabres’ 51 losses […]
Greetings people of Earth. I'm Joe and I'm just trying to make this mailbag a thing on the site. I'm doing it every other week and pretty much will take on any question. This week I talk Bills free agency, Walking Dead, NFL Draft, Sabres in FA, Rocky dream match and the meaning of life. […]
Remember last year when the importance of faceoffs or how we should cheer at the F'N Center was the rage on Twitter? Ah, how those were the days. Those have been replaced by the never-ending topics on tanking. It is a topic that has just been hanging around for months and just when you think […]
@FrozenNotes. CO: This was a trade that most fans in Buffalo understood was coming. So while the shock value was somewhat decreased, it’s still tough to see the face of your franchise moved along with the current captain. What was the reaction like in St. Louis when it became clear that Miller and Ott would […]
