Stop Convincing Yourselves the Sabres Won’t Finish Last by @mmigliore

I can’t wait for this all to be over. I’m not just talking about this month of February, which is about to break a record for the coldest month on record in Buffalo and seems like has lasted about 60 days. I’m talking about this 2014-15 Buffalo Sabres season. Granted, this has been one of […]

Tank watch: 46 days by @LukeWachob

  Just 46 days remain in the 2014-2015 NHL season, and Sabres fans have never been more desperate to run out the clock. Can the team finish what it started two years ago and end the season in last place, guaranteeing an opportunity to draft either Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel? Or will our McEichel […]


Trade route might unearth the answer in net for Buffalo by @2ITB_Buffalo

With the lottery balls still left to be pulled, there are very few positions in the Sabres organization that have an immediate need to be addressed for both the short and long-term. In fact, you could argue that the Sabres’ pipeline is well stocked at nearly every position. The one area that needs attention, particularly […]


Why watch the Sabres suck when you can take their word for it?

One of my favorite comedy movies growing up was Tommy Boy with Chris Farley and David Spade. There were so many 1-liners in that move that even 20 years later, it’s still a comedy classic. One of my favorite lines in the movie was about how Chris Farley would always screw up his dad’s line […]


Second Take with @BradleyGelber – Players Embracing The Tank?

Last week Sam Reinhart went on record saying “”I’ll secretly be rooting that he (McDavid) will be coming to the Sabres.” At first I thought, “ya, who isn’t?” But then I got to really thinking about it & it began to bother me more & more… Actual players on the Sabres are now embracing the […]


The Top 5 Chants From The Ol’ Aud by @ScottyMCSS   As we sit and stew (silently, oh so silently) at the FNC over our rebuilding product on the ice, it’s a good time to revisit a time when our voices were loud, and our butts not so hopelessly stuck to our seats. I bring to you then, in no particular order, the top […]


Another Three Sabres Bite the Dust by @LukeWachob

Tim Murray sank the Buffalo Sabres to new depths yesterday with a pair of trades that could alter the course of hockey history. It’s not because of the players involved – although they were certainly big names – but because, now, there might not be any team in the NHL capable of catching the Sabres […]


@2ITB_Buffalo: Q&A about Evander Kane with @Jetstreampod Tim Murray really swung for the fences today, executing a major blockbuster trade and acquiring a pair of NHL players who slot in well for the future of the team. The centerpiece of the trade was Evander Kane, a former 30-goal scorer who has tremendous upside. I took some time to chat with Travis […]


Analyzing GMTM’s First Big Swing by @realbrigang

   The Buffalo Sabres have traded to get Evander Kane.  I’ve been waiting for that to sink in completely and it just refuses to.  In the last few years, we’ve seen a lot of large trades that were, to one extent or another, fait accompli, and rumors (or maybe just hopes) of blockbuster trades that […]

. @3rdmanin: Hasek gets the banner he deserves

As you go through life, there’s always moments where you take a figurative step backwards and say to yourself, “Man, where did the time go?” Tonight will be one of them. Sabres legend Dominik Hasek will stand and watch as a banner with his name and famous number, 39, rises to the rafters of First Niagara Center. […]

Sabres midseason Tank Awards by @lukewachob

The Sabres are 41 games into the 2014-2015 NHL season, which means it’s time to hand out some midyear awards. Get ready for CONTROVERSY. MVP – Most Valuable Person – Darcy Regier

Making a case that there’s no case for Ted Nolan by @3rdmanin

For most fans, there isn’t much to like about this current Buffalo Sabres team. They’re not good. They lose. They lose a lot. But there’s one guy who many fans embrace, longing for the days of hard-working blue-collar hockey, who seems to try real hard in spite of it all: Ted Nolan. Ted Nolan, the […]


@2ITB_Buffalo: Backups help contribute to Sabres inspiring run

Things are going well at One Seymour H Knox III Plaza these days. The Sabres have won 10 of their last 13 games and has done so with a mix of tremendous goaltending and scoring from their top line. Tyler Ennis was just named the NHL’s first star of the week after picking up five […]


Coping without the Sabres tank job by @LukeWachob

The Sabres are 9 points ahead of the last-place Edmonton Oilers. They are 4 points behind the Boston Bruins. We might as well say it now: The Tank is dead. Long live The Tank. I’ve been a vocal advocate of the Sabres’ apparently-deliberate strategy of tanking to get top draft picks in 2014 and 2015. […]
