  2. SABRES 0311

    Around the NHL 2018-2019

    Speculation on some topics is expected. I'm sure most people would recognize those who helped or made a difference in their lives. Unless Huck is wrong it seems Lehner is acknowledging JBott but not TM. The poster took the information he had and commented on his interpretation. Maybe he's wrong maybe he's right.

    The even randomer thread

    I can't say for sure whether Vegas is the most overrated city in the country, but it has to be up there. What a disappointment.

    Phil Housley should be fired.

    I've definitely been wondering for awhile about the quality of that work that Nightengale and crew do. It's impossible to know, of course, but the team has regularly made decisions that cut against the publicly available data, and it's a trend that spans 3 GMs and...5 coaches? It's impossible to really assess without knowing the internal decision making dynamics, but it's definitely worth thinking about.

    Democratic Presidential hopefuls and your thoughts

    Other than maybe Biden are there any other Dem candidates we should look out for?

    Phil Housley should be fired.

    Are you still on about Lindey? Only in Buffalo is 16 years not long enough to prove oneself.

    I saw a bit of Kane against Boston the other night and he hasn't changed a bit, he's just on a better team, but he's still the one trick selfish pony he has always been. Skinner is a far better player for us on Jack's wing. Could we use a Ferland type on the other side? Absolutely.

    Does this team miss Berglund more than we realize?

    No argument there. Just saying he was supposed to be adequate while Mittlestadt developed.

    I take back everything I ever said about wanting to know more about player injuries.

    Trade: Ryan O'Reilly to St Louis Blues

    Every game that goes by really does blast a bigger hole in the "trading O'Reilly had to happen because the room" position.

    Phil Housley should be fired.

    Just listening to Housley's post-game PC now. He has been very careful the last couple games to stress that "effort" has been there but things just aren't going our way. He's trying to frame things in terms of bad puck luck or that sort of thing, which is misleading. I think he definitely feels the heat and is trying to stress that it's not an effort problem, b/c an effort problem is ultimately a coaching problem. This will all get worse before it gets better.

    Phil Housley should be fired.

    Remember, firing Wowie would actually be a huge risk for JBotts. If he does fire him, and the rest of the season continues the current trend, guess who's head rolls next? Even if Housley is a (or the) problem, JBott better be pretty damn sure that someone else can right the ship before letting Phil go. Is Jason feeling lucky?

    A token power forward isn't going to resolve this team's toughness problem. They play soft top to bottom and that is because the people who evaluate talent within this organization do not value toughness. Don't expect much to change for that reason.
  15. Kruppstahl

    Phil Housley should be fired.

    Then maybe the people who compiled the roster need to go. Housley should be replaced, but I agree he is not the sole problem, or even that his replacement will improve. He still needs to go however. He's not a very good HC.
  16. Screw that guy; if he thinks this came down to bounces, he needs to be fired tonight. Not sure Pegula realizes things are going horribly. I can't stand that guy; he's big time creepy; luckily I tend to watch on DVR and don't have to see him too much. I'm in all for this, but how the hell do you do it with 1-way guaranteed contracts!? They have ruined hockey and it's been this way for a long time. That's just a function of the Sabres being in town; not a big draw as you say. There are always a lot of empty seats in that building, but tonight was unusual (I live in S. FL and watch a ton of Panthers games). I wouldn't expect a big step forward next year from Dahlin or Mittelstadt necessarily. They should progress but suggesting next season will be a key breakthrough season for either is silly. We need a lot more than 2 additional pieces too. The entire D needs to be turned over, with exception of Dahlin; but he will need 3-4 years to really hit on all cylinders. As someone said upthread, we have like 4, maybe 5 guys you want to build around. The rest, including HC and GM can be replaced as they are all expendable.
  17. Sooooo, starting this early had no effect on the outcome, also PA's game is starting to slip, we were high on him during the streak but he's come back down to earth. He was last seen muttering to himself in the corner "we've gotta grind these ***** out"
  18. Floyd Smith took the Sabres to the Cup finals. But that was 1975. Rick Dudley had a winning record in his 3 seasons but couldn’t get them past the first round. Lindy Ruff also got them to the finals.

    Does this team miss Berglund more than we realize?

    Except he was not a 2nd line guy in St Louis, he was not a consistent player at all. He frustrated fans with disappearing acts for long stretches. When he was playing well he was pretty good, it just was a consistency thing. We saw that here.
  20. Here is some perspective. My oldest is going to graduate next year. Unless one of our teams does something next year which is unlikely, he would of gone from 1st grade to Graduation never seeing either Buffalo major sports team with a playoff game/series, let alone a championship. I would imagine we have a lost generation. That is astonishingly bad. We must have the worst sports teams of all time.
  21. North Buffalo

    Around the NHL 2018-2019

    Murray is an Alchy, he would have to do something about himself... just saying JBOTs seems like his much more level headed... good enough remains to be seen but better than Murray.

    Trade: Ryan O'Reilly to St Louis Blues

    Who could blame him?
  23. Indabuff

    Phil Housley should be fired.

    The team really does look lost. Isn't that a problem for the beginning of the season and not the end?
  24. nfreeman

    Phil Housley should be fired.

    I said something similar in the GDT, but I think if we’re not past the point of no return, we are really getting close. The team looks completely lost. This can’t be how it is every night for the rest of the season.
  25. 1st goal in the third was his responsibility... PS Don't post during the game.
  26. ROR OT winner against Toronto tonight. 11 wins in a row for the Blues.
  27. True it's not all doom and gloom but going from first in the league (briefly, I know) to a few stairs short of the basement is an absolute kick in the dick. At least the days are getting longer...
