  1. It doesn't help that the Yankees (8 hours away) have a dedicated network carried on our WNY cable, and the Blue Jays (1 1/2-2 hours away) are not carried locally. I'm a WNY Blue Jays fan and I can only watch a handful of games a year without paying for MLB.tv Same reason there were a ton of Braves fans a generation ago - TBS/TNT carried almost all of their games.
  2. Yeah this is a prep trade for something else IMO. This is a solid over-ager in the AHL to allow us to backfill depth if needed.
  3. 24 yr old center with 2 years of NHL experience. He's an RFA this year. Has played all the games the last 2 years in the NHL, except for recently where he was DTD with an injury.
  4. I can't imagine how much harder it would be to care if I was out-of-market and had to pay extra to watch the games. I will always say the Sabres are my team when asked, but I'm to the point where I'm 50/50 to even tune in on game nights. It's the same reason I barely post here anymore, even though I love the community here. The Sabres are an embarrassingly poorly run organization.
  5. *Conversation with my wife, I say do we bother to check the score of the game* Her: I haven't looked yet, so you might as well check Me: Turns to MSG... intermission show says down 3-1 after one. Together: Well at least they got one. *changes channel* We've come to the point of total apathy. Congrats Terry.
  6. It's refreshing that the Bills have (lately) been demonstrating that they generally understand position values. Gone are the days when we draft CJ Spiller in the 1st round.
  7. I have so many questions... first of which is WhoTF is buying 50 items at the dollar tree?!? I think our max is maybe 4 items around Christmas time when you need wrapping paper/labels/etc. Also, you should have white trash retaliated with a parking lot shank. 😇
  8. I don't know about you, but that looks like a roster that can *checks standings math* rattle off a 120 point pace over the rest of the year to squeak into the playoffs. Get hyped.
  9. I wouldn't even be confident betting that outcome consistently if it were the Bruins or the Capitals, let alone our Sabres.
  10. I'll respectfully disagree. We started the season with Sobokta on the second line and no clear role/direction for the bottom 9 forwards. That's a team construction/GM problem. We started the year with *squints* 5? good forwards and one of them was a rookie that played a half season and they were relying on him for 1st line minutes. Surprises line Oloffson and Ullmark should take a team from good to great not from terrible to watchable.
  11. I came here to make this point, so thank you for beating me to it 👍 When we start calculating what it would take to make the playoffs in terms of win streaks and point totals that equate to the best team in the league, the playoffs are officially toast. We haven't even approached escaping the bottom 1/3rd of the league in a decade, let alone top 16. That's with having a top 10 player in the league this year and multiple top 5 draft picks. It's an especially impressive level of incompetence.
  12. My first time back on board in months and i'm already breaking hearts.
  13. Until they make a trade for a #2 center and finally have enough (good) forwards to make logical line combinations, I don't have much faith that this team has any chance of making a meaningful playoff run. Even with Jack playing out of his mind.
  14. I'll still continue to be part of the generation that says "Kobe!" before shooting anything at a hoop/basket/garbage can.
  15. Wife and I caught The Hate U Give on HBO last night as we always try to check the movies that are leaving at the end of the month to make sure we don't miss a good one. It was really excellent story about the challenges of living in a poor black neighborhood and how drugs, fear, and wealth privilege all play a huge part in the opportunities available to kids in that area. The central conflict was focused on police brutality, but there were more story arcs to follow as you got into it. I'd recommend it if you still haven't cancelled HBO from the GOT days...
