    Buffalo Bills 2018-2019

    Just to clarify, I’m not sure one way or the other just believe it’s hard to judge. I watch a lot of other games and see receivers routinely catch passes that I can’t remember a Bill catching. On top of that, there were at least four third down drops yesterday.

    Buffalo Bills 2018-2019

    Russel Groy Wyatt Teller Jordan Mills Charles Clay Zay Jones Isaiah McKenzie Robert Foster Chris Ivory This team could/should have 13 different players in their top 16 offensive players in the next year or two. I’m not sure how anyone can make a call on Allen while he’s playing with this group.

    Lineup 2019-2020

    A) don’t sleep on Malone B) if they want to compete with Toronto Casey has to make a quantum leap or needs to be third center. C) you all may laugh but Patrick Kane 2020 wouldn’t shock me.

    Kim Pegula - NHL Commissioner?

    Yeah, in all seriousness, I couldn’t see an owner assuming the mantle the way the positions have evolved. My “get” out of this is just how fast she has moved up the chain. A friend at the NHL office mentioned to me six months ago how respected she was and how people were already discussing how Lafontaine’s stock had taken a little hit because of his fractured relationship with her.

    Kim Pegula - NHL Commissioner?

    She’s mentioned in an article published on The Athletic. Someone will have to post link but I found this interesting. I once mentioned that Russ Brandon was on the NFL short list and of course he blew that up but I keep hearing how well respected Mrs. Pegula is now. Just thought it was interesting.

    The Salary Cap

    No way the league opts out. There will not be a lockout. Strike maybe.

    The Salary Cap

    So allow me some vindication, I took a lot of heat from some of this board’s most respected members when I suggested that the salary cap would approach $90 million by 2020. Well, they just announced its going to be somewhere near $83 million next year.

    Trade Speculation and Rumors 2018-19

    Speaking of the 1’s, and I know it’s much too early but with St. Louis above only LA in the overall standings, what were the conditions on that pick? I know it was lottery protected but can someone refresh my memory?
  10. I would like everyone who purchased a ticket to pm me so I can ask a question or two before issuing tickets.

    2018 - 2019 Sabres Prospects

    Three or four of the second rounders from that draft will be anything more then a JAG and likely only one will be a top 4 forward or a top 3 defender. I am not dismissing the value of depth and I don’t want to over simplify but it’s those top 8(4F, 3D, 1G) that drive the bus. The teams that contend are the ones that time it right with the top 8 joined by 3 or 4 ready to take over and 1 or 2 surprises. No matter how refined and detailed, numbers can only project and there is nothing I’ve seen yet that makes scouting an exact science. It’s educated guessing mixed in with a ton of luck.

    Only if you believe scouting is an exact science. It was a crappy draft, it’s why TM truedbti trade all three picks to grab Larkin. His stated draft philosophy was to swing for the fences after the first round. A second round pick in the NHL is akin to a 6th or 7th in the NFL. The only bad misses occur in first round. After that it’s slmist all luck.

    Montout’s the only guy that might be a difference maker. That draft will end up being amongst the worst ever.

    Check the rest of that draft. There have been almost no NHL production from the entire second round. On top of that, TM took over mid year and was forced to use whatever scouting department was left.
  15. Actually it is, I think. If you still want ticket, easiest way would be to send money to Eleven since two of tickets are in his name.
