    the real midwest is west of Buffalo--where the humidity is waay higher and the summers hotter and the winters colder. just distinguishing KC,St Louis,Chicago from pittsburgh,Buffalo etc. I lived in iowa for a while--and that weather sucked.Both sumer and winter. The people were GREAT though.Loved them.

    that is a good point. More celebrities and bright lights for sure.==PS--slight correction---Toronto is more like 6.4 million and Buffalo's actual metro area is about 1.6 incl its contiguous southern ontario NF and St Catherines....-But most of the people I know from toronto arent all that impressed with Toronto.Big cities are a dime a dozen and are mostly a pain in the butt. I am thankful I live a bit outside the SF bay area. Now that area really has over 7 million people and its a trafficky overpriced nightmare. I lived there for years.Even when I was young it never seemed that wonderful.

    Glam factor??? what>??? accidentally running into a canadian rapper??? Yonge street just oozes with so much excitement?--its a myth those poor athletes not having their museum and vegan restaurant choices....--one thing--and its a big thing that does give toronto an advantage is the larger 'press'....But in this age that is becoming less important because of alternatives.

    You ever lived in the real midwest? I have. And while I love the people the summers are brutally humid and the winters brutally cold. I live in Cali now and am spoiled--But I think Buffalo summers are much better and the winters only slightly worse because of the lake effect snow.

    What can you do in Toronto that you cant do in Buffalo? They dont have concerts in Buffalo?? Dont have festivals? Dont have a symphony orchestra?(ok ok i realize we are talking young pro atletes here),,Dont have great restaurants? Dont have a nightlife? Dont have the same crappy weather?

    Phil Housley should be fired.

    We need tough veteran players at this point. This will never work out just adding skill guys to a team with a foundation of weaklings. Even the 80s Oilers had a bunch of very very tough players to go with their freakish amt of skill guys. Its OK to sign players in their 30s...then while we go out there and are competitive and hit people and dont back away in the defensive zone we can wait for Dahlin to keep improving and for Middlestadt to learn to do a pullup -Hiring some coach to improve the play of this roster isnt gonna help that much.Its a roster problem not a coaching problem.

    3 shut outs in a row? That's a trend!

    yeah lets blame this on Housley;););)...We have 4 good players on this team and the rest are AHL level skillwise and below that level re: toughness.

    Fandom dying by the day.....

    its not accurate --the 17 yrs ago- statement--.. they won a lot and were in the playoffs 4 times with 2 strong runs from 2002 to 2011 ..one losing season in that entire stretch

    Should we root for the Sabres to lose out?

    losing breeds losing. same solid teams are winners every year. like the sabres were before they were sold.
  12. i like it. No more ***** Sabres

    The sabres were a very good and respected franchise until about 8 yrs ago. They were consistent winners without these endless rebuilding scenarios.
  14. Oilers and sabres are making the same mistakes. We need to look at the bruins for what works in this league.
