    Nelson recalled

    Perhaps he's been playing hurt for a while.

    Playoffs! Do you think we make it?

    It's all up to the defense.

    Like that second line.

    Sheary - Why are so many eager to trade him?

    Talented players can be less productive and viewed as trade options if they haven't been placed in optimal (for them) situations, i.e. utilized with players that best mesh with them. Also, early on Sheary was gaining familiarity with a new organization, new city, and new group of teammates. The fact that he's been producing better of late should put trade discussion on hold, despite the approaching trade deadline. We have larger concerns right now, including improving defensive schemes and overall coaching considerations.

    All Hail Erod

    Always liked him but Erod liking the net also works for me.

    "We've got to be tougher to play against." Phil Housley

    But Housley's skill set doesn't necessarily mean he fully understands other aspects of the game. Just like Lindy being rather solid in the defensive end as a player but not understanding how to coach power play, which was longtime problem for him.

    Who is the next Sabre voted off the Island?

    Quite true.

    Gilbert Perreault had many off nights. Don't take it too hard.

    IQ at the coaching level is inherent. It's difficult to change and thus convey smarts when necessary. Phil was quite an offensive defenseman; he wasn't a cover guy. Are any of his assistants truly defense oriented?

    Perhaps it's like mad science. You keep perfecting the formula until it's either optimal or blows up.

    Nice balance. Let's see how it goes.

    Phil Housley should be fired.

    Hutton may very well be wearing down, i.e. showing the effects of previously being a back-up and now being asked to carry the load. Perhaps more starts for Ullmark would help both of them.

    Are the Sabres damaging players?

    Poor coaching obviously damages players. The jury I'm on regarding Housley is close to a verdict, and it's not a positive one.
