  1. I want to see their response to a bad 10 game stretch coupled with some injuries. If they can bounce back without falling into previous patterns, like taking the remainder of the season off, I'll buy in some more.
  2. It can't be discussed in the memorial thread so here goes...
  3. On another note, I'll never forget being so tired of watching the news coverage by mid-afternoon, that a buddy and I decided to go golfing. We first tried Beaver Island but all state parks had closed for the day. We ended up playing at Sheridan. It was really nice weather and the course was full of others who likewise needed a break from the insanity.
  4. Agreed. We haven't had the ability to consistently push back against opponents since 07ish. We have not been able match other teams' aggression, talent, desperation, physicality, etc. One of my favorite experiences with prior teams (mostly the ones wearing black goathead jerseys) was watching them escalate effort, intensity, and physicality to produce results. That's toughness to me...and I miss it dearly.
  5. This seems like a bad question, considering this is a discussion forum about the Buffalo Sabres. The Bills currently look like geniuses compared with how far the hockey team has fallen. I like Allen.
  6. I agree, to a point. Edmonton is an obvious example of a talent influx which has not translated into a winning club. I said this on another thread but the Kane - Faulk kerfuffle was really interesting. Faulk called him out big time. The team responded by beating CBus the following night. I have been a part of team process conversations, in my line of work, where an individual was called out for having a negative attitude and have seen the larger group respond by functioning better. Here's the thing - even if Kane is the biggest problem, which I assume he is, there remains a laundry list of other issues. It seems like, after yesterday's drubbing, that we have entered the trade deadline, where am I going phase of the season. I doubt we can expect to see any improvement until after the trade dust has settled. Even then, improvement will probably not be measurable in more victories. Botterill has his work cut out for him.
  7. I'm fascinated by this kerfuffle between Faulk and Kane. I'm further fascinated by the team's response tonight. Faulk is not exactly a team leader, which caught my attention initially. He calls out Kane in front of the team and they responded tonight. To me, this is some sort of unconscious vote by the team that Faulk was right. Is Evander Kane a team killer?
