    Retired Coast Guard and retired hockey referee. Play this game 2-3x weekly, and watch every Sabres game available on DirecTV. My wife and I have THREE pugs. I'm also a professional uncle no kids (PUNK). Nephew Ryan Kuhn plays on Buffalo Jr. Sabres and has D1 committment to Niagara in '15.
  1. It doesn't get played enough to bother anyone.
  2. Correction: 1. Eichel. 2. Dahlin. 3. Olafsson. 4. Reinhart. 5. Sabretooth.
  3. "Eyn gonna tell ya ... " I cringe every time I hear him say that.
  4. Way back when I was DCSabres (lived outside DC) and the 05-06 Sabres' season started: Posted October 9, 2005 He couldn't get it out because the Senator next to him chopped his stick in half. Should've been a penalty. Not saying Lydman has shown me anything thus far, but not getting that puck out on the 2nd try was a result of his sticking being snapped in two by a slash. You could see Campbell coming over to the ref on the play and yelling about it, and then Briere talking to McCreary at the following face-off about it. I saw a lot more hooking NOT getting called tonight than I saw in the first two games. I fear that the new rules are going to go away and clutching and grabbing will return. I hope I'm wrong.
  5. Haha! We can now refer to a player as having End-Stage Moulson's disease.
  6. The Sabres are too slow all over the ice. Watch other teams fly, then watch our guys skate in the mud. Dahlin is a beautiful skater, but very slow. Overall team speed is lacking in my opinion.
  7. Just LTIR him already. Like, for the rest of his contract. Another $hitty gift left for us by Tim Murray.
  8. Looked bad. I hate seeing that for him - he's been fantastic at both ends of the ice. I do think that Asplund looked pretty good with Jack and Sam in 68's absence, though.
  9. Inky Inky Inky - DVR it and watch in the evening. Skip the commercials and icing delays too!
  10. Set up a VPN between your house and your parents' house. Make your parents' house your gateway. Boom, you're "In Buffalo." Will cost you some equipment on each end, and perhaps will need higher speeds on each ISP account, but it would work. Would probably be cheaper and less hassle to get IPTV, Area 51 perhaps, to have EVERYTHING. The only thing I don't like is there is not yet a DVR for IPTV that you can set ahead of time. (That I know of).
  11. You forgot to mention that other thing we do in our parents' basements ...
  12. I always knew Skinner was a good goal scored, but only watched him when he played against the Sabres. Having watched him for 9 games now, I am very impressed with his grit, determination, puck handling, and especially his skating. He has wowed me may times already in this young season. You don't let players like this leave your organization. Okposo is too slow for the NHL anymore. He's a boat anchor hanging around JBOT's neck.
