  1. This entire forum is over obsessed with Quinn playing center.
  2. They aren't trying to convert them to center. Rosen isn't even in NA for one. Quinn isn't going to be an NHL center. For the record, I HATE how Perfetti plays hockey. He plays with a major lack of pace.
  3. The point is have the Sabres fixed their drafting? Early signs point to probably. They focused on the MHL because they played a full season and they could get stats as well as video from there. In 2021 that makes a lot of sense and they went for high end skill and high end motors. Next year if they again ignore the center position I am more than happy to get on the "they can't draft wagon" to no playoffsville. Right now though I think I see signs they are starting (not quite there) but starting to understand some things about drafting. They want aggressive wingers, with shots, who fearless and relentless attack the center of the ice. Idk what they want from their centers but I truly believe that the absurd 2022 draft will help answer that question.
  4. If the Sabres had used every single pick from 2021 on centers, none of them would be in the AHL this season to help Quinn out. Just like there is a lack of wingers in the AHL to help anyone out. The team has drafted bad for years and being all pissed off because they didn't draft a bunch a centers is missing the point. Or you think Peterka, Poltapov, Kisakov, and Rosen were bad picks. Quinn at least we can reasonably argue should have been Rossi.
  5. GA's conclusion is based on his assumption that Quinn is being put at center because we don't have centers. I believe something different. Quinn is being played at center because they want him to get more touches with the puck and his 2way game is strong enough for him to succeed there at least in the AHL. It isn't a reaction to KA not drafting centers but to developing Quinn by giving him more puck control and responsibility. In 2020 Adams only drafted Quinn and Peterka in the first 3 rounds. In 2021 the draft was notably devoid of centers and outside of perhaps Raty, they didn't pass on any of note. As always I find the criticism of the 2020 draft somewhat legit (I would have taken Rossi) and of the 2021 draft, completely bizarre. We've had this debate though and we don't agree so there really is no point in another rehash. Yes it would have. Let's say they drafted 7 centers in 2021. None of them would be on the AHL team anyways. Your entire complaint rests on Quinn being taken over Rossi which is fine but stick to that. I do not believe Quinn is playing center because they don't have centers and they are forcing him into that spot. I think he is at center so he can get more touches and be the line driver in the AHL.
  6. We should just stop using BPA and thinking position doesn't impact that at all. Actually we should stop saying BPA at all because we have no idea what a team to team qualification is for that.
  7. Nikita Novikov is not on the same team as Kisakov. Novikov plays for Dynamo in the KHL currently (which is impressive for a just turned 18yr old defender). Kisakov plays in the MHL for Dynamo which is basically the difference between the OHL and the NHL. Russia has MLH, VHL, KHL in that order. Next years draft is loaded at center. It won't be an issue. Wright, Savoie, Lambert, Geekie, Cooley, Nazar, Hughes, etc...
  8. I can do you one better.
  9. You know, you're right. Anyone else think not going for it on those early 4th and short chances when Allen clearly wanted to was a mistake because it messed with his head?
  10. You realized the numbers I referenced were influenza? Because AGAIN, you said "We should ban all cars they kill significantly more people than infectious diseases every year. Walking only." Which as demonstrated is complete bull crap. Influenza alone makes it bs, let alone if we include COVID which apparently 600k Americans didn't die from. Maybe if you provided a single source of anything I wouldn't continually prove you wrong. Still waiting on you even address ANY of the counter points. Lol, at least I know to never read anything you ever post again.
  11. NHTSA 2020 deaths: 38,680 motor vehicle accidents. https://www.nhtsa.gov/press-releases/2020-fatality-data-show-increased-traffic-fatalities-during-pandemic 2019 there were 36,096 deaths https://www.iihs.org/topics/fatality-statistics/detail/state-by-state#:~:text=There were 33%2C244 fatal motor,per 100 million miles traveled. 2018-2019 Flu Season: 34,000 approximate deaths (because influenza deaths have to get estimated) 2017/2018: the year before was 61,000 influenza deaths. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/2017-2018.htm#table1 Comorbidity of vehicle accidents, didn't have a seatbelt, lets look at that, driving drunk, speed. If you can discount deaths due to Covid because someone was over 65 and had asthma than I should be able to discount crashes above 65mph or where a seatbelt wasn't involved. AND AGAIN for the kids in the back you said "We should ban all cars they kill significantly more people than infectious diseases every year. Walking only." which is more funny now because in those deaths by vehicle, is pedestrians and bicycles which clearly should now be excluded using your convoluted and deeply flawed logic. I used 1 single infectious disease, I didn't even do pneumonia which can be a comorbid factor in influenza deaths.
  12. And you have yet to provide a single source for anything you have said but please go on.
  13. If we have 5 defenders with 30 points, we are a playoff team
  14. ... literally what I said 2 posts up about butcher.
  15. What we spend this year does not matter. We aren't even at the cap floor currently. I don't care what Miller and Butcher or Pysyk do because none of them will be here next year.
  16. Covid deaths per 100k in the US source: https://www.statista.com/statistics/1109011/coronavirus-covid19-death-rates-us-by-state/ Motor Vehicles Deaths per 100k source: https://www.iihs.org/topics/fatality-statistics/detail/state-by-state#:~:text=There were 33%2C244 fatal motor,Columbia to 25.4 in Wyoming. Note I found updated numbers for motor vehicles... it is actually only 11 deaths per 100k
  17. Almost like the team barely drafted forwards in the last 5 years.
  18. I often find that ppl who don't empathize or sympathize with others are surprised when others still consider them human ppl.
  19. Guess Nfreeman shouldn't have closed the other thread and maybe... just maybe this conversation wouldn't be here. It could have stayed in that other thread and I could have happily ignored it while this thread gets Bills updates. Like that Gabe Davis is injured apparently. But I will be damned if I will let another nutbag stroll into here to downplay covid like triumph did. Welcome to the Rubicon.
  20. Where you going to move the goalposts next? I like how you keep changing, you are like a flip flopper who can only regurgitate the dumb talking points you probably heard on talk radio. "Let's rebalance that out over ten years"... lol what? You have to resort to this because your argument is a null and voided bs induced dumpster fire. Hell you should probably apologize for being so unbelievable wrong that it took me a whopping 2 seconds on google to prove it. Instead you reset the timeline to 10 year. Hell why don't we do 100 years, measles and typhoid fever used to kill millions of people, surely that is the disease we should focus on instead of Covid right? Oh wait, I forgot, some asshat scientists created a vaccine and now we don't have to deal with those anymore. Still if we "rebalance that over ten years" maybe it will equate. If you can't tell, the last few sentences are sarcasm to illustrate how shockingly awful your argument is, not to mention ignorant. Influenza kills about 25-60k ppl a year give or take... so that doesn't work either. Also you originally said "We should ban all cars they kill significantly more people than infectious diseases every year" and every infectious disease you have mentioned eclipses car deaths. Let alone if we just grouped all infectious disease together and compared it to car deaths either in 1 year or 20. What's next for you in the infectious disease pantheon? You are bound to find something eventually that falls below 12.4 per 100k. You are wrong and so mind numbingly stupid that your argument is "lets spread this out over ten years" ... how about we don't spread out this pandemic for another 10 years and ppl like you get the MOFO shot and stop spotting your lies all over the internet? How bout that? After 18 months the real pandemic is common sense apparently. Gonna start talking about "natural immunity" next because that is the buzzword bs of the week. Can't wait for the retort and also thanks Nfreeman for forcing this conversation into the Bills thread because you could not just let the other thread go. I could have easily ignored that thread, kind of like the religion thread. PS. at no point in here do I mention anything to do with politics.
  21. and then in March we can trade him for something useful
  22. This is called totally and utterly made up bull$#it that is supported by no facts whatsoever. 11.0 deaths per 100k ppl for car accident deaths Source: https://www.iihs.org/topics/fatality-statistics/detail/state-by-state#:~:text=There were 33%2C244 fatal motor,Columbia to 25.4 in Wyoming. 183.25 deaths per 100k ppl for COVID if you average all 50 States based on info from John Hopkins Source: https://www.statista.com/statistics/1109011/coronavirus-covid19-death-rates-us-by-state/
  23. What did the NFL do? We all know the Sabres suck.
  24. This seems like a really narrow lens to view this through. Almost like you thought the team would be good this year.
  25. I think he should be in Rochester this year and if you want him to play center ever you gotta do it then. Personally I don't worry either way because his 2 way game is very good.
