  1. Watching the youtube stream....crazy to see how into the fans are compared to...now or the last decade.
  2. Another season for the Amerks without a playoff win...
  3. It gives the Sabres a change to make round 2? Sign me up!
  4. Man, watching those videos brings me back. This team needs to figure its ***** out ASAP.
  5. Wasn't the one game he dressed in whichever arena doesn't have room for the back-up goalie on the bench so they're forced to sit all alone in the zamboni entrace?
  6. Last year was essentially his rookie year (even though his stats show he played 20 games in the 15-16 season??? i have zero recollection of that, but, to be fair i think we've all tried to block that out) and I always thought people were being a bit hard on Linus, forgetting that he was indeed a rookie (since he's been a part of the organization for years now). Looks like in 37 games last year he had a .905% and 3.11 GAA This year, in 34 games he's posting a .911% and 2.69 GAA, so he appears to be trending upwards and the eye test tells me he's more in control and collected in the crease. I'm expecting him to continue to improve. How much? Who knows, goalies are ***** weirdos. If I'm Botts, I'm brining in a 3rd goalie to camp, someone who used to be a bona-fide starter but is not moving into a back-up role at this stage in his career (think Ryan Miller in Anaheim) to provide some competition. We then waive Hutton and send him to Rochester. Then, when an injury inevitibly strikes you can call up Hutton so you have a better option than Jonas Johannson. Not ideal to be burning that kind of money on a goalie in Rochester, but that's what happens when you sign a career back-up to a 3 year contract...another big whiff for JBOTT. In summation, to answer your question of "how good is linus ullmark?" , I'd say he hasn't reached his full potential and we'll see him get better.
  7. That Dahlin attempt was awesome. Love it. Kahun had a nice move as well, I'd rather have him over Sheary& Erod 100 times over. Never lost faith in the team for a second. I we win out, just gotta win the next 13 straight and maybe have a shot at playing meaningful hockey in April
  8. Not sure if I agree, i think a real 2C is more important than replacing Hutton at this point. Ullmark is servicable, and we should waive Hutton and bring in a veteran back-up who used to be a starter but is at the tail end of his career who can be a good mentor for Linus (think what JBot did with Hutton originally, but someone who, you know, was an actual starter at one point). If we send Hutton to Rochester, it then means we have a semi-capable goaltender to call up as a back-up when we hit an injury at the goalie position. Special Teams also needs a huge upgrade. I'm hoping Steve Smith does not come back.
  9. Looking at the remaining 14 games....I'll be shocked if this team can get 4 more wins. I'm also curious how long this losing streak will run through. Can we hit 10 games? Will they lose out? Just how far will they drop in the standings? I think it's impossible it "catch" Detroit, but it's looking like they could finish anywhere 2nd last - 4th last. If they somehow land the lottery and get the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd pick, do you take that pick or try to flip it for immediate help at 2C?
  10. I'd take JBOTS cap management and propensity for ***** depth forwards and overstocked D, GMTMs asset management and Darcy's over valuing of his own players.
  11. As many minutes as he had goals in the first half of the season.
  12. How many total points will Sheary & EROD put up tonight? I'm guessing at least 3.
  13. I'll be surprised if the Sabres can win 4 of their remaining 16 games. Looking at the schedule, there's no way they even sniff 80 points. But hey, we almost had meaningful March games, so that's progress.
  14. It's amazing that team that had 6 or 7 pending UFAs, whose not qualifying for the playoffs has, what, a conditional 4th round pick and the rights to Kahun after the season ends? #assetmanagement
