  1. My perspective is the Pegulas are (mostly) well meaning, but incompetent owners. I honestly think they dumb lucked their way into a winning formula for the Bills with Beane and McDermott. I don't have a lot of faith that if/when they need to replace either one of them they will do a good job. We need the equivalent front office for the Sabres and thus far haven't gotten it. I think they really want the Sabres to be a perennial playoff team and win multiple cups. They just don't know how to do it and have spent the last 10 years flailing. Early on it appeared the had too many cronies i
  2. First game back after all this time and it's NBCSN. 😞 Oh well, excited for some hockey. Go Sabres!
  3. I have Center Ice, but I still have to watch the NBC Sports Washington coverage whenever we play the Capitals. IIRC in years past games on ESPN+ didn't black out Center Ice, but this year could be different, or I could be wrong on that. The ESPN+ is pretty new. I don't recall ever missing a game because of it though.
  4. Haha. Nice. Real/die hard caps fans do exist, they are just a lot less common in my experience. I've lived/worked in the area for 15+ years and in that time I'd say (while being a hockey snob I guess) that I've only met 3 "real" Caps fans. Then there are a bunch of casual fans and a ton of bandwagoners. When I first moved here and the Caps were bad/only had Ovechkin the Sabres/Caps games were mostly Sabres fans. In more recent years, there are a decent number of Sabres fans since we tend to be everywhere. But to my point about the fanbase, I've worked with 2 other
  5. Living in Capital Country (hockey isn't nearly as popular here as in Buffalo, even with the recent Stanley Cup win) it's going to be weird being in the same division as the Capitals this season. I tend to follow the caps a bit, though never as closely as the Sabres. One of my co-workers is a pretty big Caps fan though. Most of rest are just bandwagoners if they are even aware of the Capitals at all. Like "yay we won the Cup". It also means a lot more games being forced to watch the non-MSG-B coverage. Personally I'm a fan of Joe Beninati, but I can't stand Craig Laughli
  6. I'd like to see him trade out one (or more) of our UFA forwards for some picks back. I don't expect we'll get any long term help beyond that with what we have to offer.
  7. I still care, but work has been busy which means time to discuss a team that started strong then seems to have fallen off a cliff is limited. I don't like to dwell on the bad. I thought we looked good on Sunday, but it was against Detroit. It was hard watching that one since it was in the middle of the NFL playoffs. I would watch a period then, switch back to football, then back to hockey, etc. But since I typically watch sports on a delay to skip commericals etc it worked out ok. Anyways Vegas will be a bigger challenge than Detroit. It'd be nice to get ba
  8. Yeah, while I'm glad to see the extension, I'd love to see something longer term. Or permanent. Apparently Indy was about to lose its contract (and other cities were trying to get it) but they were extended to 2021 last year: https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/2019/05/22/nfl-scouting-combine-indianapolis-events-shifted-television/1198030001/
  9. There is only so much he can do with all the bad contracts he inherited. I'm waiting to see how the team looks next year before calling for his head. He won't have the excuse of lack of cap space this summer.
  10. I'm hoping to keep my game attendance streaking going. Sabres have won the last 5 I've gone to, and the last game I was at started Jack on his consecutive game point streak with a 4 goal game. Then Im rushing my ass back to my buddy's place to pick up my car and head over to my cousin's for the Bills game. Let's get that double win today!
  11. Just reposting this here since they are showing it again tonight and I'm stuck with the Fliers coverage. I have center ice, not nhl.tv, but apparently you can activate nhl.tv with your cable provider by going to https://www.nhl.com/activate (thanks again nfreeman for the tip) And here is a link to the feed for the game: https://www.nhl.com/tv/2019020405/221-2003735/70130703#game=2019020405 You'll have to scroll around a bit, but there are 2 parts 1 just after the first and 1 just after the second period. There are markers to show when each period started so I just went back ab
  12. And for anyone else like me who wants to watch it that has NHL.tv or Center ice, I think this is the feed: https://www.nhl.com/tv/2019020405/221-2003735/70130703#game=2019020405 There are 2 parts just after the first and second periods.
  13. This looks to be where you have to go: https://www.nhl.com/activate
  14. Really? I didn't know that. I"ll have to look into that. I've debated switching over to nhl.tv, but I like to be able to DVR the games. That would make what I have the best of both worlds.
