    Sabres @ Stars, 1/30/2019, 8:30 PM ET

    Dahlin is gun-shy tonight.

    These guys can be beaten if Polak is in their top 6 D.

    Missed most of last night's game due to my son's hockey. Watching tonight. Keep that secondary scoring going. Dahlin with two more points to keep him in the Calder conversation (in Buffalo anyway) would be great. Let's go Buffalo!

    Sabres Practice Report 1/28/2019

    I don't like Okposo on PP1. He is not very creative, is not a net front presence and his shot is not elite. He is one of the few who will shoot a lot, but he telegraphs it and often gives the goalie a pretty easy save. I would also like Dahlin out there to have his creativity and another left handed shot. It's just me but I find 4 RH shots on a unit reduces options.

    Skinner Contract Watch

    Very few are "worth it" for 8 years but you hope for a bunny hill slope decline, not a Wile E. Coyote off of a cliff drop off. 8 years is the term it often takes to get these done. I see Skinner as a great skater and one of those guys that can keep his wheels, like a Marleau. I hope I'm right.

    Skinner Contract Watch

    Kane got $7 x 7 while missing a lot more games than Skinner and not being as prolific a scorer. Jeff's chemistry with Jack is obvious and they have had a look at him for a year, unlike signing Okposo, Moulson etc... in July, from another team.

    Portage and Main, 50 below... I used to live north of Thunder Bay and spent some time working around Hudson Bay. I don't miss those temperatures.

    Picks, Prospects, or Players???

    Coffey's game was pure speed on the rush, blowing around guys. The PP was deadly and you could get many points by being out there a few times per game. Rasmus is more of a slippery stickhandler in my opinion. If hides numbers are between Lidstrom and Bourque that would be great.

    Picks, Prospects, or Players???

    Potvin would be fine. Point a game guy for his career, 3 seasons over 90 points including one of 101.

    Oilers vs Sabres - who has the brighter future?

    One conversation with Skinner would give him the lowdown on the Sabres locker room. He's been in the league for 16 years, has 2 brothers that have played for a long time as well, these guys know a lot about NHL cities. He did not sign with Minnesota because they were the main contender, they offered good $$, a good role, 3 years and the opportunity to play "near" his hometown of Thunder Bay. If JBot thinks he can help he can go after him hard on July 1st. Someone will pay more than the Sabres should for a rental scenario.
