    Brian Gionta has spoken critically of Eichel.  Not pinning all of the organization’s issues on him, but he has been critical.

    Petey has also been very harsh on him on ATW.

    He's quite an "over-actor"

    I would tell him to look closer at the Sabres / Leafs games, especially the outdoor game for the clues to why the Leafs are who they are....😜

    His “Dang-It” videos are fun to watch, though.

    Don’t watch this video. I know you are not going to want to watch this video.😀

    This was just freaking hilarious! He sure does know how to mix together Sam Kinison with Jermaine “Funnymaine” Johnson.

    All coaches are hired to be fired.  Isn't that the general rule in all pro sports.  Also how many coaches have every won a Cup with more than one team besides Bowman? The answer is 1 and that is Dick Irvin in the 1930's and 40's with Tor and Mon.   Ruff, Maurice and Vigneault all have 722 to 7823 wins and zero Cups.  

    Good coaches usually have to go through the carousel a few times before finding the right situation.  For example, Quenneville got his during his 3rd job, Trotz his second, Laviolette his second, and Sutter his 4th.  

    I guess Lou being Lou decided it was time to put his stamp on this version of the NYI.  Hard to question Lou given his track record.

    How true it is that all coaches are hired to be fired. Bum Phillips would totally agree with you.

    Florida damn lucky tonight. Just shows you how a series can turn in a few moments. 

    Except the Predators didn't play all that physical in the series. I think it's clear they pretty much lost their will to live when Saros got injured. They knew they had no real shot without him and played like that for the most part. Yes, their fill in goalie played well, but that wasn't enough to reignite their desire. 

    Also, to your ongoing thesis, yes, you need the talent, everybody knows that, but not just the talent, and the two are not mutually exclusive. Don't know why you can't get that. 

    Just like the 98-99 Sabres. They worked their tails off to get to the Cup final.

    I love the way he referenced and worded the VGK game. Instead of giving “that other guy” any further free advertising, he lauded TOG’s replacements and their performance.

    No need to further let TOG live rent free in their heads (or ours). They’ve clearly moved on from him, and are looking to build with their current roster/chemistry.

    This is exciting news, as long as he is replaced. 

    There are some local people off the top of my head who would probably kill for the gig (Joe Yerdon or Bill Hoppe), but I hope it is a fresh voice from out of town.  

    A clone of Maddy Glab, perhaps?

    I am unapologetically rooting for TO.

    ***** Tampa.

    Turn in your Sabres fan card.

    I hope you’re saying that in jest. @SwampDhas been on this board a very long time, and I’d go to bat for him.

    Tampa really bowing to the pressure here. They certainly don’t look like the team that beat the leafs 8-1 last week.

    Yup. TOR has scored 2 ESGs, a PPG, and a SHG. That’s brutal!

    Allegedly from the Sharks game last night, read the first letter of each word.  


    I forgot to mention that there was some other harpy out there who was shooting her mouth off on Facebook a few weeks ago. To which I said that she, “can’t understand necessary truths”.

    Sorry to all the ladies out there…

    Okposo is captain by default, he doesn't need a C...everyone in the locker room respects the hell out of that dude.

    Craig Rivet made mention on ATW about his experience in the locker room when he was a SJ Shark. That room was stacked with leadership and chemistry!

    Maybe it took some time to get the right people in both the FO and the locker room.

    I’ve done something similar recently, but on a “preacher’s” FB page to call his bluff - for reasons I shall not discuss here.

    It would be cool of someone grabbed the GW puck with the intention of presenting it to RJ later. 👍🏼

    Who knows? They just might do that.

    Just like when the Calgary Flames honored Rip Simonick with a puck when he went to his 3500th game as Sabres’ team equipment manager.

    That image of Eichel raising his arms like that reminded me of something I saw here on SabreSpace back in the days of yesteryear. We had a member whose username was “eball”. His profile pic was Mats Sundin, then-Captain of the TMLs, raising a golf club bag over his head as if he was raising the Stanley Cup.

    It was funny back then, and it’s still LOL material today.
