  1. some like it and some don't, I am just saying that compared to the Blue Jackets goal song, it's pretty okay haha
  2. no kidding, what's the mental block we have with the Panthers? it really is annoying
  3. it's Aces compared to the Blue Jackets goal song...just terrible and its been the same for a long time. The cannon shot is cool though
  4. they must have changed their policy then, I just got Sunday Ticket for the 1st time this year and the local (Bengals, Browns) are always blacked out and you have to watch the local channel that it is broadcasted on. I was thinking about getting NHL.tv, is it worth it other than the blackout of course?
  5. there's nothing wrong with making observations from the game. Vesey was awful in the Columbus game, that's why it's being talked about it the Columbus game thread. If someone starts a "Vesey is terrible" thread, then yeah, i would say that's a little over the top because it's so early.
  6. He signed a commitment to play for Ohio State and if he was actually fully healed and cleared to play, then I can understand the frustration of the fans and teammates who were unhappy. But if he was still injured and was advised not to play, then that's fine. While he didn't get compensated beyond a free education, he also got the opportunity to play for one of the best college programs in the country and showcase his talent that helped get him drafted to make his millions.
  7. Bosa opting out of the college playoffs and bowl game was not received well by Buckeye fans here. Guy I work with and I were talking about this earlier today. He said "If Bosa would've cared more about his team (Buckeyes) than his draft status, they wouldve beaten Oklahoma and Mayfield wouldn't have had the chance to plant the flag." There were whispers that he was cleared to play but he chose to sit. I for one thought it was funny, Mayfield needed a good humbling and he got exactly that.
  8. Vesey was not only slow last night, but I feel like everytime i saw him, he was just lumbering up the boards, not getting into the coners and rarely put himself in a postition for a shot. I don't think I saw him in front of the net once
  9. Aaaaand of course, they just can't win a friggin game in Columbus for me...again. Few thoughts from ice level. Jackets were pretty amped especially after starting 0-2 and getting thumped by the Pens I wouldn't say the Sabres were terrbile in the 1st as much as I'd say that the Jackets were just playing good hockey Ullmark faced a lot of shots and looked pretty sharp Dahlin took a few bad penalties that cost us, though one was a pretty solid Premiere League dive Eichel wasn't super sharp but not bad either, except his giveaway in OT right in front of me Mojo's play was a pleasant surprise (i didnt get to see the 1st two games), he was one of the few skating hard every shift Larsson Girgs KO were aight, they definitely get too much time on the ice Vesey is worthless, will likely be a fan whipping boy soon. Sheary and Mittelstadt were always hustling but Vesey was slow an not interested the whole night Olofsson seems to have 'it' he's strong on the puck, knows where to go to get a scoring chance, had the PPG goal late to tie it, kid could have over 30 this year Jackets goal song is awful but the cannon is pretty cool there was an 8 year old kid trash talking the sabres and yelling all night, screaming at the refs...it was hilarious there were tickets selling in the upper bowl corners for $7...my double vodka 7-UP set me back $22
  10. I live about an hour from C-bus and will be there with two of my friends. Only issue is that the Sabres are 0-5 in the games I have attended. Hopefully that changes tonight. I was very skeptical going into this season but the amazing start has me tingling a little bit
  11. I stared at RaKru for 2 minutes before I figured it out. I'm an idiot...
  12. Unfortunately the last 6-7 years have been ruining my love for the Sabres but it hasn't consumed my life lol. I have been trending towards apathy, neat if they win and whatever when they lose. Last years epic collapse post November did a number on me. I haven't renewed my NHL app yet, taking the fair weather approach and I hate to admit that but as mentioned by many others, the lineup doesn't inspire confidence that this team will be anything above 79-83 points as their ceiling.
  13. Other than the tank years that we knew were going to be bad, this is the least excited I have ever been for a Sabres season. I have been bummed since last season's collapse, teetering on apathy. I wanted to be excited with a new coach but then I see Sobotka on the 2nd line and Erod an extra. They're making it hard to care, I don't even know if I am renewing my NHL app this year to watch.
  14. Oloffson, Vesey, Johansson, and Okposo will not score more than Reinhart. Skinner will have more than Eichel.
  15. True story. The average guy working out a 4 day split and eating properly can gain 1.5-2lbs a month of muscle. TT being a pro with access to trainers etc, could probably hit 2.5-3lbs of muscle a month and that's really pushing it. I can see him starting the season maybe 12lbs heavier than last season, 15lbs if he really trains hard.
  16. Just read this today. Dahlin showing some leadership quality and taking responsibility. I like to see that he's doing that at such a young age. How quickly does he get an 'A' on his sweater?
  17. Miller High Life! close to champagne...right?! haha I have mastered the "Not so bright look" it has spring boarded me into local lore and fame
  18. haha we're more manly than baseball players
  19. I got on to a hockey team a few months ago after almost 18 months off the ice. The Captain told me the team is awful but 'we still have fun'. 0-12 last season, 89 goals against...I didn't care, I just wanted to play some hockey. They got a new goalie from a pickup game, 4 players quit because the team was so bad so they got replacements, including me and a guy from near Rochester (cool having another Sabres fan on the team). We went 7-5 with only 22 goals against (best in the league), rolled through the quarter-finals and semi-finals with ease, and won the Championship last night, 3-2 in the shootout! Last night was AWESOME!!!
  20. Whenever I travel for work, I wear my BIlls or Sabres tshirts or hoodies. In Frankfurt Germany I met a family from Buffalo that yelled Go Bills when they saw my hoodie. They invited me to dinner and had a nice evening. Turns out they were from Lancaster not far from where I grew up in Cheektowaga. At the airports in both Amsterdam and Brussels I ran into Buffalo people. Last week I was in Athens for work, I went down to the Plaka district (super touristy, gold shops, markets, right near the Acropolis) I had my OneBuffalo 716 shirt on and I saw a woman poitning at me and the family waived at me with some thumbs up. Traveling home, two people at the airport said Go Bills, one was a stewardess. Buffalo people are every where and not afraid to call it out.
  21. yeah, who does stupid things like that?
  22. Assuming that Ottawa is in full rebuild, Guhle and the 1st will help, but, the anchor contract that is Okposo might make them think twice, in a rebuild, you want to get younger and add assets, not get older with little production (adding Okposo)
  23. but that's why they wouldn't move Toews for Okposo and Sobotka. No one wants Okposo's and Sobotka's salary either.
  24. update, i am free and clear! had tests done and i have nothing to worry about!!!!
  25. I hihgly doubt the Hawks would be interested in Okposo and Sobotka at all. Guhle and Smith are prospects that the jury is still out on, and the SJS 1st will be low in the round. I just don't see how that gets Toews with salary retained.
