  1. Wow you're giving the Sabres 2 goals? I'll be surprised if that happens.
  2. That may be. My point regarding Adams atleast is that he appeared to have improved scoring on paper by adding Hall and Stall. I don't think Adams could foresee Jack sucking ass to start the season, continuing to get zero out of Skinner and Hall looking invisible at times. Goaltending was and still is an obvious that will have to be addressed at some point. Again, this team is not good enough to overcome poor goaltending and it's a fireable offence that this was not addressed in the offseason. Wasting another season is completely unacceptable and how the Sabres can continue to h
  3. Ya if Montour ends up playing over Borgan I'll be pissed. Remember when RK was this big coupe when we signed him? Similar to JBotts. I don't know how many GM's and coaches it will take but I have serious doubts RK will get this ship righted and I'm already having serious concerns regarding Adams and his lack of foresight to realize he absolutely HAD to address the goaltending position this offseason.
  4. How goaltending wasn’t addressed is again beyond me. Seemed so obvious to everyone.
  5. Sure hope we have an adequate backup goaltender for all of those back to backs....
  6. *****. Maybe 98% don't die from it but I, my two aunts, and potentially over 10% of the infected population may end up with debilitating health conditions for months or years after the fact...… https://health.ucdavis.edu/coronavirus/covid-19-information/covid-19-long-haulers.html I was sick last March and have had debilitating symptoms since. There were many days I wish I did die. Hope to God I may finally be turning a corner but this ***** is no fun. https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/the-tragedy-of-the-post-covid-long-haulers-2020101521173
  7. But but but wasn’t Nightingale suppose to be a genius? Man how this franchise can be wrong on so many guys (players, coaches, management) for so long is true my baffling.
  8. I seriously question wtf their analytics department does. Don't they have 3 or 4 guys who's only job is to look at these types of corsi stats and advise the coach?
  9. He didn't say that. Tell me he didn't say that. Hutton is absolute garbage and until he's upgraded this team ain't going anywhere......
  10. Ullmark had decent numbers and is worth keeping. But Hutton had garbage, below replacement numbers. Why on earth did we go into such an important year with a hope and prayer in Ullmark and below replacement level Hutton? Last year Hutton had a 3.18 GAA and .898 SV% good enough for 64th and 62nd in the league respectively. For the record, Ullmark was 29th and 25th respectively. Even removing goalies with less then 20 starts Ullmark ranked 23rd and 19th. So the numbers seem to say we have a slightly below average starter and terrible backup. I've laid it out before but we
  11. The need to improve goaltending this offseason was so obvious that I was just waiting for the ‘who’ and hope it was a big enough upgrade. Too not addressed this in such a critical year makes me assume Adams is not ready for the job and no different then the long list of disappointing GMs we’ve had since Darcy.
  12. Like wtf do they even pay their analytic department to do?
  13. Sabres will be out of it if they don’t figure it out quickly. This team is good enough to make the playoffs if they had two Ullmark but carter and his sub .900 goaltending will cost this team a playoff spot. You can’t be losing to a depleted devils team at home.
  14. Didn’t you say there was suppose to be an offseason move in net? Wtf happened?
  15. This team is just not good enough to overcome sub .900 goaltending.
  16. Did that go through him. Lmao. This is on you Adams? What are you going to do about it?
  17. Why wasn’t goaltending addressed in the offseason???!!!
  18. I’m very interested to see how Hall and Cozens look together.
  19. Can I just point out how dumb it is the game is being played during the NFC championship. Of all the days times to choose. Only the nhl, who needs the tv revenue would schedule multiple games during afc and nfc championship games. Only the nhl that always does this kind of thing. Die hard sabres fan but I won’t be watching today. Go Bills and Go Sabres!
  20. Atleast hall scores the first game but know what your saying. Skinner looks snake bit.
  21. That stinks more then anything this season. We need him to start breaking out this year.
  22. Don't confuse how well the goalies are playing with how well the team has played in front of the goalies. Linus, Hutton and JJ have a save percentage this season of: .905, .899 and .889 respectively. It's even more frustrating how well the team really has played in terms of shot suppression and they're 1-3. I never had a problem with Ullmark. Hutton sub .900 save percentage is just not going to come close to getting it done over the course of a season.....again...
  23. They should have been doing this a month ago. I don’t doubt they were but beyond frustrating nothing was able to get done. Didn’t we see a bunch of goalie signings and trades during free agency? Adams shouldn’t be let off the hook for this.
  24. They should have been looking to trade for a goalie regardless of Ullmark. If he’s out for awhile they need to be making a move ASAP. Again, why are we wasting a season of Dahlin on his ELC, Jack in his prime and the top free agent in the league one year deal?? So much riding on the season and Adams makes zero goaltending moves. I will keep banging the drum that not addressing goaltending this offseason is as bad as JBot not addressing the 2C in prior offseason. It is, and has been for the past twelve months, an obvious area of the roster that had to be upgraded. What
