  1. I am an occasional poster, but a frequent reader. I would say my reason for not posting often is due to my lack of hockey knowledge. Pretty much all of my knowledge is from watching sabres games and reading here. I don't have the extensive knowledge of players in the league like some here. Sometimes I feel I do not have something significant to contribute, and don't want to just blow hot air. I am a young fan, and I think as my hockey knowledge grows, my post quantity is likely to increase with it.

    The talk of the Bills being AFC East favourites is more than a little thrilling, but maybe also premature.

    Outside of their divisional opponents, their home games are against the Chiefs, Seahawks, Chargers, Rams, and Steelers. 

    I know that much can and will change, but that right there looks like tough sledding to me.

    They also get the Titans and 49ers on the road. (And the Cardinals, who maybe will be (really?) good?)

    I love the optimism, but I am braced for a slight regression based on quality of opponents.

    Do the expanded playoff rules kick in next season?

    The thing is though, everyone else in the division also has a tougher schedule as well. They all face chiefs/chargers/broncos/raiders and Rams/Seahawks/49ers/Cardinals. The Patriots also face Ravens/Texans, so I think that yes, we should be favorites in the AFC east.

    The Jack question is clear. He's definitely playing hurt. Lazar on the OT draw proves that. Ribs, intercostal muscles, probably something like that. I hope they shut him down when we are officially out at least. He will need time to fully heal if it's something like that.

    Lazar has been taking OT draws since before Jack has appeared injured.

    A 21 year old leading an AHL team in scoring is actually pretty impressive.   

    That is due more to a lack of point producers on the team than him being outstanding. A quick check puts him not even in the top 60 in ppg (I couldn't find the stat on a site, so I was looking at the top scorers and roughly checking, stopped after I got to the 65th top scorers)

    He leads the Amerks in scoring since he was sent down in Late November.   

    That may be, but 24 points in 35 games and a -12 in the AHL doesn't give me any hope that he will be a competent NHLer next year.

    I was being completely sarcastic.  I know Pegula has money, but I doubt he is willing to blindly dump his own money into the Sabres to the point that he isn’t making a profit.  I haven’t seen a lot of examples of him doing so in the areas he is allowed to.

    I wouldn't expect him to blindly dump money into the organization either. I think he would probably spend more than the average owner though.
