    Phil Housley should be fired.

    Am I the only one who read JBot's & Peg's comments as possibly being short-term face-saving for Phil, before letting him go after the season? It's impossible to know, but that's what I took.

    Many here had mentioned that JBot may want Chris Taylor to take over here. How likely do we think that is? It would make sense to let him finish the AHL playoffs first (i.e. wait till after that point to fire Housley)

    Weren't they a lot better last year without Eichel than this year without Eichel?

    Awesome info, guys. I do need to get gear first, but I've been threatening such to my wife for a while now. I think now is the time to go for it. I currently only have goalie skates, but don't want to play goal anymore. I'll follow up when I've got my gear. Sorry everyone else for hijacking the thread

    I haven't played in almost 18 years, but was thinking about getting back into it (I'm 33). Would looking into a league at the Piers be a good idea? I live uptown but have a car, so Yonkers/the boroughs could work. What would be a good way to get my skills back up? I don't just want to join a league cold. Also probably gotta hit the gym first. (I'm 5'10", 175, pretty strong skater when in practice)

    While I've seen much criticism of how he may or may not utilize advanced stats in his game plans/lines/etc., haven't people usually praised the system he uses as being good for the "modern" NHL?

    Sam never played center since his 2018 "awakening" Also, I don't think Sam is a worse skater than ROR

    Girgensons and Larsson play pretty physical, and Okposo straight-up ran someone over last night who got in his way. We have some physicality on the team. The problem is Mittelstadt, Sheary, and Thompson not being particularly strong and usually matching up against bigger players. ERod has gotten better, but even he will get leveled by bigger d-men. Finding high-skill players who can play a very physical game is not easy, and they come at a premium.

    He's trying to make his own brand/style, I guess... I must admit, I'm enjoying him much more than I did at first, and I think he's gotten better. Nonetheless, I find many of his go-to calls ("Eichel tower," "Sam-I-am") absolutely cringe-worthy

    Sabres Should Counsel Okposo to Retire

    I'm sure someone will provide all of the details, but I don't think there's a penalty for the team unless the contract is signed after the player is something like 31 or 32.

    Reinhart, The Force Awakens

    Just pointing out how strong on the puck and on his feet he has become since his first two season. He used to get knocked over every shift. I hardly ever see him getting knocked over anymore.
  12. Duclair has a sick skill-set, though- it's tempting if you think he just needs the right line-mates/utilization

    I did see some of the "progress" JBott was alluding to in this game. Unfortunately, no one seems to care about any progress on the power play. Maybe they're so focused on coaching other elements of the game that they don't care about the power play now, either? Isn't there some assistant coach we can bring in to fix it? We will not compete for anything if this is what our power play looks like, and we have some talented players on it.
