    Forwards Next Year - Fixing the Middle Six

    I've considered this too. It would add a little extra to the Sabres/TO rivalry. I'm all in.

    Defense Next Year - Could we see major change?

    Laaksonen is under contract with SHL until the end of 2020/21 season. Can he get out of this some how? just asking.

    Phil Housley should be fired.

    Not being snarky.....corrective and informative, sure. Soft and weak, yet forceful in implementing a team system. You can't really focus on individual talents in a "team" environment, at least not totally. I think Phil has done well with what he has to work with. Our middle six needs some serious help and when it comes there will be undeniable improvement. If you focus on individual talent you will need 10 different systems running at once. You need to impose a system and then get the players to adhere to it by either teaching, replacing them with the style player you need, or hopefully it comes natural to them.

    So , you aren't worried that we might be in 1st place come US Thanksgiving? Then what? Do you still fire PH or do you take the chance that next year bares better results?

    The tank seasons were over before Housley got here.

    yea, they need to stop building the Tim Horton's so close to the Consumers Beverages.

    So now we need a better coach than Babcock and get to the 2nd rd in a hurry or nobody will be satisfied? Good luck with that. And once we get there then what will all the b****in' be about? And once we win the cup, I can hear it already......"take out that 15 game win streak and were just an average to mediocre team".

    No....it just depends on how you read things. He didn't "start" losing, we have more wins than last year. He started winning. Or you can look at it a different way, the losing started 8 yrs ago. 3GM's and 5 coaches later, you want to blame one person.

    Never said they were a good team ....at least not yet. Never said they've comeback to win every game either. Read what's there and not what you want to see. Have any questions...ask.

    Then why have our 3rd periods been pretty good, especially early in the season when comebacks were frequent. If he's not adjusting, that likely doesn't happen. I would also hope that when these players actually start "buying in" to the system and the roster is set, there won't be a need to adjust and maybe only "tweak" from time to time. Great teams do little adjusting to the opponent and cram their style down your throat. They force "you" to play "their" game, not the other way around.

    Amen!!!!

    By not saying anything, he said more than we need to know. Did he say ..."i love the wings" or Did he say...."i hate buffalo, too many Tim Hortons"

    Phil Housley should be fired.

    Under 3 GM's and 5 coaches and different levels of talent with different styles among all levels of management and players.....you are confident that Housley is the problem suddenly.

    Phil Housley should be fired.

    With all due respect ....your assessment was wrong. A few years ago (many moons before Housley) is not "suddenly". Pommers last 30g season was 6yrs ago w/Minny and 9yrs ago with Sabres.....if that's suddenly, I can't wait for Botts to "suddenly" turn this team around because I don't think I'll be around that long. You say suddenly and accuse me of my timeline and then you want to use a 36yr old Pommer who last scored more than 18g 6 seasons ago with another team no less. Then Okposo who was healthier and only 26 playing with Tavares and not Mitts/Sheary or Larsson/Girgs as another example, and have the nerve to ask why can't he score? Girgensons was used on the top line the year he had 15g and cooled off rather quickly if I recall correctly. He hasn't been on the top line much at all (maybe not at all) since then and for good reason. He fills a role more suited to him. If the offense "sucked" 4 yrs now, how can you blame that on Phil when he's only been here for two? If you're saying he's at fault for guys like Pommer/ KO/ Girgs for falling on their faces (which they haven't), then you also have to concede that he is the reason for Eichel/ Skinner/ Sam having career years too.
