  1. Well I heard from my cousin's yard guy that the Sabres are bringing back Ted Nolan to coach the Sabres.
  2. I mentioned I get pizza every Monday from Buffalo Bros. I did that all through the pandemic; I missed two Mondays in all that time. One I think was a Monday holiday and I forgot to get pizza, and the other was when Buffalo Bros lost power during the Texas Freeze. I made my own that day.
  3. That's the point, innit? In Buffalo the best pizza is your local pizza joint. There are lots of them. It's kind of like barbecue or tacos here in Texas: The best places are local dives.
  4. The article implied that the ESPN+ subscription cost would include NHL games but I'm not 100% sure the author knows. I looked on the ESPN+ site and it appears there are two choices: ESPN+ or the D+/Hulu/ESPN+ bundle, but no other premium subscriptions, so I'm optimistic.
  5. On the one hand I agree, but on the other I worry about people who can genuinely not take the vaccine for medical reasons (or for whom the vax doesn't work such as organ recipients on immunodepressants). There are legit groups for which the vax is not an answer, and it pisses me off that the Freedumb Forum doesn't care about them, as if having a kidney transplant was a choice.
  6. I changed my post because the article implied that NHL games were included in the regular subscription price. I almost signed up when I thought it would be the only way to see ESPN+ games. I guess now I will sign up before next season. Unless they trade Jack, Sam, Risto, Mitts, Cozens & Houser, TPeg sells the team to a Chinese conglomerate and the team moves to China. Then I'll think about it first.
  7. Yeah, I just found the announcement.
  8. NBCSports is the app. Peacock has some sports but I don't know if they show the live games.
  9. The one thing that just annoys me to no end is I don't the NHL Network. I can't get it through NHL.tv (which seems like it should be included) and if I want it through my cable provider I have to get the most expensive premium level of service.
  10. We get pizza every Monday because the bar we get it from has half-off pricing on Mondays. A large pie feeds my me and my son for the day, plus a couple days of lunches for us both.
  11. As someone who had Center Ice through DirecTV and now get NHL.tv, I recommend the latter. They're basically the same service but Center Ice is linked to your TV provider (DirecTV or cable company, etc.) NHL.tv is not. To view NHL.tv you can either watch it on a PC or through a smart TV or a streaming device like Roku. The reason NHL.tv is better is that you can watch live or on delay, watch all the features (interviews, etc.) on TV, watch the pre-game and post-game (although those you can only watch live). You don't get those with DirecTV.
  12. If you're in the U.S. but not the Buffalo market, NHL.tv/Center Ice is the way to go, and basically the only legal way to go.
  13. That's why I posted all the 1-2Cs from around the league. I would like to think that the cost of admission into the Eichel sweepstakes is a top-6 C if that's the direction KA goes. (A different direction would be loading up on prospects... plus there could be a combination.)
  14. Yes I am and yes I understand that, but I tend toward the conservative assumptions (i.e., not expecting the vax to be fully effective, etc.) I'll be happy when it's not even a concern.
  15. 13th forward on the worst team in hockey.... what a way to end your career.
  16. If Granato is the coach we won't be competing for a playoff spot. We will be improving individually and as a team. Spoiler: If he's successful, we will be competing for a playoff spot.
  17. They buried Moulson in Ontario (California). In Eakin's case I think burying him in Rochester would be a better option for the team financially than buying him out.
  18. Buffalo pizza makes me feel wonderful. All of me.
  19. Up until now he's been a career ECHLer. At the AHL level he didn't look very special over a handful of games. He played lights out in three of the four games he's played for the Sabres at the end of the season, his only NHL experience thus far. Oh, and he was born with two clubbed feet. The reason he became a goalie is he couldn't skate fast enough for any other position in hockey. He's mature, 28 year old I think, so he doesn't have the NHL jitters too bad. He's kind of like Granato.... just totally enjoying any time he can get at the NHL level.
  20. Maybe a two- or three-year deal for Reino as a compromise? We want to keep you but we understand you don't want to be part of a *****-show. We're making changes and think you'll be happy enough to extend. If Reino wants out though I don't think that will keep him.
  21. Honestly this is still my preference. I'd like to keep both Jack and Sam. I think it really depends on whether there is a true rift between Jack and management, or it's just frustration with his injury situation, and recovery would heal over his angst. Sadly I think the only hope in keeping Sam is signing him to a multi-year deal in the offseason and I don't think it will happen.
  22. You inspired me. My profile pic is almost a decade old.
  23. I've been tracking our county in Texas, from the standpoint of what are your odds of contracting Covid on a given day. Based on the latest metrics I have a one-in-13,000 chance of getting Covid on a given day. I'll be happy when it's about one-in-250,000. That basically means single digit positive cases each day.
