  1. IIRC, during the broadcast of the NHL draft, that was the commentary right after the Sabres drafted him. They basically damned him with faint praise along the lines of "He's not the most skilled or cerebral player, but..." and I think it snowballed from there. And it was a little weird since none of the draft write-ups (at least the ones that I saw) in the months leading up to the draft had that narrative. Who knows? Maybe it will hold him back. But even if he's not Reinhart, that doesn't mean he's just a physically gifted athlete who is also a completely blockhead. Trying to be cautiously optimistic because the Sabres haven't historically had a lot of big, fast centers.
  2. Belichick is money against young QBs, especially with 2 weeks to prepare. Rams will get behind early and that’ll be it.
  3. Your posts on the last couple pages don't read as jokes, but I'm glad you're walking that one back. Everyone on this board reads the same mock drafts and prospect analyses leading up to the draft which is why most of us are generally excited about the same players. A lot of people liked Boeser (along with a bunch of other projected late 1st rounders in 2015) which is why the board was apoplectic when the Lehner trade went down. A lot of people liked Sergachev the next year but were fine with Nylander -- again, based on what we all read. This board was pumped about Grigorenko and Girgensons right after that draft, and no one took Laaksonen seriously when we made that pick. We're hockey fans forming opinions based on second-hand information. It's fun, but I think we can just leave it at that.
  4. This is honestly one of the more insane things I've ever seen anyone post on here.
  5. There’s no way to justify ever playing Scandella again this season. And that was true weeks ago.
  6. Sobotka is not good but I at least understand why they keep playing him. Scandella has been trash the entire season and we have better options.
  7. No intelligent GM would give us anything useful for him but it's really about not having him here. He's been a disaster for us all season, and we have better options.
  8. I'll believe the Sabres are serious about making the playoffs this year when they get rid of Scandella. You can't justify playing him any more.
  9. This. If we put Mittelstadt and Thompson in the AHL (or Dahlin for that matter), our system would look ridiculous. Instead they're doing their learning in the NHL. (In Dahlin's case, he's our best defenseman.) Apart from that, our system still looks pretty good. When's the last time Rochester had three defensemen (Pilut, Guhle, Borgen) and four forwards (Smith, Olofsson, Nylander, Asplund) we could bring up now with confidence and still have plans for in the future? UPL and Laaksonen are looking like guys that should have been picked in the 1st round, and Samuelsson looks promising too. Organizationally, we need some centers but GMJB probably knows that.
  10. Let's just get this over with. Watching the Sabres has been painful since the 10-game streak ended. They've become the ultimate "team that finds a way to lose."
