If we lose, I'm blaming that graphic.

Christ, I hate those swords.

It looks like a logo that a low budget, skid row movie that couldn't get the NHL licensing would use. And all the hockey scenes would be wrong, and there would be a lame cameo from Jonathan Cheechoo or some crap.

5 posts thus far and only 2 of them are GDT related.

I have a very good feeling about this one.  I think the Sabres win big ... 5 - 1.  Samson with 2 goals, Eich with 2 gaols and The Big D with his first in the NHL.  Hutton with the Miller shutout.

GO SABRES!!

Logo looks like it was made by a hippie from the 60s after a day in the desert with The Doors.

I guess we don't know the lines, yet, but we do know Bogo won't be playing.  Curious to know if Larsson is playing and who might sit if he is.

I also wonder if Ullmark will get to start at home before their trip.

They've had 2 days off between games & Huttonis playing lights out.  Unless he comes down w/ the flu this afternoon, really can't see him sitting.

Haven't heard that Larsson is off IR yet.  Hope not.

What's the typical ratio of games for starter/backup?

I'm hoping we continue the momentum tonight. The Rags and Knights both have negative Goal Differentials, but the AVs are currently at +3.

 

They are 2-1, and both wins are at home. They are coming off a 5-2 loss in Columbus on Tuesday, so they will probably be looking to bounce back tonight.

 

While I want to see Ullmark get some time in the net soon, I feel like Hutton is playing too well to play Ullmark before the Back to Back November 16th/17th.

I'm actually kind of bummed that I won't be able to catch this one (imagine saying that last few years). Picking up some friends from the airport after my volleyball league - so all you heathens root extra hard to make up for it.

With the way Hutton has been playing, no way you sit him tonight. Save Ullmark for a game on the WC road trip - Kings Sat/Ducks Sun.

Also - don't mess with the lines, especially the Eichel/Rhino/Sheary line and give the Skinner line a few more chances given the expected GF/60 from the fancy stats.

While it can vary wildly from even to the #1 getting over 70 games, would expect them to split ~56/26 with the bulk of Ullmark's games coming during b-t-b nights.

Also - don't backups *normally* play in away games saving the starter for home games if at all possible?

Sports can be amazing. I was going to ask which goalie you think will get the 56, but obviously you mean Hutton. Contrast with the conventional wisdom just after last season, when the thought was that Ullmark would get something like 60 games and they'd need a solid veteran backup for the rest. I wouldn't rule that out entirely based on Hutton's very impressive start. But clearly it's more than that. There's a reason he got the starting job. (I wasn't paying attention in preseason, so I don't know if that was Ullmark disappointing or Hutton being lights out or some combination.)

I actually like that Sabres logo better than the original/current one because it looks more 3 dimensional where the original one is completely flat. I believe the swords are the same ones used on the red thirds they used during the goathead era as well.
