We don't take kindly to folks that joke around here

 

As has been stated numerous times for the old, but still good looking, we need the sarcasm smiley thingy.

Nah, keep posting. This place is just like a ball-pit full of Toddlers, we occasionally throw them at each other's faces.

Do we know who's in net for the Sabres?

I'm guessing it's Hutton.

I would be quite surprised if it's not the Hutter.

Sorry, MODO.

Important game tonight.

We have 52 pts in  43 games and Carolina 45 in 43.  The Canes have been playing good hockey lately (6-4) and the Sabres only 4-5-1.

A win by the Sabres will make the spread 9 points and bring us to 54 pts with 38 games remaining to earn 44 more points to secure a playoff spot.  20-14-4 ought to do it.  If we win and make the spread 9, Carolina would need to earn 52 points in their remaining 38 to catch us.  Something like 25-11-2.  Good luck with that.

Interesting seeing Sam put on a line with Vlad and Sheary.  Hopefully that can create some secondary scoring.  Happy to see Jack’s name in there again.

MUST WIN!

Better than a cage full of monkeys, flinging poop around.

I have a thought for that but I don't feel like getting banned for making a harmless joke.

People think we've got the power because we've got the monkeys. Nuh uh. We've got the power because we'll let the monkeys loose.

Named?  That implies that he was NOT voted in, but is a replacement for someone ... OV, perhaps?

They would replace someone within the division, so it couldn't be OV.

This is the healthiest the Sabres have been all season.  I think every forward is healthy for the first time all season.   Nelson is still on the shelf, but isn’t exactly needed with Pilut in the lineup.

I am just reading the other thread over there.  Skinny was actually voted in.

Skinner - Eichel - Thompson have played a whopping 4:36 together in all situations. They allowed 1 goal but had a positive corsi (60%). Their high danger corsi was 50%. They started in the offensive zone 75% of the time. The 1 goal they allowed was from a high danger scoring area. They had 1 HD shot attempt or 12 per 60min. 

Sheary - Sobotka - Reinhart have played 50:49 together in all situations. They scored 1 goal and have a positive corsi (50.50%). Their high danger corsi was 57.89%.

Erod - Larsson - Okposo have played only 1:54 together in all situations so who knows. 

Zemgus - Mitts - Pommers have played 8:39 together in all situations. They scored 1 goal and have a positive corsi (60%). Their high danger corsi was 66.67%. They started in the offensive zone 85.71% of the time. Their 1 goal scored was from a high danger area. They had 4 HD shot attempt or 26.67 per 60min. 

 

(HD or High Danger shots are defined by this http://blog.war-on-ice.com/new-defining-scoring-chances/index.html

Mostly small sample sizes, but from an analytics point of view, this might the optimal Sabres forward lineup?

I’m getting peeved about how people are talking three-team race for last two spots. Win tonight and we are ahead of Montreal, NYI and Columbus and tied with Boston and Pittsburgh for 4th.

Concede nothing. Time to pillage the south.

Yes, bad sample sizes. 100 minutes is usually good so we gotta hope this sticks for a bit so we can analyze it.

I spoke to Jesus this morning. He said each line gets a goal tonight. Buf 4 Car 2

Wouldn't that be 4-4 I know Jesus was crucified, but being a sabres fan is a much worse fate 😇

Interesting lines. (Loving Skins, Eichel and Tage against the machine).

Why aren't Larsson and Girgensons back together? 

And no CJ? He did more than Pommer surely?
