I was crazy about him a while back to, but I've come to watch him a bit more.   Might be a better foligno but that is it.

Is a better Foligno a bad thing?

We could use some toughness + in our forward ranks.

It's no bueno. Why would anyone who considers himself or herself a fan post that?

I don't suppose it's in any way actionable on the part of the Sabres? For example, if they knew who did it, suspend season ticket or ticket privileges? I can't imagine it's legally actionable.

Just wouldn't be surprised if his scoring went down.

I would hardly consider that a game-plan and if it is, God help this team

Do we know that it was taken by a Sabres fan? 

I suppose the Sabres could look to deny entry or access to the person(s) who took and published the photo. It's their barn - they can deny access to whom they like for any non-discriminatory reason.

Beyond that, I can't see any legal basis for grieving what the photo taker did.

Those are pretty clearly cribbed notes -- a single page of them (there look to be more pages) -- that embody the bulleted highlights of a game plan.

I think you're overthinking it a bit. This is interesting stuff for us as fans, but I doubt it's interesting to opposing teams.

You can see the fan's Sabres jersey reflected in the glass.

No. I was speculating-whether.

A fun question: would the Sabres' PP be better or worse this season if Phil let Jack coach it?

I forgot to remind you knuckleheads in my OP that the game is in Buffalo, so no pillaging and baby eating.

Hope it's not too late.

@darksabre, we can calm down for now, but we must keep vigilant.  It is only a matter of time before a disastrous goalie decision is made.

I just got paid over $3,000 from 2 clients that I finished up year ends for ... 1st round is on NS!!

FTFY.

But, yeah. Pretty clearly a Sabre fan's snapshot.

As for publishing it: That is just the time in which we live.

Nothing says crap regular season hockey like a Thursday night tilt between the Sabres and freaking Hurricanes.

Ughh.

I think we make the playoffs. I mean come on, we had a 10 game win streak. I'm sure there will be another winning streak this season

I love the sense of hope.

HOWEVAH.

You watched some/much of the win streak, right?

And you've watched the team play at a bottom-5 pace since then, right?

Winning two in a row would honestly be pretty meaningful since this team is so bad at it. They haven't won 2 in a row since December 13th.

Of course.  I see two teams:

1. A team that moves its feet, that pressures the other side, that attacks with speed.

2. A team that plays conservatively and tentatively and allows the other team to set the pace.

When the Sabres play like Team 1, they win.  When they play like Team 2, they lose.  It's that simple.  I think some opponents know this and use tactics to disrupt our speed an flow.  This is Housley's challenge:  To get the team past obstuctionist opposition.

 

EDIT:  #1 and #2 and which team the Sabres plays like has been true for a dozen or more years.  Even in the depths of the tank they were far more likely to win if they moved their feet, and destined to lose if they didn't.

Not only that we're tied with Carolina with one game in hand and we really can't afford to keep losing ground to the teams above us. If there was a must win, well, it's tonight.

And Saturday, and Sunday, and the next Tuesday, and the next Thursday, and the next Saturday...

Of all the must wins this is the must winest.

The Sabres really need to take care of business for themselves here, especially against teams that are chasing them.  And, hope that teams just ahead of them falter.  And win those games with the teams just ahead of them.
