Nope, Richard is right . O'Reilly wanted out. I am sure either he or his agent requested to be moved. You could see on his face in the post games he was biding his time and kind of talking around the issue. There is something going on here. 

Yea, the team isn't good.

I don't a give ***** how long you've been a fan. It's boring crap to read 15 one liners about how the team is bad. We get it. 

When I post complete crap I hope to God I get called out for it. 

Don’t read my comments then.

Well it was 60+ degrees today here in the Buffalo area so we had that going for us.  I refuse to get worked up over this ***** show and I suggest you all do the same. Lighten up Francis(es).

I actually beg to differ. Under this coach, this team isn't good. I do believe there is more talent here than some give credit for. The only time we'll see that is once they leave and do well somewhere else. (and we're seeing it already with ex-Sabres who posters wanted run out of town) This coach stinks, and his assistants. That is the major problem.

I agree the coach sucks.

I don't want to deal Risto, Bogo et al. I honestly believe under Quenneville he can tighten up the D and implement a system that will help Hutton and Ullmark (I actually like our goaltending also- honest) with  a few decent assistants I also honestly believe the offense can get much better. There was a time when Pominville and Okposo could put the puck in the net. Tage has a great shot and size but is never instructed to get his ass in front of the opposing goaltender. Time for some serious coaching to take place here. We have some decent pieces. Tage reminds me of Andreychuk- no one screened DeSmith tonight and haven't for the past few games and I just don't get that. All the other teams do this.

The Sabres have a lot of work to do, their really just so young. Patience here.

I feel phil is an outstanding Christian man, give him more time and we will be rewarded. God bless him

It’s obvious that ROR recognized that we had incompetent coaching and GM. That’s why he wanted out. He wants to win.  Unfortunately the future looks bleak here.

Listen, if this GM manages to fire Phil and get a coach like Quenneville or even Guy Boucher and the club doesn't improve under them, I'll concede that maybe we are talent poor. But I am convinced our problems the past few seasons have been entirely coaching related. I know I am beating this to death but to me, it just seems obvious. Garbage effort results in no one benched with any seniority in this league, screening opposing goalies doesn't seem to be part of the game plan (unless Samson does it- some times) I believe the club is a reflection of its coach (or coaches in our case) Another ex-Sabre stoned ROR and the Blues tonight just as an FYI. His name? Anders Nilsson- stood on his head for Ottawa in a 2-0 shutout win.

It's not like St. Louis is a wrecking crew. They are in the playoffs by a 5 point margin.  Watching 90 last year, this wasn't a guy to build around going forward. Good player, but not a cornerstone.

No, St. Louis has some challenges, but they sucked for a good 3 months of the season and once New Year's came and went, they are playing good hockey when it matters now. Tonight they got robbed by Nilsson (again- ex-Sabre doing well) a 35 save shutout and some brilliant stops included if you saw the highlights. (one of them on ROR) They play an entertaining game and you can notice the effort is definitely there. Night and day between them and this Sabre club.

I’d settle for good players instead of trash.  We have so much garbage on our lineup it’s absurd. Sobotka and Okposo are just as bad as Moulson. Thompson also plays a lot of minutes. He belongs in the AHL.

Our traditional problem has been playing players in positions above their abilities. A garbage 1C may be a fine 3C. You have to slot the players correctly and fill in the spaces with the appropriate talent.

I believe Botterill was aiming for the next 3 years with that trade. Shedding O'Reilly's cap hit and adding assets was the point. I think this year was about (hopefully) coming close to the playoffs.  I can't imagine he believed things would be this bleak. 

That said...our outlook going forward is far more flexible. We don't have to worry about paying 30+ year old O'Reilly 7.5 per.

We seem too have a lot of 5th and    6th line players. Too bad we don’t have second line players. Problem solved 🙄
