Recommended Posts

Can I start the Game Day Thread for the first game of the 2019-2020 season.  Too soon?

A lot of mourning for Hughes. Sabres don't need another potential #1 center. They need middle-6 talent badly. Should be someone pretty easy to get in the low 10s.

We need to break this "No playoffs? Time to tank!" mentality if this team is to ever truly shake the losing culture. Go out with your heads held high. Enough of this race to get #1 every year.We got Dahlin, be happy.

Agree.  The people who want to lose don’t get it.  Winning is better but most important is trying your best.  Tanking is wrong and it’s bad for any team  

We are going to get a good player with our first pick.

Nashville ties it up. More good news for the draft. But it’s the Sharks game that matters most.

Dahlin says Skinner will have a “Happy Contract” next year.  Love it!!!

Damn, the Avs sure made out on that trade with Ottawa.

They have the #1 slot now.

I think Dahlin said something about he lost his love of hockey this year and that it all starts with him. Weird.

I can’t remember being an adult and liking a Sabre more than I like Rasmus Dahlin.

Liked Sam’s interview. He sounded like he’s growing up.

And how much middle-six talent could trading Hughes have brought in?

Hey Reinhart is growing a beard.  Looks like he added some muscle too.  

I forget how young the core of the team is. He is definitely maturing as a good player.  Recall the year he was drafted, he was not ready to play in the NHL, very small and in need of strength. 

 

Mittsie - hit those weights please. Try the Eichel workouts.

Or use some of the Frank Thomas Nugenix stuff.

It means enough to you to watch it and comment here. Do you get up in the morning and just look for someone's Cheerios to piss in?

Enjoy the offseason

Which is basically what we should have done (at a minimum) last season. If this is used as a benchmark for progress, my head is likely going to explode.

Sabres came together for the final few games, that is nice but there is so much work to be done.  

The stretch from January thru March was really painful and unpleasant.   We literally watched them consistently lose to teams below them in the standings,  forget how to play on the road, and fail to string two good games together.  

It was the strangest stretch of any season I can remember ...  like one of those dreams where your running but not getting anywhere.

Ah, yes. The face you’re making realizing drafting lets says 6th in hopes that one player can immediately fix our middle six needs doesn’t equate to what we could get trading Hughes/top pick would fetch for middle six help. 

😂

Sabres need to get their hands on the best talent possible. Center, wing, D, doesn't matter where.

Middle 6 talent?

Nashville won, pushing STL tona wilcard. What implications does that have on our second 1st Rd pick and what do we want to happen in the wpg and SJ games?

You care mostly about the Sharks. If they win, we pick 27, lose and it’s 22 (might have a chance of 21)

if Jets win and Sharks lose, we might stay at 22 or jump to 21, depending on who holds the tiebreaker between Win and SJ
