So Philly just keeps on winning as they beat Boston then st louis. Any chance of catching 8th is a pipedream unfortunately 

Lost tonight. They are an odd team. Great one night, absolute crap the next. Hard to figure out. We might have a better shot at catching Toronto though. One can dream.

Toronto has the best record in the NHL since the coaching change. So no.

Losing Hart could be huge if he's out for an extended time.

I get where you're going but unlike us when they are on they can really rack up the goals. Much more forward talent on that team. Their D is often suspect and some of the forwards seem to take games off. That last part might be the same.

Perreault was not too happy. I don't blame him. He has the record for 4 players suspended for infractions against him and this one shouldhave been the 5th.

“I got to take matters in my own hand next time this happens and I get to swing my stick across his forehead, and I shouldn’t get suspended then,” added Perreault.

If he does decide to go that route he needs to be smart enough to say in the days leading up to their next game against Vancouver that he was 'just kidding' or 'clearly exaggerating due to the emotion of the moment' or he'll be suspended longer than all those other 4 combined.

Ovie has his second hat trick in two games. 8 goals in his last three games. Dude is 34

Minor detail: he also passed Mario on the all-time list. I honestly think he gets to Gretzky if he doesn't retire.

It will be interesting to watch ... I’m of the mindset Ovi will fall short of Gretzky.

He already has. He supposedly got a phone call.

Finally, a player I can relate to.  I just don't know how incidents like he's aspiring to don't happen more often. One spear to my junk and I'm looking to end someone's ability to eat without a straw.

So the Sabres are 8 points out of 8th as we near February. How in God's name are teams like Philly, Carolina, the Rangers and especially Columbus ahead of them. Columbus gets rid of their top 2 players and somehow don't miss a beat. Carolina loses Skinner, Islanders lose Tavares......and when we lose O'Reilly, it's like there is no recovery. Buffalo has pretty good players in the top 6, reinvents the bottom 6 every year, has a decent defense and ok goaltending. I hope that someone outside of this organization places a phone call someday to Terry and is like...yeah, I know how to fix this pretty quickly because obviously your organization is still lost at sea.

I'm pretty sure someone is misspelling the players names on the line charts and noone knows which line they should be on and it's creating on-ice confusion and that's why we suck.

I guess this would be overstating the obvious that OV will be in the HHOF.

I had a feeling when we had that really hot start at the beginning of the season that we might be missing a couple of pieces that would have made us unstoppable. I definitely agree that goaltending is a serious issue. We also can't seem to get around being snake bitten, which is just the nature of the beast.

Obviously, some of us think that there needs to be a shakeup in the FO - with exception to RK. I'm not sure what to think about that. I know that everyone here is getting frustrated that we may be on the outside looking in yet again.

May be on the outside? We're already toast. The only hope is that the black on the toast will be scraped off and we'll be plunged down again (then removed again, but this time before we're toast again, which I think, metaphorically represents making the playoffs).

I can't believe we're going to do this to ourselves again, or let it be done to us again, or however you want to put it. We need to finish the season on about a 112-point full-season pace.
