Are there any press box doors in the Globe that JBOT can slam?  FFS, this is humiliating and I don't even play for the Sabres.

Imagine putting this group of forwards together and then telling them with a straight face to go compete with the teams in our division

People are so skeptical when you point out how critically flawed our roster is in the offseason, and then so furious when the inevitable winds up happening as soon as enough hockey gets played to establish what teams are

If there was a response, it would've been a penalty on us.

Because? Finish the thought.

At this point, I think a good line brawl is what we need.

You mean a bunch of hanging onto each other while McCabe grabs a wiling participant and throws some half assed punches.

But when you have the players that are able to respond to the cheap stuff teams think twice about doing it.

Brandon Montour has played 23 games in a Buffalo uniform.

19 of them are losses.

A wonderful illustration of how little one person means on a hockey team, and how important competent roster building is for all lines and positions

Just what I was thinking. This game's over. Someone just give him a good punch or ten.

It'll never happen because they have guys to step in to makes sure it doesn't, unlike another team that I will not mention.

We're not allowed to do it. 

Well, it's one of those things... if we did it consistently it wouldn't get called as a one-off over-aggressive play, it'd just be natural that we always protect the crease. Like in the NFL, the Seahawks D used to hold and mug and grab on defense every play. The refs called it a couple times, but eventually it wore off and they just let them play. Refs can be normalized just like everyone else. (And like how the superstars always draw the fouls/penalties)

We need a few less analytics players and a few more old school guys

Who in this league is “old school”? Even a lug like Reaves isn’t old school

Everyone on here would bitch about Risto taking a dumb penalty.

They have no one passionate or mad enough to drop the gloves.

How does one illustrate the other?   Add a better player, get worse results?

Well that's kinda it though. If you're going to establish yourself as that kind of team in order to get that favorable treatment you need to accept endless penalties until the refs give up. Which is not the easiest argument to make when your team is also bad.

You mean there are no tough, gritty players in this league.LOL you watch too much Sabres hockey.

You said old school. Now you just changed it to tough and gritty. Yes there are a few tough and gritty in the league

The guy who dropped Mittelstadt did exactly what Risto did, But Risto got called for it. 

Stamkos was skating by Ristolainen to try and get behind the net to play the puck, and Risto took him out.
