No, because we're not caricatures, as much as this post indicates you'd like to think. We're capable of observing calls with nuance

"The refs hate us" is the biggest caricature going.

I guess I don’t know the rule. I don’t understand the call.

Me neither. They were both watching the puck and ran into each other. How that qualifies as interference I have no idea. They could just as easily have tagged the Bolts player.

Ah, I forgot section 3.1 - 07: Two face washes are acceptable, but three deemed an infraction.

It's in the MLB rulebook, three strikes and you're out.

And it played zero role in the discussion we were having, until it became clear that you assumed it was the only thing driving it.

They don't hate us, they're just terrible. That call on kucherov was BS too.

He made contact with Johnson's face in the slot, then shoved him when Johnson was on the ice atop the crease, then swiped/punched and face washed him. The ref said enough.

And if the ref said that was enough every time that exact amount of post-whistle hubbub happened, the game would be dramatically different, and so they shouldn't arbitrarily decide things like that based on whatever they feel like.

It’s going to be tough to win when half the roster is not competent NHL players. 

We said that last year, the year before, the year before...

Vegas builds a team in one off season, how many years should a rebuild take?

We need a spark.  Some leadership.  Let’s go.  The losing has to STOP 

They are playing well. Keep it going and the goals will come.

It would be nice if it could be somebody else vs. having to rely on Jack or Sam to get it done.

There are few things in sports that inspire stronger feelings of hopelessness than seeing Conor Sheary in your team's sweater racing against Victor Hedman in the other team's sweater for a loose puck

How do you interpet: "The Sabres aren't allowed to do things other teams do, we all know that."

Exactly my point.  I’m slowly leaning towards “JBot is failing”.  The results speak for themselves.

I didn't see you respond to that post at all? You've been talking to me.

Throwing out the first two roughs, the final one is one that a lot of refs in 2019 will call a lot of times. You just don't do it. It's a feel good penalty. And it cost them, very possibly the game.

The "bitch" post was not a reply. And I just watched Johansson's penalty again and it's a no brainer. He skated right into him.

Deserved or not, it's the story of Buffalo-Tampa since the tank - surprisingly effective ES hockey for our guys against theirs, that doesn't matter because special teams gets won in a big way by Tampa, usually by Buffalo penalties that draw a lot more skepticism than is typical from fans.

I don't doubt it, which is why I'm not the one trying to drag that penalty into a discussion about a post-whistle skirmish the period before as if it has relevance to it
