They all get so puck focused in the D zone, its like watching peewee hockey.

I think Skinner with Eichel, instead of Reinhart would be better for the  team overall. 

Does anyone know this?  

Skinner AND Olofsson with Eichel wouldn't work as well as the normal top line.

A new reason for why I REALLY want another good C on the team is I'd really like to see Johansson take Reinhart's spot on that line; at least for a handful of games.  He's had A shift with him each of the past 2 games and had ended up with a glorious scoring chance.  They could have Ejchel/Olofsson levels of chemistry.  

But until there is an actual option besides MoJo at 2C, they can't try it on a regular basis.

Been that way for 10 years.  Can't find a coach to instill any defensive zone responsibility.

Was really surprised they kept Smith from last year's staff.  Figured they'd all get punted.

That is debatable , never been a fan of him.   I think Joker made him look good.

We shall see how Joker does with his new line mate. 
 

Scandy was solid.  A 29 year old defenseman is typically just reaching prime. A 31 year old  Frolik has already played his best hockey.

JBot allegedly stockpiled defensemen to trade for forwards.   Not impressed thus far.

Eichel looking tired when he's getting up off the ice. The amount we have to lean on him is taking a toll.

It's mind-boggling when you consider how much they've invested in defensemen.

Blues announcer commented on Buffalo PP,  only one shot despite all the passing.  
 

Eichel impressing them for playing the entire 2 minutes but was “too tired” to cash in on the chance after the PP.

Ralph is giving Eichel Risto minutes.  We should enjoy watching Eichel while we can.

So, what, when they announced the assists on Eichel's goal they did the old Peanuts adult voice?

Sabres goal from wah, wah, wa, wa and walk, wahk, wah, wah.  

I didn’t hear it.   Still have not heard his name.

I dunno how they've gone this long without fixing it. Costing us game after game

Funny moment during the scrum.  Rayzor was “protecting” Darren Pang.  Getting a few laughs.   
 

Why pull the goalie?

Three failures to control and clear the puck.  
 

I told my wife I did not want to blow $350 bucks to watch them lose 5-1.  It’s raining like crazy.  I won’t be getting soaked walking to the  car either.  

Good call.  Sadly.

Frolik is decent and a reasonable add in a vacuum but whoever said it was deck chairs on the titanic is probably spot on. He's the one type of forward we already seem to have in aplenty.
