Wow...... wooooow.  How do you just lazily skate back into the zone when your net is empty.  

Looked like Dahlin, at least, raised his arms as if to say “WTF”. I don’t even know what to say anymore

It's time for Botterill to go. This is beyond embarrassing, beyond a failed rebuild.

I've said it consistently, and I'll say it again, there is an expectation to lose here in Buffalo. It's culture, it's simply a losing culture.

Terry Pegula, your product sucks donkey dick. You have taken Sabres hockey to such a low level of excepting losses that it boggles the imagination.

Looks like repeat of last season going forward. We've changed players, GM's and coaches. Who says we're not consistent.

He thought it was icing. It wasn’t.

I think he needs to fire his current Sabres team President as a start.

At this point, I say we hire Bucky Gleason as GM and Jerry Sullivan as coach.  They seemed to have all the answers.

At about 1245, I had the option to take a nap or watch the game.

I chose poorly.

This team is bad.

If he thought it was icing, he's dumber than Allen. He looked right at the Canuck skate five feet over the red line.

They're doing it, they're really doing it! The race to the bottom is on, bigtime! As long as Jack and Dahlin don't get traded, I could not care less. This team lost me a few weeks ago so these losses are welcome. If next year is not the year for the playoffs, at least we will have the royal blue. New Jersey and Detroit are the only team pretty much guaranteed to finish below in the Standings so lottery, please be good to us.

Two tap ins missed by Frolik. Gotta cash this in.

If I had any thoughts of Frolik actually contributing to the success of this team, it’s now gone.  I know a fourth is low risk, but just below expectations in both talent and effort. Another miss.

Jack has points in 24 of 26. How many have we won, Botts?

Think of how low it took for us to make even that trade.

Can we trade our whole team for Ricky Williams?

You haven't figured it out yet, have you?

This draft doesn't mean *****. The entire roster except Eichel is garbage. Including Dahlin. I mean, really man, that's just complete honesty. By the time your precious draft picks come of age, Eichel will be long gone. And the losing culture will continue because Pegula doesn't have a clue what he is doing. That is based on plenty of precedence already.

JBot needs to be fired before the June draft.  I fear all he will do is draft more small, soft and gutless players who will never be capable of playing a heavy game needed to win in this league.  I don't care if it looks like the Sabres are once again firing somebody too soon, but I really do not like his kind of players.

That is a good portion of the problem I agree, and I've been saying such for quite awhile now. Size with snarl is lacking, in a big way.

It's entirely possible Botterill finishes his 3rd season as GM without matching the point total Murray had the season he was fired. Think about that.

I'm more pissed than I am drunk, which is usually the reverse when I watch Sabres games.  This team is the definition of insanity.

I recall an interview last year in November when the Sabres hosted the Canucks where Petersson answered four questions about Dahlin.  He got so pissed  he asked if the interview was about Rasmus or him.  He went on to win the Calder, and doesn’t seem to be looking back.  It seems like forever ago when that hype for Dahlin pervaded the press and our conversations.   Fading with each game.

This team is the anti-Gestalt.  The whole is worse than the sum of its parts.
