Sabres Acquire Center Eric Staal from Wild for Marcus Johansson

I don't think you quite understand what I was trying to get to. PA quite literally rarely has anything to say that isn't some type of veiled insult or contempt for the organization. As Eleven pointed out; he never said a thing until a negative narrative was brought up. 

You can hate moves, ideas, people; I'm not saying you can't. I'm saying that not everything is evil or doomsday and without any "liked" events it drags down the credibility and usefulness of any further point you may bring up. PA seems to focus only on negative events, anger inducing events and anything surrounding the Pegulas that can be seen as negative. At this point there seems to be nothing he wouldn't twist into a negative light. PA comes across no longer as a  fan as much as someone who desires the Pegula's to fail, Sabres be damned.

Lastly you can't only criticize; without any positives you come across as either agenda-driven and/or the person is oblivious. The Sabres could win the Stanley Cup and by how PA behaves he would still want the Pegulas' effigies burned for their perceived errors. 

 

All of it has become grating. 

 

 

While I too can get frustrated at times by PAs neglected hope, I disagree completely with the bolded. He doesn't want the Pegulas to fail; he mistrusts and resents them for the way they have handled what should be a sacred trust.

In my opinion, PA views the Sabres through a rather romantic lens cracked by years of disappointment. The object of his affections has screwed him around for at least a decade and for the most part during that time his observations have proven correct. Watch the video again, there is as much truth in what he observed as what I and others have posted about Staal's professionalism in handling his disappointment.

My greatest wish for this board is the day I see PA post about the current Sabres with joy because it will be confirmation that we've finally turned this thing around.

Wow.,.this is a real positive post.

I think his attitude is some what justified, a little extreme maybe. But hey, it leads to discussion. What happened to "Hockey Heaven"? 

It's a new season coming up and I know I'll be full of hope/excitement again just like every year. We'll see if I still have it 20 games into the season.

It IS VERY notable that you didn't post here when everyone was cheering the trade, but waited until there was some sort of misery involved.

Maybe I didn't want to piss is in anyone's Cheerios. I try to emulate your positivity and good cheer.

The trade didn't do much for me. Kind of on the fence. I didn't post until I saw the video.

Actually I DID, to generally give Adams the benefit of the doubt. But your weird, longstanding and intensely personal vendetta against me didn't allow you to see it.

I'll wait for the apology.

Finally I'm on record several times saying the Sabres had close to the perfect owner, if only he would squash his hockey ego, developed in Olean according to my sources when he was involved in youth hockey, an ego that lets him believe he can run an NHL team.

And I hold the board record for positive assertions that this franchise is destined to win a Cup.

The vast majority of my posts aren't about Terry.

Come to a GDT thread.

Go Leafs!

The organization is not the franchise. A presidential administration is not the country. If you can't see the difference, I don't know what to tell you. Yes, I truly despise this organization (read: the owners and their people).

You make a good point but where we may not agree is that being a citizen and a fan are not the same in my eye. One for me is chosen entertainment the other really isn't but I get the point you're trying to make.

His attitude is somewhat justified for sure. I'm as unhappy with the team's performance as anyone. I'm not particularly happy with the owners performance either. It with me isn't a personal agenda against a person or persons. I hope the team is successful and if that's under this owner of not I could care less. I think it matters to PA.

It’s a little like marking the migratory path of birds. Now and then, a group of board regulars sincerely question @PASabreFan’s fandom, sanity, etc.

There’s no bigger fan of the franchise on this board. You may not care for how he goes about it, but that’s just a matter of personal taste.

I haven’t seen the Staal videos or heard any interviews. I’ll have a look/listen and then chime in on whether he appears like a laid back professional or a guy thinking of retiring rather than going to Buffalo.

Or you can choose to ignore or scroll past certain posters posts. Not take them seriously. Know agenda when you see it. I try to implement that often. I don’t always succeed 😂
 

On the topic of Staal, I’ll be happy when he produces points for the Sabres. Anything else ... I couldn’t care less about him.

My relationship with the Sabres used to be good, we had a lot of fun. Now? Let's just say I'm here for the kids.

With me, I like it when people take the opposite side and will sometimes take it upon myself to argue it's existence intentionally. This is not to be combative but, instead to show people that there is another side to many things. Sometimes we all get caught up on looking through a monocle and only see one side. It doesn't mean that they have to except what they see through the other eye, only allows for further examination.

I'm curious about the first part.

 

The second part needs to burn in fire until only ashes remain and then be cremated into fine air particles.

I'm still waiting for the Sabres to win a Cup (or any title) under Terry so I can face this dreadful choice. I look forward to that day.

 

AND... I remain, I think, the only SSer who ever sent the man a Christmas card.

Well if you don't watch the games then no one should care about your opinion, you just couldn't know enough.  At that point the jokes and poop are on you.

You're certainly welcome to feel that way. I don't particularly care if you read or enjoy my posts. They aren't for you.

You only come here for that? Why a hockey forum?  Sorry but that sounds like a pretty pathetic reason for being here. And you think that's fun?

Honestly, why would any player be instantly happy about being traded to Buffalo? 

The only question is will he like it when he gets here.

The one thing that does come across is that all that earlier talk about Adams and him being friends is meaningless. He clearly had no idea the trade was happening and it caught him off guard. 

in fairness, if he knew the trade was coming beforehand due to his presumably being friends with Adams, the Wild would be getting some drafts picks from the Sabres as compensation for tampering.

In summary, the one thing people want to read less than me talking about Terry again is people talking about me talking about Terry again.

If PA was super loaded with $ he could get an exemption like some other dinks.
