should win games when you score 4 goals. if you lose after scoring 4, you have terrible tending or terrible defense, or both. hutton should be sent away, they signed that guy for the expansion draft. use him

So Thompson is playing over Skinner one of our best scoring forwards.

If RK is going to refuse to use Skinner properly there is NO reason for Skinner to be here. I’m sure they’d love to trade him this year if they can.

No one is taking Skinners contract, unless the Sabres wanna eat some. Krueger is an idiot for wasting the kid.

Interesting. Washington doesn't suffer the same issue, I'm going to say it's roster building and coaching that are the issue. Just a hunch, but after years of this nonsense, not far off the mark I'd wager.

I guess. They were a playoff team but that's just 5 weeks difference.

How long before Buffalo brings in a competent goalie?  Too many games the backup is going to have to play this year.  He’s going to cost sabres a playoff spot.  Make a damn move before it’s too late.

I was taken aback by that comment. I would say watching from Angola is the cause, but Razor always says nonsense like that

I question why Skinner can’t get a shift after we scored the 4th goal.  He hustled tonight.  He always going to be who he is so RK better find a way to coax some goals out of him, like playing him more and with better players. 
 

Eakin and Reider looked ok.  Hall too.  Staal not so much.

Agreed. Why someone hasn’t forced RK to put Skinner back with Eichel on the first line is beyond me. It worked great so let’s not do that.

Huh, thought Ullmark was labeled the starter, whatever.  LETS GO BUFFALO! I have a Voodoo Barrel Room Collection stout waiting for puck drop! Cheers, guys!

The Aphotic is good, at least

Wasn’t Razor in the arena? I could have sworn they showed him there in pregame

So, a few thoughts:

--I was very, very happy to watch a Sabres game again.  It had been way too long.

--Did I see Tage Thompson on a power play?  I don't need to see it again.  Too clumsy and too slow.

--Way too often, Sabres defensemen in the offensive one were cheating backward in case of a turnover.  That means they aren't confident playing in front of Hutton.

--Speaking of whom, why in the world did RK start him?  I get that he wants Ullmark to go against Vanacek, but Ullmark is young enough that he should be able to handle both ends of a back-to-back on the opening first two games of the season.  This was a mistake, and it rests squarely with Krueger.

--I like the redesigned power play, a lot.  As long as Thompson isn't part of it, I suppose.

--Staal was kind of a mess.  I'm hoping for a little more from him.
