I honestly can’t believe I didn’t remember this thread until just now.

Ironically enough, I revived a dying bat tonight. I’m totally serious.

When I showed up at my buddies house to watch the game (I’m in NJ and don’t have cable), he was at the door and there was a bat on the sidewalk. It was flying around in his house and he had just stunned it trying to get it out.

Three hours later as I was leaving, it was still there and not doing well. I asked him for a box or something and I would take it,... “meh, somethin’ll get it.”

I walk to my truck and turn the key,... then turn it off. Screw that. I’m either going to end him quick or try to help him. So I got a plastic cup and a shovel, collect the bat and head home. I held the cup to the heater the whole way home (only about 10 minutes.) Nothin’. Leave the truck running with the warm air blowing on him for another 10 minutes in the driveway. Nothin’.

And then he starts scratching at the cup. I get out of the truck and fling the cup in the air. Away he flew.

 

I’ve done my part.

Maybe they're punishing RK for scratching Jeff Skinner.

McCabe, Eichel and now Ullmark since he's been scratched.    

Don't forget Borgen.  

Injured list growing fast: Risto, McCabe, Borgen, Jack, and Ullmark.

Who's next?

Well, we know who it WON'T be...  I mean, you have to actually play to get hurt.

How do you know that He Who Should Not Be Named isn't already injured?  I hear bruised egos are very painful/

Good man, but I think it only counts if you eat the bat.

The hockey Gods were mad at the Sabres far before the tank. 

Jay McKees injury? This might stem from Rigas. Maybe even earlier. 

I think it is very simple.....the hockey gods got pissed off when Pegula & Company had the audacity to declare Buffalo as hockey "Heaven".  The Gods took offense then and have cursed this team ever since.

I disagree. The Gods were mad far before that.

See: McKee injury and Brett Hull illegal goal. 

If you REALLY wanted to speculate, I think it’s something the Bills did to anger the football Gods, that those Gods passed over to the hockey Gods. 

Obviously, Tampa Bay of all cities has some good JuJu with the sports Gods somehow.

Perhaps, but at least we were blessed with seeing some really high quality hockey in Buffalo back then.  The Gods gave us something to be thankful for....admittedly tearing our hearts out in the process.  Now, the Gods are teaching us a very painful lesson of humility with an extended penance.

I still disagree. The Gods can be angry at the teams for whatever they did, but I’m just a peon of a fan. Don’t punish me. I wasn’t part of whatever the rich people decided to do.

BUF even strength shooting pcnt is currently 5.26%.

That's the worst EV sh% going back at least the past 13 years... worse than any 2014-15 tank team.  

Their scoring chance shooting % is 8.42% (historically league average is around 13%).    PHI is currently >22%.  

I'm not sure how else to explain this other than they're cursed.
