Not even worried. They will crush Vancouver and right the ship. I think Jokiharju gives them a bit of a spark on the backend. Hoping Jack Quinn can go as I think he is ever so close to breaking out. Watching him live, there was so many little things he did against Boston that will translate once he is a hair faster and stronger.

Quote

 

After being let go by the Canucks a mere month and a half after she moved to Vancouver, Rachel Doerrie says she won’t be working in a hockey front office again.

 

The 26-year-old was hired by the Canucks in an analytics role back in January, her second NHL job after working for the New Jersey Devils from 2017 to 2019.

But despite being promoted to working with the Canucks coaching staff in the offseason, Doerrie was let go by the team in September. Reasons for the Ontario native’s dismissal have not been made public, but Doerrie has lawyered up.

Doerrie spoke publicly about her time with the Canucks on today’s episode of the Staff and Graph Podcast with Mike Stephens, though naturally, she isn’t able to divulge much.

Our girl is back!

The Sabres are at the crossroads and have but to stray a little for all to fall to ruin. We once again find ourselves in November with the season about to slip away and become yet another prolonged development camp for a franchise that has spent more time in the cellar than a fine wine. There is no help coming from outside, no hero from somewhere else to ride in on a white horse and save this team. No, this team must either save itself or die in the pursuit. This game has to be the turning point, it has to end this losing streak, it has to show that this year is different on some level.

Another November of losing will doom this season to the annals of Sabres history as just another in the long dark winter of no playoffs and no hope. But at the moment a glimmer of hope remains. The faintest hint of something good drifts down from the rafters of a building that has hosted cup finals' games and shocking comebacks, that has seen the likes of Hasek, Dury, Briere, and Miller, that has not known winning in 12 long years. That hope is carried not by a savior but by a group, a collective of individuals who will either be strengthened by adversity or broken by it. 

Sometimes faith deserves to be rewarded, and there is no more faithful fans than those that have continued to watch the collapses and infighting these last 12 years. Promises broken, great starts squandered, new hopes dashed to pieces, good players shipped off and replaced, and yet the fans remain. This is the game. The line must be drawn here, the season must be decided now. Not next game, not with a moral victory, not with an excuse, but with a win here and now. Either this year is different, either this team has the mental fortitude to dig deeper than they have before and find a way, or we once again turn our talk to next year because November broke us. 

For me, this game marks the Rubicon; the mythical point of no return that Julius Caesar crossed in 49 B.C. Either they find a way to stop losing and right this ship or once again this team sinks in flames and despair. Which will this team decide? It is up to them. They have the talent, now let's find out if they have the will. Go Sabres.

This is a big game for the Sabres, a loss continues to sink the good start while a win returns them to .500. The Canucks are badly wounded but not dead, they may need this win more than the Sabres.

I want Dahlin to have his best game of the season, to show Hughes that he is the best Dman from that draft class, end of discussion from the Canadian media.

Let’s go Buffalo!

I’m on the west coast this week.  May actually get a chance to watch if work doesn’t interfere too badly.
