Quint Posted March 7 Report Share Posted March 7 (edited) Maybe it's not fair to judge by first impressions but sometimes it tells you important things about a person. I watched his presser today which I couldn't get all the way through. The first question was about what was his reaction he was coming to Buffalo. I noticed that he didn't look very happy and he shook his head from side to side a lot. His head and eyes were down much of the time. He said he was excited to be part of the Sabres but he kept shaking his head and looking doward and his body language seemed to contradict what he was saying. Maybe it's attitude, fatigue or he's just not a good interview. (from changingminds.org: Turning the head from side to side usually indicates disagreement or disapproval and may originate in infant refusal of food) As for the game, he had a couple of interesting scrums in the corners in both the first and the second but it seemed he was benched (?) in the third. He will be a ton to take care of behind the net. He made a couple of good defensive plays and got a routine wrister off from long distance which was a can of corn for the goalie. I didn't get much of an impression of him making his presence felt except in a scrum or two. I didn't notice Jordan much at all in the third. I'm not going to read too much into this first performance, especially with two of our top guys out of the lineup in Tuch and Samuelson and also Stillman, forcing to play Bryson and Clague. There was a disjointed feel to this game. It started off well then the Oilers took over and it seemed as if the Sabres were never really in synch. Lot of missed chances. The Wild fans say that although he has a lot of physical gifts, but he's lazy. We'll see. Edited March 7 by Quint 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
