  1. And I was right. The Sens complete yet another choke.
  2. A little bit of both. Yes I do hate Ottawa and seeing them lose would be sweet BUT the facts are the Sens droppped from 1st to 7th. Had the the season lasted one more week they would've missed it. No offense but had the Hurricanes not choke in the last couple of weeks the Sens would've been elimanted.
  3. Sharks. & anyone vs. Ottawa. No chance the Sens getting past round 1.
  4. The coach always seems to be the scapegoat. On Sabres websites we get a lot of "Fire Ruff" threads too. The Canes problems go beyond coaching.
  5. Na. Buffalo sports may have a history of choking but nothing can compare to the 2004 Yankees or the 2007 Patriots.
  6. Ottawa is a one trick pony. The only real great line they have is Spezza-Heatly-Alfredson. Once teams shut down that line, they own Ottawa. The Sens put there eggs into one basket and now they are suffering the consequnces.
  7. WHAT? Buffalo the dirtiest team in the NHL? Go on our message boards. They keep on referring to the Sabres as *edit*.
  8. Refs were horrible tonight. I'm not saying you didn't deserve to win. YOU WERE THE BETTER TEAM OUT THERE. But refs made some BS calls against us. Oh well. We get 1 point, you get 2.

  10. At least the Sabres made it a game. But they are still making too many turnovers. Should be an interesting third. GO SABRES!!!!
  11. Pitiful period by the Sabres. Some players are showing up (Miller, Hecht, Afinogenov) but overall sloppy performance. Hopefully we make it a better game. GO SABRES!!!
  12. If the Canes win then it could be a dagger into the heart of the Sabres. The Sabres need this win to keep up with Philadelphia. But here's the Tale of the Tape for the Sabres. 1. Jochen Hecht returns to the lineup. The Sabres have been struggling without him (9-24) and his return will be huge. 2. The Sabres have been playing much better on the road then they have at home (7-2 in our last 9 road games.) Good luck. Should be an interesting game. LETS GO BUFFALO!!!
  14. Ottawa was simply horrible. The Sabres defense has held them to only 11 shots in the first two periods. The highest scoring team in the league. THE SENS LACK HEART!! They have a lot of talent but no heart. They will not go far into the playoffs this year.
  15. It should be interesting to see Corvo in your lineup. I think Corvo will do fine in his first game with you. Boston sucks on offense and that will help Corvo adjust to your system. BTW GO CANES!! WE NEED YOU TO BEAT BOSTON TONIGHT!!
  16. I think they made the right call. After they said that Zednick was in stable condition everyone took a sigh of relief. Also Buffalo is known to finish games like these. We finished the Clint Malarchuck game, we finished the Kevin Everett game so as long as Zednick was alright I don't see why they wouldn't finish the game.
  17. For those who didn't see it here it is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzU5z8byUkI I didn't see it live by I heard it by radio. VERY SCARY MOMENT!!!! I was worried that he died. My thoughts and prayers go out to him.
  18. That maybe true but I'm not the one who first noticed this. MSG looked at the standings a few days ago and our color commentaor Harry Neal said "it would be a SHAME if the Hurricanes won the division but finished below 9th." I'm not the only one who's thinking this. After Neal said that I thought "how what would people think if a division winner finished below 9th place."
  19. Ok. Yes we should focus on Boston next but we can't forget about the Southeast. Right now the Eastern Conference is WIDE open. The only teams that I THINK are out of it right now is Toronto & Tampa Bay. (Yes mathmatically they are still in it but those organizations are messes). I don't see them pulling out dramatic comebacks to get back into the hunt. We are tied with Washington 1 point ahead of Carolina & Atlanta & 2 ahead of Florida. Granted come March, unless something dramatic happens, THESE ARE THE TEAMS WE WILL BE COMPETING FOR THE FINAL PLAYOFF SPOT
  20. Ok. Here's another suggestion. The division winner gets an automatic playoff birth but not the #3 seed. A lot of people think that it's too high up. You get the position you finished within the conference. However if you finish below 8th then you automaticly get the 8th seed.
  21. I have mix feelings about this about this. Yes you should be awarded for winning your division but it wouldn't be fair if you won the division but finished below 9th place. Right now IMO the Sabres would be screwed out of a playoff spot. I think the NHL should do this. Rearrange the league into 2 conferences 2 divisions in each conference. One 8 team division and one 7 team division for each conference. Playoffs system would be what was done in the NHL before 1993, and what's used in the AHL now. #1 team in division faces #4 team #2 team in division faces #3 team Winners meet in Division Finals. Division champions meet in Conference finals Conference champions meet for Stanley Cup Finals.
  22. I like Darcy Regier as a GM to tell you the truth. Ever since he got here in 1997 we got to the Eastern Conferenc Finals 4 TIMES (ALMOST 5) in his tenure. Alot of people blame the Sabres downfall on Darcy's business partner Larry Quinn. I think he should be fired first, and we should let Darcy rebuild this team alone (like he did in 2005.)
  23. http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?id=3198269''>http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?id=3198269' target="_blank">http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?id=3198269[/post] We're not going to trade him. Sorry but you're going to have to wait until July 1st to MAYBE get Soupy. <_<
  24. I just really want management to get SOMEONE, ANYONE, in here. I was angry that we lost Briere & Drury, but what made this offseason worse was that we got NOBODY in return. And instead of shopping for somebody this team needed management spent $10 million on Vanek. I am starting to admit that the Sabres are not a playoff team this year I can't wait to see how management responds to this garbage season.
  25. Look at our own message boards. There are a lot of Sabres fans that want Vanek traded, it's not just me. Looking at how tight the Eastern Confernce is I think the Sabres are a trade or two away from getting back into contention. I'm just looking at some players that are sturggling and seeing who we can get rid of and who we can get back. I'm looking at Vanek, Kalinin & Max because they've been struggling the most. I'm trying to decide who can we trade FOR SOMEONE WHO WILL IMPROVE ON THE WEAKNESSES OF OUR TEAM, SUCH AS A STRONG GRITTY DEFENSEMEN OR FOR SOME VETERAN LEADERSHIP!!!!!
