Buffalo Sabres

There’s a similar theme to the Buffalo Sabres 2017-18 season carried over from 2016-17. What’s the issue I’m talking about you ask? It’s secondary scoring. One of the main objectives on the offseason agenda was to rectify this concern. New general manager Jason Botterill did make some moves to fix the scoring problem, but there are no

The Buffalo Sabres defeated the Anaheim Ducks Sunday night, 3-1 for their first win of the season. On one hand, the goose egg in the win column is officially gone; the monkey is off their back. Phil Housley has his first win as a head coach. After being called up from Rochester, Justin Bailey infused

The sky isn’t falling in Buffalo. It’s not time to panic. Then again, that all depends on your expectations. If you thought players brought together who were jettisoned by other teams, deemed expendable and not part of their future, would somehow flourish in the birthplace of chicken wings, you were a cockeyed optimist. If you

Last year was supposed to be the season that we saw real growth from the Buffalo Sabres. With a roster that includes Jack Eichel, Ryan O’Reilly, Kyle Okposo, Evander Kane, and Rasmus Ristolainen, the team was going to break the drought of five playoff-less seasons. And then, just as Eichel fell in practice the day

Free-agent forward Jimmy Vesey chose dirty-water dogs, Broadway lights and the New York Rangers. Free agent goalie Cal Petersen opted for the film industry, Sunset Boulevard and the Los Angeles Kings. For Sabres fans, let’s hope with defenseman Will Butcher, the third time is the charm and he opts for chicken wings, Canalside and the

For the first time in several seasons, the Sabres defense will not be the glaring weakness of the team. The lack of depth caused some major problems with the team over the past few seasons, forcing players on defense to play larger roles than necessary. In addition, there was a lack of organizational depth. There

Judging by the comments on social media and around the water cooler, you get the feeling that Robin Lehner could win the Vezina Trophy and still be hated in Buffalo. Murray’s Man Fans can’t seem to look past the fact that former Sabres general manager, Tim Murray, traded away a first round pick to get

One of the biggest acquisitions was Marco Scandella from the Minnesota Wild. Going the other way were left wingers Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno. This has left a hole on
