But you can buffalo a buffalo, especially if it's from Buffalo. Actually, the Buffalo buffalo are experts at buffaloing buffalo, but they don't travel much so they stick to buffaloing other Buffalo buffalo.

Sure. Just throw a buffaslug in there and see what happens.

LOL.  Sabres can't even tank correctly.

BTW, everyone was preoccupied by the Penguins' streak, but NBC Sports hardly mentioned the other mark set yesterday.  Ryan Miller passed Dominik Hasek to become the Sabres' all-time leader in games played.

And depending on how things go today, that may have been his final game as a Sabre as well.  I guess we'll see.

Saw what you will about the Slug.  I still liked it better than the snorting goathead jerseys it replaced.

At least the Slug had the right general color scheme.  Red and Black were never proper Sabres colors, and I was so happy to be done with them.

Not surprising- the win on Saturday was pretty emotional because of Crosby, but the Pens just came out flat in this game.  Hopefully they can pick up the pieces and get it back together.

Alot of people in Pburg are blaming Tyler Kennedy for last night's loss...but that's just how Pburg fans are. A third line center bumping to the top line just won't happen overnight.The whole team was lacklustre...but i think it was just a bad game, one of those games that happen every now and again.

Good for Ryan Miller and his record at Buffalo. He's one of my favorite players in the league. A great goalie and a seemingly all-around good dude.

The ESPN article recapping the game mentioned it.

I told my Pittsburgh fan friends "I don't care about the season anymore, and Bioshock Infinite just arrived, so I'll be paying attention to that instead." Later on I added: "Felicia Day is not my girlfriend, and I don't care about that either"

Huh, that's actually a quite interesting backstory on the slug. People frequently mix up my Sabres buffaslug hat for a Chargers hat, I guess if the slug was inspired by the Bolt people aren't as dumb as I thought.

Ehrhoff has been unarguably the Sabres' best and most consistent defenseman this season. Plus the only one really dangerous from the point.

He's the one Sabres d-man I wouldn't be interested in trading out of the whole lot.
 
2013-04-03 02:47:14 PM  
I disagree.  I have found that by listening to the games, rather than watching I get a better feel.  And really all I hear from Ehrhoff is 'turnover', 'misplay', and 'can't corral the puck'.  I have been less than impressed with him all year.

There is a very real possibilty Columbus makes the playoffs this year while New York misses them. Not a likely one, but its there.

Of course, next year both teams will get to light up Mason, so there's that to look forward to.

My major problem with Feaster is that it was obvious that the Flames' core wasn't going to get it done more than two years ago. If he'd offloaded his players THEN, he might have actually gotten a return and been able to rebuild the team without bottoming out. However, he waited, got next to nothing for his assets, and now the Flames are going to suck HARD for the next few years... it's going to be a rough time in southern Alberta.

This leads to two questions: 1) How does he still have a job? 2) How does he plan to re-acquire Jokinen this summer?

Go Oilers!
 
2013-04-03 04:18:12 PM  
Wow, I see the Coyotes sold off a few pieces. But the only one who did anything of note here was Torres (and I don't just mean becoming public enemy #1 in Chicago).  But that means they saved him from going to Chicago since the Sharks are done with the Hawks, unless they meet in the playoffs.
 
2013-04-03 04:42:07 PM  
So the Flyers send Bobrovsky to Columbus, then end up getting the guy he replaced to help in trying to shore up their own issues in goal? Christ.

Also, I really dislike the Gaborik trade from the BJ's perspective. It's nothing that will ruin them or anything, and I guess that was their logic - a chance to make a big splash without selling off the farm - but I'll be surprised if it pays dividends.

Bishop for Conacher. That thing has potential to be looked back on as something huge for both teams.

And, at the risk of sounding like a douche, it wasn't so much the trades that happened today, it was the ones that didn't. Was sure a few more fairly prominent names were on the move.

2013-04-03 05:35:14 PM  
Actually The Shoveller, the only thing I would say is that the Flames became the mini-Maple Leafs in that we were still selling out the Saddledome every night despite an on-ice product that would likely never get the job done.

I would argue that it was a management decision to ride Iggy and Kipper into the ground to keep the seats filled for as utterly long as possible.

There's not a doubt in my mind right now that they are worried about losing season ticket holders after this most thorough gutting.

Rev.K:

I'm sure they'll lose some seats, but this town is big enough (and hell knows there's enough money) that I think the season tickets won't take too much of a hit. However, it wouldn't surprise me all that much if fewer people actually  used the tickets (i.e., the ticket base stays roughly the same, but the attendance drops).

Hopefully the town buys into the rebuild, and people start developing some optimism. Of course it's management's job to make people optimistic via decent drafting.....

I want the Oilers to be the better team, but there's not much fun to be had when it's not competitive.

Dregger on TSN was saying Vancouver called Toronto 3 times between 2 and 3 trying to get Luongo delt, 3rd time was close (why he was pulled from practice) but not close enough for Nonis...  first two were Scrivens and a variety of picks, third one dropped Scrivens and the Leafs still wouldn't bite on that contract.

I'm pretty sure Feaster has been a good company man since he got hired.  He is just doing what ownership is telling him to do, and making the best of a bad situation.  Ownership didn't want to blow the team up, so Feaster stood in front of the media and fibbed that the Flames were contenders.

Drafting Baertschi  was a good move, trading Rene Bourque for  Cammalleri was a good move, signing Hudler and Wiseman as free agents were good moves ...

It is a deep draft, anywhere in the top ten or so is golden, but it drops off from there... but like most years there are a few winning picks into the third round, but they typically are three or four years out at best...  I hope Flames fans are okay with a few more years pain for some long term gain...
