I guess we can have a thread for a shiatshow that will be Coyotes v Sabres
 
2021-10-16 12:39:07 PM  
On CBC over-the-air, Hockey Night in Canada has the battle of Ontario followed by the battle of Alberta followed by After Hours. I think I will watch the 3rd periods and After Hours.

I thought there was gonna be a shiat show of Coyotes vs CBJ and that just turned out to be a slaughter.

I'm bracing myself for a few of those this season.

FYI:

Coyotes @ Sabres is on NHL Network

If you are doing streaming through ESPN+ in the USA (which now has all out of market streaming), NHL Network games won't be available live on there.

NHL Center Ice is doing a preview week so for me, I'm watching the Coyotes feed of the game there.

I had it for the summer (since I did almost all of the submissions for the European soccer tournament and the Tokyo Olympics), but I pulled back after those were done.

I want every Toronto game to start 30 minutes later so the Leafs are awake for the 1st period.

That is Andrew Ladd's first NHL goal since before the Covid shutdown (March 10, 2020)

The Leafs had better pray nothing happens to Jack Campbell tonight:

The #leafs don't have the cap space to call up a goaltender to take Petr Mrazek's spot behind Jack Campbell tonight. They will likely sign U of T goalie Alex Bishop to an amateur tryout to back up Campbell.

How can anyone be so tight to the cap that they can't call up a backup goalie? That's pathetic.

For those who enjoyed the "Watch a Leafs Game With Steve Dangle" streams from the playoffs, Sportsnet is having him do all of the Saturday Leafs games this season.  The first installment is tonight's game against Ottawa (offer only valid for those in Canada or with a VPN that can convince You Tube that you're in Canada):

Ask the 13 teams with higher cap hits.

Thanks!  From the headline's tone, I was worried that someone had had to do an emergency submission at 12:25pm ET or something.  I submitted a headline for today's games as well this morning, so I wanted to double check that it had been redlit because someone else's had been greened first and not because it was missed.

A Buffalo stick keeps the Coyotes from scoring on the very brief delayed penalty

Looking at Cap Friendly, it appears that each one of those teams had the good sense to have players get decently injured to free up cap space via LTIR.  Except Vancouver, they also have $0 in current cap space.

I looked at tickets for this game and they were $98 on seatgeek 30 minutes prior to the game. Why they thought they could get that with the attendance the way it is, I have no idea. I should've been able to get a ticket for like $10

It was me ( been out stimulating the economy/getting groceries so missed this earlier).  It was about a half hour before your's iirc. Neither had been greenlit when we ventured out to mingle with the masses. So, however that fits into your timeline.
 
2021-10-16 2:53:47 PM  
That said Krueger must have been a truly awful coach considering that this team is playing night and day with Granato. These games have been fun to watch with the Sabres actually generating offense and not giving up easy 2-on-1s.

Yeah, I thought about going Thursday night but people still wanted stupid money for even the cheap seats.

Which is probably part of the reason there were like 6000 people there. Doesn't look like too many more today.

I wonder what the announced attendance will be because I feel like this is worse than even the worst attended Coyotes game

/Wikipedia says Buffalo's arena holds 19,000
//I'm putting the over/under on actual butts in seats there today at 7,000

I flat out guarantee that exemption.is the first thing to go in the next CBA.  Then we'll see some crazy stuff.

Official reported attendance for Thursday was 8,467 from what I'm reading.

18,690. I can't remember the last time the Sabres were at capacity. We're spending all our money on Bills tickets and tables to bring to Nashville.

2-1 after 3 shooters. Damn, Tokarski almost had the first one!
 
2021-10-16 3:35:13 PM  
Tokarski made up for it by saving Kessel's shot at the 5 hole!
 
2021-10-16 3:35:46 PM  
Olafsson rocketed it wide somehow.
 
2021-10-16 3:36:14 PM  
He missed! BUFFALO IS 2-0-0!!!!! WHAT
 
2021-10-16 3:37:14 PM  
Wow!  If I had put $100 down in Vegas a week ago that the Sabres would win their first two games, I could be retired right now.
 
2021-10-16 3:37:14 PM  
Well, that was mostly a better game from the Coyotes. But the better team on the day won in the shootout and that wasn't the Coyotes.

According to the Sportsnet article on the situation, teams are able to get emergency cap relief after having to play one game with a shorter bench. The other option would have been to send a player down to the AHL and play for a game short a forward or (less likely) a defenseman.

Bad teams generally face a weaker, less prepared lineup. People will be taking Buffalo lightly and paying the price for it.
 
2021-10-16 4:04:18 PM  
And BTW, Buffalo just past Pittsburg and Vancouver to have the best record in the whole NHL.
