    6-5 Sabres

    Steve Ott puts another 9 on his jersey and infuses the power. Scores all 11 goals.

    and finishes the season as the Sabres leading scorer even after not scoring another goal after the LA game...

    Let's get these guys. Miller stands on his head and we win 3-2 in OT.

    So is Armia a go for tonight?

    Can't wait to see him play less than 5 min on the 4th line where a scoring forward belongs (in the RR "system").

    Come one RonRol... you can break his Joel's confidence too!

    I'll be at this one. Looking forward to being wanded. I hope they catch an idiot with a metal flask or pocket knife. That would be a highlight compared to what I will witness on the ice :laugh:

    I wonder if a vocal minority will chant "fire Darcy" and give the false perception on TV it's the majority. It's been happening the past few games.

    3-1 Kings

    Myers, Ennis, or Ott with the lone goal

    These young guys being integrated into Rolston's "system" -- it's like watching pigs going off to get slaughtered.

    At least a slaughterhouse has some order to it. This is more like a herd of cats directing traffic -- lots of motion in every direction and plenty of carnage but with nothing accomplished.

    but the ending is the same. something gets killed.
    Is it the fan's spirits?
    Is it the rookies' careers?


    Stay tuned to this train wreck to find out!

    Like most Rolston decisions, Larsson to the press box is a real head-scratcher.

    What the Rolston. This guy is a moron.

    I'm seeing a recurring theme of "I don't know why I was scratched" from the players. This screams a huge communication issue between Rolston and the team.

    If I'm giving feedback to the team, it would simply be, "Here's what you did wrong, here's what I want you to do, and this is your punishment." The player may not agree with your assessment, but at least they will always know why they're being benched.

    I think we should make "Rolston" a term similar to "Munson" from Kingpin, but instead of it meaning being up a creek without a paddle, it should be to explain why something inexplicable or completely moronic happened.

    Ryan Miller: "Did you hear Larsson got benched tonight? What's up with that?"
    Steve Ott: "I have no idea, he got completely Rolstoned on that one."

    I don't know what I appreciate more, the fact that someone appreciates that vastly underrated gem of a movie or how appropriate that term would be in describing Rolston's behavior. Kudos to you!
