    I think Thompson really made his presence shown. I liked his game.

    Wouldn't necessarily call Reinhart good tonight. He did make a nice play for the goal.

    It's crazy how bad the team looks at even strength when you start to add players like Kyle Okposo, Rasmus Ristolainen and Johan Larsson back into the line-up. It's almost like they're trash 5 on 5 players.

    Too many shades of last season in this game, pretty disappointing loss to the Marlies mostly.

    Berglund looked like he didn’t care
    Risto is not getting any better. I thought this was the year the light went on. Not a one game commentary just had higher expectations foe him.

    We constantly looked pressured and rushed, passes into feet, dumping the puck out to relieve pressure. Just no polish in our game at all. That performance against a mostly AHL squad really laid a big egg on my hype for this season.

    Only things I really liked were Reinhart, Thompson at times, and Hutton's puck handling. Top line was pretty good. On to the next one.

    UGLY:

    The amount of Toronto fans that attend turning our homes games into theirs, its gotta be demoralizing on the players getting cheered against in your own barn.

    It really does suck. They should only sell tickets to Buffalo residents, but that's not really realistic. Not really sure what else can be done about it, with the secondary market and such.

    Leafs are the most unlikeable team and fanbase in sports, they make the Pats look like angels

    The Sabres looked lost and confused trying to play Housley's system. The defense was totally out of sync with the forwards. Fire Housley. Do it now. Save the season.

    We will be a bottom 5 team unless we fire Housley.

    It just feels like we could make a change and would still see the same lacklustre play, must be something in the water in Buffalo.

    Anyway that's my last preseason hot take of the night, just what a bummer that was.

    Okposo getting top PP minutes while not deserving such reminds me of Moulson 2 years ago. We're so desperate to salvage another Murray sticker contract that we're pushing a player that has no right to be there.

    Of course given all those top PP minutes with better players KO will pot a few. But the reality is. KO is one year away from being buried in the minors like Moulson was. Because there is no place for him on a team that needs to move forward.

    Our biggest loss was losing Babcock, not McDavid.

    I only saw the third, but I didn't think it was that bad. We outplayed them but couldn't find the back of the net, while they scored a weaksauce goal on the weaksauciest kind of penalty.

    Eichel's line looked really good, but obviously we can't just rely on one line.

    The people in charge don't want to admit they made a terrible mistake hiring him and are completely willing to throw away another season because they don't have the guts to do the right thing.

    The only solution is to get good again. Back to the way it used to be, when we’d beat them every time they came to Buffalo.

    There’s no way to stop the obnoxious Leafs fans from coming. But you can shut them up once they get there.

    I've always thought this. Their tank team was better at possession than any of the post-Eichel teams. It's ridiculous.

    When you spend almost a decade doing everything you can to kill off your fanbase with stupidity and incompetence that's what happens.

    Babcock would have signed here if we won the lotto.

    At least if you turned on MSG a few hours early you got to see a Toronto team lose #ForzaMetro #NYISRED #JozySucks #SoDoesBradley
