    I hated the Lehner trade, but liked Lehner. His play, poor stats from backing up a terrible team, and his off-ice drama made it impossible to trade him and very risky to keep him. It's just another case of things going wrong for Buffalo, with blame going in at least two directions. Getting sober and playing in a Trotz system is going to bump up any goalie's stats. Good for him, but that just wasn't going to happen in Buffalo. Except for the fantasies running through my mind every night about what that draft pick could be right now for Buffalo...I'm over it...I swear...

    Man, goaltending and special teams have been killing us lately. Hutton and Ullmark have both had their sv% progressively dropping over the course of the season. We need at least one of them to step up soon if we're gonna stay in the fight for a wildcard spot.

    Want to? Nobody on our team wants to block shots, doesn't mean thats how they should play.

    Aside from the dubious nature of the "Sam doesn't want to play center" idea, I've never really seen why it mattered. If putting Reinhart at center, or at least trying him there, helps the team then Housley should be doing it regardless of Reinhart's view on the matter. Housley's the coach, not Reinhart.

    I really like this graphic! I was actually just looking at the tale of two PDOs between these clubs over the last 25 games...

    If we lose to Robin Lehner in a shootout I will break things.

    At this point, the ship is sinking at the rate of molasses.

    I’d settle for ahl callups instead of pommers and Sobotka producing absolutely nothing.

    Did you know that in addition to being a legendary mascot Sabretooth also serves as an effective theft deterrent: 20190212_161046.jpg

    If you lose to Lehner in a shootout, things will spontaneously break before you even get to them.

    LGA tweeted about it, but the ironic thing is that he's not really a "kid." He's 24, which is older than Jack, Sam, Casey, and Thompson, all of whom Housley relies upon heavily (save Tage, who still gets more burn than he should given his ability and propensity for mistakes). He's 11 months younger than Girgs, FFS. I understand that he doesn't have the NHL experience that those guys do, but how is he going to get it if you don't play him?

    Well, he's literally never lost in regulation to his former teams, so...better hope for OT or a shootout.

    It bewilders me beyond my wildest imaginations how you can call up Smith and press box him. It’s stupid.

    I take it as conclusive proof of the existence of parallel universes.

    Would rather see Hutton but have a feeling Skeichel will light the lamp. Here we go!
