B: The Sabres
U: The Sabres under the Pegula ownership
the rest but ESPECIALLY Housley
this board's expectations during the summer
Angry Risto (when he shows up)
Sobotka (yes, I liked him tonight)
Girgs-ERod-Poms is a legit NHL 4th line
Pretty much everything else
Dahlin was very good.
Jack Eichel made $122,000 tonight.
I have no words.
that was just oh so bad. can a coach be fired after one game, cause it looked like they rounded up a bunch of guys and threw them on ice with no direction
This! Housley deserves to be fired! Team completely out played and looked emotionless! Sick of watching this crap!
this team has plenty of issues, but I feel like it's almost pointless trying to solve most of them for as long as Housley is the coach
Mittelstadt doesn't need any time in the AHL - he looked good
The way this team plays hockey.
bad : phillhouse/everyone
ugly : all those cross-ice/drop passes to no one
He almost made my good list. If he develops right, he'll be a great 2nd line center behind Jack
I liked Okposo
Might be ahead of Jack if he develops right.
Eich tryna do too much
Passes to nowhere, no cohesiveness
So... tell me more about this Hughes kid...
Same old same old. Housley needs to go.
I thought Okposo looked decent.
I am not gonna go nuclear after one game against a desperate bruins team but i am not gonna be patient for long.
When I remembered today that Sabres were playing the Bruins, i was like. Bleh. I knew the Bruins would lul the Sabres to sleep. They always do. It was worse under Claude Julien. But this Bruins team is still mostly the same.
Bad way to start the season. Better put the region on suicide watch. the whiner line should be interesting tomorrow.
Even strength ozone play/scoring chance generation was extremely concerning for me. We won't win until that is drastically fixed. Lol @ myself for criticizing Pominville for the entire offseason yet him and Erod created the only 2 scoring chances tonight. I'm sure he'll prove me right before long though.
Also this team isn't going anywhere until Mittelstadt becomes an impact 2C. There's just no consistent offensive threats outside of the top line & Dahlin (and Pominville).
you are aware players are NOT paid per game, aren't you? They are paid per day on the roster
That's not a good effort.
what a boring brand of hockey they play
Jack Eichel, "It's hard to win games in this league."
I feel like I have been stuck in a loop for a while with these Buffalo sports teams.
I'll take Lindy Ruff for 1$, Alex.
