    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 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

    He almost made my good list. If he develops right, he'll be a great 2nd line center behind Jack

    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

    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.
