    The only way I see the kids in Rochester get called up is with an injury to one of the starters.It is truly sad.I want to see Olofoson ,Nylander and Ghule NOW. I am tired of waiting on JB and Housley.The fan base wants these kids up period.Why can't Management realize it?

    The better argument would be why Poms, Sobotka, and Okposo over any of the top AHL guys.. we know what we're getting from those 3, and it's not good.

    I expect him to be called up after the trade deadline so he's eligible for the AHL playoffs.

    Agree. Okposo is okay - but not for anywhere's $6 million per season.

    The other two should join Moulson with Ontario of the AHL....

    Agreed, I don't mind him as the most expensive grinder in the league- Poms is the one that drives me nuts. Was always weak and ineffective outside of the scoresheet, age has not helped.

    Pominville is absolutely one of my least all time favorite Sabres.

    Scored some timely goals - in the day, but too soft for my liking.

    Wears high heeled skates like Housley did...

    Dude me too! So many points, so little impact on the game. Great finisher, I guess, but to think he has 700 points.. jeez. How? He's invisible 99.9% of the time. His one saving grace was that playoff winner against OTT wayyy back in the day, but he's been trash ever since. Hated him for the majority of his first stint, having him back feels like hockey herpes.

    why call up the Rochester players when we all know Housley will start him at right press box and then after 4 games move him to left press box

    I would not waste my money. One of the kids is already up - CJ Smith. He came up and played well. He was rewarded with a press box seat while Tage Toedragson, Pominslow, Suckposo and Sloth-botka continue to play games and suck. Face it - Housley's not going to play the young guys.

    Not sure bringing the kids up would be best for their development. Rather let them win in Rochester than be exposed to whatever the issue is in Buffalo right now.

    What kids?

    You mean Ullmark, Dahlin, Pilut, Nelson, Mittelstadt, Thompson, Eichel, Reinhart, Ristolainen and Rodriguez?

    Got news people, Nylander and Olofsson for Pominville and Okposo doesn't change a damn thing right now.

    Neither does a new coach.

    Stews just starting to simmer.
