    Housley vs Trotz is a far bigger mismatch than Bambi vs Godzilla so I'm not really liking our chances on Tuesday. And assuming MegaBus doesn't cancel my bus at the last minute I will be there to witness what is likely to be a total debacle live and in person. Yay.

    Team played well for the most part. Well enough to win even, just not well enough to beat Hellebyuck. We had chances we didn't bury, and it came back to bite us in the ass.

    If he isnt fired soon we will become the new Edmonton Oilers. Ownership is too infatuated with ex-players, and having people in power that they can control. I have defended the Pegulas in the past, and still am happy that they saved the team, but the way things are happening you can look back and see where it all went wrong like a trail of breadcrumbs.

    As soon as the Bill's were in the fold the sabres became an afterthought, and ownership went from focusing on a building a championship team, to focusing on building a sports empire. Too many moving parts, no plan or focus, the need to have people who wont rock the boat and cause problems, too much energy is needed just to maintain order, not enough left over to move forward.

    They might be able to beat the rags, but they'll be in tough.

    Thats a bit of an overreaction I'd say considering it worked a couple games ago against Carolina and numerous times earlier in the season

    Major reason why Wheeler was open for the GWG, and major reason why Aho had plenty of time in the Carolina game to find Faulk.

    He’s been really bad lately in other areas as well. Can’t receive a pass from our guys for some reason.

    Dahlin had Wheeler and then just let him go. Both goals were pretty much his fault.

    Now that we lost, we’ll see Smith in for ERod and Nate the Great in for Pilut

    Bambi cooks parts of himself as Godzillas dinner and then tricks him into having potatoes with the steak in hope of Godzilla choking on said potato.*
    What other possible positive outcomes are there?

    *Completely missing the fact that Godzilla is a carnivore and has a huge mouth.

    1. We should start setting picks often starting next game. If the NHL won't call them, then we need to take advantage of them.

    2. I don't want to see Ristolainen on this team any longer going forward. He's just not part of our future.

    Agreed. I hate the cautious approach they're taking! Since our winning streak we haven't exactly had our **** together. When's the last time we've even won a back to back? Bring the youth up already, you owe it to us fans. We've watched enough poorly iced teams.

    Almost.. they can clean it up and Jets are a cheap team with picks ..slewfoot etc.. We were predictable and tentative on pp with physical team denying entry.. No consolation but played well , didnt finish ..and kids were forced into key mistakes.. Im still in .. Watching progress ..learning..

    I wouldn't say that I want to trade Risto. But somebody needs to reprogram him. His first 4 years in the league, it was enough, good, even, to just flip the puck out without a care in the world.

    But willingly tossing possession away should no longer be acceptable, especially when Mark Scheifele is on the ice. He needs to work this out of his game. He's a passable passer when he chooses to do that, but far too often he doesn't even take a second to see if he's got teammates available, and now that Bylsma is gone, they usually are.

    Yea, he played well. Glad he had a nice game. We need both goalies to be steady and pretty consistent.

    I want Housley fired too but we should at least acknowledge that he was a pretty hot commodity when we signed him. I don't think hiring him in the first place was necessarily a bad call.
