    Dahlin, this kid is going to be scary good.
    Eichel
    Hutton

    U

    In fairness to our lower skilled players Housley's player usage is terrible.

    Good
    Eichel
    Pominville
    Skinner

    Bad
    Hutton: Cannot allow the butt goal, that is what cost us the game
    Risto: Best player for Ottawa tonight
    Lack of finish by our forwards: We should have had 10 tonight

    Ugly
    Housley: Elie over EROD? Playing Risto so much
    Botterill: Pilut is not better than our D? He'd easily be our #1
    Pegula: For continuously hiring clowns as GM and coach

    Where was this effort by Eichel in previous years.... ?


    It is so noticeable

    Guy is everywhere this year.

    2 lines does not make a hockey team.

    I agree but he needs to attack the net more. I still think the injuries play in the back of his head. Yes he carries the play but I mean really attack the net with the puck. He doesn't seem to want to use his speed to beat the defenders. Ankle?

    We will be a bottom feeder again if we can't get some secondary scoring. This roster needs a shakeup (talking about calling up / sending down guys, not a trade), and Okposo needs to be benched.

    Typical Sabres from the last few years, wait until its 3-0 before you decide to wake up.

    They better dominate on Saturday. They have no excuse losing after showing what they can do in the third.

    I knew we weren’t gonna pull it off after skinner couldn’t bury his primo opportunity.

    Being a two line team is awful. Our first line was exhausted by end of this game.

    KO needs to go. Whatever that “pass” was with the EN should be a one way ticket upstairs to the pressbox

    He’s in a focused role that fits his skill set very well. Same with Girgs. Plus they seem to play well when together.

    Lines 2 and 3 need something. I don’t know what. Put them in a blender. At least find chemistry between 2 guys and then go from there. The Eichel line or bust scoring just isn’t cutting it. That said the Eichel line could have had 6 or 7 tonight from the little I saw. Posts and “quarter of an inch, Charlie”s all night long.

    Hutton, could’ve easily been a huge blowout

    B:
    No single shift for 4th line in last 6min of the 3rd period,
    Didn’t show up again in first 2 periods


    U:
    The new boards installed in few arenas, that 2nd OTT bounce goal was just unlucky, i felt bad for Hutton

    I'd disagree strongly. They generated as many chances as Ottawa in the first 2 periods. They simply did not finish

    Because our 4th line is actually working. Why would he split it up? The idiocy is that he drew in Elie over Rodrigues.
