Ron's trying to instill a bit of grit into Grigorenko.  His battle's been improving so I hope Ott gets him going.  It's good for Grigorenko to learn the way hockey needs to be played if you're going to win in the playoffs.  I hope Grigo gets another point and keeps building his confidence.

Scratching Zadorov for McBain? Ugh.  I wish we traded Andrej for the pick straight up.

Hmm why is Foligno scratched? Is he injured? I missed that somehow.

When i look on our lineup it should not be outperformed like they were and propably will be.

I think we have the tools to be a hard working middle of the pack nhl team.

Of course it is better to tank because of the draft, but for the fans this is nuts.

Playing Stafford is essential to securing the best possibly odds for the no. 1 pick lottery.

This from Paul Hamilton: Sabres Foligno may find himself sitting out

Marcus Foligno had done a nice job with shutting down Steven Stamkos of the Lightning not once, but twice. Against Anaheim on Saturday Foligno was very soft on coverage twice that turned into Ducks goals.

Foligno had a horrible game last time out. Not sure if he is hurt... could be.

The over and under for goals by the Sharks be at least 6.

If having a bad game is the grounds for sitting out then we would be lucky to dress one line. My biggest (of many) problems with RR is he has no balls. Sit Stafford, Myers, or any veteran once in awhile you wimp.

Whew. I was up at 4 a.m. and just finished a seven-mile run. Today, I'll be working with the Amish to raise a barn, well, two barns. And tonight for dinner we're having turkey and all the fixins, with warm milk and pecan pie for dessert. What time does the game start? Gee, I hope I have something left in the tank.

This game will be a real test for East Coast diehards....Will I make it through to the end of the game? Hmmm.

SJ has 7 players with 10 or more pts this season... Buffalo has 2 and 1 of them is Moulson.

So Zadorov is not playing 20minutes tonight in all situations?  Sounds like Foligno is not as well?   Good thing we have Drew Stafford and Jamie McBain.  :death:

For the life of me I just don't get it. Neither Stafford or McBain are here next year. If they are not part of the plan then why aren't you giving as much experience as possible to those that are in the plan? It has to be either play them or send them to Rochester our back to jr's.  It can't be musical chairs in the press box.

I could deal with this loosing crap a hell of a lot better if it wasn't one stupid ass decision after another.

You must be assuming that Stafford will be an offseason buyout.   I hope you're right unless some team is willing to gamble on him in a deal with the Sabres so that Darcy gets something for him.

I'll probably watch the first period tonight but I'm not staying up to 1 or 130 and then dragging azz all day tomorrow if they are going to go with their usual effort level.  We will see how the first goes I guess.

Set your alarm for the 3rd. Thats when the Sharks will take their foot off the gas and the Sabres will appear somewhat good but by then it'll be too late.

GO SABRES ! yeah, whateva !

I've also more or less decided not to spend a dime on this team until DR is gone.

I have not even watched a full period of non Sabres hockey this year. I can't imagine I will watch a full Sabres game from start to finish on tv until next year. It really is amazing how little interest I have in hockey right now.

Discussion going on in the "fantasy" gambling thread....

San Jose is a -550 favorite tonight at one place, and averaging -450.

That translates to Buffalo only having a 17% chance to win the game tonight.

Only once in a blue moon do you see stuff like this in hockey. It opened at -330, and everyone and their Aunt Bessy have brought their piggy banks in on the Sharks.
