I hope Pominville doesn't score the game winning goal against the Sabres......again.   If Regier were still GM, I would definitely want one of those bobble-head figures.

BTW,  I just checked stats - with 17 goals so far this season, Pommers is 12th overall in the NHL.      The Sabres' highest scoring player - Cody Hodgson, has less than 50% of the output of Pommer with 8 goals - his rank is 134th in the league.

Amazing, the Sabres lack of scoring.    I didn't count Moulson since half of his goals this year were scored with the Islanders.  Since he's joined the Sabres, his production has dropped.

At least there's a bobble-head to screw up.  Have there been Sabres players bobbles offered?    I just did a quick search on Ebay - I didn't see any Buffalo Sabres bobbles, other than a generic "Sabres" player.

I will always miss Pominville and I think he was a much better goal scorer than we ever realized.

I was mildly surprised he didn't get invited to the Olympic camp this summer.

And he was the one guy whose trade really stunned me.  I like his over all game - he may not be great at any one thing but he is very good in all aspects.

I always liked Pommer and will never forget that OT goal he scored against Ottawa but this team was stale and needed to rebuild.  The trade brought in (hopefully) at min 2 key building blocks for the future.  I wish him well.

I don't give a crap what kind of season Pommer or Vanek or any other ex-Sabre has (with the exception of Goose because he plays for the Preds).  Lest we forget, the team has been awful the past several years and it needed to be fundamentally changed.

I'm sure there is a relationship analogy in there somewhere, but pining for your ex is never healthy.  :D

Disagree, it needed changes, but it didn't require ditching every player with talent they had and only using the draft to rebuild. A good GM would have been able to make moves to bring in talent to go with the top guys they had and build off of what was here.

Problem is you can only trade players that other teams want. Nobody wants the players we NEED to get rid of. Such as Stafford/Leino.

Pominville is the only player we have traded in the last few years that I wish we hung onto. I think he truly enjoyed being a Sabre and would have resigned. It also might have helped keep Miller here.

Harding had been on IR to adjust his MS treatment. Guessing he's still not feeling well.

True, you can only trade guys that other teams want, but theres also picks and prospects that can be moved instead of hording them, and FA.
The biggest problem with Darcy was that he was never willing to let go of a prospect until they knew exactly what they had in him, which lowers the value because its harder to trade someone on the basis of them "maybe needing a change of scenery" compared to "Just haven't reached their possible potential".

He stopped playing the Sabres 8 times a year? :w00t:

No, seriously - He's been on the decline ever since his second season with the Sharks.

Could be age, could be the fact that the western conference is tougher.

I'm not going to get deep into something so tragic but that's not true at all.  Firstly they were best friends and there was no intent at all.  Secondly Snyder's parents did not want to press any charges and acknowledged it was an accident.  It was not because he was a professional athlete and if you don't think he carries that burden with him everyday then you're just wrong.

82 Marcus Foligno – 22 Johan Larsson – 17 Linus Omark

This should be an interesting line combo.

Omark seemed to be playing a little better in his last game.

Hopefully Foligno and Larsson can retreive some pucks and create a little space for Omark to get some SOG.

Omark has a nice shot; his shoot out attempt really demonstrated to me the type of shot the kid has.

Hopefully he can get one into the back of the net tonight.

82 Marcus Foligno – 22 Johan Larsson – 17 Linus Omark

This should be an interesting line combo.

Omark seemed to be playing a little better in his last game.

Hopefully Foligno and Larsson can retreive some pucks and create a little space for Omark to get some SOG.

Omark has a nice shot; his shoot out attempt really demonstrated to me the type of shot the kid has.

Hopefully he can get one into the back of the net tonight.

Hope the FLO line shows us something so Leino can stay in the Press Box.

He might be hitching a ride on the buyout train.

Hurts to see him wearing #23.

Hopefully we'll see some blood out there.  Just hope they can avoid the cramps.  As long as the play isn't spotty, this has the makings of a line that will last more than a period.  :ph34r:
