Nolan has said Omark has alot of skill but it means nothing without effort three times in recent memory. Is the kid dense and not receiving the message and if so why don't they just cut him and let someone else play instead of rolling him out there every third game?

When Sabres play Oilers, it won’t be clash of titans.


And the academy would like to honor the Buffalo News for the most tepid use of classical mythology.

So Marcus is a healthy scratch, Flynn is on third line and Omark is on top.

Why not. I really think they should give Miller a normal stick and see how he does on the top line. Everyone else has had a stint there.

I just assume we're finishing ahead of the Oilers so I can't get to must lose for this one. Too bad we can't bring Rolston back for tonight.

I agree we need to lose tonight. We need some separation between us and Edmonton. No reason why we have to win these meaningless games the rest of the season! You want to get better we have to keep losing the rest of this season and carry it into next season.

Seems like a clear cut Sabres victory to me. Edmonton is a bad road team. Buffalo is a bad team. Something has to give. The give goes to the Sabres.

Buffalo is pretty much locked in at the 1st or 2nd worst record in the NHL. If Edmonton gets the top pick, there is no way they don't take the Dman with their pick. In the end, Sabres will get their choice of any of the Centers no matter what.

Unless we finish 2nd to last and the 3rd-14th place team wins the lottery... then we get the 2nd best forward.
