We're now outshot. Normality has returned.

71 could be our Paul Byron


Paul Byron was our Paul Byron. :P

That game was fun enough. My bourbon was tasty enough and it was a satisfying night.

WBC time. Netherlands vs Puerto Rico, here we go!

Claude Verrett was our Paul Byron.  71 is (will be) better than either.

Hey, I hope you're right. Although I might put a small wager on Rodrigues ever potting 20 goals in a season.

So what happens if the sabres finish the season with 11 straight wins?

 

They would have a 18.4% chance of making the playoffs.

Our 3 stars:

 

1. Lehner

2. Eichel

3. Rodrigues

Good point with the 20 goals, but scoring is different now than when Claude played.

I'm pretty sure the Detroit goalie played the puck on the previous icing call against the Sabres.

This absolutely happened, I was screaming
Also, what I'm reading with regards to tiers in this draft, we don't have to sweat moving a couple spots one way or another.

Win as many as you can. The draft isn't helping the roster next year.
And we will get a player that helps perhaps the following.

Glad to see Dan showing emotion during that icing miss after they called the icing that was played by Detroit's goalie

I really like the way Rodrigues plays, he seems to anticipate the play better than most on the ice.

 

He's definitely a pest to the opposition, its like he's always throwing a wrench into the works.

 

At one point he looked like he was directing traffic, pointing out something as he was back checking.

He has made our 2nd PP a lot smoother to.

He's got the look of one of those useful utility tenth forwards that really fill a role for good teams, doesn't he?

Hope he keeps developing. Like I said elsewhere, we need a few surprises.

Dominic Moore with more offensive talent?

That's it exactly. It looks like he sees the play develop and then jumps in at the right moment. Specialist

 

The other thing I noticed, he always looks to drive to the middle of the ice in O-zone whenever possible.

 

I like it, "we need a few surprises."

You might be right; however, at times he was a monster defensively in today's game.

 

They may need each other. I don't know if Sam got a stinger but, he sat most of the 3rd. It's either that or Dan is doing him like he did Jack when he sat him after a bad play.

I believe it, he's effective even when he doesn't score. I just really want him to hit 30G.

Now that would be nice. I thought I saw a stat where he hit 30G's earlier in his career, or it was close to it.

 

I'm just glad they haven't thrown in the towel, and it would be really nice to see the Sabres play the spoiler.

 

If nothing else just keep going, and let's hope for the best next season.

His Defensive Play has picked up dramatically as well

He didn't move his feet the entire WC. As soon as he came back, he really, really started moving his feet. I think him being shown up in that tournament really had an affect on him

 

Someone should let the Sabres beat writer for the Buffalo News know that. He was just on Twitter yesterday saying "every scout and GM" has told him Matthews is better.

It pisses me off that those jack wagons get paid good money to do that and here we are with better analysis doing it for free :lol:

 

NBC broadcast now heaping praise on Eichel, even when he's on the bench being vocal.

Mike Harrington is somewhere trying to score an interview with a Leafs scout to let us know why Jack sucks.

He's the worst. Such a jabroni

 

Sabres have gone from outshooting Detroit 18-6 to being out shoot 28-26.

 

Fire Dan!

Shhhhhh, it's all the fragile players faults

 

"Dan Bylsma screaming How is that not a hook?"

Cut to shot of Bylsma on the bench, arms crossed, looking like a cuckold husband.

Amazing :lol:

Eh.  The more I watch Kane, the more worried I am that he's never going to figure out how to use his line mates.  He scores when he creates his own opportunities or gets set up but it seems like he rarely creates a scoring chance for someone else.

I remember Austin making one turnover which was covered up by a diligent ROR.  He seems to want to move the puck super quickly, maybe too much so.  Other than that, didn't look too out of place.


Oh, he had a team high 3 shots on goal too.  (Although lots of people had 3.)

I still can't figure out why the Sabres insist in playing tired worn-out D-men over young guys...I hate Toronto bu give them credit cause they are playing meaningful games right now and doing it with a bunch of young guys on d hat are not very good but who knows, maybe they'll get better....at least one can find excuses for them, unlike we can for aging vets like Gorges, Franson and Kulikov (and Bogo for that matter). Either way, nice to see a win...ANY WIN is good
