A break from Sabres hockey will help everybody...

All-knowing Swamp.

I'm normally right there believing in conspiracies, but I don't think this is one of them. It's not really a conspiracy, but I don't think that they go out of their way to get certain guys in certain spots. They might try to make sure that the regional guys are working games that are big and on national TV so they never run into a traveling mess. But that wouldn't really go against my theory that they legitimately just assign them randomly.

It's not conspiracy and I'm not even complaining. They obviously rank the reffing crews and if you were in charge of officiating would you waist your best crew on this game? I wouldn't. Until we get better and play games that mean something, we are not going to get the better crews and that is just a fact.

And I'm also guessing that you forgot about that whole email thing where it came out that they were, in fact, sending certain crews to certain games possibly effecting the outcome?

Not busting on Enroth here....but what is the NHL record for losses in a row for an NHL goalie?

Jhonas has to be close at 13.

Hard luck.

They're still professionals. Both the "low-ranking" officials and the low-ranking NHL teams.

And no, I don't remember that.

I'd be more into the tank if there were a true game changer there. Reinhard and Ekblad will be good players, but not good enough to wish for losing. Now if there were a Gretzky out there, I'd be the driver of the tank. This year let's build a winning attitude. Ted deserves much.

He is Lalime version 2.0.

I think teams know to shoot high stick side against Jhonas at this point.

Just wait until next year. There is a "Gretzky" out there. I say that because you never technically know, and there is no Gretzky anywhere ever. He's more of a Mario Lemieux.

If Edmonton and Buffalo get 0 points before the break and the Ducks get three then both teams will be eliminated from President Trophy contention. Heart breaker.

Well at least they lost! Keep that tank rolling for another season and I will be a happy man if they can land Reinhart or Bennett with McDavid. That would make all this suffering worth while.

Don't worry, Liger. Much like the Sabres, you're just a couple dozen more complete failures away from great success at the draft.

What?

Sabres really got cheated on that waived off goal - but.... they really shouldn't have needed it.... this was the Oilers... at home.

Hodgson's play seemed poor to me tonight, as did Erroroff's.

Darcy is the devil. I hate him. Of course if the Islanders do defer then miss the playoffs next year and win the lottery and we get McDavid and Eichel... I will still f####### hate him because he had no way of making that happen the little weasel.

With Leino off the ice, who is the Lt. Tank Commander? I'd nominate Erroroff. He was -2 for the night, and that one penalty was unbelievably stupid - playing the puck while he was still on the bench - lmao!!!!!

And amazingly, neither Weber nor Yakupov made any gains on each other in their race for the plus/minus cellar. Both were big zeroes for the night.

Weber came out motivated to lower his +/- even further. He started with an immediate minus play on the first goal. But, he got lucky with the assist on Stafford's SHG, which put him back at zero for the game.

Or maybe the credits will roll right after we see the lottery balls rolling... Leaving us to wonder if they ever actually stop or just continue rolling forever.

Tankception.

The refs in my beer league called as many penalties as the refs in this terrible game. What's the deal tonight?

I missed the game but caught the lowlights. Just an observation but Enroth sukced so bad on the 3 he let in. Just so friggin bad. This team could not win with him manning the net if their lives depended on it. This team is bad. Real bad. But their backup goalie is vexed. Tonight he was just awful. Sorry Jonus but your game needs work.

Breath. Breath. O.k , I'll be fine.
