Where were they married?

 

That coast line in the photo could very well be NS.

. Agree and Ghule has some wheels... Man if Sabres could draft Dhalin... that would be a helluv a combo or 1-2 punch. Dahlin.. Middlestadt.. Ulmark and CJ smith up next year could make a world of difference. Erod was aweful and Girgenson couldnt spell goal if you spotted him the g and the L. Jack needs a sniper to pass to...

Right. Besides, some of Jack's empty netters are more impressive than a lot of standard NHL goals. He picks corners from his own blue line. They are daggers.

 

 

His second empty netter, at the end of his rookie season (game 80 maybe?) in NJ, was among the more difficult goals he's scored.

Jack is definitely the interview jokester on the team. He threw this at Guhle:

Turning point for franchise?

Jack has elevated the carcass of Kyle Okposo and made him an effective player again. Funny how the two fastest skaters (Eichel and Guhle) were the best looking players last night... :flirt:


I think KO has a lot of gas in the tank, and that the neurological thing last year took a lot out of him.  He's just now becoming the player he's capable of being.

 

A lot of people grade players strictly on the basis of goals and assists.  I think KO's points will come around, but he has a great physicality about him that even if he's not scoring, is affecting the game play and tipping the ice the Sabres way.  I would say the same thing about Girgs, to a lesser extent.

I agree about the gas in the tank and the other things he brings.
He also has has 13 points in his past 16 games.

Kyle is good. The question is how long will he remain good.

I bought a suit in China last month that looks similar, maybe rock it out to the SS meet up


K, if you're wearing blue, then I'll wear plaid.

Okposo has always been streaky. He gets hot, then cold and repeats. The ICU scare definitely put in on an extended cold streak but he's definitely looking good these past few games. I'd expect to see him rack up a few points, cool down again, and then finish the season hot.

Other than a great first, we didn’t play much different than most games this past month.
Having some exciting new players rekindles the feeble embers of optimism and winning changes our perspective on everything.
Watching Guhle skate is exciting and my God is Linus easy to root for.
Reminded me of when Ennis and Foligno first came up.
Hope the story ends better than that.


For me, so much of it is just Eichel. Having that real superstar.

I told myself during the tank they even if the team results weren't there, I would take joy in watching an extremely gifted Sabre, one we aren't privy to often. Someone special.

Lately, and increasingly, Eichel is making it easy to stick to that idea.

Lots of truth there. Sometimes patience is rewarded.

Thank God. I thought it was a birthmark or something.
