As per no real source Buffalo Sabres franchise player, Jack Eichel will be sidelined 6-8 weeks with a left ankle injury. Ouch!
Sabres fans with the loss of Eichel and the impending trade of Evander Kane expect the Sabre submarine to come to rest at the bottom of the NHL sea.
Here’s a list of sailors departing for ports beyond leaving holes in the line up next season that wont be easily replaced by draft nor call up.
This is one player I wish the Sabres would sign. He is an all around player that’s not easily replaced.
Another player I wish we could keep and he would definitely be on the cheap.
Inconsistencies and a bad defense equall lots of losses. Despite that being the truth imagine Lehner in St. Louis, Boston, Dallas, Washington, Winnipeg, think about his save percentage and wins going up and turning into one of the better goalies in the league. There goes another one we had!
Linus Ullmark will fight for position next year but Lehner will hold the position providing he’s still in the 716.
I don’t see why not considering he has another year and is an RFA.
What a. Return to Buffalo! Pommel lit the lamp bring back visions of days gone by. And that’s what they are for #29 days, gone by. Can Botril get a 4th rd pick?
His time is up, it’s time to ramble on. Can we get a 3rd for him or can Bots pull a Gaustad.
This rebuild is at a turtles pace and it falls on owner Terry Pegula. Pegulas picks for leadership of the S.S. Sabres have been horrible at best. Hire hockey men who know the game and stop paying stop gap coaches. Put some consistency into the culture.
The loss of Eichel will show you what we really got in Buffalo, a team of mainly 3 & forth liners.
