Lack of Respect

Posted Monday | Comments 0
After their performance against Florida last week, I thought about writing an angry article, ripping the team and explaining how they are going nowhere. But then I reconsidered the fact that they came back from three goals down. That was the biggest thing I took out of that game. It wasn’t the fact that there was no call on the Myers trip or that Buffalo couldn’t ma...

Pegula's Impact

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
Ding Dong, the witch is dead! The Sabres have been sold and all will be right with the world! This is the current sentiment in the Sabres fan base. Change is coming, this is undeniably true. But when, who and how much has yet to be determined. Many believe new owner Terry Pegula to be a mythical owner from heaven sent to overspend and create a new Stanley Cup dynasty ...
Well, Terry Pegula did it. The Buffalo Sabres newest owner acquired the team from Tom Golisano and will take over on February 22nd, less than one week away from the NHL trade deadline. This should be an interesting situation. Pegula may try to make a splash and please the fan base. He may be content to play Darcy-puck and sit still at the deadline. Only time will tell...
“Terry-Terry-Terry!” was the chant being uttered by the sold-out crowd at HSBC Arena prior to the contest. The same man that Sabres fans were cheering for, Terry Pegula, then stepped out onto the ice with his two sons, and the crowd hollered even louder. An appearance by the French Connection- Gilbert Perreault, Rene Robert and Rick Martin- also thrilled the Sabres ...
The Sabres acquired for Blues forward Brad Boyes late Sunday evening for a 2nd round pick in next year's draft. The move has garnered quite a bit of attention in both markets involved. It's obvious the Sabres were in need of a top 6 forward who can score, skate hard, and check harder. Boyes can backcheck and forecheck with the best of them. He skates with intensity that I ...
With the addition of Brad Boyes in the roster the Sabres appear to have a very good chance to make the playoffs. Buffalo are just two points out of the eighth spot with two games in hand. The Carolina Hurricanes are the team that the Sabres are chasing and were pretty quiet at the deadline. The Hurricanes made one move to acquire a solid defenseman in Bryan Allen, but g...

The Power of Pegula

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Nine games into the Terry Pegula era and the Buffalo Sabresboast a 6-1-2 record under new ownership. Coincidence? I think not. Ever since Pegula officially took over the ownership of the Sabres, they have been a different team. If you remember correctly, one of Pegula’s first quotes as the owner was, “Winning is not a goal. It is a belief.” The Buffalo Sabres h...

Sabres' Future Looks Bright

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
The Sabres’ season was not all for not, even though they The future looks bright for the Sabres' young squad. did not reach their final prize of winning Lord Stanley, there were many positives throughout the season. The Sabres are expected to have one of their busiest summers in years. With the recent re-signing of Lindy Ruff to a multi-year extension,we know that t...
For many Sabres fans, a sense of disappointment may still linger after the Sabres dreadful Game 7 exit to the Philadelphia Flyers in the first round of the playoffs. And rightly so. It was as if the Sabres had left their starting lineup back in Buffalo and instead dressed a band of junior-league misfits to take their place. Either way, it was apparent the team had...
As the NHL playoffs continue without Buffalo, the Sabres and their fans are already looking forward to next season. Watching the San Jose vs. Detroit series, I realized that there is no way the Sabres could compete in a game, or series, of that intensity, which may be a key factor in why they lost to the Flyers in Game 7 and have won only one in the history of the franchis...
Mr. Pegula should take note on the recent news that True North will NOT retain Rick Dudley as their GM. I truely believe Duds would be a great asset to the Sabres Organization. He has ties to the community as a former player & coach. He also still resides in the area. But the ties to the oraganization is not the main reason to hire him. Here are just a few reasons he sh...
With the handcuffs off Darcy Regier is proving to be resourceful and more aggressive than myself and most Sabres fans have ever given him credit for. Signing Ehrhoff was a great move to add a durable blueline presence who can command the Sabres PP until Myers or Gragnani is ready and chip in 30-35 assists for the next decade. People are complaining about the term of the ...
Before I begin I would like to preface this post by saying a sincere to thank you to the Pegula Family, as well as the entire sabres organization for arguably one of the most exciting off seasons in team history. The future of this franchise is brighter than it has ever been. With that being said. It seems for now that the Buffalo Sabres are re-enacting an old slogan...

Damaged Goods

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
Your're reminded of it every time you go to a Sabres home game. They play it loud and clear over the P.A. system. "From this day foward, the Buffalo Sabres reason for existence is to win the Stanley Cup". Minutes later the puck drops and the action begins. Not long after that it becomes obvious that you've been duped into thinking this home game would be any differen...

What Should Buffalo Do?

Posted Monday | Comments 0
I’ve written about this debacle in Buffalo for many weeks now. The Sabres are spiraling out of control, and nothing seems to be happening to fix the situation. I loved Jerry Sullivan’s article in the Buffalo News from today, tearing into Terry Pegula and the Sabres. He points out how Buffalo is 5 points out of 8th place, but also 5 points out of last place... Le...

Hockey Purgatory?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
February 3, 2011: “Starting today,” Pegula said, “there will be no financial mandates on the Buffalo Sabres hockey department,” in their effort to fulfill his dream of winning multiple Stanley Cups. “There is no salary cap in the National Hockey League on scouting budgets and player development budgets.” “A clarion call should go out to the league and t...

What Are the Options?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
The Buffalo Sabres are spiraling down into a pit of despair. They can’t score goals and they can’t stop goals. The defense gives the puck away constantly, like that’s what they’re paid to do. The goaltender has little to no confidence in himself and the players in front of him. The coach has run out of answers for the terrible play that we fans watch every single g...

Dire Straits

As I sit here in my Taro Tsujimoto jersey (hats off to those of you who get the reference), my thoughts have been stuck on the Sabres and when they will pull themselves out of this slump they are in and get back into playoff contention. I’ve been looking at the conference standings all morning, and slowly another question has been trickling into my mind... [b]CAN[/b] ...
As I watched the game last night, I was extremely worried towards the end. For a moment, it looked like Buffalo was going to be able to hang on to the victory. The Isles should have been an easy 2 points, especially since the Isles got creamed against the Senators the night before. However, Buffalo just got out of First Niagara Center with 2 points. Buffalo played a me...

Creating Hockey Heaven

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
There’s been a lot of talk lately as the Sabres (and fans) assess their organization. Again, the idea of creating a so called “Hockey Heaven” in Buffalo is pretty vague. Management thinks that it is making it a great place to play hockey. The idea of selling Buffalo of as a great place to raise a family is fantastic too. The new locker rooms and upgrades to the a...
I’m getting to the point where I’m having a difficult time starting these blogs. Yes, the season is still young. Yes, a lot can still happen over the next 42 games. But there’s one problem with all of this. We have all watched this style of play from the Buffalo Sabres before. I saw Buffalo do this last year, and the year before that. There’s been elements ...

Fan vs Owner

Posted Monday | Comments 0
We all remember Terry Pegula’s emotional speech after he took over the Buffalo Sabres on February 22, 2011. We all know that he started his speech with “Who am I? I am a Sabre fan and have been since 1975.” He continued to go on with this speech by thanking Tom Golisano for “Saving my hockey team.” Then, he went on to turn to the great Gil Perreault and told him ...
First and foremost, my thoughts and prayers to the families impacted by today’s tragic events in Boston. In moments of tragedy, hopefully people can find inspiration in the actions of those who didn’t run away from disaster, but ran towards it in an effort to help. [b]Those individuals truly are heroes. [/b] My family and I attended the Sabres vs Flyers game on Sa...
I think my title speaks for itself. I was convinced that today was the day that Darcy’s reign of terror in Buffalo came to an end. I was wrong. However, I didn’t think that things would take the turn that it did during the press conference at First Niagara Center. There’s one direction that the Sabres are headed in right now. Straight down. The fans don’t even ...
As we approach the start of free agency and the draft, a lot of people are up in the air as to what is going to happen with the Buffalo Sabres. Despite how some of my blogs come off, I’m a huge fan of the Sabres. I always have been, and I always will be. Regardless of what this team does, I’m still rooting for them. However, there has to be a certain disconnect wit...

The Sabres Fan's Conundrum

Posted Saturday | Comments 1
Another night of Sufferin’ with the Sabres is underway at First Niagara Center. We all knew that this season wasn’t going to be pretty, but we didn’t think that it was going to be this bad. I’m editing a quote from the movie [i]“Moneyball”[/i] to sum up the Sabres season at this point; “There are good teams, and there are bad teams. Then there’s 50 feet ...

Sabres Excuse Syndrome

Posted Monday | Comments 0
While I was watching the Sabres game Saturday night, I was on Twitter live chatting like normal. As the team’s play, I guess the right terminology would be “improved” as the game reached its late stages, several reporters were mentioning the excuses that would be used for this game to justify the eventual loss. I started having flashbacks at this point. 2 yea...

Paging Mr. Pegula...

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Paging Mr. Pegula, where are you? Your team is a wreck right now, your fans are getting relentless, and you are 1-9-1 in the first eleven games. The last time we had no clue where our owner was with this team was the last owner, who you bought the team from! First thing is first, eleven games in and firing the general manager would not be the end of the world....

Pegula should not be blamed

Posted Monday | Comments 0
“Winning is not a goal, it is a belief.” Does that saying ring a bell? Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula said that in his press conference after he bought the franchise from former owner Tom Golisano. At the time Pegula bought the team, he had faith in his general manager Darcy Regier and his head coach Lindy Ruff. They signed some free agents and made some trade...

Darcy was right!

Posted Monday | Comments 0
[b]"[i]It may require some suffering."[/i][/b]--Darcy Regier, April 2013. Truer words were never spoken than those uttered by our defamed, former General Manager last spring. Still it was a bitter pill to swallow for the beleaguered fans in our crusty post-industrial city, especially coming from the captain of the ship who, while not exactly crashing the franchise into...

Beautiful Disaster?

Beautiful Disaster?: The Sabres re-organization plan Its been five games into the Sabres 2014-2015 campaign and Sabres fans and people around the league are talking. Many people are saying "I told you so". Others are surprised at how similar the Sabres resemble last years historically bad squad. For me this begs the question, is Tim Murray is in control of this rebui...
