I've had the pleasure of being a Wild fan since the begining, and I've seen this team go through a lot. The team started as any new team does as the joke of the league, they've now turned it around to being a good team. However in this year's playoffs they've taken a step back in a lot of people minds not being able to get a win against Anaheim. Tonight will start the come...
In addition to Eklund's rumor today that the Sabres are extremely interested in Brian Rolston - and why wouldn't they be based on the veteran leadership the team has lacked since Chris Drury departed - I found an interesting tidbit. What do he and Thomas Vanek have in common? Same agent. Steve Bartlett of Rochester, N.Y., just down the Thruway from Buffalo, repres...
In the summer of 2006, the Devils’ attempt to fill out their roster with 2000 Stanley Cup members Alexander Mogilny and Vladimir Malakhov did not exactly work out as planned. Malakhov barely played and was subsequently traded to San Jose the following offseason, while Mogilny was barely a shell of his former self before sustaining an injury which allowed the Devils to wi...
The woes of the New Jersey Devils; but doesn't every team have them? Trade this guy, sign that guy, buy him out, waive that guy, fire him, he should retire, blah blah blah. I swear if we the fans dictated what moves our teams made, we'd see more people come and go than on the Apprentice. Since The Devil's 2008-2009 "Red Bull" campaign ended, the same ideas and opinions ...
I initially thought this was a no brainer, but now have reason to believe otherwise. I speculated the Devil's second line would include Patrik Elias and Nicklas Bergfors at the wings and Brian Rolston giving center another shot. Jacques Lemaire stated in an interview with Tom Gulitti that he felt Rolston played best at wing, but was unclear whether or not he'll try him at ...

Sabres Down the Stretch

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
So here we are as hockey fans in late January. There are only a few short months of hockey left, and shortly we'll be able to tell if our teams are poised for a playoff run, or for golf season. It's this time of the year that teams must make a good run in order to establish prime playoff position. The Sabres, for the past couple weeks, have not looked like the playo...
source nj.com The signing of Ilya Kovalchuk isn't the last big move for the Devils this summer. Now general manager Lou Lamoriello has to find a way to fit the left winger's salary under the cap. And that may not be easy without making some significant trades. 20 1 0Share "It looks like they're going to be over the cap, so (roster moves) that's the only thing t...

What players can be traded, names being thrown around are rolston, salvador, zubrus, Langenbrunner, Zajac, i even heard marty's name but its highly ...
We're well into training camp and I'm sure I can speak for all hockey fans when I say how excited I am that hockey's back. Although we're in the stages of exhibition hockey, consider it your fix to help ease the anxiety that comes with the anticipation of waiting for October's arrival. After a summer where the New Jersey Devils were among the more relevant teams in the hoc...

2011 and the Devils

Posted Tuesday | Comments 9
First and foremost, I wish everyone a happy 2011! After ending the 2010 year with a modest 3-1 defeat over the Atlanta Thrashers, a year during which the Devils went 30-42-9, they stumbled hard into 2011, getting crushed by the Carolina Hurricanes 6-3. Going into tonight's game (1/4/2011) against the Minnesota Wild, there have been a number of intriguing events that tr...

How Do We Get Parise?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Clarkson is now a player who is in the talks of being traded. Mr. Todd Cordell's blog had talked about this. Clarkson who is recieving about $3 million seems like the perfect escape. Most people say "TRADE ROLSTON!" Well...Rolston has a NTC. White?!...NTC Rolston who I think has a hell of a slapshot hasnt been doing much. We are paying him for 25 goals......

Today Brian Rolston and I discussed his anticipated role with the New York Islanders for the upcoming season, his past experiences with the New Jersey Devils and his thoughts on the possible changes to the game that the NHL is currently considering. http://thecheckingline.com/blog/rob-mcgowan/new-york-islanders/one-one-brian-rolston -Rob McGowan Follow me on Twitt...
Brian Rolston said he would play better if used on the top two lines; in his first game on the second unit, Rolston scored his first goal of the season and played on the most succesful line against the Washington Capitals last night.

Brian Rolston, Jay Pandolfo, Marty Reasoner and Steve Staios were added to this Islanders team during the off-season to provide veteran stability throughout the line-up; Rolston was acquired for cap room and an added offensive punch over Trent Hunter, Pandolfo and Reasoner were brought in for defensive support on the bottom line, and Staios added grit and experience to a r...

Coach Upgrade

Posted Monday | Comments 8
I’ve been asked a few times as to where Buffalo would go with a new coach. Personally, I think there is only one answer to this, as for this season. Ron Rolston, as interim coach, to finish the season. One of the benefits I have is living where I can get to both Sabres and Amerks games on a regular basis. I’ve watched Rochester numerous times this season. They ...

End of an Era

Posted Wednesday | Comments 3
This was written at around 5:30 on my dinner break. (Can’t post while at work). I wrote it, e-mailed it home, and am posting now. It’s finally happened. Those of you who read my blogs regularly know that I’ve been calling for this for quite a long time. Recently, the question “Will this day ever come?” has crossed a lot of people’s minds. However, it’s fin...
It is fair to say that anyone expecting a brand new performance from the Buffalo Sabres after the firing of Lindy Ruff would be unreasonable. Remember, the same players, especially those who are underperforming (Stafford and Myers primarily), remain on the roster. Does this mean these players are done for? No. It means that Rolston had less than 12 hours to intill ...
Let’s do a little free association shall we? I’ll say a word, and then you say the first thing that comes to mind. No hesitation ok? Let’s give it a try. Awful- “Sabres” Sloppy- “Sabres” Lackadaisical - “Sabres” Passive- “Sabres” Hmm, you seem to be preoccupied with the Sabres, and you seem to have a negative view towards them at the m...
Several issues are facing the Sabres today. There’s so many disasters in Buffalo right now and there’s several voices looking at this. I figured instead of doing a “Here’s another night of disappointment” blog after the Sabres game (1-1 right now), I’d look at some of the issues facing the Sabres.

3 Good Sabres Games

Posted Monday | Comments 2
2 weeks ago, I wouldn’t have thought that the Buffalo Sabres would lose to the Panthers, Lightning, and Capitals, and then beat the Penguins, Senators, and Devils. It’s like we’re in opposite land or something. Not that I’m complaining, but it is nice to see the Sabres beat some good teams for a change. There seems to be something different about this Sabre...

Game Over

Posted Friday | Comments 4
How many times have we seen the Buffalo Sabres do what they’ve done this week? The Sabres came up with 3 great wins against the Penguins, Senators, and Devils. They pulled themselves into a great position, having gotten within 4 points of the elusive 8th place seed in the Eastern Conference. Hope, for the fans of Buffalo, had been restored. Heading into Tuesday ni...

Ron Rolston Hired

Posted Tuesday | Comments 5
After an [i]exhaustive[/i] search for a head coach, the Sabres have named their man. Ron Rolston will remain behind the bench for the Buffalo Sabres in the upcoming years. However, some individuals seem to be up in arms about this. I don’t know what all the fuss is about. Let’s look at this team that he had to coach. They weren’t exactly a team of all-stars. ...

Tyler Myers- What Happened?

Posted Thursday | Comments 8
Tyler Myers. I already know that just by saying his name, a lot of people’s attention just caught this blog. He’s been with the Sabres his entire NHL career, and after having a dazzling rookie career, he seems to be struggling. Prompting the question... What happened to Tyler Myers?? First off, his point totals have significantly decreased since his rooki...
There’s one name that has been surrounded with controversy this past season with the Buffalo Sabres. That man, is Mikhail Grigorenko. The number one draft pick for the Sabres had very high expectations placed upon him. The way [i]some[/i] people wrote about him, I have expected him to show up in a cape, looking like a super hero. He could do no wrong according to some. ...

Middle Ground

Posted Saturday | Comments 1
It’s been awhile since I’ve written. Part of the struggle right now, for just about all Sabres fans, is things don’t look too good for the Sabres at this point in time. It’s not a good position that they are setting themselves in for the upcoming season. Buffalo is in the same position they find themselves in just about every year- stuck in the painful middle p...
The heat will be turned on high for every Sabre this season. Looking through the roster in the midst of the Sabres’ overhaul reveals a melting pot of players from different stages in their careers. Every player has a lofty set of individual challenges to face this season, and while the same can be said about all players at the beginning of a new NHL season, the effects a...

Sabres Reality Check

Posted Thursday | Comments 6
By the time that I finish writing this blog, Buffalo will have lost their 5th game in a row. It is 4-1 Columbus at this time, 5 minutes into the 2nd period. Before reading this, I offer a disclaimer; [b]I am not going to sugar coat this.[/b] No matter how much I hate having to write this, I’m keeping this grounded in reality. I have heard a lot of dissent over...
As many of you already are doing, I’m sitting here watching tonight’s Sabres vs Islanders game. We all know the record that’s on the line tonight. It’s not one that any Buffalo Sabres fan wants to see. I don’t need to do an analysis of any of the first 7 games. We all know that things aren’t good in “Hockey Heaven” right now. The ruler, Terry Pegula, no...

Sabres Excuse Syndrome

Posted Monday | Comments 4
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...

Ron Rolston- Sabres Scapegoat

Posted Wednesday | Comments 7
There’s a lot of rumblings right now about Ron Rolston, and how he needs to be fired, even after last night’s surprise victory in San Jose. At this point in time, I really can’t jump on this bandwagon, nor do I plan on it. Rolston is starting to look more and more like a scapegoat to take the blame. Why, you ask? I’ll get to that. I’ve got several reasons...
