    Colorado is an excellent team. MacKinnon is special. Eichel looks ordinary next to him. Jokiharju, Montour, Miller, McCabe and Ristolainen played hard and well t/o. Dahlin just sucks so bad. He was the worst play on the ice. Hutton was a 2-year veteran patch. His 2 years is up. They either need to mak Ullmark & Johansson the goalies moving forward or go get a real veteran. They are out there. There is no excuse for this team to be toleratin this level of goal-tending. (And I like Hutton, but he's clearly not the answer.)

    I dunno what you got against dahlin as a whole. His game has really rebounded since his injury earlier in the year, outside a few poor games. Which is to be expected by a 19 year old. All the young d-man have em. But you only seem to pick up on dahlin when he has one

    Which goalies are out there? I can see maybe Lehner again or Markstrom if Van doesn't sign him. Maybe which ever the Pens don't keep out of Murray or Jarry. There aren't too many 1's just floating around out there.

    You'd have to have watched the game last night. I've got nothing against him. I just pointed out how he played last night. No one will argue with my take on that. I've seen him have good, or better games. They needed him to be better last night. Everyone else (may outside of Hutton, who struggle at some points) was.

    I'm not the one who's biased towards him, you and coastal are. He's streaky at best. An unbiased eye tells the truth. I think floflo sees what I see.

    And you keep tring to give him credit for his offense. That is the first sign of someone who is clueless. He's a defenseman. If has some o, that's an added plus, but not something you measure him by. You measure his defensive metrics. But you try to value him over and over based on his offense. You sholdn't care about that.

    Nah. This Dahlin conversation that keeps surfacing is highly similar to your conversations about Singletary. It's definitely a bit over the top.

    In fairness, I didnt watch the game. I was at the gym so I had to listen to it

    But theres a reason the best defensemen in the game put up great offensive numbers. I mean arguably the greatest defensemen in history were known for the offense. (Orr, Lidstrom, Coffey)

    The stellar defense will come once he learns the nuances of the north american game

    The Sabres didn't play badly at all against Colorado. They just sucked on the penalty kills. No playoffs this year and time to make decisions on who to keep for next year. Pipeline of Rochester, college, juniors and Europe on players they have drafted and own the rights to. A couple FA's to boot, if they will sign here.

    Keeping it real.

    The real question is do the Pegs give Botts another year...

    Lehner will make his Vegas debut in goal tonight versus the Sabres.

    Well, the thrill of being in the fringe of the playoff hunt sure lasted long.

    Re: 19-20 game day thread

    The improvement on the team has nothing to do with him.

    He lucked out with Dahlin after a losing season, Olofsson was GMTM, Eichel is growing into his body, Samson is growing into his body, Risto was already here.

    He got Skins on a steal and then overpaid him, the Joker trade was legit, the ROR trade may be the worst trade in league history. Housley was a crap hire... Kruger looks solid.

    He’s got Rochester straightened out.

    All in all... meh...

    I fear that you are correct. Sadly, hockey isn’t football or basketball. Guys outside of the top 3-5 picks usually take several years before they can really contribute. Even if the Sabres have the best draft in the history of the NHL this year, it’ll be 2-3 years before we see the results on the ice.

    Its funny. Under Darcy, he couldn't draft in the first round, but routinely hit in later rounds.
