    Wasted? Dudes been good since his rookie year. Hes grown substantially as a player since then. It's worth another look if it wont kill the Sabres playoff chances just to see what we have

    It's hard to say without actually seeing the game but I don't know if now is a good time to draw any conclusions. The Amerks are loaded right now cuz the Sabres sent Asplund, Pilut and a couple more down due to the extended break. None of those guys played in the game I saw- they were all scratches because of the timing.

    Totally get what you're saying. I didnt watch either, so when it comes to mittelstadt in Rochester, I have to trust what I read.

    9 points in 15 games certainly isnt exciting though. Its.... ok. At best. Heres hoping though, he continues to heat up.

    That was a really dumb penalty by Skinner, Cost his team a goal.

    Well good to know we still suck after all that time off.

    Admittedly I haven't been watching the Sabres as much lately. I've been watching the condensed games and following the stats but I haven't watched as many from start to finish as I usually do.

    Seeing that Amerks game live reminded me how much I love watching this sport. Watching the Sabres last night reminded me why I haven't been watching as much. This team is just exhausting. The div is weak this year and if they can just be slightly better than mediocre they could at least break the drought and get the kids some playoff experience, but so far even that low bar has been too much to ask.

    Welp, hold on to your picks and start planning for next year unless a trade falls into your lap

    It's just gotten so old. Mismanagement and poor play year after year.

    I'm not as high on the Bills as many here are, but at least they back doored into the playoffs with some help in 2017 and took advantage of a weak schedule to make it in 2019. At least part of their game- the D- is one of the better units in the NFL.

    The Sabres are failing to take advantage of a weak div and don't really excel in any aspect of the game. Eichel has become a true superstar and I expect Dahlin to get there soon but the rest of this team is so.... meh.

    I'm seriously losing faith that Pegula will ever get it right. It's his 9th season and 3rd rebuild with no results to show for it.

    Pegula is a joke. Has been for a while.

    On the plus side, I'm glad I bought I knock off 50th Jersey. He doesnt deserve my money right now

    Re: 19-20 game day thread

    I was there for that waste of time last night vs. Ottawa.

    1. They didn't have a shot on goal for the first half hour
    2. Spent so much time just floating. No zip.
    3. Outside of 4-5 guys, this team needs such a makeover.
    4. Good goalie hurt.
    5. Lost to team who had won 1 of last 11. Dead last in Power Play but go 3 for 4 against Sabres.

    Needs a new GM and maybe coach.

    No playoff spot this year. Will continue to sink.


    Just an Ugly game.

    At what point is it the players? Seems like we are 2 GMs and 3 HCs into this thing and they are still the problem?

    I'm a bit confused here. Last time I checked, the GM picks the players, so if the players aren't good enough, it's the GM's fault.

    Could also be the coach's fault if he's telling the players to do the wrong things. But I do agree that lacking talent can hurt a coach.

    Re: 19-20 game day thread

    It probably has something to do with lack of scoring depth, lack of big moves, and lack of quality goaltending

    So we can't score or keep people from scoring. Good thing neither of those are important in hockey....
