    Very, and their next 3 games are all tough.

    I dont expect to stay, but at the same time, every game is big right now, and that's fun. It's fun and nice to care again.

    Also, looks like the Sabres are starting to lean on ullmark as the starter more. Hes settling in well.

    These last 2 wins vs. Blues and Preds should build confidence. Keep it up !

    Re: 19-20 game day thread

    I watched the condensed game because it was late and I had to get up early today but nicely done against the Sabres. In the last 5 games, they're 3-1-1 for 7 of a possible 10 points, and that included a 3 game West Coast trip and a game against the defending Stanley Cup champs.

    It's so hard to get a read on this team. I could see them playing solidly for the rest of the season and making the playoffs in a weak division. I could also see them going into another month-long skid and digging themselves into an insurmountable hole. I definitely see improvement- I just don't know if I can trust them to be consistent.

    Olafsson was basically a walk on for Rochester Americans, his contract was up on the Swedish team that he was playing for & Rochester GM Randy Sexton saw him play in Sweden and signed him to a contract to play for the Rochester Americans.

    No.... he was a 7th round pick and buffalo signed him to an ELC after his Frolunda contract was up. Sexton didnt discover him and he wasnt a "walk on"

    Looks like a loss, but playing in New York, this well? This isnt the Sabres of the past. This team is actually pretty good

    What's happened to Skinner lately? We need a lot more out of him.

    I was gonna ask if he’s been scratched...zero points and more glaring... zero shots in 2 straight games

    He usually plays with Mittelstadt and Rodrigues, Not much he can do.

    He's also not hungry for a contract like he was last season.

    So basically playing with Jack got Skinner a huge contract and then they Jack away and stick Skinner with two disappointments. Shouldn't of paid him if they can't get him a real center.

    That's what happened.

    My guess they split Skinner and Jack up trying to get 2 lines going.

    But Mittelstadt is struggling to do his part.

    The Sabres need a solid 2C and that might help Skinner out and take some pressure off him.

    Problem is, A 2C is not easy to acquire without giving up premium futures.

    Glad they got a point but the O still needs work.

    The officiating was terrible. I don’t really object to any of the penalties on the Sabres but there were 4 or 5 obvious non-calls that should have gone against NYI
