    We should know damn well that being #1 on Oct 16 is meaningless.

    It's not entirely meaningless for a starving fanbase. Take the wins when we can, because it wont last. Not yet, amyways

    eh, I don't know. I think it just makes it worse. Sometimes you just have a bad team. I think that's more palatable than last year where we had a team with some talent that just completely **** the bed.

    Re: Sabres are #1

    This time it feels and looks a little different. Last year, it was one line that was on fire and we had almost nothing from any of the others. This time, it's the power play but also, other lines are starting to produce at even strength. Let's hope that trend continues.

    I agree that there are a lot of things that are better about this team, notably getting contributions from more than just the big 3 and players seeming to be on the same page more often than not. It's just that the Bills and Sabres have started strong only to implode so many times that i can't help but take a "I'll believe it when I see it" approach.

    Oh you can believe it this time. Krueger will keep them playing like this or they'll be hurled shrieking into the deepest depths of the unholy abyss I tell you. They know it too. Krueger tips his head down, grins that grin, and the screams of the damned echo in my head.

    Don't get me wrong though, I'm good with it if it works.

    Still tied (3-way) after the Oilers OT loss, #1.

    I don't really think that Krueger resembles a Death Nazi.

    But I've been wrong before, Mace.

    We started off so / so last year, so if we can extrapolate the season from here we’d be the greatest regular season team ever by a lot. Also, we are still #1 (Colorado lost to the Blues).

    Oilers down 3-0 away, so I’ll take the obvious bet & say Sabres stand alone in first place of the entire NHL to this point. This is very high percentage hockey, call it .850.
