    I hate to call you out buddy (not really). And I know you're trying to make a little joke here, but you couldn't be more wrong. The Sabres 1st line won the game against the Canadiens on Saturday (Skinner's 4 goals), but it was the 2nd line that won the game vs the Islanders. Facts matter. Krebs-Cozens-Oloffson had 7 points in that game. Read all about it:

    Sabres use new line to beat Islanders
    Dylan Cozens' line tallied seven points in the win


    Buffalo, N.Y. (WGR 550) – It was Tage Thompson’s line collecting nine points in a 5-3 win in Montreal over the Canadiens on Sunday.

    Tuesday night saw Dylan Cozens and his group scoring two goals and registering five assists for seven points, leading the Sabres to their second-consecutive win, 6-3, over the New York Islanders.

    Ha not true. You guys aren't even watching the games. Try it. There's one tonight.

    Krebs and Cozens are going to be two huge pieces going forward. Hope they add elite talent in the draft

    The talent gained from draft is generally 3-4 years away from NHL ice.

    No to gold and crypto. Wait for a dip on Apple. And don’t pay for phones unless you are mental like the above poster.

    Generally. Unless you draft high

    Dylan Cozens is in his second year in the NHL, and at age 21, has never played a game in the minors. There have been times he’s struggled since turning pro, but Adams says in this case, it was more beneficial to keep him in the National Hockey League.

    “You can have a plan or a philosophy overall, but no two cases are ever the same.. Even JJ Peterka and Jack Quinn are different in where they’re at," Adams said on WGR.

    “Sometimes it’s a physical maturity, sometimes it’s mental in how they’re thinking the game. But what I’ll say about Dylan is that he possessed qualities even at a young age that you weren’t worried that he was going to lose his confidence. It’s the speed, and even if he wasn’t scoring, to make a difference; for me, I was watching very closely if he looked like a player that lost confidence or wasn’t himself. I never saw that, and I also felt that 'Donny' [Granato] and the coaching staff were really dialed into, 'How do we make this player learn and grow and get better?' So there is development that can happen in the National Hockey League too.”

    Golden Knights lose Eichel's second game back. Eichel gets one assist.

    Yeah, maybe they can grab somebody like Eichel or Dahlin

    Fine Cozens played 41 games his first partial season but his 4 goals wasn’t anything of note. This season almost 3 times the production is nice. He’s not elite Yet.

    I just thought I'd give you the opportunity to correct your proclamation as lots of players start their first year in the NHL these days. As Kevyn Adams states, a lot goes into the decision making (see above quote). But there is less a waiting period as in the past, as the NHL has gotten noticeably younger across the board.

    He probably won't ever be elite. He's gonna be a second line work horse that pots 55 points a year with infectious leadership and work ethic

    Be careful. He may. He's 21 years old. 6' 3" and listed at 189 lbs. He's still growing into his frame. He went from 4 goals (last year, his first) in 41 games to 11 goals this year over the same amount of time. He'll end up with 15 to 20 goals this season, his first full one. That's a really good start to a career. How long did it take Mittelstadt to "blossom?" 3 ro 4 seasons.
