    2022-2023 Sabres Thread

    Pre-season starting in a couple days.

    The later part of last season offered hope. From March 2nd to the end of the season they recorded 35 points, 12th in the NHL.

    Goalie play will determine a ton. Cromrie arrives. Anderson and maybe UPL later, depending on health.

    Will Quinn, Peterka and maybe a couple others earn a roster spot ? How will Rochester be stocked ?

    Still think they're a year away from a postseason spot but let's see.

    Go Sabres !

    Hoping they make it this year, but it's a long shot and highly unlikely they get out of the first round if they do. Still, it would be nice to get some playoff experience for the young guys and, if not, hopefully they can at least make the season interesting by being in the hunt until close to the end.

    Power rankings out, and the sabres are in the bottom five.

    Where they should be.

    The Sabres take the preseason opener...in OOOOOOOOVERTIME! They defeat Washington 4-3.

    Dylan Cozens notched a goal and an assist for Buffalo. Tyson Kozak also scored for Buffalo(to give them a 2-1 lead midway through the 2nd), while Jack Quinn tied it up for Buffalo on the power play with 1:05 left in regulation. That led to Vinnie Hinostroza notching the winner 1:15 into the extra session.

    Buffalo hosts Philly in the home pre-season opener Tuesday.

    My friend asked if I wanted to go to this game. I told him there was no way I was missing regular season Bills to watch preseason Sabres. I should have gone.

    I've given my reasons for why I expect a step back in the standings. I think next year is the year

    Sabres play the flyers today. The sabres are putting high profile prospects with legit NHL players to see if they can play with em. Good plan, IMO

    Cromrie reportedly played well in a loss where the Sabres couldn't get out of their own zone. Young lineup.

    Quinn apparently also looks good. Had another point last night

    Re: 2022-2023 Sabres Thread

    Buffalo made a number of roster cuts yesterday, sending quite a few down to Rochester(whose training camp opens Monday), returning Matt Savoie back to Winnipeg(WHL)and releasing many more from their PTO contracts(most of them will likely be with the Amerks).

    Notables sent to Rochester include: Linus Weissbach, Brandon Biro, Isak Rosen, Lukas Rousek and Oskari Laaksonen. Among those released from their PTO's: Michael Houser, Michael Mersch and Ethan Prow.

    Very happy to hear after his disaster of his preseason last year, UPL is showing serious flashes of his talent

    Re: 2022-2023 Sabres Thread

    There's one front row seat near the Sabresx2 goal on Oct 13, for about $250, or I can buy one Bills ticket in the sky for $300 on Oct 9.

    Which should I go for?

    I have a decent camera with a tele-zoom, do they allow those into Sabres' games?

    I'm thinking @Historian knows about the use of tele lenses.

    4-1 win last night over Carolina. Thompson has the Gordie Howe hat trick. Goal, assist and a fight. Anderson plays well in Goal. 1 more fake game and then the opener on the 13th.
