I was not a lover of Torts and saw it all unravel here long before even the media did but he brought respectability here following the laugh out loud country club era. Give credit where credit is due.

Just thinking the Sabres got to be loving how tonight went. They didn't lose!

How can you not miss JT??? The love and passion for the game is really missed here but his stubborn 2 dimensional thinking is a detriment, especially as the team got more talent and less blue collar. He sure did have those boys in shape and ready to play though.

Why not do the 5 minute 4 on 4 then go to 3 on 3 sudden death?

I'm always in a good mood for days after we trounce the Flyers :). Tomorrow should be OK. The south burbs of Buffalo got buried. The actual city of Buffalo got much less. We'll see what Buff town gets today as the snow band is setting up right in the city. North of ther in Niagra got nothing. Fascinating lake effect snow weather event.

I just got home for the 3rd seeing a 2-0 lead - what a poleasant surprise - then watching the 3rd and seeing them taking the body????  And they're winning?  Funny how that works

@SmellyKisio @McPhee37  7-7-4 - technically they are 7-11 even though they get points for OT losses.  That is significantly under 500

@stevmore @AnnoyingJoe Kreids will find his balance, I just wish it would happen already.  He's got to throw that big body around to be effective. Players have to fear him to make his speed game more effective.  He just has to figure out when and how to do that.  Right now he's afraid to make the big hits which could be the refs or the coach's fault and AV needs to let him play his game and accept the fact that a few penatlties are part of his learning curve.

@EHBIGAPPLE @betweentheworlds Bettman's boy's conduct has been a huge slap in the face to American Hockey on NBC and the NHL.  Bettman's boy is a naughty boy and I think his task master should release the hounds

@stevmore I think this season is demonstrating that you need defensive depth so I wouldn't replace a proven player for a promising prospect but rather try to buid upon what we already have.  Staal is a curious case becuase he still hasn't played like he did pre-injuries.

@EHBIGAPPLE @betweentheworlds Crosby = Huge disgrace.  Could be the best in the league.  Should be the best but his attitude has corrupted his otherwise other- worldly skills but then again he's Lemieux's boy.  Nuff said

@Derek Stepan One of the many thingss I gave a "heads up" to my fellow fans here was that the loss of Boyle and Strahlmen would be significant.  I also predicted a 20 goal season for Boyler this year which was laughable to most but guess what, he's a quarter of the way there.  Strahlman was at times our steadiest Dman and like old Lead Foot (aka The Giraffe) were uner-appreciated players - but this is a cap world.  Decisions were made.  Time to move on.  With a bit of development and tweeking our bottom 6 will be fine and we now have the new "lgiraffe" in Hayes who's a bit more fleet of foot, though still pretty lubering and more skilled than boyle who plays a similar game - and besides Derek, instead of blaming your team mates for your lack of success lets see a little more fire in YOUR belly!!!

@EHBIGAPPLE I would add a 3rd quality: Guile.  Great coaches can adapt to the play on the ice and modify their game plan accordingly quickly.  The strategist is a dying art in this world of systems and numbers but this is a warrior sport and there is nothing more important to the warrior than strategy.  AV should read The Book of Five Rings by Miyomato Musashi.  I'm not saying AV is void of strategy, just that he's too slow to adapt like most coaches today.  Your points above are excellent and spot on IMO.
