SABRES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Zemgus Girgensons, The Buffalo Sabres Version Of “Where’s Waldo?”

The Buffalo Sabres have a handful of players currently on one-year contracts.  Adam begins examining their fates, starting with the one who is missing in action. Let me start off by saying that I like Buffalo Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons. How can you not have a special place in your heart for the Lovable Latvian?!

Sabres’ Evander Kane one of NHL’s hottest scorers

BUFFALO – Looking back, Sabres winger Evander Kane acknowledges that, yes, he probably rushed back to the lineup after breaking four ribs opening night. Following an 11-game absence over three weeks, Kane returned and generated almost nothing. Seven weeks ago, he was one of the NHL’s biggest disappointments, still goalless in 12 appearances as the calendar turned to December...

Sam Reinhart Has Kicked The Sophomore Slump Despite Buffalo Sabres’ Anemic Offense

The Buffalo Sabres second-best rookie in 2015-16 has shaken off a slow start to put his stamp on the team’s 2016-17 campaign. Over the summer, I whipped together a series called Buffalo Sabres Player Projections, in which I tried to predict how well most of the Sabres’ roster would perform in the 2016-17 season. When […] Sam Reinhart Has Kicked The Sophomore Slump Despite Buffalo...

The Scapegoat

One Sabres Fan’s Quest To Become a Better Human Being I remember the first object of my Sabres scorn almost as clearly as I remember my first girlfriend. History tells us that Lawrence Morely Hillman played for 15 different teams and won six Stanley Cups over the course of a 22 year career, but I remember Larry Hillman as the slowest skater I have ever seen in a Buffalo Sabres...

Eichel Is Being Overlooked

April of 2015 wasn’t a great time to be a Buffalo Sabres fan. The team finished last in the NHL for the second consecutive year. The Sabres’ leading point scorer was Tyler Ennis, whose 46 points put him at 110th in the league. In general, they were a terrible hockey team. However, fans knew that this was about to change thanks to the NHL Draft Lottery. Because the team finished...

Conference & Division Record Sinking Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres have underperformed through the halfway mark of the season with the expectations that were set back in the summer. The club was expected to compete for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and even potentially sneak into the tournament for the first time since 2011. The long list of excuses for the poor first half include injuries, bad defensive play and coaching...

Recap: Sabres blow another early lead, lose to Leafs 4-3

A familiar story leads to another loss to a divisional opponent. As a comedian says when dusting off an old chestnut of a joke - stop me if you’ve heard this one before. There wasn’t anything funny about the Sabres blowing yet another first period lead en route to a 4-3 loss to the Maple Leafs - another key divisional loss to a team that Buffalo is trailing in the standings...

It was a nice gesture!But things changed quite quickly, as they often can in the NHL.The Maple Leafs went on to score three unanswered goals against Lehner in the second period, giving...

Sabres’ Taylor Fedun waiting for another goal

TORONTO – On a delayed penalty early in Monday afternoon’s 4-1 win, Buffalo Sabres defenseman Taylor Fedun thought he had scored his third NHL goal. The puck went in the net, the horn sounded and the crowd cheered. The officials, however, had blown the play dead when Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen made a quick save. No goal. “I thought it was just a rebound off the goalie,”...

Ennis returned after missing 30 games with a groin injury that required surgery. Jake McCabe also had a goal and Robin Lehner made 31 saves after missing the past three games with an illness.

Total Eclipse of the Reinhart

Apparently January 10th is Sam Reinhart day. Last year, he scored his first career hat trick on January 10th and he followed it up with another three point night yesterday. Reinhart scored a goal and two assists with four shots in the 4-1 win over the Flyers. It almost feels a bit disappointing because he missed a wide open net that I'd expect a high school player to bury. Regardless...

Evander Kane and Kevan Miller have a serious Twitter beef

Buffalo Sabres left winger Evander Kane is a controversial player, to say the least, one who seems to always end up on the wrong side of the headlines. After the Sabres’ loss Saturday against the Boston Bruins, Kane was at it again, this time calling out Bruins’ defenseman Kevan Miller on Twitter. After the Bruins’ win, Miller told CSN New England that Kane, “was excited...

David Legwand is calling it a career. The 36-year-old announced in a statement that he’s walking away from the league after 16 seasons. “What a great ride this was, especially having the chance to play nearly 1,000 games for my drafting club in Nashville, and seeing the growth of the game there; to fulfilling a dream of playing for my hometown Red Wings; to experiencing the...
