Grigorenko sent back to juniors?

I have zero idea what they are thinking. Nothing like trying to destroy the kids confidence. Horrible handing of him.

All the Buddy Nix "hate"

I get it. I really do. If you ask me whether or not Buddy Nix should still be the GM of the Bills, my answer would be an emphatic no! I also have very plausible, well thought out reasons for it....

Accelerated Buyouts?

Don't think the Sabres will use one now, but should they?

How Sabres owner Terry Pegula helped keep Bill O'Brien at Penn State

+

Interesting how the NCAA works. Players are limited in types of jobs they can hold, etc., but coaches can be bribed to stay put. Oh well. There's this one too: http://www.buffalonews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20130104/SPORTS/130109736/1003

Why helmets can't solve concussions

+

A great article on the topic of concussions in hockey. It's a complicated topic, but it explains how there is no easy answer to the problem. Great read if you have the time.

Someone let TMQ (and almost everyone else) know that Stevie Johnson wasn't penalized against the Bengals last year!

4

OK...I've been critical of Stevie, but everyone needs to understand something....he wasn't penalized last year. He got fined, which is why he thought he was OK....I'm still annoyed with him, but that was his line of thinking.

My biggest issue with Ralph Wilson's comments

There has been a lot of issue taken in the past few days with Ralph Wilson's comments. A lot of that has been a hand wringing that it means the Bills will pass on a franchise signal caller because...

Sabres all-time leading stat leaders

OK...so I'm going back to the sporcle well. Take the quiz and see how you'll do. I got 120 out of 200. I missed some obvious choices who showed up multiple times (for example someone might have played the most games and have the most goals, etc. and they count twice). Post your high score!

In the 12 years with no playoffs, the Bills have given to me...

OK...so someone made a reference to the 12 days of Christmas around here the other day, and I see a Fan Shot of the 2008 Buffalo Bills singing the 12 Days of Christmas (for some reason) and it got...

Another Black Out

3

I was hoping that the Bills would figure out a way to get rid of the remaining tickets, but 24,000 is quite a lot. Too bad, although I'm not sure I care to watch if they don't play better. It stopped being fun weeks ago.

Need help regarding the rest of the fantasy season

OK, I am trying to tinker with my lineup before the fantasy playoffs starts. I have 1 allowable transaction remaining and this is the last week I can make a transaction (no transactions during...

Kaleta needs to get his act together

I found it difficult to watch the video the NHL released supporting their decision to suspend Kaleta.  Not because it annoyed me, but because it was a Sabre doing all of that cheap and dirty...

Matt Warren a guest on Finger Lakes Radio

Matt Warren was a guest this past Sunday on the Bren Zone on Finger Lakes Radio. It's about 10(ish) minutes in if you want to skip right to it.

Sabres New Facilities

4

A great photo gallery by WGR's Jeremy White of the new facilities at the FN center. I think the Sabres should do tours of the facilities in the offseason. The cost could be a donation to a charity of the Sabres choice (or they could do what every other team would do and pocket the dough). I got my new profile image from this galley. Things look pretty sweet.

Add/Drop Dilemma

So, I am in a 12 team keeper league. My keeper has been (and barring catastrophic injury will continue to be) Adrian Peterson. This year, the day before rumors of a third surgery appeared in the...

The view from an optimistic pessimist

I've been having a hard time getting my head around this Bills team all year.  I am what you might call an "optimistic pessimist".  I always hope for the best and can find reason to be encouraged,...

Senators' new jersey leaked early

Hahahahahaha I love that this happened to Ottawa. I love more that the Sabres did it (even if it was unintentional).

The only thing Stevie Johnson did wrong all day. A little more to the left next time Stevie!

The Bills - The 29th most valuable franchise

+

If I'm reading this correctly, the team has an income of about $40 million? This also shows why revenue sharing is so important if the Bills are to stay in Buffalo long term. One thing I totally disagree with - the fact that they blame blackouts partially on ticket price increases. If the team is good, every game will sell out.

Salary Cap Floor

There are reports that there are several teams (Florida and Colorado among them) that are looking to spend big to get to the salary cap floor.  So, the question people are asking is, how will this...

What will the Flyers and their fans blame the Game 5 loss on?

The Flyers organization and their fans seem to be very good at making excuses for their losses.  I wonder:  What will the excuse for Game 5 be?  Will it be Lindy Ruff?  Gerbe?  Myers?  The...

If I were writing Pegula's statement

I've been thinking a lot about what I would like to hear the new owner of the Sabres say today.  Ultimately, I realize that it doesn't really matter what he says, it is what he does.  However,...

Where to go from here? What are your thoughts?

  It’s been a while since I’ve posted here.  Two reasons.  Life is nuts and I have time to check in, but little time to put any thoughts into anything.  Two:  I don’t have cable anymore for $...

Puck Money ranking highlights the value of Youth

+

As I often say to my wife: Do you want the good news, or the bad news. From what I understand, this is a point per dollar spent (or per salary cap dollar....I haven't read up on the methodology), so it isn't entirely about production. However, in the salary cap era, you need to have those pre-contract extension break-out players. Myers and Miller=good. Vanek and Hecht=bad. At least according to this. I'm going to read through the whole list at some point. See anything interesting?

I'm a realist.  I realize that the preseason doesn't necessarily mean anything, and often doesn't.  But for a team such as the Bills, I think there are many benchmarks that can be used to measure...

Looks like Clarke MacArthur was a rental player? 2.4 million. Yeah, I definately wouldn't pay him that. Kinda makes me worry about Kennedy.....
