Sabres D Mike Weber has had better games than the last Sabres games against the Blue Jackets.
Weber was on the ice for all four Columbus goals. He finished the forgettable game with a -4 rating. His D partner (at least for the first period) Tyler Myers, finished the game -3.
Sabres coach Ron Rolston has decided to scratch Weber for tonight's game in Chicago.
Personally, I'm not a big fan...

from John Vogl of the Buffalo News,
Will the fans put up with what they’re seeing? Will owner Terry Pegula? If so, for how long?
For a good chunk of the crowd in First Niagara Center, the answer was 40 minutes. There were rows and rows of empty seats as the third period began, the fans apparently deciding they had better ways to spend their time. The ones who stuck around...
Buffalo Sabres puke Patrick Kaleta has been suspended by the National Hockey League's department of Player Safety, pending a hearing for this dirty hit on Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson. Kaleta is a repeat offender, having been suspended a couple of times, so I expect him to get at least a 2-3 game suspension for this hit.
From the NHL.COM --- At 3:10 of...
The NHL announced Patrick Kaleta will have an in-person hearing on Tuesday for his hit on Jack Johnson Thursday night.
The Sabres play Chicago tonight and Minnesota Monday, so Kaleta will have missed (served) two games before the Tuesday hearing.
At one point an in-person hearing has meant a 5+ game suspension, but this year at least one requested in-person hearing resulted in...
A pair of NHL players were sent to Principal Shanahan's office for delivering hits to the head this week.
The league announced Friday that Vancouver defenseman Alex Edler has been suspended three games for an illegal check to the head of San Jose forward Tomas Hertl, and Buffalo's Patrick Kaleta has been scheduled for a hearing with officials.
Kaleta clipped Columbus'...
This must be the quiet before the storm.
Friday came and went and the NHL didn't conduct its hearing with Buffalo Sabres right wing Patrick Kaleta.
The reason for the delay is that Kaleta will have an in-person hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Tuesday for the contact that he made to the head of Columbus D-man jack Johnson in the first period of the Blue...
Thomas Vanek of the Buffalo Sabres went the And-1 route for this amazing goal against the Columbus Blue Jackets. In the first period Vanek adjusted to the pass and went between-the-legs to tip in this terrific goal.

Were it not for Ryan Miller's net heroics, the Sabres could have easily lost 6-1 to the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks. once again, Miller was a rock star, making save after dramatic, game-changing save.
The 33 year old Ryan Miller is too good for this crap. His team is 0-5-1 in its first six games played. Golatending is NOT the reason why this team has...
Buffalo Sabres forward Thomas Vanek didn’t want San Jose Sharks rookie Tomas Hertl to be the only one scoring between-the-legs goals. Vanek deflected the puck past Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky while his stick was between his legs. Personally, I think the most impressive part was the no look pass by his teammate Steve Ott with a Blue Jackets defender right on...
Buffalo Sabres right wing Patrick Kaleta will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety for an incident against the Columbus Blue Jackets last night.
Kaleta was offered the opportunity for an in-person hearing as required by provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement for any suspension that can exceed five games.
At 3:10 of the first period, Kaleta collided with Colu...
from Damien Cox of The Spin,
--The Buffalo Sabres. Winless in five with only five goals scored, this has started in nightmarishly bad fashion for Ron Rolston's group, an odd collection of unproven kids, highly-paid vets who have never lived up to their contracts and a veteran goalie, Ryan Miller, who maybe should have left two seasons ago.
Miller is at least a card the...
Buffalo Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta has been suspended, pending a hearing, as the NHL’s Vice President of Hockey and Business Development and Director of Player Safety, Brendan Shanahan looks into Kaleta’s head hit on Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson during Thursday nights game at the First Niagara Center.
The hearing was originally scheduled for Friday, but has...
The Buffalo Sabres have the NHL's worst record, and they'll try to shed their winless label at home Monday night against the Minnesota Wild.
It's been all about a lack of offense for the Sabres (0-5-1), who are looking to avoid matching the worst start in franchise history. They went winless in seven straight to open the 1990-91 and 1999-2000 seasons.
This Buffalo club...
It won't surprise me at all if I learn tomorrow at the game day skate that Jason Pominville and Thomas Vanek had dinner together in Buffalo on Sunday night.
The Vaneks and Pominvilles are as close as two young families can be.
The best friends have likely had October 13th circled on their personal calendars since the NHL league office released the season schedule in August...
The Buffalo Sabres are off to their worst start in 14 years.
Facing the reigning Stanley Cup champions on the road isn't likely to change that.
The Sabres attempt to avoid a sixth straight defeat Saturday night when they meet the Chicago Blackhawks.
Buffalo (0-4-1) hasn't endured a worst start to a season since going 0-5-2 to begin 1999-2000. The Sabres have shown few...
Ryan Miller survived an onslaught through the first two periods and kept the Buffalo Sabres close, but Corey Crawford was good enough to earn a hard-fought victory on Saturday night at the United Center. The Blackhawks put 37 shots on … Continue reading →The post Corey Crawford, Blackhawks Outduel Sabres appeared first on Committed Indians.
