Found March 19, 2013 on Buffalo Wins:
Do you ever get to the point where you are just over the drama of cheering for or booing a sports team? When everything starts to feel manufactured and you catch yourself getting worked up about something that really doesn't mean anything? Like, what is the point? When the discord is at its highest, sometimes you just feel kind of over it, especially when we've been through it hundreds of times. Sports are supposed to be fun, but it just sucks the life out of you when it gets to this point of a toxic relationship. That's where I am at with the Sabres. Importance of faceoffs Hecht vs. Kaleta Should Terry Pegula be speaking in public? Is Ryan Miller a leader?  Is Jason Pominville too nice? Is Andrew Peters a bozo? The topics of debate have become so contrived and silly.  For me, the biggest concern is just how ambivalent I am about this team right now.

Why Ryan Miller calling out Patrick Kaleta is a good thing

You may recall Buffalo Sabres noted dirty play guy Patrick Kaleta got suspended for five games for nearly breaking Mike Richards' neck against the boards. Upon his return from suspension, interim Sabres coach Ron Rolston benched Kaleta, as an extension of his punishment, presumably to send a point. I guess it kind of worked, because Kaleta was upset. Not necessarily remorseful...

Ryan Miller Apologizes for Patrick Kaleta Comments, Admits He’s Prone to Say ‘Stupid Things’

That “beep, beep, beep” you hear out of the Buffalo Sabres’ dressing room would be Ryan Miller doing some backpedaling. The Sabres goalie made headlines following Sunday night’s loss to the Washington Capitals, when he called out Buffalo forward Patrick Kaleta after Kaleta complained about being sat down after returning from a suspension. Miller said that Kaleta needed to...

Sabres prospect F Jacobs signs with AHL Rochester

Buffalo Sabres prospect forward Colin Jacobs has signed an amateur tryout contract with the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Rochester. From Coppell, Texas, Jacobs was the Sabres' fourth-round pick in the 2011 NHL draft. He was eligible to be signed by Rochester once his junior career ended last weekend, when Prince George failed to qualify for the Western Hockey...

Sabres showing signs of improvement under Rolston

Ron Rolston has little time to worry that his job title with the Buffalo Sabres is no different than his current place of residence: They're both temporary. Having left his wife and two kids behind at home in Rochester, N.Y., the Sabres interim coach has spent the past month living out of a Buffalo hotel room. And the only way Rolston knows how to bring his life stability is...

Kypreos: 6 Teams Would Love To Have Miller For Stretch Run

Columnist: Myers’ Contract Would Be Tough To Move

Sabres 3, Canadiens 2, OT

Steve Ott's second goal of the game at 2:16 of overtime lifted the Buffalo Sabres to a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday. P.K. Subban was off after his stick clipped Mark Pysyk and, with two seconds left in the man advantage, Ott was at the doorstep to shovel in a rebound and give Buffalo its second win in eight games. Ott and Tyler Ennis scored in the opening...

Weber Is One To Watch For 2015

Playing 7on7 football does not give a runningback much of a chance to show his skills, but Detroit Cass Tech's Mike Weber is definitely a prospect of note for 2015. He was in action at last weekend's New Level Athletics 7on7 in Youngstown.

The F**K You Fantasy POTN (3/17)

It just seems that we have seen Ryan Miller do this way too often in the shortened season. (Nick Wass / AP) It has been a long St. Patrick's Day.

These two guys had to frustrate fantasy owners today, one because he was awful and the other because of an unexpected result. Are you...
