Looing East At The Trade Deadline

from Dan Rosen of NHL.com, Buffalo Sabres: It's hard to nail down exactly what players GM Darcy Regier would be willing to deal before the deadline, but chances are he'll listen on just about anybody.

Kevin Freiheit: Two straight it is

I asked you earlier if Buffalo could make it two straight, and I received pretty much all negative responses. It took 65 minutes and a six round shootout, but the Sabres came a way with a 5-4 victory over Toronto on Thursday night at the First Niagara Center. Steve Ott was once again a huge factor for Buffalo, netting the game-winner in the shootout. Ryan Miller extended the...

“Put Yourself in My Shoes: The Buffalo Sabres”

The Sabres’ season has been nothing short of a disaster, but how will GM Darcy Regier address the defensive problems in this years Draft? For the Buffalo Sabres, this season has been nothing short of a disaster! First, they trade star center Derek Roy to Dallas for gritty winger Steve Ott and defenceman Adam Pardy, then after a dismal start, they fire head coach Lindy Ruff who...

GARTH: Blue Collar Man

Steve Ott had a Cheshire Cat’s grin on his face when I spoke with him in the Sabres room this morning after the Sabres skated. He loves rivalry games like this one he ended in Montreal in OT with the PP GWG . He loves playing the Leafs, too. He reminded me that his team enters tonight only six point out of eighth place in the Eastern standings. He told me that metaphorically...

Optimism and Fire Sales

On Wednesday afternoon I opened my mailbox to find a familiar sight, one that I've come to expect every spring for the last six years.  But never has it left me more incredulous. "An invoice for Sabres playoff tickets?  What kind of sick joke is this?" My favorite part was this excerpt from the letter that accompanied the invoice: “With the NHL Playoffs...
