from Mike Harrington of Sabres Edge, Well, it’s long been an issue among their fan base, but the Sabres now have a full-blown issue as a weak team across the hockey world in the wake of last night’s Milan Lucic-Ryan Miller dustup. Read John Vogl’s full recap from the Garden, which includes Miller’s rant against Lucic—and the Boston tough guy’s pithy response that just about says it all: “We wouldn’t accept anything like that. We would have [taken] care of business. But we’re a different team than they are.” Obviously so. The Sabres are getting killed. Billy Jaffe on MSG Live out of New York called them “soft” last night. The Hockey Night in Canada Hot Stove crew of P.J. Stock and Mike Milbury was baffled by the lack of response and the headline from this New England Sports Network column says a a lot too: “Ryan Miller calls Milan Lucic gutless for hit on goalie but Sabres lack of response was truly gutless.” more
