Pierre LeBrun of ESPN answers some rants from the fans… The Sabres need to fire Lindy Ruff and Darcy Regier, especially Regier as he’s the worst GM in hockey and constantly flops at the trade deadline with his terrible trades, even since Pegula bought the Sabres and brought money with him, he managed to waste it on Ville Leino and Christian Ehrhoff, Darcy needs to go if the Sabres want to win the cup. My take (LeBrun): Deep breaths, sir, deep breaths. If you had to fire all the GMs that had interest in Leino and Ehrhoff this past summer, there would be a long list of GMs out of work today. Leino has struggled the most, and it’s important to know it’s the first time he’s ever made big money in the NHL and I think that can weight on a player. But his past record shows he can play clutch minutes (see the 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs and finals with the Flyers). I don’t think firing the longest-tenured coach or his GM would solve anything. And I don’t see it happening, either. more rants...

Sabres Fail To Convert In The Clutch, Lose At Home Again

Buffalo, NY – There’s something about the Buffalo Sabres playing the teams at the bottom of the NHL standings – they just can’t seem to beat them.  Jhonas Enroth played a strong game, making 29 saves, but even that couldn’t lead the Sabres to victory as they fell 2-1 to the New York Islanders in front of a restless and riot-ready crowd at the First Niagara Center.

Buffalo Sports: They Don't All Have to be Blue Collar

Stevie Johnson is an emotional guy. However, he's not a showboat or a glory hound. Spend a few minutes reading his Twitter feed or listening to an interview and you realize that he is a humble person, a family man, and a lover of life. But he's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination just like you or I are not. The same passion that feeds his enthusiasm for the game...
