Found March 13, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
Good luck trying to pry information out of the Buffalo Sabres organization these days. It would be easier to bust into Fort Knox to steal a king's ransom than it would be to abscond with trade secrets and inside information. With six weeks remaining in the regular season, many NHL teams have been circling over head in recent weeks. Like vultures in the arid desert, they are patiently waiting...

Rolston’s Overuse Of Ott Exposes Sabres’ Scoring Woes

Some quick Sabres trivia: Which two Buffalo forwards lead the team in average ice time since Ron Rolston replaced Lindy Ruff as head coach? If you don’t have Steve Ott as one of your answers, you lose. As a matter of fact, Ott and captain Jason Pominville are the only 2 forwards on the team under Rolston to average more than 20 minutes per game. Some will tell you this is...

Sabres D Sulzer done for season

Buffalo Sabres defenseman Alexander Sulzer will miss the rest of the season after having surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right knee. Interim coach Ron Rolston provided the update Thursday, after Sulzer was spotted walking on crutches in the locker room. Sulzer had missed eight games since being hurt when his skate got caught in a rut in a 4-0 loss to the Islanders on Feb...

Kevin Freiheit: Miller time in Buffalo...how much longer?

I attended Tuesday's Sabres/Rangers game as fan for one of the few times this season, and it was nice to see them, and Jhonas Enroth, finally get a win. Plus, it was in regulation, which the Sabres have only done seven times this season. While I was at the game, I received a text stating a rumor that Ryan Miller's days are numbered in Buffalo and that the Kings have interest...

Sabres G Enroth will face Rangers; Miller to sit

Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller has a sinus infection, meaning backup Jhonas Enroth will start against the New York Rangers. Interim coach Ron Rolston provided the update after Miller missed the pre-game skate Tuesday morning. Miller is healthy enough to serve in a backup role. It's the second start in three games for Enroth. He allowed two goals in a 3-2 shootout loss at...

Leino, Ennis Expected To Return Saturday

Tyler Ennis is expected to return to the lineup Saturday afternoon(Photo Courtesy: Dan Hickling) Despite the announcement that Alexander Sulzer will miss the remainder of the season due to knee surgery, there was some good news that came out of Sabres practice this morning at First Niagara Center. Tyler Ennis, who missed Tuesday’s game against New York, and Ville Leino, who hasn’t...

GARTH: Velcome Back, Ville

Thanks to the Buffalo Sabres, I’m able to watch their morning practice session from the heated comfort of my office. Good to see my good man, Brian Duff and Rob Ray on my computer as the practice session is being streamed live on sabres.com. ** In a bit of a surprise, Ron Rolston is skating Ville Leino on a line with Ott and Grigorenko. You'll recall that Lindy Ruff...

No Kaleta Means No Payback

Tonight will be the first time the Rangers and Sabres meet since this... So after hearing this statement from Marc Staal on the Patrick Kaleta hit during the post game... “It (ticks) you off, it gets you angry. It’s a cheap hit. The biggest thing is you do want to hurt them, you want to make them feel that. We were able to get two, but it doesn’t do that kind of...

Goal Breakdown: Rangers sloppy, let two points slip away in Buffalo

The Sabres were without Tyler Ennis and Ryan Miller, are one of the worst teams in the league, and don’t play defense, so this game was supposed to be a cakewalk. It wasn’t, and while the Sabres were lucky to get out of the first ten minutes scoreless, they outplayed the Rangers in the second, forcing a lot of penalties. The Rangers played fairly well, but had some sloppy stretches...

Goalie Quality Starts: Part One – Introducing a New Measure of Goalie Consistency

These days, there is more than enough chatter about Ryan Miller to go around.  Some people want him traded before this year’s deadline because they see him walking at the end of next year when he becomes a free agent, while others think that is the worst decision this team could possible make.  They feel like the team in front of him has been a flaming pile of dog-do and without...

GARTH: Roster Roullette

Sabres fans have no fear, Ville Leino is here. Curb your enthusiasm. Your emotion is overwhelming me right now. It took 26 games to get to this point, however, the Ott-Grigorenko-Leino trio is about to make its regular season debut. If the preseason Blue and Gold scrimmage is an early indicator of things to come, the 9-25-23 line is a power line that will bring needed jam...

Sabres And Rangers Scoreless After One: Rapid Report

(November 18, 2011 – Source: Rick Stewart/Getty Images North America) The Buffalo Sabres are on life support, putting it mildly, when it comes to making the playoffs this year. They entered the night just one point ahead of Florida for the lowest point total in the NHL, and seven points back of eighth place in the Eastern Conference.  Needless to say, chances are ultra-slim,...

Net Effect Week 8

  A bunch of situations to discuss this week, so let’s get right into it: Buffalo Sabres- Ryan Miller is dealing with a sinus infection, and although Buffalo doesn’t play again until Saturday, there’s a chance he may miss that game. Miller has lost four in a row (one was in a shootout where he came in the third period late in a tie game) but has yet to show flashes...

Rangers Fall in Buffalo as Enroth, Foligno Help Sabres Roll

The New York Rangers and Buffalo Sabres hooked up for the second time in nine days with each team headed in opposite directions.  The Rangers are winners of five of their last six games, including a 3-2 shootout win over the Sabres last Sunday at Madison Square Garden.  The win snapped the Sabres three game winning streak [...]
