Found February 05, 2013 on Sportress of Blogitude:
An obese Florida Panthers fan caused a flabby disturbance during Sunday afternoon’s game between the hometown Buffalo Sabres and his beloved squad. And while he may love butter and trans fats more than the Panthers, this chubby fella wanted to make sure that the Panthers players were aware that they had fans inside Buffalo’s First Niagara Center. One could advance the argument that he did not need to remove his jersey for the team to take notice, but this guy probably fancies himself something of a showman. A showman with little sense of decency and a complete dearth of any semblance of modesty. Confidence? Oh, he has confidence in spades, as you will bear witness to in the video below. The man apparently removed his jersey and began twirling it to celebrate a goal by the Panthers. And although there is no way to make a causal connection nor a correlation between the two incidents, it is interesting how a fight breaks out on the ice shortly after the kibosh was put on  his jersey-...

Kevin Freiheit: How much longer will Sabres keep Ruff?

Here is today's mailbag. There were plenty of negative and frustrated fans asking questions about the coaching, so most of this turned into a Lindy Ruff debate. Name: Flustered Sometimes I feel like a one man island but I dislike Sekera extremely. Almost every time he touches the puck it seems he loses it. I understand offensively he is a worthy commodity but isn't it...

Buffalo Sabres: What To Do Anymore?

It seems as if the mid-winter slumber of the Buffalo Sabres is going to last a bit longer than expected this year. The team, after opening 2-0, has lost seven of its last eight games and have, at times, looked like an AHL team going against an NHL club. It’s clearly not the way management, players, and fans saw the 2013 lockout-shortened season playing out at the start.  With...

Kevin Freiheit: Pardy recalled from Rochester

Adam Pardy has been called up from Rochester and will make his Sabres debut tomorrow night against Ottawa. BUFFALO, N.Y. (February 4, 2013) --- Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier today announced that defenseman Adam Pardy has been recalled from the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League. Pardy (3/29/84, 6'4", 226 lbs) will join the Sabres for the...

GARTH: Ehr On The Side Of Caution

Lindy Ruff would rather err on the side of caution with the health of D Christian Ehrhoff. Ruff told Howard Simon on his weekly radio show that the Sabres recalled Adam Pardy from Rochester as a precaution. Ehrhoff suffered a muscle related issue in Sunday’s game vs. Florida. Ehrhoff will take the skate in Ottawa and will be evaluated after that. Better to be safe than...

More chances, more goals and more losses

There isn’t all that much to sum up with the Buffalo Sabres at this point. Another game, another night allowing four goals and yet another loss. This is the same broken record that’s been playing for this entire 1-6-1 stretch. Due to injuries, Adam Pardy made his Sabres debut and Lindy Ruff also chose to get Jhonas Enroth some action although the result on the scoreboard...

GARTH: No More Mulligans

“We got all the way to 3-1, and played stupid”. Thomas Vanek nailed it. Again. It seems like these days that Vanek is the only Sabres who exhibits any form of consistency on a game to game basis. With Vanek, we’ve grown accustomed to knowing what we’re going to get from him. The same can’t be said about many of the other guys on the Buffalo roster. ...

GARTH: Hotel Pardy

Adam Pardy knows the ropes. You pass the same people on the way down as you meet on the way up. When Sabres training camp broke, the team waived Pardy to AHL Rochester. He cleared waivers and immediately dug into his tool box in search of the solution to get himself noticed by Darcy Regier. He pulled on his boots and started moving masses of humanity with his broad shoulders. By doing so, he...

A Start For The Ages

We know that Thomas Vanek leaves this weekend with an NHL leading 19 points, that news has been well covered.  He has carried this team on his back, in a year where the rest of the team, sans Pominville, is struggling to find their offense.  This isn’t unusual for Vanek.  He is notoriously a fast starter.  In fact, over his career, he has more than a point per game average...

Best Player So Far This Season

I have been picking the MVP of the season from as early a point as I reasonably can in the season.  This is in part to try to determine at which point in the season the eventual MVP emerges.  My first pick this season was Thomas Vanek of the Buffalo Sabres.  Last week he was surpassed by Patrick Marleau of the San Jose Sharks.  I think Vanek has taken over the lead again.  ...

Travis Yost: GAMEDAY: Ottawa Hosts Struggling Buffalo

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- Injuries may have left the ranks of both the Buffalo Sabres (3-5-1) and Ottawa Senators (5-3-1) depleted, but head coaches Lindy Ruff and Paul MacLean remain confident in their respective clubs. Such confidence may be justified with a victory on Tuesday, when Buffalo and Ottawa do battle at Scotiabank Place. Buffalo arrives to the...

Panthers at Flyers game preview

Game time: 7 p.m. ETTV: FOX Sports Florida The Philadelphia Flyers have followed a three-game skid with back-to-back wins for the second time this season. An offense that has mostly struggled is a major reason for that inconsistency. Their best offensive game of the season came against the Florida Panthers, who have been among the league's worst at stopping opponents heading...
