Another day, another report of Ryan Miller and Thomas Vanek being on their way out of Buffalo. Continue reading "Report: Miller, Vanek Likely Out Of Buffalo This Summer"
BEST OF MAXIM
Thomas Vanek will be back in the lineup tonight in The Peg.
Vanek is on the ice. He will be a game time decision.
Bet on the fact that he will be playing tonight, after missing six games with an upper body muscle strain.
Vanek-Ennis-Stafford in warm-ups.
What becomes of Marcus Foligno? Will 82 sit and 65 play, or, vice versa? Will Marcus run with Porter and Flynn...
To say “things aren’t going according to plan” is an understatement if you’re the Buffalo Sabres. The team has either not qualified or hasn’t advanced past the first round of the playoffs in five seasons, which will soon become six after this season is officially over. Lindy Ruff, a man who has been a fixture behind the Sabres’ bench since 1997, was fired mid-season...

Coming into the 2013 season, Mike Weber wasn’t a player that many had high on their list for the category of most impressive. But in a season in which there hasn’t been too much to be excited about, Weber has become one of the bright spots for the Buffalo Sabres.
The 25-year old Pittsburgh native has been a full-time member of the Sabres roster since the 2010...
Thanks, Dan Hickling
The puck will drop on the Sabres playoffs tonight at 8pm in The Peg.
A regulation win will pull Buffalo into a 9th place tie with Winnipeg (40 point). The rangers and Islanders are tied for 8th place with 42 points.
Buckle your chin strap!
The team will hit the ice momentarily.
I expect Thomas Vanek to not only skate, but play tonight.
Ryan Miller's mother recently wanted to visit the Buffalo zoo, so her son obliged and showed her the zoo.
Miller said that his aunt Laurie accompanied he and his mother to the zoo, There, she shared her sage, wise advice with the goaltender.
The two talked about the Sabres and their quest to make the playoffs after playing so poorly earlier in the season.
The aunt told...
Mr. Anger management Buffalo forward/defenseman John Scott drives a much smaller Stephen Gionta into the boards with what can only be seen as a knuckleheaded penalty, and of course all Gionta can do is laugh about it.
Sure, why not!
I guess it’s funny and no one got hurt, but it’s a dangerous play Scott. In my opinion, Scott is nothing more than a cement head, but also...
Nathan Gerbe scored the only goal in the shootout to give the Buffalo Sabres a 3-2 victory Sunday night over New Jersey that extended the Devils' losing streak to seven games.
Ryan Miller stopped 37 shots through overtime, and all three shootout attempts - included a victory-clinching glove save on Travis Zajac.
Steve Ott extended his goal streak to three games, and Patrick...
The Minnesota Wild are once again a franchise on the rise, after the moves they made in the offseason. Actually, the Wild have a chance to go deep in the Stanley Cup playoffs, based on recent moves they have made.
Wild GM Chuck Fletcher went out and picked up Jason Pominville at the trade deadline and the newly acquired forward is now playing on the top line with Zach Parise...
The Sabres survived in last night's victory. If it weren't for Ryan Miller, they wouldn't have won that game. The Devils were all over Buffalo and took almost 40 shots on goal. The Sabres may not have deserved the win, but they got it.
One thing I noticed over the past couple of home games is that the crowd has really been into it. The games were not sellouts, but...
About a year ago, the drunks boys over at Dear God, Why Us? Sports planned one of their occupy Nassau trips to see the Sabres battle the Islanders. At the time, the Sabres had just come off that January road trip from hell. So we didn't go into the game feeling particularly good about them.
At one point, some of us in the group started to heckle Ryan Miller. I have absolutely...
Pardon the gratuitous pumping of Steve Ottâs tires.
The guy deserves a fist-pump and an high-five for changing the culture in the Buffalo room. The water bottle is NEVER half full when Otterâs in the room, on the bench, on the ice, at the hotel, or in the air on the team charter. Otterâs fiercely passionate about his teammates and heâs never going to quit...
The Buffalo Sabres continue to try to inch their way toward what would be an unexpected playoff berth.
The New Jersey Devils, meanwhile, are caught in an ugly spiral that could cause them to miss the postseason for only the second time in 16 seasons.
Buffalo aims for its third straight victory on Sunday night as it hosts New Jersey, which is trying to end a six-game losing streak...
