It just seems that we have seen Ryan Miller do this way too often in the shortened season. (Nick Wass / AP) It has been a long St. Patrick's Day. The end of the week always brings fantasy frustrations to a boiling point one way or the other. These two guys had to frustrate fantasy owners today, one because he was awful and the other because of an unexpected result. Are you ready? Let's go! ======================================================== TOP F**KUP! -- Ryan Mller -- Buffalo Sabres Miller has been a source of extreme fantasy anxiety all season for his owners. While his save percentage is decent, his GAA is around 2.90 which is not good news. Ryan Miller stopped 20 of 25 shots in the loss, which is only an .800 save percentage. That is not going to get it done on a "Fantasy Sunday". Mr. Miller, you have done this far too often this season. Owners of Miller really do want to jump ship and some think Miller just wants out of Buffalo again. He su...

Why Ryan Miller calling out Patrick Kaleta is a good thing

You may recall Buffalo Sabres noted dirty play guy Patrick Kaleta got suspended for five games for nearly breaking Mike Richards' neck against the boards. Upon his return from suspension, interim Sabres coach Ron Rolston benched Kaleta, as an extension of his punishment, presumably to send a point. I guess it kind of worked, because Kaleta was upset. Not necessarily remorseful...

Kypreos: 6 Teams Would Love To Have Miller For Stretch Run

He didn't name names, but Nick Kypreos said today that, despite what is considered to be a weak goaltending market, there would be plenty of interest in Ryan Miller if the Sabres wanted to move him. Continue reading "Kypreos: 6 Teams Would Love To Have Miller For Stretch Run"

Timing Of Grigorenko Demotion Is No Coincidence

It certainly was a lousy PR move, much worse than the Tim Kennedy pseudocrisis a few years ago that nearly triggered an earthquake in South Buffalo.  But, contrary to the beliefs of angry Sabres fans, it wasn't a vote of confidence for other underperformers on the team. It's likely no coincidence that yesterday was the exact day Mikhail Grigorenko was sent back to juniors...

Ryan Miller Apologizes for Patrick Kaleta Comments, Admits He’s Prone to Say ‘Stupid Things’

That “beep, beep, beep” you hear out of the Buffalo Sabres’ dressing room would be Ryan Miller doing some backpedaling. The Sabres goalie made headlines following Sunday night’s loss to the Washington Capitals, when he called out Buffalo forward Patrick Kaleta after Kaleta complained about being sat down after returning from a suspension. Miller said that Kaleta needed to...

Weber Is One To Watch For 2015

Playing 7on7 football does not give a runningback much of a chance to show his skills, but Detroit Cass Tech's Mike Weber is definitely a prospect of note for 2015. He was in action at last weekend's New Level Athletics 7on7 in Youngstown.

Grigorenko’s Demotion

As a general rule it is a bad idea to rush your draft choices into the NHL.  This rule of thumb exists regardless of the question of hurting their development by rushing them too quickly into a role that they are not ready to succeed in.  A player can become an unrestricted free agent at age 27 or after seven NHL seasons in the current CBA.  A player who is rushed to the NHL at...

The Buffalo Sabres must be sellers at the deadline

With the Buffalo Sabres season slowly swirling around the bottom of the toilet bowl, dangerously close to hitting the sewers, fans can root for one of two things to happen. They can hope the team pulls out a ridiculous run to get into the Top 8 in the East, or they can strip the team of replaceable assets, stockpile picks and prospects in anticipation of a deep 2013 draft, and get...

The Song remains the same

I can’t be the only one out here that really hates seeing the Sabres lose to the Ottawa Senators, am I?  Sure, I mean I hate when they lose to your Flyers, your Bruins, your Maple Leaves Leafs, etc.  But I really don’t like watching the Senators take 2 points from Buffalo, ever. See, here’s the thing, I know many of you still have bugs up ya about Carolina getting over...

Sabres-Canadiens Preview

One of the hottest NHL teams outside of Pittsburgh has been the surging Montreal Canadiens, who are getting solid contributions from seemingly everyone who puts on the sweater. They're still not taking the disappointing Buffalo Sabres lightly, though. Montreal looks to extend its winning streak while dealing Buffalo a sixth consecutive road loss Tuesday night in the first of...

Getting out of hockey hell

Do you ever get to the point where you are just over the drama of cheering for or booing a sports team? When everything starts to feel manufactured and you catch yourself getting worked up about something that really doesn't mean anything? Like, what is the point? When the discord is at its highest, sometimes you just feel kind of over it, especially when we've been through...
