Kevin Freiheit: The Matt Ellis Factor

The Sabres have been calling players up from Rochester and sending them down on a frequent basis this season. Regardless of who they call up or send down, it doesn't really seem to be making a big difference. However, there is one player who does seem to make that difference, and that would Matt Ellis. Call it luck, a coincidence, or whatever you want, but over the past...

Kevin Freiheit: Will Varone get a chance?

The Sabres claimed Konopka. Saw that coming a mile away after the Stafford injury. Buffalo also credited Tyler Myers with the goal last night, not Matt Ellis. The Sabres have had a rough season to this point, but if you look in the AHL, you’d see that some Amerks’ players are finding success. The Americans are in the hunt for a playoff spot with as they sit in 10th...

Q&A about Kevin Porter

OK, I emailed the Avs guy right after the signing, thinking this guy would be our 4th center. However, the consensus seems to be that he'll be chilling in the minors next year. But remember how guys like Matt Ellis and Cody McCormick were vets from other NHL teams and started off in the minors for the Sabres, only to then be brought up and become regulars because of injuries...

Puck Previews: Boston at Buffalo; Wild signs beer-leaguer

Matt Ellis used to be afraid to look at the Bruins bench. But not tonight. Preview: St. Louis Blues at Pittsburgh Penguins, 7:00 p.m. ET Will Sidney Crosby's second game be as awesome as his first? I'm gonna say no, simply because the St. Louis Blues will probably try to stop him. Mind you, in the Islanders' defense, it was hard for them to do much defending while holding...
