STEVE OTT RUMORS & GOSSIP

With Ott gone, who will be Buffalo’s next captain?

Since the start of 2013, three different players have worn the ‘C’ in Buffalo — Jason Pominville, Thomas Vanek, and Steve Ott — and they have all been traded. That’s created something of a leadership vacuum for the Sabres going into the 2014-15 campaign. Fortunately, there have some candidates to fill that void. Perhaps the most obvious player is Brian Gionta, who inked...

Questions Remain For The St. Louis Blues

from Louie Korac at NHL.com, Can the Blues compete for the Cup with their revamped goaltending? -- The Blues allowed Ryan Miller to leave via free agency and will confidently turn to veteran Brian Elliott and rookie Jake Allen, who has 15 games of NHL experience under his belt.

Blues re-sign forward Steve Ott to two-year deal

But Miller is gone and Steve Ott remains, having signed a two-year free-agent contract with the Blues, the team announced Thursday.

Please Rangers, don’t sign Steve Ott

I feared that the Rangers would evaluate their loss to the Kings and say “we got to get bigger and meaner”. The early returns on their 2014 off-season seem to suggest that is exactly what Glen Sather’s conclusion was. The Rangers seemingly went out of their way to draft size over skill in the early rounds of the 2014 draft (though that’s not entirely certain). They saw fit...

Minnesota Wild: Say no to Steve Ott

#487318047 / gettyimages.comThe Wild need toughness, and I agree that they need to get tougher. However, let's hope the Wild don't sign this piece of dog excrement. I am not in favor of this move whatsoever.  Ott is one of those players that you would definitely hate, and don't ever want to see him on your team, either. Russo's Rants -- Here’s a look at how the...

The 'other guy' in Buffalo deal is 'a real good fit' for the Blues

ST. LOUIS -- Steve Ott couldn't hide the smile. Before the reporter could finish spitting out the question, the new St. Louis Blues forward heard the word "playoffs." He knew where the query was headed, referencing the move from last-place Buffalo to second-place St. Louis and an opportunity for a postseason run. Ott smiled. "I knew this was a special group and...

Steve Ott 'leaks' new third jerseys for Sabres

After attempting to troll the Twittersphere by “teasing” their new third jerseys for the upcoming season, the Buffalo Sabres fun has been ruined by one of their own. Sabres forward Steve Ott had some fun with his team’s official Twitter account on Wednesday, chastising the team for their insistence on hyping up the jersey.

Steve Ott tries licking Jeff Halpern's visor on faceoff (Video)

Buffalo Sabres center Steve Ott was caught trying to lick the visor of Montreal Canadiens center Jeff Halpern when the two were lined up for a faceoff in the third period of Thursday night's game at the First Niagara Center. This would seem to be a most unusual, and undoubtedly creepy, way to win a faceoff. Fortunately, Ott's tongue never made contact with Halpern'...
