System Of A Down The Middle (Foundations of a rebuild)

The Buffalo Sabres actually weren't bad this season, they were awful. After posting an abysmal 2013 campaign, the brass of the Sabres decided it was time to let go of some very familiar faces. Say what you will about the product on the ice this season, but it could actually be worse. What the Sabres lacked in on-ice talent, they certainly made up for with extremely savvy moves...

Justin Johnson wins 'David & Goliath' match-up against John Scott (VIDEO)

Not even three minutes into the Islanders-Sabres game Sunday, Justin Johnson took on the hockey giant John Scott. It appeared to be a mismatch — as Johnson's listed at 6-foot-1, and Scott's listed at 6-foot-8 — unless you know what a tough guy Johnson really is.Johnson, a 32-year-old rookie playing only the second NHL game of his career, just might have had something...

John Scott gets his just desserts

WATCH: John Scott gets knocked out by Justin Johnson

When referencing John Scott of the Buffalo Sabres, I choose to use quotation marks when calling him a “hockey player” because his level of hockey skill is an embarrassment even for the ‘goon’ label he’s tagged with. He’s basically paid solely to hunt, fight and injure opposing players, which is why what happened to him on Sunday afternoon is so great. During the first...

Sabres Defenseman Jake McCabe Crushes Dan Paille

Buffalo Sabres defenseman Jake McCabe stepped up on Boston Bruins forward Dan Paille and absolutely leveled him. Paille was clearly concussed on the play, seeing as he couldn’t stand on his own. The hit was clean, even though McCabe was given a five-minute major and a game, it’s just unfortunate that Paille was stumbling forward as he got hit. [YouTube] The post Sabres Defenseman...

Sabres' Christian Ehrhoff’s ear sliced open by puck

WARNING: The following photo may be graphic in nature. Any number of phrases could be used to describe how rough the Buffalo Sabres season has been.
