Zuccarello: Rangers Are My Club

As soon as news broke that the Rangers decided to sign Mats Zucarello to a one-year deal instead of a long term contract, many fans expressed their concern that the diminutive winger could leave the Blueshirts as an unrestricted free agent next season for a bigger pay day.

Buffalo Sabres starting to rebuild

Ryan Miller (Photo credit: weblogny.com) The 2013-2014 season will be a season the Buffalo Sabres would rather forget.  Throughout the course of the season, the team dismissed both Darcy Regier (former GM) and Ron Rolston (former coach) from their posts.

Can Nolan and Lafontaine Turn the Sabres Around?

I took a couple of days to sit back and read all the reactions to the firing of Darcy Regier and Ron Rolston. I attended the game on Tuesday night and I could tell right away there was tension in the air and something was not right. It is not out of the norm to see lack of emotion on the teams face (or Rolston’s for that matter), but something was different. I looked around the...

Saying hello to an old friend

This is going to be weird. Sure, it isn’t the first time a former Sabre will make his return to Buffalo.  Plenty of others have come and gone and come back again, usually to a smattering of boos, but not always.  Most recently, it was Jason Pominville (or so I’m told, yet somehow the Sabres failed to acknowledge this so I’m not sure it actually happened). Others in the...

Follow Brandon on Twitter @B_Schlag for more Sabres banter. The date was July 3, 2003. The Buffalo Sabres had recently placed the finishing touches on another disappointing season, one in which they would finish dead last in the Northeast for the second straight year.

Fan Poll: Would You Bring Back Briere

When Darcy Regier traded for Danny Briere in a deal with Phoenix at the 2003 deadline, it was the beginning of something special brewing for the Buffalo Sabres.

In the 2006-2007 season, Briere put up a career high in assists,...
