Is Colorado’s rise a fair example of what might happen in Buffalo?

The Buffalo Sabres are frankly expected to be one of the worst teams in the league in 2014-15. It’s easy to see why: They’re a rebuilding club coming off of a season where they posted a 21-51-10 record. They could have added six wins last season and still finished in last place. For that matter, they could have scored 37 more goals and still ranked 30th offensively. The short...

Sabres’ Stewart to enter season with a chip on his shoulder

One could argue that power forwards are streaky by nature, yet Buffalo Sabres forward Chris Stewart still ranks as a stark example of “feast or famine.” The 26-year-old seems just as likely to suffer a penalty-minute-fueled meltdown as he is to score a tide-turning goal. The storyline almost seems tired by now: the big winger hopes to silence his critics and find the consistency...

Chris Stewart thinks the Buffalo Sabres are a playoff team

Report: Buffalo may try to trade Chris Stewart

Chris Stewart isn’t a member of the St. Louis Blues organization, but it’s always interesting seeing where former players end up. The Ryan Miller trade sent both Stewart and Jaroslav Halak to the Buffalo Sabres, but it looks like those were only brief stopping points on their trip. Halak was promptly traded to Washington before he even made an appearance for the Sabres, but was...

Follow Chris on Twitter The trade that everyone in Buffalo was talking about, at least until Pat LaFontaine resigned/was fired, was the deal that sent Ryan Miller and Steve Ott to St. Louis.

WATCH: Chris Stewart suffers nasty-looking knee injury

YouTube I’m not a doctor, but since I stayed at  Holiday Inn Express last night, I know that Chris Stewart’s knee shouldn’t have bent like this after Lightning goalie Anders Lindback took him out. Stewart was helped off the ice and wasn’t able to put weight on his right leg.  I’d guess he’ll be sidelined for some time with the hockey-famous LBI.  The hit/injury comes...

New Sabres Halak, Stewart prove to be quite witty

Jaroslav Halak and Chris Stewart are a couple of funny guys. Halak, acquired with Stewart in the trade that sent Ryan Miller and Steve Ott to St. Louis, was asked Sunday what awaits Miller with the Blues. “Probably less shots,” the Buffalo goaltender said. Stewart is a wide-bodied, 6-foot-2, 231-pounder. He stood out during his first practice with the Sabres, most of whom...
