Your 2015 guide to Sabres alumni (and other Buffalo connections) in the playoffs by @mtracz

The 2014-15 NHL regular season has mercifully concluded.   Sabres fans have endured a long, painful trip over the rainbow and landed in a pot of gold that contains either Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel.  The tank is over at long last, and instead of arguing about the ethics of losing, we can commence debating who’s the goalie of the future, how good Evander Kane will look...

Winnipeg Jets face tall task in Ducks

If anyone was to predict that the Winnipeg Jets would make the playoffs before the season started, I may have laughed at them or accused them of lying.

Kane seeks chance for a fresh start with Buffalo Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Hard-hitting forward Evander Kane says he had a difficult time adjusting to playing in what he called ''a fishbowl'' of a hockey-mad city like Winnipeg, and felt a change of scenery was long overdue. The 2009 first-round draft pick gets the opportunity to enjoy a ''fresh start'' - a phrase Kane repeated several times during his introductory news conference Saturday...

Evander Kane trade a quantity-for-quality move for Sabres

Though there are a plethora of issues plaguing the Sabres as currently constituted, one thing has been painfully absent over the last two seasons and beyond. Buffalo has lacked a true winger with skating and goal-scoring ability to change the dynamic of the team’s offense. No slight on Thomas Vanek, but he doesn’t fit that […] The post Evander Kane trade a quantity-for-quality...

   The Buffalo Sabres have traded to get Evander Kane.  I’ve been waiting for that to sink in completely and it just refuses to.  In the last few years, we’ve seen a lot of large trades that were, to one extent or another, fait accompli, and rumors (or maybe just hopes) of blockbuster trades that never came to fruitions.
