It was a year ago that Craig MacTavish left his post as the Edmonton Oilers’ vice-president of hockey operations to supplant Steve Tambellini as the team’s general manager. There was talk then of bold moves and the need for more complimentary pieces; now, there’s a defence that is still in need of a renovation and some fixes needed up front.

The forward, who had his contract terminated by the Sabres on Tuesday, signed with Lulea of the Swedish elite league Wednesday. He’s packing up in Buffalo before heading back to his homeland. The Sabres made the easy decision to get rid of Omark after he failed to...

Kevin Freiheit: John Scott scored a goal

We went from talking about Linus Omark pooping to John Scott scoring a goal in a matter of a few hours. What a day of headlines. Scott scored his 2nd career NHL goal, and first as a Sabre. His other was during the 2009-10 season when he was playing for Minnesota. In 200 games, he has six points (2 goals, 4 assists). John Scott's first goal as a Sabre: With that...

Kevin Freiheit: What is Moulson worth?

Happy Friday, everyone. You may be seeing John Scott on the power play tonight vs. Toronto. You read that correctly. It's not exactly what I was hoping for, but he's big enough to stand in front of the net, so maybe a puck will bounce off of him and into the goal. Linus Omark is back in the lineup for his 2nd game as a Sabre. He'd like his name to be pronounced...
