NHL Draft Lottery rules punish bad teams instead of rewarding them

Just when Buffalo Sabres fans thought the future looked pretty good, the NHL had to step in and ruin it. The new changes to the NHL’s draft lottery system has left general manager Tim Murray a bit dissatisfied with the results. “You know who you’re affecting, that’s not fair,” said Murray. After receiving approval by the NHLPA, the NHL announced how the system will work...

NHL Trade Rumors: Tyler Myers to Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings have major interest in acquiring Tyler Myers from the Buffalo Sabres. Myers has been on the chopping block since the 2014 NHL Trade Deadline. In addition, the Red Wings looked at defenseman Matt Niskanen of the Pittsburgh Penguins and came to the conclusion he is going to demand too much money as a free agent. Myers is the better option. He is only 24 years old and

Sabres In July

  With all of the excitement buzzing around the current playoffs, it's tough to imagine Sabres brass isn't itching to get back into the second season. While it is true that I don't believe the Sabres will be back in the playoffs before the 2015-2016 season, there are undoubtedly a number of moves the Sabres can make this summer that will only enhance their chances...

Don’t Give Up On Tyler Myers Just Yet

I know this isn't the most popular opinion in town, but I'm a bit uncomfortable with shipping Tyler Myers out of Buffalo without seeing further development with the new Sabres regime. Disclaimer: If an offer involving Evander Kane or Ryan Nugent-Hopkins lands on Tim Murray's desk, all bets are off and you do that deal in a heartbeat.  But no way on God's green...

Patrice Bergeron Shows Off Rare Pugilistic Side in Surprising Fight With Buffalo’s Tyler Myers

BOSTON — Patrice Bergeron is known as one of the NHL’s most complete players, but his all-around skill set isn’t often advertised with a pugilistic component. However, as he’s shown very infrequently, he can throw (and take) a punch or two.

Tyler Myers got off to another slow start this season.  He currently sits tied for 688th in the NHL in plus/minus at -8, but the majority of that damage was done in the first 5 games when he was -7.  Easy math will tell you that he has played better since that point, going only -1 in the last 14 games.  We’re used to seeing this out of the big defenseman.  Every year...

LA Kings Matt Frattin fights Tyler Myers after a legal hit

This is one element that I don't like about the NHL. Whenever someone is hit with a nice crisp, hard, legal bone jarring check, there has to be a fight. This doesn’t even appear to be that hard of a check. Whatever happened to taking a number and hitting them later in the game? It’s called taking the license plate of the truck that hit you.  I think this is one instance...
