Tanks….But No Tanks

I want to talk a little bit about “fandom”, or lack thereof. This involves the current predicament of the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres, currently holding the worst record in the league. Futility is not new to Buffalo, having missed the playoffs in the three previous years. This, in a league, where over half of the teams qualify for a playoff position. You would think that the struggles...

Someone had to win this game. Someone had to come out of the ridiculous atmosphere in First Niagara Center with a pair of points in the standings.

Sabres to make splash with potential new coach hire; could Pegula sway Babcock to Buffalo?

Ted Nolan is most likely finished as head coach of the Buffalo Sabres after the final game of this season.

No Tanks from Ted Nolan

We can all agree that we can’t wait for this season to end so we can go back to actually cheering for the Sabres.
