Gameday: Sabres @ Oilers (9pm) 10/16
 
Edmonton is coming off consecutive shutouts just like the sabres did so look for them to be eager to play hard, lets hope buffalo can match the intensity level. I also look for a good game from Pittis who played with Edmonton last season and the season before.

3-2 oilers win

Hyped 10-16-2003 11:54 AM

I posted this on the Oilers board as well, but I'll do the same here. I'm bettin' on Laraque and Peters going at it less than 5 minutes into the game. If that happens, I predict a 3-2 win for the Coilers. If not, then the Sabres win the squeaker 3-2 in a snoozefest...

In the fine Sabre tradition of facing backups, I expect Ty Conklin to get the start and look all world. 3-1 Oil.

Sweet.. I caught Ty Conklin in some Bulldog games a while back.. I like him.. although he played awful the one night and was pulled after the first period.. lol.. I like our chances.. j/k..

Anyways, I just hope the Sabres come out flying and play the way they are capable of playing..

Too bad I'm going to miss the first half of the game.. damn volleyball game.. can anyone take a wild guess as to what my # is? Haha..

GO SABRES!!

For those of us unable to watch the game tonite, how was the Peters/Laraque tilt in the first period?

Peters lost his balance and basically got beat over the head.


and is it just me or does Rick Jeanerate look like he got ran over by a truck, his hair is all messy, he's not wearing his usual suite and suspenders, its odd to see.

Ew. Anyone else notice Campbell get smoked and then Fitzpatrick get smoked right after him in the middle of the 1st? Either Edmonton is just quick or these guys need to get their legs moving. I'm liking what I see in Drury and Max so far tonite. As well as Mair and Pyatt. Pyatt shaking off that check behind the net and then Mair blasting Burgeron was pretty pleasing.

imyourhuckleberry 10-16-2003 05:40 PM

Talinder looks terrible to me. I think Campbell and fitzpatrick look good, broke up 2-1's and have generated some offense. Biron looks like he was snoozing on those last two goals. Even if the defense makes a mistake its up to Biron, I have no confidence with him in net. :mad:

KillToronto 10-16-2003 05:42 PM

I'm sorry but Campbell sucks. He's getting pushed around like a little girl and he's gotten burned so many times tonite it's sickening. This kid looks like he's not even trying. I don't know what pill Zhitnik took before the game but he looks like he's braindead tonite. He almost tipped the puck out of mid-air into the net after it was clearly going wide, then he skates behind the net instead of covering Hemsky who was left wide open to score. The defense looks despicable tonite. Buffalo probably has the weakest, slowest, girliest defense in the league. Do any of these guys have balls? None of them can check and sure as Hell can't clear the front of the net. If I was Biron, I would been wishing I was the one sent down to Rochester instead of Miller.

eSabre 10-16-2003 06:15 PM

Sorry I didn't come through with a OGT, guys. Life's been busy lately... doesn't look like they're gonna win anyways... down 3-1 in the 3rd...

Prospect Prophet 10-16-2003 06:42 PM

Were in a desperate situation for a tough physical d-man, there's no doubt about it!!

ain't that the damn truth. these guys are a bunch of girls

Even though they lost, I was very impressed with Afinogenov tonight. He seems to be skating just as fast, but more "under control" these days, and he could have a decent year.

Also, I don't see why people are ripping on Campbell...he's one of the most creative defenseman I've seen in awhile, and christ he's fast.

Ruff playing Briere and Delmore on the point in the PP is a baaaad idea. I have a feeling we're going to have about 20 more SHG's scored on us if he doesn't fix this. It's like going from 2 d-men to 1/2 a d-man.

imyourhuckleberry 10-17-2003 02:51 AM

Afinogenov was skating great last night but I have a big problem with him not using everyone on the ice. He can skate with the puck for a while but then he either shoots it wide and turns it over or tries passing but through a crowd of people and turns it over.

Campbell I thought played fine, Zhitnik and Mckee had bad games though.

CelticSabre 10-17-2003 03:19 AM

Wow I just watched the replays of the game last nite and I see same old Biron in there lettin in those crap goals at the worst possible time. Im not trying to put all the lose on him because our defense did look terrible but Hemsky's goal he was down and droppped his shoulder. Torres goal was just ridiculous...how does an n.h.l goalie let in crap like that!!!

Allright I guess its on to number 3

Lets Go Norenon

Takeo 10-17-2003 03:32 AM

It's pretty poor that it's only been 4 games, and we're already having to deal with the same mediocrity, inconsistency, and passiveness that's plagued this team for the last couple seasons. Don't know about you, but I can't stomach this garbage for 78 more games. How quickly hopes crumble.

imyourhuckleberry 10-17-2003 06:04 AM

Even Ruff agrees and is not happy with Birons effort...


"The Oilers outworked Sabres defenseman Henrik Tallinder for the puck and moved it to Torres in the low slot, where Briere left him unattended. Torres' quick shot got between Biron's left skate and the right post.

Ruff wasn't happy with the goal.

"Standing straight up, bad angle," Ruff said. "We can't have that goal go in at that point in the game. That was a killer for us. "


from the buffalo news.

This game was pathetic.Maybe we could acquire a guy like Norstrom or Mezei or Kloucek.I think Kloucek could be gotten very cheaply.

YES. BRING IN KLOUCEK!

I've wanted this guy on the Sabres for 3 years now...he's exactly what we need.
