You're being sarcastic, right? K, just makin sure.

If Montreal didn't have the worst lineup in the league, we woulda been screwed.

Great performance by Noronen to steal a win. The Habs really deserved to win last night, but that's the breaks. :D Although the Sabres goaltending has been inconsistant, it's encouraging to see them stealing games. Biron also stole the game vs Colorado. That's a really good sign for Buffalo's playoff hopes. They need to be able to get points in 10-15 games where they don't deserve any on the strength of their goaltending.

I hope Golisano and Quinn don't take Mike Robitaille too seriously. Robie's pushing Cujo like he's the 2nd coming of Dominik Hasek. He's not THAT good.

I really hope he gets the start again tonight. The kid deserves it. If Biron goes and plays well, Mika disappears for the next 5 games. How 'bout, for once, Mika plays well and keeps his job.

That makes me cringe to think about. Jesus no. Rent-a-players aren't gonna help this team in the long run...especially washed up, overpayed rent-a-players.

talinder has made 2 terrible decisions in this gamer thus far, and every game ive seen him in this year he has looked bad, i think we may have Mike Wilson #2 here..

The only contribution Wilson ever made to this franchise was being traded for Rhett--Darcy :bow:. He was a waste of space in every sense. I think it's way too early to put Tallinder in that category. His play last season was too promising. He'll play out of this...

imyourhuckleberry 11-08-2003 02:44 PM

I hope so, I remember before he was injury plagued last season he looked so promising, then the wheels fell off... I hope he can get his game back
