Random thoughts:

The Sabres should have used fresher legs for this one. Tropp should have gotten more ice time and Foligno should have been used.

Weber is too slow for the NHL.

Apparently, playing center in Lindy Ruff's system is the hardest thing to do that is humanly possible. Hodgson was especially awful.

Myers was great until late in the 2nd when he started to look gassed.

Roy was not great, he wasn't Roy-like. Pomminville and Vanek were not good enough either, and as a line they don't play very inspired at all. These guys are the teams most highly paid, most talented, and most coveted players. They are the "core" that is supposed to lead the charge. Instead they made risky thoughtless plays and provided each other with zero puck support. They cost the team 2 points for sure.

I like Thorburn, he stepped right around Regher and scored a sweet goal. That stung, but I was happy for him a little bit.

Great road trip. But this team needs a #1 line, and a good one.

I really like Evander Kane. Rock solid player, good in every zone.
