Anyone else notice Ruhwedel is a top #4 defenseman on a ECF team? Murray let this guy walk for nothing why exactly?

He's only on their squad because of injuries period

Aside from that he was a decent dman in rochester who had no shot in Buffalo and left when he had his chance for a shot...which he got given injuries to his current team.

He's not a bad player but it's like sayin Janik was a top 4dman for a Sabres playoff team...its all relative.

Ruhwedel only played so much tonight because Schultz got injured after playing 3 minutes. It's also only his fourth game of the playoffs. He was a scratch before Daley got injured.

Ruhwedel was also a free agent who got to go wherever he wanted.

And the truth will set you free. Well, for some.

Thank you.

I'm glad he's looked "serviceable". Good for him. Good guy to root for.

He was a FA because Murray let him walk knowing we have a huge hole but no point dwelling on the past.

I thought after game 1 that it seemed like I heard his name as much as ek, then I saw the stats and he played 16 minutes.

As to the Murray thing, he definitely had a strong opinion on what an NHL damn should look like, and I think it was too narrow for his own good.

He was a free agent because he sucked too much to get the additional 39 NHL games required to keep him an RFA

Ruhwedel is bad. I was probably the biggest Murray hater here and even I am not going to criticize Murray for losing Chad Ruhwedel. Do you even remember him while he was here? He was awful. He is only playing due to injury, not because of skill or merit. He played 34 games this past year due to Letang and others being hurt. He only played 33 games in Buffalo over FOUR years even though our D was bad because quite frankly he was terrible. Chad Ruhwedel wouldn't have helped this team. He is just another version of Casey Nelson, college UFA signed and given a few games and will bounce around for a few years before moving on.

Looks like he is about as good at fashion as he was at hockey.

I don't feel bad for him. I'd gladly sit through a year of criticism for the money he was making (and is STILL making) for doing nothing.

I never thought I'd say this, but we have now found something Leino is worse at than playing center.

In addition to the Top Prospects public event and the Stanley Cup® appearance, fans will experience the following -

MUSEUM TRUCK - The main attraction is a 53-foot museum truck with an innovative interior featuring more than 1,000 square feet of interactive digital displays, original video content, one-of-a-kind historical memorabilia, unique photo moments and a social media wall. Customized to each market, the Museum Truck will showcase the history of the NHL and Buffalo Sabres.

VIDEO TRUCK - A second 53-foot trailer with a giant video screen will feature team highlights, all-access programming, and as well as a pop-out stage for special appearances.

THE "RINK" - A pop-up ball hockey rink will give youth hockey players a chance to shine.

CLEAR THE ICE ZAMBONI® VR EXPERIENCE - This never-before-seen VR experience allows fans to compete against each other in a race to resurface the ice. Fans will take a seat in a mini Zamboni® ice resurfacer and feel their seat rumble before being tasked with creating the perfect sheet of ice.

RECYCLE THE GAME - A special net will be on-site for fans to donate gently used hockey equipment. The equipment will be up-cycled back into the community, continuing the League-wide commitment to improve hockey's environmental footprint while supporting youth hockey.

As part of Hockey Is For Everyone™, the League is making a $5,000 grant in all 31 NHL markets at the NHL Centennial Fan Arena. In partnership with the Club, this grant will be invested into the community going toward youth hockey organizations that celebrate diversity. In Buffalo, the grant will be donated to Hasek's Heroes, a nonprofit founded by 100 Greatest NHL Player and Hockey Hall of Famer Dominik Hasek. Since 2001, the organization has been providing ice time, coaching, and equipment to thousands of economically underprivileged children in Buffalo.

Fans planning to attend can RSVP at NHL.com/FanArena.
The RSVP program provides event reminder notifications including updates on dates, times, locations, events, special appearances and more.

This Date In History - May 20 - NHL.com - https://www.nhl.com/news/this-date-i...20/c-280703870

1975 - The Buffalo Sabres overcome the Philadelphia Flyers and the fog in a 5-4 overtime victory in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final.

A hot, humid evening in Buffalo combines with a non-air conditioned Memorial Auditorium to slow things down.
Play is interrupted five times during regulation. Sabres defenseman Bill Hajt scores midway through the third period to tie the game 4-4.
The game is interrupted seven times during overtime so players and rink attendants can skate around and try to dissipate the fog.

Despite the conditions, neither team is able to score until Buffalo's Rene Robert beats Bernie Parent at 18:29 to give the Sabres the victory.
"I saw Robert's shot too late for me to come out and stop it," Parent said. "I'm surprised the overtime took so long. It was hard to see the puck from the red line.
If three men came down and one made a good pass from the red line, you couldn't see the puck. A good shot from the red line could have won it."
