Adding Injury to Insult Edition

The Good -

Vanek's bankshot actually had them in the lead
Kaleta and Gerbe at least have a set each.

The Bad -

Team defense. These guys don't understand it.
Ehrhoff was Errorhoff on that 3rd Bruin goal.
Getting stone cold slaughtered at the dot.

The Ugly -

Lucic running Miller.
No response to Lucic's high hit on Miller.
Miller possibly injured.
Myers.
Sekera.
Gragnani.
Adam.

Nothing good about tonight.

NOTHING.

The Sabres didn't answer the bell when Miller was decked and did nothing about it the rest of the game.

When it was 4, 5 and 6 to 1 they should have retaliated since they did nothing at the time of the hit. Instead, they whimped out like a bunch of pansies.

Up against the Stanley Cup Champions and the Sabres showed NO HEART.

This team needs some grit, I don't see how we win a cup without some real bangers who can play physical but contribute offensively. Our defense is giving up way too many shots and the offense was just awful today. Barely any sustained pressure.

We need a defense that can actually play defense.

Well, I'll try to put the most positive spin on things, and then hightail it out of here before much of the stupid arrives.

GOOD:
-Well, if the last three seasons are any indicator, the team who loses the regular season series wins the division title. Welp, we're going to be the 2011-12 Northeast Division Champs!! Order the banner!
-When we got stomped by Boston in the first game against them last season, everyone was saying the same things. Then we won 4 of 5. We see these guys five more times.
-Toronto lost. They've come back to Earth.

BAD:
-Everything

UGLY:
-Everyone

The Sabres are a soft team and now everyone knows it.

Nothing else matters......

The Good:

My homemade chicken soup! Not only is it delicious and nutritious, but I was busy making it during the game and I missed most of the action in the 2nd and 3rd periods!

The Bad:

Getting your ass kicked and your lunch handed too you by the Stanley Cup champions.

The Ugly:

Having men in charge who can't seem to find big, mean, and skilled forwards that will help the team win a Cup. There's no way the Sabres get past the Caps, Bruins, or Pens with this team. They can't match their toughness.

per WGR, Miller made a statement after the game calling Lucic "a piece of ****" ...my sentiments exactly.

Well, Lucic does the dirty things that helps a team win.

Dale Hunter did that.

So did Claude Lemieux.

All winners.

The officiating was not good. Lucic should have been ejected - the only reason control was kept was because Buffalo didn't even try to do anything.

Good:
-Vanek
-Stafford
-Gerbe giving Thornton that huge grin
-Kaleta (Also showing some nice restraint coming off a suspension by not running Thomas on that drive to the net. Is our little Patty growing up?)

Bad:
-Doing nothing after that BS hit on Miller. Goose, Cody, somebody needs to step up there and go after Lucic at some point.
-Gragnani: WAY too many soft passes leading to turnovers. I'm so sick of this kid. We need Weber back.
-More fodder for the anti-Miller agenda.

Ugly:
-Bruins fans doing their best Philly impression and cheering on Lucic for that punk move.
-Team defense as a whole. That was pathetic.

And to think that some people wanted to bench mccormick once everyone got healthy. lol

for me part of the ugly is our reaction. Boston simply out numbers us with goon. like 2-1.

Eh. There are plenty of playoff studs who have rings that are class acts. And just as a note -- Dale has no ring.

With everyone mentioning the getting tough and retaliating issue, I have to say this...

The problem is and has been for some time that your asking the wrong team to go to war with a neanderthal team like Boston. We have one line that sees 8-10 minutes a game; and even then they're undersized for the task. Our team's core isn't built to manhandle anybody; it was built for speed and skill.(whether the team has that is debatable, but that's for another topic)

I laughed and yelled at Rob Ray when he said it's good for the Sabres to have games like this.

Umm, no it's not. Cause as usual, a couple minutes later, the Sabres turned into a turnover machine. They play scared when getting knocked around, and out comes the puck. Even our 6'8'' defensemen plays scared and stupid.

You need a complete overhaul of the roster if you want to see this team be aggressive and in your face. They can't just rely on Kaleta running around getting his head chopped off every night.

Getting whooped and beaten down like this usually turns the Sabres into mental midgets for a few games. I have a bad feeling about this upcoming week after tonight. Lets hope this team can put it behind them and go into Montreal and win.

it's the same old song and dance isn't it? It's so frustrating when teams takes runs at your best players and nothing is done about it. It'll probably keep happening too until the Sabres put a stop to it.

Regardless, if the Sabres were down 1 to 0 tonight, and Gaustad or someone ran Thomas, and the game turned around and we won 6-2, we'd all be singing that players praises for igniting the team.

I'd rather win the Stanley Cup with a bunch of dirty players than continually lose with a bunch of class acts.

I can guarantee you that if it were exactly reversed that I would be criticizing Gaustad (or whoever).

I really think that our teams issues started before the miller hit. boston found a way to contain vanek - adam - pominville. roy and stafford were out matched.

I also found it funny that lindy broke up gerbe gaustad kaleta.
