Solve pansy issue and acquire Colton Orr

If the Sabres want help look up the road to Toronto..Orr is sitting and he smoked Lucic last season and can handle any Bruin

Burke likes tough players. Not sure why he'd trade Orr in the division. With that said, yeah, an enforcer would be nice to have.

the sabres don't have a roster spot for a guy who will have more penalty minutes than ice time

I like this idea. Having Orr available on the bench is a natural deterrent. The game last night reminded me of how Sedin and canucks were man handled by bruins. The refs didn't call this and the rest of the team stood around as marchand gave sedin a facial. This team is talented and very much like the Canucks but does not have the edge to deal with Boston. That is the Boston style and the Sabres will face this a number of times this year and in the playoffs eventually.

You know, I wouldn't mind that, actually. We wouldn't have to play him every night or anything - he would just be nice to have.

Acquiring one tough guy isn't going to transform your team, especially when you have players named Roy, Stafford, Pominville, Gaustad, Ennis, Ellis, among forwards, (although it is a start).

If they want to transform the culture of the team, they need someone with some sack in the top 6 forwards and a defenseman who has no issue throwing down. It's the same old Sabres -- two or three guys who play a physical game and the rest are fancy dans out for a couples skate.

This. We don't have to waste a roster spot carrying a guy like Orr who is otherwise useless. The guys who are already here have to find their balls and step up in that situation.

What's Godard up too these days? Or Cote? Actually, nevermind Cote that dude is is like Frankenstein. Insanely tough, as fearless a man as I've ever seen, but he's very much damaged. Godard could probably be signed for a 2-way deal if he's out there.

I see stuff like that, and I imagine how I would feel as a Nucks fan, and then a flower literally blooms from my underwear. Seriously, I need too see a doctor because that can't be healthy.

Exactly. The Bruins are a tough team because they have these type of players balanced across forward and defensive lines. The Sabres aren't going to get there by adding 1 guy that averages 3:00 TOI and 5:00 PIM.

They need one player with the edge and willingness in the top 6, but could realistically use 2.

The Bruins are a tough team because that's the way they play as a team. It has little to do with the actual players and more with their philosophy as a team. That gif up above is Brad Marchand. You really think 5'9", 180 pound Marchand is any kind of tough player on his own? The Bruins only have maybe 3-4 actually tough players on their roster, the same as most other teams in the league. The difference is most of their roster is willing to muck it up when needed. It's a team philosophy more than it is their players.

I'll take an enforcer for now, until we trade for Iginla.

That's awesome. It hadn't occurred to me that this might not be a personality trait and that it was just a set of instructions. I can't wait for someone to simply tell Sekera, Gragnani, Leopold, Myers, Roy, Pominville, Stafford, Ennis, Hecht, Boyes, Leino, and Adam to be tough.

Buffalo ranked 22 in the league with 30 fighting majors last season. The Bruins tied for 2nd with 71. The difference, they've got several guys that are ready and willing to drop the gloves throughout their lines. Lucic, Campbell, Horton, McQuaid, and Thornton all fought 7+ times last year (only McCormick fought more than 7 times last year for Buffalo). That paves the way for guys like Chara, Marchand, and Boychuk to play their game.

Though I do not want to move him (especially in-division), Matt Carkner might be available.

Let's hope that Pegula's and Regier's trade deadline targets are just that - guys like Doan, Iginla or Morrow.
