Jame: The first one might border on Opinion, but I think it would be a huge stretch to refute it. That's my opinion on that fact

Why do people still put up the comment that Miller doesn't take responsibility when he does not play well? He's done just that a couple of times already this year.

That anyone could still agree with this (Jame) just proves an agenda, because the facts are there to refute it.

If he has, fine, but I've never seen it.

"Talk coming from the Sabres' dressing room recently suggested they play harder in front of Enroth, which was troubling. Miller said the other day that his teammates have his back, but it sure looked like the opposite Saturday.

"That said, the Sabres have taken to Enroth since last season. He's an easygoing kid with a friendly personality who doesn't let too much bother him. He's also been a very good player. He wasn't in top form Wednesday, but he also didn't get much support from his teammates. Ruff summoned Drew MacIntyre for mop-up duty without worrying about Enroth's psyche.........

Well ****. I should have have mentioned my thoughts i was having before this article. Cause it will sound like I'm agreeing with that Idiot.

Well, here i go.

I also noticed that while watching the Sabres play this season. They do seem to play better defensively in front of Enroth.

Miller hasn't look good at times this season. But god damn, the team in front of him wasn't doing him any favors with their ****** defensive play either.

I was just chalking it up to the team just mentally being more cautious in front of Enroth, "the backup", and just going full on stupid when Miller was in net, thinking he'd bail their ***** out.

Bucky's article insinuating that it's more premeditated than we first thought seems a bit too far fetched. I doubt it's true. However, if by some chance it is true, this team is in some serious trouble. Especially if you have players sabotaging the organization because of personal vendettas.

LOL. He just got trolled hard by T-pegs.

Like Terry said in his statement, he's a gas man. I doubt he's very intimidated by the clowns at TBN.

I love it how he thinks that the media dictates who someone is allowed to talk to, and when.

The ironic thing about the whole situation is that TBN needs Pegula -- not the other way around. Harrington is acting like TBN was doing Pegula a favor by trying to get him to talk.

It's my own fault really, but in the last month or so, I've let Bucky, Harrington, and Sullivan bother me way too much. These guys have zero impact on my life, and shouldn't.

I get my news from newspapers. I get my opinion from the the internet. Since those three aren't very good at either of those things, well, why should I care what they have to say?

Someone needs to get their hands on the results of his Myers-Briggs scoring and then we can really dig into his alleged psyche.

But I'm just a stupid hater with a dumb opinion
I'm not sure that I agree with Bucky, but I will say this. Miller is considered by many people "on the outside" (among fans, etc.) to be one of the leaders of the team - going back at least 2 or 3 seasons now.

Personally, I don't think that's the case. I never really got the vibe that the rest of the team views/viewed him that way. While he's always been willing to put himself out there as a leader, accept his share of blame for losses or shortcomings, and the goaltender position is somewhat unique in that he probably gets more support from his teammates in the media than other positions - I just don't see him as the guy who others look for guidance in between periods, pre-game talks, etc.

Complete and utter speculation on my part - but that's not any worse than what Bucky is getting paid for.

Also, Roy sucks.

Thanks, Chain!



Gleason and Harrington are both fools. This stuff is getting ridiculous.

It's like saying "Sorry, TBN, I'm too big to give exclusives to your rinky-dink rag"

So.....one week until the first column comes out condemning Pegula for putting this team together? For being evasive? For breathing?

I think it'll be something along the lines of "this is the same old team/same old Sabres.....Darcy has shown he can't put a team together under unlimited financial terms....Pegula is spineless for not firing Darcy and Lindy yet!"

Bucky is such a tool. It's painfully obvious from his spiteful little jabs that the players don't much care for him and thus never give him any decent information. For years, he has been the biggest hater and I honestly don't know why he doesn't move on to report for a new locale at this point.

I would challenge anyone, Bucky included, who says the Sabres lack heart, to go out and play 82 hockey games against monsters like Zdeno Chara; to go punch Milan Lucic and see what happens; to have your every move hyper-criticized by a bunch of fat, lazy wannabes who can't skate and probably suck at their jobs (as Bucky most assuredly does).

Just read some of the post game interviews. They were even put up on another message string not long ago. Trust me, that particular thought is an urban legend.

Miller has always been an emotional basket case. To include trips to the sports psychologist early in his career and an assortment of post-game tantrums. He has also always tossed up his arms after bad goals as if to blame his teammates on the ice. I don't see the problem here.

The team voted him the MVP last season. I do not see how they could be any clearer.

Except for the little fact that being the teams Most Valuable Player doesn't necessarily have anything to do with leadership.

In some cases it can and does - I'm not saying the two are mutually exclusive - but the team voting him MVP doesn't tell us anything about his leadership.
