For obvious reasons, I only saw the end of the Blues/Kings game last night....but Wideman made some really nice defensive plays. Yeah, yeah, yeah... the detractors will say that Paetsch was and is still better, but Buffalo gave something away that could've been developed. The Sabres have a zillion forwards and keep Novotny, yet are thin are D and opt to let Wideman go free. Hmmm....I've let it go long ago, but felt like pointing this out.
Our D is shaping up pretty nice. Once Kalinin hit's his stride, it'll look pretty dam good!
Pretty nice in a buffalo sabres sorta way. not so nice when compared to the rest of the league. I can compare our defensemen to our group of forwards in the sense that we have a wealth of 2nd and 3rd line forwards. just like we have a bunch of 3/4 defensemen. the only problem is we dont have a Thomas Vanek to look forward to on the blueline. jeez we dont even have a drew stafford to look forward to... ahhh another comparison Lydman is the Briere of our defensemen.... STEAL!
