Really guys??? 10 games and you're ready to stick a fork in them? We've had our two highest paid players step up and deserve their money, decent record, couple new guys and our franchise dman being taught how to play the game differently. And we still have a playoff record.

The only thing I'm not happy with is good teams know how to finish teams out. When you're up by two goals and have the D we have, we shouldn't loose, never not at least get a point.

Shoot, Roy, Hecht, Ennis and our big splash Leino have done squat and we're still doing ok. Still missing that one piece but the core is solid and I still believe we'll at least be in the ecf.

We bottomed out at 8-9-0, too, IIRC. Those two disasters against Ottawa took place after they were 6-4-0 (the 10-4 and 6-1 games)

I was gonna bring that up but figured the fact that their records were identical was enough, this whole overreacting thing is crazy right now.

Yep. Lindy is coaching these guys down to intentionally lose games.

Do you people even think before you say this stuff?

I will say it's a fair assessment this squad has had only one game where it put together 3 periods of solid dominating hockey. Even last year's 2nd-half-of-season push didn't have a lot of dominate-all-3-period-games. Is it unrealistic to expect BUF does that more than 10% of the games? i.e., outplay the opponent for 3 straight periods? I don't know... Doesn't seem that farfetched to wish for that more often. But "panic"? Not me.

They've played like a team with a lot of raw talent trying to sort things out.

The only things that worry me a little bit are Ruff and Miller. But neither one is going to put those fears to rest until the playoffs anyway.

I'll take the close to "same old", slightly improved. It got them to the playoffs last year and an OT goal from moving onto the 2nd round.

I'll start to worry when they regress over a long period. Not improve from the previous year over a small sample size.

They're gonna put it together. They've got too many talented guys who are passengers right now, but certainly won't remain so for long. Patch a few things up here and there, late breakdowns and such, and this team is 8-2 right now. With Boston down so far so fast, I'll say they probably win the division.

If you ignore/block a user does it block out the thread the user created as well, or just his posts in the thread?
