No one's mad at Bucky because we think he's ravaging a perfectly good team with his ideas. It's that he seems to actually be trying to make the team worse and it's just dumb. Trade Roy, our best shutdown d-man, and a 1st rounder for a slightly bigger, more expensive version of Roy? Trade Ryan ****ing Miller, Olympic MVP, for an average 30-something year old winger?! I don't think there are many -- if any -- Sabres fans that don't want a bit of a shake-up. It's just that we want to the team to compete for a cup, not Nathan MacKinnon.

His role on national teams, his leadership abilities on a pretty young Avalanche team, his learning under one of the best captains in league history...

I think that's mostly speculative.

The third line center getting pushed out by younger, more talented centers. He is still influential in the locker room and has the potential to score 70pnts in a season. Wait which expendable center was I talking about again?

If I was his editor, and I knew hockey, I'd go to my boss and recommend this ****** gets the axe.

Awful, awful, awful journalism.

It's always nice to get reminders that while we may not be entirely happy with how the front office works, it could be much, much, much worse.

That's an amateurish take on attempting to make the team better. What a lot of poorly-thought out acquisitions.... wow.

It's also a reminder that those of us who won't pay for a digital subscription to The Buffalo News this fall won't be missing out on anything insightful or informative.

Wow.

My expectations for Sucky G are pretty low. And this column didn't even meet them.

I have to no problem with his saying that he'd replace Ruff if he were GM.

But, everything after that was pretty putrid.

Roy, Sekera, 1st for Statsny? Who Sucky himself admits as not playing up to his contract recently.



Miller for Malone after saying that TB addressed their goalie issue with Lindback.



Even thinking about dealing away BOTH 1sts.



The best part of the article were the Sports Editor for a Day tweets flying around yesterday.

What's funny about this to me is how Bucky's one of the people who goes on and on about how Roy and the other members of this core haven't won anything. Then he writes an article arguing that the Sabres should go out and trade for a guy who hasn't helped his team win anything either. That's without even mentioning the massive overpayment he'd be making to get him.

The moves he'd want to make are simply him wanting to get rid of guys he doesn't like regardless of whatever else he has to give up to make that happen. The roster he listed would be no closer to a cup than the roster the Sabres have currently. If the Sabres are trading away both of their firsts it better be to bring a stud center, or to trade up and draft a potential stud center.
