That was the game Leino looked like a ****ing hockey player!! (the VAN game)...with the two early goals. I also remember being aggravated by Kassian's assist followed up with a goal.

We won, though (duh?) and I'd like to be able to say in three years that we won the CoHo/BZK swap

March 23 v the Rangers has been my favorite. 4-1 FES had 3 of um. Good goaltending battle early then Stafford and Ennis took over. They potted pucks against both the Rangers top pairings. Great game beginning to end.

The full Leafs game is available on YouTube. On my cell or I'd post a link. Leafs announcers which I like because you can listen to the life drain from their voices as the Sabre steadily make the comeback.

Was it on Hockey Night in Canada? I love listening to the dissappointment in Craig Simpson's voice.

Just went back and re-watched that game this morning. Things I noticed/liked: 1) Hodgson was actually very good on the PK in that game. He got his stick in a lot of passing lanes, and hustled back to create a couple SH chances. 2) Christian Ehrhoff is pretty darn good in his own end..Probably saved Buffalo 2 goals -- the first checking Gaborik on what would've been a tap-in and the second getting his skate to the post to make a save when Miller was out of the net. 3) Marcus Foligno is a beast on the backcheck. Had 2 assists both from breaking up plays and then finding Ennis streaking with Staff. 4) Tropp made himself really noticeable that game/was creating a good amount of quality chances.

All-around, just a good game for Buffalo. Hope to see a bunch more like that in 12-13.

Yes, they were sheltered from defensive stalwart Mirian Gaborik and got easy ice time against fringe NHLers like Staal, Girardi, Callahan, and Boyle.

The first full season for the Buffalo Sabres with owner Terry Pegula began with high expectations after a busy offseason. A concussion for goaltender Ryan Miller didn't help, but several players had subpar offensive seasons and a team that was supposed to be among the elite in the Eastern Conference struggled for much of the campaign.

There was a late surge, and the Sabres nearly squeaked into the Stanley Cup Playoffs (they finished in ninth place, three points from eighth). But Buffalo was one of the biggest disappointments in 2011-12, and general manager Darcy Regier made some alterations this offseason.
Quote:
Here's what the Sabres' lineup could look like on opening night:

Forwards
Thomas Vanek - Cody Hodgson - Jason Pominville
Marcus Foligno - Tyler Ennis - Drew Stafford
Nathan Gerbe - Steve Ott - Ville Leino
Corey Tropp - Matt Ellis - Cody McCormick

John Scott

Defensemen
Jordan Leopold - Tyler Myers
Christian Ehrhoff - Robyn Regehr
Andrej Sekera - Mike Weber

Adam Pardy

Goaltenders
Ryan Miller
Jhonas Enroth
Quote:
Luke Adam was centering the "top" line early last season before being demoted; he could work his way back into a top-nine role with a strong camp. Much was made of the Scott addition, but it is hard to see him playing regularly without some injuries given the depth both up front and on the blue line.
Quote:
Buffalo has eight defensemen on one-way contracts plus promising Brayden McNabb and T.J. Brennan. Alexander Sulzer could end up in a battle with Pardy for a roster spot, especially if the team keeps a traditional 13th forward.
Quote:
Under-valued: Tyler Ennis - Finished last season with 15 goals and 34 points in just 48 games and came on extremely strong at end of season with eight goals and 19 points in final 14 contests -- could break out with over 60 points.
Quote:
Over-valued: Jason Pominville - Posted just 52 points in 2010-11 before erupting for 30 goals and 73 points last season. Despite solid point production and shot total (235 SOG), his minus-7 and 12 PIMs didn't help fantasy owners.
Quote:
Sleeper: Cody Hodgson - Appeared to have a bright future with Canucks, but was stunningly traded to Buffalo where he struggled with just eight points and a minus-7 in 20 games. Expect a major bump in production as he'll likely start the season as the Sabres' No. 1 center.
