Buffalo, in my eyes, has a solid chance to go deep this year.

I like the way our team looks

I absolutley hate our goaltending. Its been ****ing forever since we had a good one.

This is a playoff team with a goalie. Same thing as every year.

I'm kinda worried about Scrivens starting (if it's him). the Vanek-Hodgson-Pominville line looks terrible, and Ott is a the perfect fit for this team.

Well, considering Scrivens is a better goalie than Reimer....

I am not as worried as some of you are..

Sabres games are always close, we've beat them at home 5 straight times and they've never really blown us out and vice versa.

Plus...I am sorry but the Flyers are just a better version of Ron Wilson's Leafs. Extremely talented offense but that defense leaves a lot to ask.

If Kimmo Timonen is your #1D, you have some problems.

Our D with Carlyle looked solid. Scrivens didn't even have to make many stops against Montreal...he was just very nervous. Expect him to shake off the nerves and the Leafs D to continue playing well.

I've a lot of faith in this group. They know it's the defense that will ultimately determine if we're picking top 5 or going to the playoffs.

Vanek was a beast last night. They are one of the only teams that are almost as weak at C as we are though. If Kessel and Lupul can out play Vanek and Pominville, and our goalie plays OK, then we have a chance.

@DavidAlter590: No changes in the lineup, all of the line rushes the same at morning skate, Scrivens in goal.

Montreal offense was horrible, Scrivens didn't have to do much. The Sabres defense is their only weak area. Myers is sloppy at times, and Erhoff isn't what he used to be back with the Sharks. Regher is slower and slower, and well Leopold/Sulzer/Sekera aren't what you could do best. The Leafs should go after Robin Lehner.

Tough to tell how good the defence was, Montreal was horrible.

Cant imagine Orr keeps Foligno in check, the guy is a punching bag.

I could really see this game going to OT
