Miller and Vanek carrying 18 bums

The Great -

- Miller was outstanding

The Good -

- Pipes were on their side tonight
- Vanek basically creating the few chances they had through 2.5 periods and making them into go-ahead goals.

The Bad -

- D-zone play
- Losing the most dangerous man on the Islanders three or four times tonight.

The Ugly -

- They didn't deserve to win this at all. Back-to-back wins? Ha.
- 43-15 final shot count. Isles had 82 at net, including blocks and misses. Sabres had 37.

Good thing they won this one, because I suspect tomorrow night is going to be very ugly.

I don't know what to say anymore. Nice play from Miller and Vanek. It's almost getting sad to see Vanek own **** so much and then the rest of the team lolly-gag. It's a matter of equality I guess.

The team is still in a funk (either that or they're plain bad), but they've somehow managed to wins off the backs of Vanek and Miller. Here's to hoping tomorrow's not a complete mess...

what a boring game. I'm sick of watching this team. Get Ruff out of here and see what happens. Sick of hearing that? Tough.

Credit has to be given to coho. Vanek wasn't the only one creating chances. Coho also saved a goal.

Good:

RYAN MILLER, Thomas Vanek

And a couple of posts

Bad: just about everyone else (Ehrhoff get a pass for his goal).

Ugly: Foligno trying to destroy the boards and almost knocking himself out

I didn't totally hate Tyler Ennis the checking center. Which is more than I could say about his defensive game every other year. Perhaps this pays some long-term dividends...

Has Stafford even had a scoring chance yet this year? He's been okay along the boards but he's suppose to score goals and has 0.

Hockey Night Live talking about Myers and his comments -- being embarrassed, looking for the silver lining. Daneyko seemed almost apologetic for him.

Ugly: If you had someone who had no knowledge of the financial situation of both of these teams watch this game and then asked them which was the team that circumvents the salary floor and which was the one that has the billionaire owner who wants to spend to nearly the ceiling, I think their answers would very likely differ from reality.

A bunch of misfits and waiver pickups just massively outplayed 90% of this team.

May have been Ehrhoff's worst game defensively as a Sabre.

I realize he's still basically a rookie but has Foligno received a pass properly in any game this season? Stafford too for that matter.

I really liked what I saw from the Isles...speedy team and it highlighted how slow the Sabres are at times...

He has been brutal this year. IMO the disappointment of the season so far at forward.


I can live with Foligno having his moments, he's a rookie and thats what happens with rookies.

I can live with Ennis having his moments. He's in his first year at center and he has a lot to learn.

I can't live with the "leader" with the "A" on his jersey not producing much and looking listless. He's playing the same postion he has played in nearly 400 NHL games coming into this season. Does he really STILL need his hand held?


Ennis -----> 12gms 4g 5a 9pts +/- 0
Foligno ---> 12gms 1g 6a 7pts -4
Stafford --> 12gms 0g 4a 4pts -7

Soooooo tired of Stafford.

Spending to the cap is about star players. Theirs hit 3 posts, Vanek and Miller were outstanding. But ya everyone else blows and there's no excuse.

Funnies: Sabres had a larger percentage of players not show up tonight then Nabakovs save percentage.
