Why is Ray using the amount of games they've played as an excuse? All of the teams are facing the same hardships in regard to scheduling.

Not a bad idea. I wouldn't hate a Porter for Foligno swap. A little thank you gift to Porter for helping the young guys.

I'm sick of hearing about how many games we've played in how many days. Every team in the league is dealing with this same crap.
Face it Rayzor, we ****ing suck

Nostalgia is why Ruff and Regier still have a job.
Talk about in over his head! That post is absurd.

Don't listen then. Simple. Your little whining about RJ to anyone on the planet doesn't change the fact that he is staying until HE wants out. He is still better than over half the PxP guys currently employed by an NHL club.

Hey, people wanted a more physical team. They got one.'and they suck even more than past iterations, and are even less entertaining if you can imagine that!

To add to your point we don't lose many fights either.

Yet oddly enough we don't seem more physical.

I never said the guy was getting fired. People whine about Ruff and Regier every single day for the same reasons, they believe they are incompetent at their jobs. Like RJ is now. I get it, he's the voice of the Sabres, but he's not a good commentator anymore. Just me?

Somehow this is still Derek Roy's fault.

The difference is RJ isn't incompetent. He's not as good as he used to be and he's definitely screwing up names and what not nowadays, but he still follows the play well and actually announces the game instead of just talking about random crap like most other announcers.

Is the announcer really that big a deal? Nobody would care if the team wasn't hot garbage.

It's all that sudafed he took when he was playing.

Buffalo takes little trips to Toronto, Ottawa, Boston, New York.
Chicago's flying all over the west and have had only two home games and they're 10-0-2.

Exactly. If Buffalo was playing like Chicago, no one would care about RJ or Ray, or anyone else on the broadcast.

A soft team plus Ott and Scott does not = a physical team.

We are the same incredibly soft team we have been, with a few new additions in the right direction. That's all.

Oh I'd still want Ray gone. He's dreadful. And that's being complimentary.

ok sorry for trolling. But you must understand i wake up in the morning 1.00 am and will look that game, and than i see so sick uninspired players on Ice.
And vanek -yes in moment he is first in League Goals and Points- but he have so variety performances. One Game he is best and the other GAmes he is so "dead" on ice, so much puck losses and unenthusiastic mimic........
