We have REALLY bad BFS. Now we're complaining about announcers, warm up music, etc.

Friday night at the game I had a lady who was working the concession stand who forgot to hand me my beer. I had to ask her. Freakin' Sabres!

I'm starting to like the Trolleo nickname someone suggested

Yeah, we should all long for the days of Dominik Hasek. He was a rock of emotional stability.

Another invisible performance from him. Amerks, please
Seriously? I wonder if we're watching the same games. I like his game recently. He's also one of the only real men on the team. Notice how nobody even touched him after he bowled over Fleury.

Hodgson, miller, foligno, Ennis, ott, the 4th line, myers, ehrhoff, and regher all looked solid to me.

Because he was so blatantly pushed into the goaltender that it would've looked borderline ridiculous for them to react as if it were intentional.

And yeah, we're definitely watching two different teams/games if you're okay with calling Foligno's play this year "manly"....

FAR FROM IT. At least to date. Last year he looked manly. This year he doesn't.

I think Foligno has played well this year, in fact I would say he is playing just fine considering he hasn't played a full season of games combined in his career. He is near the bottom of the list of players that I am worried about on this team. He had a stretch there where he wasn't playing the body as well as last year, but he has recently been going hard to the net, and causing problems around the net for the opposition which is EXACTLY his role on this team.

Guy is still young, and I can see why you think his play is awful Jbuds, because, he is missing that explosiveness in his checking. This year he seems to just roll off the guy and try and play the puck with positioning, where last year he was going through guys and then grabbing the puck(another reason why FES played well last year, compared to this year).

It appears as though Lindy is in process of killing him.

Foligno has looked a lot better the last few games but he has been one of only a few forwards this year to consistently bring a solid work ethic every night. One thing I have noticed with him tho is his shotty hands compared to last year. He has missed a few sure goals and just seems to be fighting the puck on a regular basis, anyone else notice this?

His hands were never great to begin with. If you look at his goals from last season it's not like he looked like Kassian or Lucic. He shot a statistically improbable shooting percentage. He's never going to be a big time goal scorer, I'd be quite happy if he pots 20 while being a consistent physical presence on the forecheck and on hits.

I agree with that, I was more referencing how he bobbles/loses the puck on simple deeks/stickhandling. I know hes not going to dangle people or be a sniper but it just seems like receiving passes is a chore this year. Maybe I just got spoiled by his hot streak to end last year

Don't think he has much confidence in his ability right now, maybe the pressure of actually having expectations has him squeezing his stick a bit
