Sabres:
Bad, Bad, bad .... all bad....

Nothing good

Lots of ugly

Isle's

Good: Nabokov, Tavares!!

Ugly: # 17

Sorry but like the Sabres, I don't see any point in putting too much effort into this season.

Beyond Ugly: Gerbe just said that "we had a lot of good chances" on TV. I already wanted him gone, but that is an instant waive for me. If you think anything about this game was even okay, get the **** out of the NHL.

He's not going to be around.

Why would we want Darcy involved in decisions for another guys team.

By far. Very steady and rarely makes major mistakes.
You're going to get flamed for this, but I don't totally disagree. Meanwhile, Regehr was a complete clown/pylon tonight. Seriously, the guy looks done.

Pominville looked stoned tonight.

No other comments worthwhile.

There is no way this team makes the playoffs. Won't even be close.

Generally not for players like Vanek. Your UFAS etc you get the most bang for the buck with but teams are reluctant to seal the deal on trades like Vanek because of free agency and cap changes.

Good:

Elliotte Friedman ‏@FriedgeHNIC

Egad, both Girardi and McDonagh hurt for NYR. Brutal night for them



Atleast Rangers cant trade MDZ for RoR for awhile anyways.

It had that flavor, didn't it? Even in the wake of the surprise Ruff firing, I'd be shocked if they fire Regier tomorrow or any time in-season.

We can hope though. I want Regier to have no meaningful influence over the future direction of this team.

Hth straw man arguments can be used much more persuasively if you take the time.

The games over, you're playing awful and someone has your goalie in a headlock. Nobody feels the need to fight? I guess letting your goalie try to throw some shots by himself is enough...

It's embarrassing to watch. Some of type of emotion. I don't care if it's dirty/cheap/etc. So me that your care more than I do.

Wise words.

If they aren't going to fire Regier, what do you do? It seems like something has to be done.

In the good old days we could send some clowns down to Rochester. 1-way contracts suck.

How about a trade, even one that doesn't particularly favor the team, just to move someone out of here?

You claim he drafts well and makes good trades.

Show me the evidence of that.

This team has a severe lack of heart, talent and consistency.

For 6 years.
