Brian Flynn

Quote:
BUFFALO, N.Y. (March 1, 2013) --- Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier has announced that forward Brian Flynn has been recalled from the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League.

Flynn (7/26/88, 6'1", 180 lbs) joins the Sabres on his first career recall after signing with the Sabres on March 29, 2012. In 45 games for the Americans this season, the Lynnfield, Mass. native has recorded 32 points (16+16), tying to lead all Rochester skaters in goals and ranking 10th among all AHL rookies in both goals and points.

The University of Maine alumnus joined the Americans for five games at the end of the 2011-12 season, recording an assist in his AHL debut.

26 now (24 healthy, 2 on IR [Leino and Sulzer]), so they made some sort of transaction.

Probably Leo to retroactive IR.

He hasn't done too bad in Roch this year, why not? Yeah it's a little out of left field but this team has nothing to lose.

Maybe it is?

It does appear as though Rolston is bringing in his own blood. Changing the culture a bit?

Brutal. Waste of a year off his ELC and if they decide to play Flynn over Grigs I will lose my mind

Enough with these Matt Ellis type career AHLers. Play him over Scott or Gerbe not Grigs.

Grigs being sent down to join his junior team in the playoffs would give me some respect for Darcy being able to admit he made a mistake. It's for the best if it is the move being made. I think there could even be some time for him to play in the AHL depending on how far his team goes.

Waste of a year for the entire organization.

Lame duck staff and front office and a team going nowhere.

The guy hasn't even played an NHL game yet and he's already going to be Matt Ellis? Are you basing this opinion solely on the fact that he wasn't drafted, same as Ellis? Based on what guys like Damien Brunner and Cory Conacher are doing this year, not to mention what Matt Read and Carl Hagelin have done in the past few years, I'm curious to see what the kid has to offer. He's only a 1 year contract, so it's no harm, no foul really.

Face the facts, Grigs isn't ready for the NHL, so why keep him up here? Keeping him up at 18 years old, just to play like a lost puppy, is going to do nothing for his confidence as a hockey player.

Well, ya see, anyone who isn't in the NHL must suck, and therefore be just like Matt Ellis because Matt Ellis really sucks. In this sad delusion Porter is Matt Ellis, Flynn is Matt Ellis, Pysyk is Matt Ellis, Tarnarsky is Matt Ellis, Leggio is Matt Ellis, Girgensons is Matt Ellis, Adam is Matt Ellis ..... You see the pattern right?

Not in the NHL today = suck. Suck = Matt Ellis. Once you agree to this twisted pathetic logic, you'll understand.

Flynn has been great in Rochester. I'm certainly excited to see what he can do up here. He deserves a shot.
