Given the reports that Regier shopped Stafford last year, and the fact that he's got a hefty contract, I'm fully expecting Drew to be traded this season.

Nine minutes and change tonight. Yikes.

Was an interesting game though, still some things to work on, but I'm also conflicted on where to stand with this team.

What kills, KILLS me is that he is so inconsistent but he can possess well, and when he turns it on, he turns it ON

I could see some poor teams taking on the contract. With just two years left on it, it wouldn't serve as a long-term burden, I feel.

- 3 in a row! And it was an entertaining game to boot.
- Kaleta and Ott again.
- I thought Porter was strong defensively today. Didn't look out of place at all.
- Penalty kill.
- Weber on the ice for over 20 minutes and no goals against.
- Ehrhoff eating big minutes
- Hodgson and Pominville offensively...

B:
- ...but they are a mess in their own zone.
- Foligno with another tough night.
- I thought Ennis had a tough game too. It seemed like they were trying to put him into a lot of offensive situations with Vanek out, and he wasn't able to take advantage of it.
- Power play.

U:
- Nada.

Could be just a coincidence and small sample size, but they look like they are giving more effort under Rolston. I really didn't like Rolston putting Gerbe with Ennis in a top 6 role, but he's looked really solid lately..perhaps responding better to a new coach?

When we play the Devils on Thursday, there is going to be some bad blood boiling over. Kaleta really going under Kovalchuk's skin and Ott and Clarkson were going at it all night. Going to be exciting to see.

U: Delusional Devils fans saying that the Sabres were gooning it up...

- Within the first minute of the game, Clarkson went straight from the bench and coaxed Ott into a fight. Clarkson is lucky he didn't get the instigator, as Ott had nothing to do with him until Clarkson approached him, and challenged him.

- Kovalchuk was at least as guilty as Kaleta in their exchanges. When they left the penalty box, Kovalchuk went after Kaleta immediately, and slashed him (which went uncalled), and then only moments later, went up high on Kaleta with his stick (which was called). I saw people on the Devils board saying that "Kaleta went right after Kovalchuk leaving the penalty box." Time to take off the rose colored glasses and forget your preconceived notions of Kaleta, and actually watch what happened. If anything, Kocalchuk "gooned it up" with his questionable stick work.

- Ennis was boarded twice without a call. Probably the most dangerous play in hockey. Porter got called with a weak board (from the side, and I don't even think the guy went into the boards).

- There was a sequence where Clarkson gave Miller a shot to the back of the head/upper back region, after Miller freezed the puck. Ott responded by pushing Clarkson out of the crease forcefully. I'd say both players were equally guilty in that exchange.

- I'll admit Regher got away with a cross check on Kovalchuk later in the game. I don't think he intended for Kovy to fall so hard though. Just a bump when the puck went by. I think Kovy was just surprised, and that is what caused him to fall so violently. Definitely should have been a penalty though.

- I will also admit that in the exchange between Henrique and Ennis at the end of the OT period, Ennis initiated the contact. Henrique definitely retaliated though. I would call this exchange a draw in terms of guilt. Just a typical skirmish. Ennis did have a right to shoot it though. The buzzer hadn't gone yet. I don't see how shooting it with time left on the clock is unsportsmanlike.

In conclusion, I don't know what game they were watching, but it shows me that people will see what they want to see. People just got mad at Ott and Kaleta based on their reputations, and not based on what was happening on the ice.

Build around Hodgson? I dont think he is getting enough love this year. Yeah, he is struggling on defense, but he is improving on faceoffs and I expect a smart player like him to improve on defense.

Ott and Kaleta get people mad because they do what they do best and it helped us.

I agree with your overall statement and most of your points. I saw these two differently, though.

Regehr's cross check on Kovalchuk wasn't just a bump. Should've been called. Penalty all the way, and the officiating was bad all night... and they missed an obvious penalty.

Ennis - Henrique: both were just gliding toward each other. Ennis went up high on the push, and Henrique knocked him down. Henrique wasn't taking offense to the shot - he didn't make a bee-line to Ennis. Just one of those things that happens when two players skating toward each other won't back down. Devils fans are calling Ennis cheap. Good for Tyler. Good to see he won't let players back him down.

Apparently Henrique thought Ennis shot the puck at him and not towards the goalie.
