It's time for someone to go

The Good -

- First period
- Tropp tuned up Rinaldo
- Giroux. Great offensive performance

The Bad -

- Most of the last 45 minutes.
- Blowing a 3-0 lead.

The Ugly

- Turnovers. MAG's was the worst, costing them the game, but Ennis, Gerbe, and Ehrhoff all had direct turnovers resulting in goals against.
- Miller catching a puck in the eye.
- It's time. It's time for them to make a change.

Aside from Sekera, I'm tired of these "offensive defensemen."

The sooner Myers, Leo, and Weber get back, the better. Grags is just BRUTAL.

Same ****, different night.

They come out flying in the first, fall apart in the second and float around in the third.

Gragnani should never see another game with the Sabres. I don't care how many injuries they have right now, he should be done.

I saw a lot of people saying "where is Kassian" in the GDT. What more do you want from the guy? He is out scoring out "star players", he is creating offense for his teammates and their line was consistently the best line tonight.

But wow, I blame that entire game on Gragnani.

The Fire Ruff train is leaving the station. Can't say I agree but thems the breaks. Hopefully we string together some victories and get healthy.

Good thing we got at least a point out of that laugher.

Good: Claude Giroux has passed that ugly ****er Phil Kessel for the NHL scoring lead.
Bad: Sabres.
Ugly: Gragnani.

Good
First period
Kassian for the most part
Vanek/Roy
Tropp's fight
McNabb looks like he'll be solid in the future. Then again I thought that about chris butler...and grags.
Giroux and Jagr
We somehow got a point

Bad
Pretty much the rest of the game.
Miller getting clocked in the head with shots


Ugly
Blowing 3-0 leads, what else is new?
Grags and turnovers in general...ennis, gerbe, hoff losing the puck
If Stafford cashes in those 2 chances, the sabres win
Most of this team. Ruff's inability to adjust to anything. Him playing MAG in OT.
VS crew makes my ears bleed

So what former Sabre re-tread do the fanboys bring in to helm the team? Mike Foligno? Mike Ramsey? Don Lever? Arneil will be unemployed in a few weeks... maybe him.

The announcers said they hadn't seen him, so I thought maybe he was injured.

I would rather have Kassian in the line-up than most our regulars.

Boughner?

Seriously, they should have done it last year and promoted Dineen.

I would like to get inside Ruff's head so I can understand his reasoning for playing Gragnani, I really have no clue what his reasoning could possibly be for playing that worthless excuse of a defenseman.

The good:

Kassian.
Tropp and Ellis sacking up for their teammates.

The bad:

Almost everything.

The ugly:

I don't see it getting better any time soon and the injuries continue to pile up. Our ship has a hole in it...

Roy and Ennis are a terrible combination. That dangle/turnover fest in their own zone at the beginning of the second set the tone for the entire period.
