- Roy will finish the game with 2 helpers. One at even strength, other on PP.

- McMorrow will be in the line-up...Dukes it out with Wade Brookbank.

- Miller kicks away 20 to 25 shots.

I'll say a 3-2 Amerks win. They are notoriously good on home openers and their should be a big crowd.

Vanek, Gaustad and Bartovic with the goals.

It sounds like Miller is going through what he did at the beginning of last season... only in Rochester this time.

Askey is in now, FYI. I'm not sure if they put him in after the last goal or to start the 3rd. I think the latter.

I dont know where to begin. That was embarrasing. I realize it's only the first game, but that was beyond ridiculous.

Ryan Miller has some serious issues. This kid lets in some goals and he is just shot mentally. He needs to straighten himself out or he'll never be in the NHL. And, just like last season, he let in weak goals. Some were just not his fault, but some of them a high school goalie would have saved. This guy either shows he's capable of playing at a higher level th is season, or the Sabres need to look elsewhere for goaltending.

The defense, which I have been hyping a lot, looked worse than Miller, which almost isn't possible. They didn't throw more than two checks. No one was covered. The defense let them skate about three or four strides past the blueline before they decided to try to stop them. It was unbeleivable. I've never seen such a bad defensive effort in a very long time. The fact that the Moose didn't have 50 shots amazes me. Paetsch was the only bright spot on defense. Jillson looked god-awful.

The forwards weren't much better. The Amerks were outscored 6-0 at even strength. They couldn't get any pressure when they didn't have a PP. Vanek was invisible. The only time I noticed him was when he was in the penalty box. Paille was decent. Forchecking was no where to be seen.

Bottom line was it was only one game and I'm probably more pissed than I should be. But you don't come out and perform like that on opening night. This was a fluke game plain and simple. They will be fine, but they need some serious work.

Dominating on the scoreboard yes. Dominating PERFORMANCE? No.

Miller was THAT bad.

Wrist shot from the freaking blueline. Goal.

Wrist shot high at no angle. Goal.

He had no chance on one goal, it bounced off Janik, who up until then played great.

Jillson, Smith and Rohloff were horrible. Paetsch and Janik were bad but not as bad as the other three.

There were no fowards on Manitoba that were really that much better than the Amerk fowards. They didn't have to work hard to score that's for sure.

Manitoba's best player by far was Kirill Koltsov

Other than that, the fowards were about even. The defense and goaltending was just, asleep.

Rochester's best fowards were Chris Thorburn, Jason Botterill and Milan Bartovic.

I don't know the official TOI, but Cunneyworth seemed to play some guys way too much.

It was obvious even in the opening period that Derek Roy was not going to show up, but he was out there every other shift.

McMorrow should have been dressed, he's a boring fighter but he at least keeps people like Brookbank from closelining Paille and Ryan.

If I was the commish of the AHL I would suspend Jimmy Roy for the way he fought Botterill. Botts grabbed ahold of Roy, Roy turtled, when the refs went to grab ahold of them, Roy stood up, punched Botterill, threw him to the ice and punched him again.
