Seeing Kassian tangle with Sestito was about the only good thing tonight. I'm still not convinced they're in seller mode but they should be.

Its truly pathetic. Particulary with a new owner throwing money around its even worse. Why couldn't they hire better? Maybe they are as bad at picking TV crews as they are with players?

Seriously...RJ and Neale may be going downhill, but they've earned the right to pretty much say whatever the hell they want...

Sylvester isn't cut out to call a high school game let alone an NHL game....and if I hear "Sin-Bin" from Gare one more time...

Probably true.

Its frustrating but realistically retooling the roster is more of a draft weekend thing.

I understand where he was going with 'be patient' but it looks like it's time for a change.
Is that Isabella Rossellini in your avatar? Her vids on sundance are freaky.

I don't see how this team doesn't pick in the top 10. On paper this team is not bad, but our offense isn't there. We have two forwards that can score this year.

Yea, I will go down or rise with the 10th or better pick prediction this draft.

Ugh, I'm out as a Sabres fan if Sylvester takes over play by play in ANY capacity. I'm sorry, I can't take it. He's fine in his current position as a host, but he is horrible as a play by play man.

Get a clue, Pegula.

I understand it's a much bigger problem then just him, but how does Lindy Ruff keep dressing Brad Boyes? Any of those kids in Rochester would play harder then him.

Hell, call up Derek Whitmore for the rest of the season. Atleast he'll play like he actually cares. Boyes may be the most useless player i have EVER seen play for the Sabres.

And there's been some useless players who've come through here...

Top 10? I think we're in the top 5 category. Pittsburgh, Boston and NYR next week, then the West coast trip, this team could hit rock bottom pretty soon...

True, they were useless also. Torres got 5 points atleast in 14 games. Corkum only played 10 games.

Boyes has 1 ESG in 43 games. lol

I wouldn't say they're proving you wrong as a team as much as the way things just happen in the NHL. Things snowball FAST in this league and that's why having a GM like Regier can bite you in the ass. Lose 5 games in a row in the NFL and your season is over. A 16 game season. Lose 5 games in a row early on in the NHL and your season is well on it's way to being over. 82 game season.

It's one of the things that makes the sport so great and frustrating at the same time. It's such a cerebral game that losing streaks can suck everything out of the team. There's so many variables in Hockey compared to other sports given the speed of the game. Having a team full of mental midgets doesn't help.

I can't believe that they're not looking to sell. maybe they don't get the price they want, but they've got to be at least looking...

I think I read someone saying…"patience, things will get better"… this team is such a dissapointment, this whole city is. Some one asked me once why do I live in buffalo? Do you like the snow? I said, yes I do like the snow it covers up all the **** on the ground, off topic... **** the sabres, and I know lindy will keep making a playoff push, just lose! We can get a great blue chip first rounder and a couple elite second rounders if we would just lose!
