Myers and Leopold = Worst D pairing in NHL history. Seriously, watch these two. It's hilariously bad.

I think someone may be overreacting a bit.

I was going to start a thread but I'll just use this one.

I don't want to pile on Myers who is obviously having issues out there but has there been a worse player making 11 million dollars? Yes, that's right. The Buffalo Sabres are paying Tyler Myers more than ELEVEN MILLION dollars to play on their team.

I know it's only for this season, but still...

Tyler Myers most overpaid player in terms of strict salary this year.

I remember RogerRoeper got bashed for suggesting Phaneuf was better than Myers, but he's right.

Cullimore-Boynton from the 2010-11 Hawks was pretty awful.

I don't even know what the Sabres deal is. They were awesome the other night, and now they're horribad. Inconsistent.

I remember when Sabres fans said they wouldn't trade Myers for Giroux. I still think Myers has great potential, but it's starting to look like he is just as likely to become Barrett Jackman 2.0 as he is to become Zdeno Chara 2.0.

The answer to your question, by the way, is no. Myers and Leopold are playing poorly, but there are far worse pairings in the NHL. When the Flyers went to the SCF, our biggest weakness (besides Leighton) was our third pairing of Ryan Parent and Lukas Krajicek. Those two were dreadful.

Zanon and O'Byrne would have something to say about that.

Gotta admit. Myers might as well put on a Habs jersey at this point.

What ever happened to Myers anyways? Plus, although Smith has played better these past few games, Quincey and him would probably be in contention. Quincey still blows.

Just happens to be a night where Buffalo is dropping a stinker so far, and the Habs have everything falling into place. It's gonna happen sometimes. Doesn't mean Buffalo and their players suck or Montreal and their players are Gods.

(they are, though)

He will never be Zdeno Chara, ever.

Zdeno Chara is a one of a kind defenseman.

Just because Myers is tall doesn't mean that is has that mean streak.

Karlsson - Robidas is the best and worst pairing in the league
