Lost faceoff = goal. What is that, 5 or 6 this year?

Might even be more. Just ugh.

Must be a weird position for Grigs, being in a role that is so unimportant compared to his time with Quebec and the Russian team.

So typical of this team, allowing a late goal before the period ends..on a lost faceoff too haha.

The consensus is Grigs is being completely mishandled?

how does the 55, 9, 36 line seemingly get double shifted constantly?

Vanek - Tavares - Pominville would be an amazing line, IMO.

Rob Ray has to be the worst analyst in the league, there needs to be a "no **** Sherlock" button for everything he says

Grigs shouldn't be in the NHL in the first place. So in that sense, yes.

It's a combination of him not really being ready and having nobody to play him with.

No. He's just not ready. If anything playing him too much has cost the Sabres some goals and perhaps a couple of games. He's been brutal on the power play when he got shifts there, too.

Unrelated (or perhaps somewhat related) note...but if the Sabres were even decent on faceoffs they'd probably be in a playoff spot right now. Sooo many goals against off of draws.

I'm convinced that this team has no idea to play hockey. I spend 20 minutes a period shouting, "Get the ****ing puck out of the zone." They can't handle a forecheck worth a ****.

not at all imo. JT Miller scored 2 goals on the 4th line for NYR last night. step up if youre worthy.

it is what it is. Grigs and his handling is the least of my concerns at this point.

Islanders haven't totally dominating this team on the ice. Fortunately the score is even.

Seriously, does this team hit anyone?

This whole tough to play against thing is BS. Islanders aren't afraid of these guys and we aren't punishing them on the forecheck. The opposite is happening as they're finishing every check.

At least Madden was amusing. Ray's just annoying.

You've obviously never heard a Coyotes game. This one guy's voice gets on my nerves.

Why is Ehrhoff playing with Leopold? Why ruin the old good thing you have on D by playing him with that sieve.
