When you suggest that he barely qualifies as a backup, that's pretty much what you're implying.

Yeah, he's been playing really well. Impressed by Ruhwedel too so far.

If I were to say to you "By my estimation you barely contribute anything to this board. But don't read into that me saying you aren't a good poster!"

How would you react?


Come on now, this is the most ridiculous argument of semantics.

Obviously you're being facetious and you have a point, but getting a MacKinnon etc would make a world of difference. Buffalo has some quality support players. If they were to keep Miller and Vanek, guys continue to improve, having a #1 overall from this draft on the roster next year... they could already be a playoff team. Or if they trade Miller and Vanek, they'd have a hell of a lot of young assets between that return + what they have now + the #1 overall.

It is what it is, they're only going to get #1 if they win the lottery and that's a very slim chance, but it would bring a massive change in the fortunes of the organization.

I would say... You're entitled to your opinion like me. I would not think you mean I am a bad person that doesn't deserve to be in the Internet.



Enroth is playing good. He belongs in the NHL as a backup. And in my opinion ... Barely. You don't agree? So what?

Not to mention, I usually ignore the posters that I feel "don't contribute much" that I feel like reading. You don't agree with anything I type? You want to argue every point or opinion? Throw me on ignore. Won't bother me

These two players, if they can continue to build on what they've shown, are exactly what the defence needs. They are poised, they move the puck out of the zone, and they make smart decisions with the puck in the offensive zone. That improves the team possession-wise in both ends, and that is the biggest area where they've needed to improve imo.

Rob Ray can you please knock out that loser ****** bag in the first row who kept getting his ugly mug in the camera view? Can't stand the idiots that want to be seen for 2 seconds on Tv. Especially the intermission report at the desk you got the idiots in the last row popping their head up and waving their arms like a fool

You're right, my world shouldn't revolve around what others think. And it doesn't. But you're really, really out to lunch. Everyone's entitled to their opinion, but that right doesn't protect them from someone else calling it out for being off base.

Off base for you, and how you view him. That's fine.

Pysyk keeps impressing. He is smooth. The shot-pass he tried to sneak in on the second powerplay, I liked that. Seems like he sees the ice well and has a calmness to his game. Ruhwedel handles things well too. Weber threw a great hit, but also a handgranade. But I like what I'm seeing from him. Sekera and Ehrhoff rarely has me worrying. Pardy keeps it simple. Can't say I miss Regehr or Leopold. I mean, I liked them, but the defence is not worse off without them.

On another note, RJ sounds drunk every time he pronounces "Ruhwedel".

Hahaha yes neither one of us is closer to being accurate. The truth really is ~in the middle~



I can't get too excited about Pysyk. I just expect regression at this point.

I thought after the "newness" wears off and the adrenaline dies, that Psysk would start to show glaring rookie mistakes several times a game and he would be sent back to Rochester in favor of someone else...

But damn, he is still calm, not flashy, simple, and getting the job done in a solid way. He reads plays very well. Color me impressed with Psysk.
