Good: Sabres playing good against the good teams.
Bad: Sabres playing like **** against the bad teams.
Ugly: Can't even tank right.

joke of a season, joke of a team.

trade whomever you can off the roster, accumulate draft picks and young players

done with 9-12 place finishes.

#47 - Trolls gonna troll

The Clint Eastwood - As frustrating as this season has been, the team really isn't horrible, just mediocre.

The Lee Van Cleef - Dropping four draft positions with this win.

The Eli Wallach - Toronto over rulling the high-stick no-goal when every replay showed Ott's stick a few inches above the crossbar. Oh, and Malkin's face.

Wait, does that mean you hate yourself?

As for the game, there's something quite comical about being the only team in the league that can beat the Pens with consistency.

G - Vanek, Miller, Hodgson with his best game in a while, Pysyk

B - Gerbe, Porter, Flynn, Pardy, Scott... These guys just don't belong in the NHL.

U - Vets like Hecht and Ott refusing to pack it in. You're not doing anyone a favor.

Ha....I also remember giving a game away against the Pens in Buffalo early on.

We seem to have their number this season.

G: Vanek, Miller and Pysyk were incredible.

B: Nothing to report. Maybe the zebras.

U: Letang being used as a Pinata all game long.

I'm not mad about the team winning, it's just pointless as this time.

Complaining about the team winning at this point is really complaining that they'll have a lesser player available at the draft. I LOVE beating the Penguins, but I'd love it more to have Monahan on the team instead of -----.

Just as its pointless to expect the team/organization to lose on purpose.

Just as its pointless to be upset that they won.

Just as its pointless to even be engaged with the team if you're not actively supporting them.

Just as its pointless to have a "Troll" thread if all the troll bull ***** ends up in the GDT's and GBU's.

I get that.. I really do. But all the complaining in the world isn't going to change where we end up.

Well, all the rooting and cheering won't change it either, so I guess life itself is pointless (at least for Sabres fans). Oh the futility of it all...

Ugly: People still want to trade Vanek and hope that Armia is able to reach his production in 3-4 seasons. Vanek has to be the bridge and I'm hoping management will be doing anything they can to convince him to stay and sign an extension.
