Do we claim Konopka? He stinks. We stink. We need bodies. He's a body. Good match.

Hoping for a breakout game from Larsson, need to keep Leino out when hes healthy again.

Well, he does need a birthday present better than what he's received thus far.

Just realized, today is Konopka's birthday, too #mnwild

Seems like a great fit. Especially wouldn't mind him on the bottom line as long as McCormick's still out.

Waived on his birthday....how rotten.

Too bad they didn't waive him in time for him to play for the Sabres tonight against the Wild. Then the Wild could have given him a tribute video on his birthday.
No class.

Business is business. We had an emergency, he was expendable.

Good guy, loved by the fans, his teammates, and probably will end up on a pretty good team. If we continue this slump, it's a birthday present.

‏@BuffaloSabres

The defense shoots on Miller as the morning skate winds down. Looks like he'll be tonight's starting goalie. #sabres -CR

@BuffaloSabres

#MillerTime: In his last seven games, Ryan Miller is 5-1-1 with a .954 save % and a 1.66 GAA. #Olympian

Myers didn't practice yesterday, but he said he's ready. Nolan said Ott will play tonight (Ott didn't take the morning skate). #sabres -CR

Ugh... Betting all vCash on Sabres. Why? It's a win-win situation.

Either we keep losing and I win (+possibly a new coach) or I get vCash.

Feel for Pominville, maybe he is cursed?

Good point! And if we do just as good (or bad) we clearly get a top 3 pick. Nice.
