TSn rankings

hey we finally cracked the top 10 though now they complain we only win by one goal.

They'll never be happy!

The Sabres could win the Stanley Cup, but TSN would still drop us 10 points because somebody Hecht twists his ankle or something.

Seriously, there's something seriously wrong with a formula that ranks injuries and scoring stats much more highly than results.

I loved the subtle "power" reference TSN said we might lack due to winning small margin games.

The more powerful teams have the ability to win the grind-it-out, one-goal games if anything.

I find it fun that he bounces teams around so drastically. Granted, "power" vs. "record" being a criteria, I'll take the Sabres record.

I love Phonenix's 16-15 record and them being above half the team 4 or more games above .500.

They have "power" apparently.

Goes to show someone...

who really doesn't watch the games, just looks at results.

For the most part, the Sabres transition game and overall team speed has led to ample scoring chances and PP opportunities. Most teams simply cannot keep up with the Sabres.

If there's a problem, it's been with the Sabres holding onto multi-goal leads. They need to take a page from Ottawa's book and keep trying to score more goals, generally keeping the play down in the opponent's end. I understand not trying too many risky plays, but you can't just let teams have chance after chance, just b/c you're up 2-3 goals.

This happened in the Dallas game and both of the Pittsburgh games. Luckily, when the score gets close, the Sabres start to skate again and have been able to hold onto all of the close ones recently.

Well a backhanded compliment is still a compliment I guess. I'm just glad the Sabres swept over the weekend. If they hadn't, TSN would probably have them in the bottom 10.

Losing Wayne = loss of power.

And apparently he thinks Jordin Tootoo and Kris Beech getting called up to Nashville bodes well for them? Really? Kris Beech?

I seem to recall "something, something, Jason Pominville-led Sabres sounds weird?"

But Kris Beech is mentioned as a positive. Really? Seriously?

Okay....

This guy clearly just doesn't get what the goal of hockey is: to score at least one more goal than your opponent.
