LaxSabre - Looks like Reinhart is back in the Sabres lineup this weekend as Baptiste stays with the Amerks.

If people want something positive from me, Mullen is incredibly impressive. He's not a prospect, so most won't care. But he's excellent in every zone. Excellent pick up by Murray. I hope he's back season along with Fedun.

Amerks go down 3-2 late in the second. Tie the game in the 3rd, then take the lead with 7 minutes to go. Kennedy takes a penalty with 2 minutes to go, Amerks give up a goal then lose it with 4 seconds left. It's becoming harder and harder comprehend how bad they are.

He pushes the team forward and success at the AHL is only a good thing for everyone here. You keep trying to put yourself on this island, so of course people are going to take potshots. We're all the same family and it's been lousy hockey around here for too long for everyone involved.

What kind of season is Brycen Martin having? Does he look like there's anything there?

Martin has played 6 games in Rochester, and has 4 points in 26 games with Elmira and is a -14, but I'm not sure the Elmira stats mean much because they are abjectly, horrifyingly awful.

Once again the Amerks are getting outshot by a 2:1 margin - the Bylsma system works as planned. Genius!

At least Nylander scored the Roch goal.

LaxSabre - Unfortunately the Amerks couldn't do what the Crunch did on Friday -
@AmerksHockey - #Amerks get a power-play with 1:34 left in regulation and down 4-3. #RCH pull Muse for the 6-on-4 advantage.
@AmerksHockey - #Amerks come back to pull within a goal but cannot find equalizer as they fall 4-3 to the #Crunch. #RCHvsSYR

I wasn't being entirely serious. But there are some who, for example, rooted for Grant to get claimed instead of clearing and going to Rochester. But I know that most people would like to see the entire organization succeed.

^^ That's nuts. Loved the reaction of the rest of the team watching it on the jumbotron.

Mullen, Bodie and Kennedy. That's not terrible when it comes to in season additions. I give Murray credit for doing something. The issue is he always puts such a bad team on the ice to start the season that the hole is already too deep to climb out of. Perhaps next season they can actually have a good first half.

I was going to rain on your parade, and then I noticed and laughed that I was going to be more critical than sabrefan27. So here's my post:

I don't give TM much credit here. As you've said a hundred times, and many of us said in the summer Murray didn't add enough depth in the summer (D and C). Plus some of the vets were huge letdowns (Catenacci to name names).

This would have been a good start to the season if he signed enough depth in the organization to keep it here most of the season:

Falk Fedun
Bodie Mullen
Austin Strachan
Nelson

There's nothing to spin. Billionaires forcing a poor city to spend public money on arena upgrades. The arena is perfectly fine. Really petty and really low of the Pegulas and Sabres organization.

Yep. This is not a good look.

I also doubt they go anywhere. But really low to drag fans through the mud like this. They should be above this. Really unfortunate
