Niinimaa predicts Habs win over Sabres

As if the Sabres need more motivation.

I kinda liked how he did it tho....was just as a matter of fact way. He can still back out and say he was talking about monday in 2 weeks.
Anyway. We'll need a clutch performance from Huet. Kinda like the first game. Sabres had a ton of real quality chances in that game.

I predict a big game from Sergei Samsonov.

Oilers did not win the cup! Carolina did I wonder if Sammy got on the ice a little more the result might have changed.

I am supeised Niinimaa said this though he has not been with the team for a very long time, I wonder how the rest of the team feels.

If Sammy was so bad on Edmonton why did Lowe lose so much hair when he rejected their offer?

Yeah, right.

Lowe have made an offer to Samsnov and he rejected their offer.

Sabres are on a hot streak but those have tendency of ending at some point. Habs already took them into shootout last time we played, its our time now. Niinimaa is right.

Stupid comment by a third pairing defenseman who has been kicked out of every city he's ever played in (and Team Finland). The guy needs to grow up obviously.

Anyhow, the Sabres would have been fired up for us anyway after we showed them up a bit in their home opener (even tho we "lost").

I also don't understand the Samsonov signing. Especially when we badly need defensemen. I'm not sure I'm happy about the Johnson signing either. Both these guys are soft. We have very little grit.

Would you lighten up? It's not an important game in the big picture and the guy is just trying to have some fun. It's October not SC final game 7 for goddsakes.

And you don't like the Samsonov or Johnson moves... Oh yeah I agree Zednik and Bulis are way better.

Unbelievable.

Not happy with the Johnson signing are you crazy this guy has energized Bonk's game scored 2 goals and is simply amazing on the PK.

Quite honestly, I can't understand why would anyone be unsatisfied with Mike Johnson as a Hab so far. He's been working hard, playing well on the PK unit and scoring goals too. Can't say I'm disappointed with him at all. Just what I expected.

Is this a joke

Why do you even watch hockey if it seems to make you so misanthropic

I used to think "well Buffalo's gonna lose soon" after all they're still undefeated. Would like to hope that this time everyone has engines fired and who knows, Buffalo gets an unlucky card?

the sabres are playing their 3rd game in 4 nights. We should have beat them in the first week of the season.... so we all know its a good opprtunity to knock off the sabres with or without bonk.

But there is nothing good to come out of this when you make it public. I hope this doesn't add fire to the sabre bellies.

Not just 3rd game in 4 nights. 3rd game in 4 nights WITH TRAVELLING. There's a difference between it and a 3 in 4 home stay.

Tomorrow, we will all bet vBucks on the Habs and be rich when they win, because those odds oughta be good. I'll ask for GUIDANCE~! from the greats that have passed on tonight.
