The Sabres have come back three times in games where they've been down. That's probably about average and may be above average.

I would be shocked to death if I ever saw the Sabres play inspired hockey and outmuscle a team. Our defense is a so soft it's pathetic. We should trade Zhitnik, Delmore, and Campbell for Cairns, Marchment, and Purinton. I could care less if they don't score, at least the Sabres won't be pushed around like schoolgirls game after game. Makes me sick.
The 1970s Flyers had no talent? Bobby Clarke: Hall of Fame. Bill Barber: Hall of Fame. Bernie Parent: Hall of Fame. Reggie Leach: All Star. Rick MacLeish: All Star. Moose Dupont: All Star. Jimmy Watson: All Star.

Cairns, Marchment and Purinton? Are we trying to lose hockey games here?

Scream in someone's face and embarrass the hell out of him in front of everyone. That's what my hockey coaches have done and usually players change what thier doing wrong when that happens. Lindy Ruff and the entire Sabre team has no balls. It's so depressing.
I'm convinced. Style matters more than substance. Ruff would be a much better coach if he threw sticks onto the ice.

What would the panty wearing crowd who gasped when Ruff joked about Afinogenov being left behind in Rochester do if he called Satan a euphemism for a cat?

It did wonders in Washington this year.

Ruff would have to rip into Drury for letting the situation with his wife affect his on-ice performance for things to go the way they did in Washington with Cassidy at the end.
