Sabres Need to Do the Opposite of Their Offseason Instincts
“Why did it all turn out like this for me? I had so much promise. I was personable, I was bright. Oh, maybe not academically speaking, but… I was perceptive. I always know when someone’s uncomfortable at a party. It became very clear to me sitting out there today, that every decision I’ve ever made, […]

Sabres’ 2020 Trade Targets on Non-Playoff Teams
This is the offseason that never ends. It seems like an eternity since Rasmus Dahlin scored the shootout-winning goal against the Washington Capitals. Had that been the end of the regular season, the Stanley Cup would be handed out, the NHL draft would be complete, the free agents would have landed and we’d be starting […]
Sabres’ 2019-20 Analytics Autopsy: Defencemen
Now that another Buffalo Sabres season is finished – and mercifully so – many are conducting an autopsy of the past few months; and there was more bad than good. Extending the franchise-record playoff drought to nine seasons in a year when over 77 percent of teams made the postseason (not a typo), is something […]
Sabres’ 2019-20 Analytics Autopsy: Forwards
Now that another Buffalo Sabres season is finished – and mercifully so – many are now conducting an autopsy of the past few months. To be sure, there was certainly more bad than good. Extending your franchise record non-playoff streak to nine seasons at a time when over 77 percent of teams made the postseason […]
Sabres’ First and Second-Round Draft Targets
With the NHL draft being mere days (weeks, months… who really knows at this point) away, teams are no doubt ramping up their virtual draft prep. Although the Buffalo Sabres should really look to trade their first-round pick for help right now, it appears unlikely that teams will be trading before the draft. The Sabres […]
Sabres Survive Senators in Overtime – Reliving the May 5, 2006 Classic
The 2005-06 season was a very memorable one for Buffalo Sabres fans. Coming out of the NHL lockout, the team was not expected to accomplish much with a low payroll and the second-lowest highest-paid player in the league. They were a young team, led by co-captains Daniel Briere and Chris Drury along with Teppo Numminen […]

Sabres’ Trade Targets With First-Round Pick
Last week we made the case for the Buffalo Sabres trading their first-round pick. With the NHL rumoured to be pushing for a draft in early June, now is the time to look into specifics for trade possibilities. We need to identify teams with impactful, offensive players that are looking to shake things up and […]
Sabres Need to Trade Their First-Round Pick
In a given year, the NHL Draft is not an exact science. Players will rise and fall and the real results of a draft can’t truly be known for upwards of five seasons. This season, the idea of the draft itself is mired in questions. When will the draft be? Where will it be? When […]
Sabres’ Free Agents – Should They Stay or Should They Go?
With the 2019-20 season on hiatus, so much is up in the air. We don’t know if there will be a conclusion to the regular season, a shortened playoff format or really any semblance of playoffs to conclude the season. What we do know is that there will be an offseason. For the Buffalo Sabres, […]

Sabres Slay Rangers in OT – Reliving the May 4, 2007 Classic
Indelible: “not able to be forgotten or removed.” Not many moments in one’s life can be described as indelible. The first and last day of school, your wedding and maybe the births of your children would qualify. For elements as relatively meaningless as sports, it takes something truly special to never be forgotten. For Buffalo […]

Sabres Hurt More Than Helped by NHL Season Pause
When the NHL originally said that the league would be suspended for a couple of weeks before being reassessed, there was a degree of optimism. The hope existed that we could potentially see a return to action. What a difference a few days makes. Now, it is unlikely we will see a completion of the […]
Top-10 Sabres Killers
Every team has them. Those players that you know are going to torch you every time you play them. The guys that, for one reason or another, always seem to have your teams’ number. The Buffalo Sabres are no different. Over the past 50 years, they have built a list of Sabres Killers. Here we […]

Solutions to Sabres’ Special Teams Struggles
There are myriad reasons why the Buffalo Sabres are outside of the playoff picture for a ninth straight season.

Sabres’ 2019 Draft Class Catch-Up
Believe it or not, it’s been over eight months since Jason Botterill took the stage in Vancouver to welcome six new members to the Buffalo Sabres’ organization. We certainly know much more about some of these players now than we did in June. Before we put our focus on the upcoming draft, let’s take some […]
Sabres’ Kahun Is a Solution for the Top-Six
Their needs were pretty apparent. Everyone knew going into Monday’s trade deadline that the Buffalo Sabres needed to address their need for a second-line centre and a second-line right-winger. While they were unable to solve their issues at centre, the addition of 24-year-old Dominik Kahun may have solved their problems on the wing. Related: Buffalo […]
Sabres Must Prioritize Picks Over Progress at Trade Deadline
The Buffalo Sabres find themselves at a fork in the road. Currently sitting eight points behind the Toronto Maple Leafs with just a game in hand, they squandered what could have been a potential playoff push.

Sabres’ Trade Deadline Sales Pitches
The Buffalo Sabres’ annual trade deadline blowout bonanza is upon us. As has been the case for nearly a decade, the Sabres find themselves approaching the deadline with one goal in mind: offload as many assets as possible for as much as possible. The problem this season is that the expiring contracts they have available […]
