Buffalo Sabres Rank 60th In ESPN 2016 Ultimate Standings, 16th Among All NHL Teams

The Buffalo Sabres improve slightly on last year’s fan-based rankings. The other day, someone on Twitter complained that I am too negative in my coverage of the Buffalo Sabres. My optimistic piece on Sam Reinhart today would argue otherwise, and with the way the Sabres have been playing to start this season, I’m not sure […] Buffalo Sabres Rank 60th In ESPN 2016 Ultimate Standings...

Grading the Buffalo Sabres - Week ending 10/23/16

We’re going to do the player grades polls every week Last season we tried to do a player grades poll after every Buffalo Sabres game, and it was pretty chaotic. That’s not to say we can’t go back to that again, but it seemed that not too many people were voting. So to open this season, we’re going to do this on a weekly basis, where 3-4 games is a reasonable sample size...

Sabres’ Matt Moulson off to hot start

BUFFALO – The genesis of Sabres winger Matt Moulson’s revival began in the wintertime, long before he started a productive summer of training in which he reshaped his body, helping him add some much-needed speed. Eight or nine months ago, at the behest of management, Moulson changed his work habits as he struggled through an awful eight-goal season. When the Sabres challenged...

Sam Reinhart moving to center, Moulson to top line

Dan Bylsma is hoping to spark Sam Reinhart by moving him back to his natural position. At Sabres practice this afternoon, a move that many Sabres fans thought should have happened at the beginning of the season seems to have finally taken place - the move of Sam Reinhart to center. Reinhart spent time this morning centering Zemgus Girgensons and Tyler Ennis on the Sabres second...

Buffalo Sabres Lack Of Forward Depth Needs To Be Addressed ASAP

The Buffalo Sabres roster may be improved, but injuries have exposed how thin the team is on talented forwards.

The 2016-17 NHL season marks the 10-year anniversary of the Buffalo Sabres’ Presidents’ Trophy season.

Sabres Survive Western Swing

Sabres fans were treated to the return of legendary TV and radio personality Rick Jeanneret on its recent road trip while promising rookie forward Nick Baptiste registered his first-career NHL goal, but Buffalo’s early-season road swing through Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver wasn’t anything to write home about. Most likely, though, the Sabres’ 1-1-1 road trip will suit fans...

Crease Crash Course: Sabres Victimized by Man Advantage

The Sabres finished the western portion of their road trip one or two points short of where they realistically should have been. A couple of gifts from the officials in Calgary wound up in an overtime loss – in a game the Sabres were thoroughly outplayed in – while the team was shooting blanks in Thursday’s affair in Vancouver. Thursday’s loss to Vancouver was a particularly...

Sabres dipping into the prospect pool early

It’s no secret that the Buffalo Sabres have been swimming at the bottom of the barrel for several years now. The benefit to that is that this means that they are able to draft early every year. They’ve collected some pretty solid talent, most notably the currently injured Jack Eichel, the runner-up prize to Connor McDavid last year. The Sabres have 6 players born in 1994 or later...

Buffalo Sabres: This is our year

Where were you the last time the Buffalo Sabres played in an NHL playoff game? Chances are it might be a little difficult to remember, the reason being because it has been five years since the Sabres last playoff appearance.
