Edmonton, AB (WGR 550) - I think losing to a team 7-2 in a building where they’ve dropped six out of seven means the Sabres have hit rock bottom. The team had a shot mentality, but the defense was horrendous in front of both Carter Hutton and Linus Ullmark. The Sabres had all sorts of pressure to...

This past sports weekend stunk. The Buffalo Sabres lost to the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday thanks to a slew of fluky goals. Then the Sabres lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday after they were unable to hold on to a third period lead. Thanks to the out of town scoreboard, they also dropped...

Raleigh, NC (WGR 550) - Things started pretty well for Jeff Skinner in his return to Carolina. Right off the bat, he sent a nice pass to a wide open and breaking Jack Eichel, but Eichel couldn’t catch the pass or he would’ve been in alone. When Skinner was in Carolina, he was severely criticized...

When Jack Eichel returned to practice this week, my initial thought was to write something for our website outlining how Sam Reinhart's production drops when playing without Eichel. It sounds like something that would be true, it seems like something that would be true, considering the two players...

The Buffalo Bills have already made sure they don’t repeat the same mistake they made last offseason. Before lockers were even cleaned out and players were headed out of town for the offseason, they signed both veteran backup quarterbacks to return in 2019. First, Matt Barkley inked a new two-year...

Impressive or wow. Either one works to describe the first two conference games of the season for the University at Buffalo basketball team. The Bulls rolled into the Mid-American Conference portion of their schedule with a 12-1 record and a spot in the Associated Press Top-25 poll. Then they...

By this time last season, I was well into trying to figure out how Buffalo Sabres general manager Jason Botterill might best see fit to try and fix his hockey team. Underproducing veterans with bloated contracts and youth still waiting to blossom made for not many options. I concluded pretty early...

It was a rollercoaster month of December for the Rochester Americans that saw the team going 6-6-1 and falling out of the top spot in the North Division. However, the Amerks sat just two points back of Syracuse by the time the new year rang in on January 1. December started off with a 3-0 loss to...

It was all pretty much what we expected. Josh Allen played and was uneven. LeSean McCoy was ineffective, looking old. The defense was good. The offense lacked speed and talent, and the line took a step back. Nathan Peterman played himself off the roster. None of these 2018 Buffalo Bills events was...
