It's pretty amazing to think that the Buffalo Sabres were once in first place in the National Hockey League standings, and now could realistically fall to 30th place by the end of the season. After losing 15 of their last 16 games, the Sabres are 28th in the NHL with 72 points. Nobody wants to be...

Is this heaven? No, this is Iowa. Ok, there isn’t a field or Kevin Costner or even Timothy Busfield, but Iowa looks pretty damn good to me and the Giant Goalie Son. It’s really been quite a whirlwind. On Tuesday afternoon, I traded voicemails with the assistant general manager of the Des Moines...

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - Victor Olofsson went right to work in his first NHL game. Sam Reinhart set the winger up in the slot, but Jimmy Howard stopped Olofsson and then robbed Reinhart on the rebound. A few minutes later, Reinhart just missed sending Olofsson down the slot alone. I think nerves may...

PHOENIX, AZ (WGR 550) - Be careful what you wish for, because this is getting out of hand. In a radical, maybe even historical, change to the NFL’s instant replay rules, owners voted 31-1 on Wednesday in favor of expanding replay challenges to include offensive and defensive pass interference...

At the end of last season, Ryan O'Reilly was the name people started latching onto with trade discussions. He ultimately was traded, and, yet again, the Buffalo Sabres find themselves struggling not to finish in the bottom-five of the National Hockey League standings. It seems as though the most...

There are times when talking sports in Buffalo for a living can be very depressing. There are too many Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres seasons for me to list. So when a winning team or season comes around you don't want the feeling to end. That was what made Sunday's NCAA tournament loss by the...

Montreal, QC (WGR 550) - If Carolina makes the playoffs this season, the Sabres will have the longest playoff drought in the NHL. Buffalo was officially eliminated from the playoffs on Saturday for the eighth straight year. For me, it’s not that they’re out, it’s they weren’t good enough to play...

When we enter the online system here through which we post our articles, there's a tab called "Sports Team". We're to pick between the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres. Whoops. 2019 marks four times in five years for the Buffalo Bulls in the men's NCAA Tournament (and two years running for the...
