Those feelings dissipated over the two-month run by the Blues, who won their first Stanley Cup in the 52-year history of the franchise. O’Reilly had a...

I’ll remember a lot of things from the last hockey season. I’ll remember the win streak in November, the epic collapse, the emergence of a lethal top line with two guys going to the All-Star Game… and I’ll remember my “Skinner Bet”. When the Buffalo Sabres traded for Jeff Skinner last August, I...

Last weekend, I randomly asked my Twitter audience to rank 1-4 each AFC East team's overall wide receivers. I tweeted out a screenshot of each team’s units and just watched the replies come in, and boy did they come in. Of course, most of my followers are Buffalo Bills fans, so there was definitely...

The Buffalo Bills have tilted my head a little bit this spring by the respect they're getting from oddsmakers and bettors. Granted, this is a modest standard. But it's something. The Bills' win total at BetOnline is seven -- all numbers here are from that site -- and the over is -125. That means...

Fans are always warned not to get too high or too low while reading reports during OTAs and minicamps, especially when they involve your team’s second-year hopeful franchise quarterback.
