Toronto, ON (WGR 550) - I was expecting Jason Botterill to be pretty quiet for the trade deadline, but he was able to pull off a hockey trade on Sunday. Acquiring Brandon Montour, to me, was a risk worth taking. I call it a risk because he can be a tad inconsistent, but he definitely fits the game...

Back in November, the Buffalo Sabres went a 10-game winning streak, which shot them to the top of the NHL standings. In 34 games since the end of the winning streak, the team has just 11 wins and sit six points out of the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference. That kind of collapse has...

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...

Since the Buffalo Sabres' 10-game winning streak in November, the season has taken a bit of a turn in the opposite direction. In an 18-game stretch, the Sabres have gone 6-8-4, and have started to slide down the standings with other teams behind them playing well. In addition, the Sabres have...

Here are three (not-so) quick points on the Buffalo Sabres, laid out in a 3-2-1 format to raise awareness on how badly the NHL needs a 3-2-1 point format. Three red-hot takes comin' at ya: 3.)
