Looking ahead to Buffalo’s goaltending options for 2015-16 by @2ITB_Buffalo

At long last, time is winding down on the Sabres season. The marathon trek to the league basement is all but complete at this point as the Sabres hold a four-point advantage over the Arizona Coyotes for the right to the 20% odds at the NHL Draft Lottery. While the Sabres aren’t yet guaranteed one of the top two picks in the draft, it’s looking more and more likely that t...

Tank Watch: 7 games left by @lukewachob

Seven – that’s how many games remain for the Buffalo Sabres and how many points they need to earn to risk finishing anywhere other than 30th. What happened last week: Glorious things, and don’t let the broadsheet brigade tell you otherwise. The Sabres lost all three of their games and picked up just one point, while the Coyotes not only beat the Sabres – they beat the Detroit...

Second Take with @BradleyGelber – How Are Sabres Fans Supposed To Act?

If nothing else, the 2014-2015 Buffalo Sabres season has proven I have absolutely no idea the “right way” for a fan to act. We’ve gotten our fair share of opinions from the MSM. Some folks have told us we aren’t allowed to openly root for our favorite team to lose. Others have told us we should take pride in it because as fans we are entitled to do whatever we want. Hearing...

Tanks….But No Tanks

I want to talk a little bit about “fandom”, or lack thereof. This involves the current predicament of the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres, currently holding the worst record in the league. Futility is not new to Buffalo, having missed the playoffs in the three previous years. This, in a league, where over half of the teams qualify for a playoff position. You would think that the struggles...

Post mortem: The Buffalo Sabres and cheering for the tank

I tried to fight it. Wanted so badly to follow my own mantra and not stoop to a low that once was thought to be incomprehensible. Fans don’t openly wish for their team to lose a real time game that they are watching, right? It’s one thing to want the team to have a poor […] The post Post mortem: The Buffalo Sabres and cheering for the tank appeared first on Along the Boards.

Sabres to make splash with potential new coach hire; could Pegula sway Babcock to Buffalo?

Ted Nolan is most likely finished as head coach of the Buffalo Sabres after the final game of this season.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Sabres are in last place. And many of their fans are openly rooting for the standings to stay that way.

The fans' objective has become for Buffalo to bottom out to...

We all know that the Buffalo Sabres are one of the worst teams in the NHL. That statement isn’t exactly a revelation.
