Top Three Lines: Chicago Blackhawks 6, Buffalo Sabres 2

1) This is my least favorite Sabres team of all-time. 2) Derek Roy and Drew Stafford are playing as if they are in one of the dreams in “Nightmare on Elm Street” and there is no plausible way they are escaping hockey doom on any given play. 3) When Jhonas Enroth looks that far out-of-it,… Continue Reading

The Time Has Come To Part Ways With Regier

(WECK 1230) — It’s easy to type these words on the night the Buffalo Sabres are vanquished by an inferior — in talent — foe, but let me assure you I decided to post this when Raffi Torres was the team’s only trade deadline acquisition. Sabres general manager Darcy Regier, a superb boon to the… Continue Reading
