Sabres coach Ted Nolan cracks down after 10-shot effort

  The gloves are off in Buffalo now that coach Ted Nolan's patience has run out waiting for his lethargic Sabres to start showing signs of a spark. Nolan expressed his frustrations, including using a profanity in yelling at his team to "wake ... up," while putting his players through a grueling 90-minute practice Wednesday. "Now is the time where taking it easy...

Nolan skates Sabres, says the time for ‘taking it easy is over’

We’re not trying to pile on the Sabres. Honest. But with just two games on the NHL schedule tonight, we’d be remiss to ignore the following accounts of Buffalo’s practice today. First, from the Olean Times Herald: At one point, coach Ted Nolan, whose 2-8 team was demolished 4-0 in Toronto on Tuesday, yelled, “Wake the (expletive) up!” Players exchanged words and yelled...

Another Bad Loss For The Buffalo Sabres

from John Vogl of the Buffalo News, There have been some horrible, downright despicable performances by the Sabres since they were founded in 1970. Pity anyone who watched one worse than Tuesday’s outing. Buffalo’s 10th game of 2014-15 had folks looking to the calendar to see when this season will be over. Only 24 weeks and 72 games left! Pity anyone who stays with...

Cody Hodgson A Key To The Future Of The Buffalo Sabres

from Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet, The ultimate success of Buffalo’s complete reboot will largely be determined by the high-end picks the Sabres have either already made (Sam Reinhart, second overall last June) or are on target to make in the next year or two. That said, players like (Cody) Hodgson, Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno will be huge factors in determining just how fast...

Bruins are smart to reject Sabres' asking price for Stewart

It’s well established the Bruins have some level of interest in rugged Sabres right winger Chris Stewart. The B's are obviously in need of a top-six right wing and Stewart -- in the last year of his contract -- was first mentioned as a potential Boston target in the hockey notes right after the season started. Multiple reports had the Bruins reaching out to the...

Tyler Myers isn’t getting traded

From Hometown Hockey: It didn’t take long, but the NHL rumor mill is already warming up. One of the favorite names mentioned in those rumors is none other than Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers. You may remember the 6’8” defenseman from any complaint registered by any Sabres fan ever. He’s also the 2010 Calder Memorial […] The post Tyler Myers isn’t getting traded...

Buffalo’s Brian Gionta was able to avoid a serious injury following this huge hit from San Jose’s Tommy Wingels. The hit was a controversial one and no penalty was called on the play. Should there have been one?

Report: Bruins had serious talks with the Sabres about Chris Stewart

Back in June, the ol’ rumor mill was suggesting that the Buffalo Sabres were actively shopping Chris Stewart. Nothing came to fruition, but that doesn’t mean the rumors have quieted nor have talks behind the scenes involving Stewart ceased. A new report seen on suggests that the Boston Bruins have spoken with the Sabres regarding Stewart, but the two sides couldn’t...

Sam Reinhart should be returned to juniors

We’re only a handful of games into the 2014-15 season, so it’s probably too early to make judgments about most things. That said, after four games it’s pretty clear that Buffalo Sabres top pick Sam Reinhart needs to be returned to his junior team. Don’t even wait to get near the nine-game deadline; send him […] The post Sam Reinhart should be returned to juniors appeared...

Buffalo coach Ted Nolan describes Sabres as a “pewee team”

The Buffalo Sabres are off to a horrid start in 2014-15 and fans are already questioning whether the team will be able to improve on their ugly 21-51-10 record from last season. So far, the Sabres have barely looked competitive and have lost 3-1, 6-2 and 5-1. The team’s most recent defeat to Anaheim led to coach Ted Nolan commenting on the state of his club. "That was like...

. @SabresStats: Setting The Tone

Remember when the Sabres started the 2006-07 season with 10 straight victories?  They outscored their opponents 49-23 in those 10 games.  They never looked back and rode that momentum all the way to the Presidents Cup.  That was a different team and a different time.  Only Drew Stafford and Patrick Kaleta (who only played 7 games that year) remain from that team. Last year...
