The Buffalo Sabres are an oddity in today’s NHL in that they don’t have a captain.
Of course, that hasn’t always been the case. With frequent roster turnover in recent years, the Sabres have had 12 different captains since the 2001-02 season. One of those players played for the Bruins at one point in his career and is the last Bruins player to wear...
The Buffalo Sabres were picked by nearly everyone to finish last in the NHL during the 2014-15 season and be one of the teams with an opportunity to select Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel at the top of the 2015 draft.
After a rough start to the season, the Sabres have showed good improvement in the past two weeks with 6-4-0 record in their last 10 games.

Things are going well at One Seymour H Knox III Plaza these days. The Sabres have won 10 of their last 13 games and has done so with a mix of tremendous goaltending and scoring from their top line.

The Sabres are 9 points ahead of the last-place Edmonton Oilers. They are 4 points behind the Boston Bruins.
We might as well say it now: The Tank is dead. Long live The Tank.
I’ve been a vocal advocate of the Sabres’ apparently-deliberate strategy of tanking to get top draft picks in 2014 and 2015. It’s a simple philosophy: if you’re going to blow up and rebuild, do it...
From Hometown Hockey: I hate to be “that guy”, but I’m going to do it anyway. The Buffalo Sabres are enjoying a nice little run after starting the 2014-15 season in hilariously awful fashion, having won 10 of their last 13 games, with a shootout victory over the Ottawa Senators being the latest on Monday […]

Many hockey fans are complaining that the reported asking price for Buffalo Sabres defenseman, Tyler Myers is simply too high.At first glance that may be the case: Prospect Dylan Larkin, a roster player along the lines of a Riley Sheahan or Tomas Jurco, and a first-round pick. Still, if I were the Detroit Red Wings I would take the gamble. It is not everyday you will find a 6' foot...
The Buffalo Sabres are ready and willing to trade Chris Stewart. After Stewart was used as a healthy scratch, the writing was more or less on the wall that the club was prepared to move on. This rumor has been around for several weeks, but some more fuel was added to the fire in a new Pierre LeBrun column.
“Chris Stewart was a healthy scratch Tuesday night against the Los Angeles...
From Hometown Hockey: We live in a world of snap judgments and surface decisions. See something, determine your opinion on it without digging any further. In that case, it’s easy to say that Jhonas Enroth isn’t standing out much in Buffalo. But to anyone who has sat down to watch the Buffalo Sabres’ netminder in […]

Latvians love their hockey. Specifically, they love Latvian native and 20-year old Buffalo Sabres forward, Zemgus Girgensons, and currently they are showing their love through All-Star votes for the young forward. Lots and lots of All-Star votes.
The All-Star game voting totals were released after two weeks of voting, and with nearly 400,000 votes...
Last night Peter Chiarelli was in Buffalo and the rumor is that he was once again scouting Chris Stewart. There’s been rumors floated before that the Bruins were interested in Stewart and if there’s a fire sale in Buffalo as Tanksgiving continues then the Bruins would be in on him.
Chris Stewart is, at best, a poor man’s Milan Lucic. I’m sure a lot of people love the idea of...
A few years back, Rory Fitzpatrick became the name everyone got behind when it came time to vote for the NHL All-Star Game.
In case you forgot, Fitzpatrick was a journeyman defenseman who inexplicably got the internet behind him heading into the 2007 NHL All-Star Game. “Vote for Rory” took off, spawning t-shirts, campaigns on YouTube and...
From Hometown Hockey: The Sabres are exceeding expectations these days, riding high as one of the hottest teams in the league.

Things went off the rails last year when the Buffalo Sabres unveiled their newest alternate uniform that has since become known as the Turd Jersey (or #TurdJersey). It was the fourth alternate sweater designed by the Sabres and is by far the worst alternate jersey ever to grace an NHL ice surface.
In honor of tonight’s Second Annual Black and Red Night, I thought I’d honor the...
Tyler Ennis is buzzing with his 7th goal of the season.
The Buffalo Sabres must be happy with forward Tyler Ennis. This backhanded goal is absolutely everything. Take a look.
He’s just too good.

This goal is easily sitting in the top 3 of best goals thus far for the 2014-2015 NHL season. Check out Buffalo Sabres forward Tyler Ennis somehow netting a no-look backhander which made Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price wonder what the hell just happened. I have watched this maybe 10 times and still wondering how

The Buffalo Sabres are an awful hockey team. They stand at 3-12-2 just 18 games into the 2013-14 NHL regular season. That’s worst in the league, currently setting them up with the best chance at picking first overall in a loaded 2015 NHL Draft. There’s certainly hope for the future, but none of it should be allocated to this season.
Why is that a problem? Because NBCSN, in their...
