Habs need PK Subban, they had no good attack tonight.

Campbell and Panthers smashing the Hurricanes.
Kovalev with a goal and an assist!

Tarasenko with a pair vs Detroit who only have 7 shots on net? :o

LOL the mongoloids have a 40 page thread for yesterdays games alone.

# 19 was completely invisible out there for the Sabres in the first period. Maybe his ceiling is the AHL.

Steve Ott is a complete pain in the ass out there. Vancouver could have really used this guy.

Buffalo is obviously tired of being pushed around in the East. Adding Ott, Foligno and Scott seems to have grown some hair on the chests of the rest of the team. Kaleta and Grigorenko aren't afraid to throw their weight around either. Grigorenko is going to be a beauty...... he has first line centre written all over him.

Wasn't there a rumor at one point where Dallas offering Steve Ott for Cody Hodgson?

But, yeah I agree...the Sabres looked great that first period. Got lots of depth all over, solid goalteding...could be a surprise team this year. Fuck do I like Foligno and agree on Grigorenko. He could be last drafts Fowler, Couturier...once highly rated pre-draft build up but fell down the ladder on draft day.

Who's this Erhoff kid? :)

Foligno is a nice young power forward. That's why they were able to deal Zack Kassian.

Blob I wished our Gm was getting tired of being pushed around in the West 19 got a goal and was on the ice in the final minute... Not how you start its how you finish and there is nothing wrong with scoring goals in this league especially timely ones

I agree this team needs a bit more chutzpah up front but more importantly they could use a strong offensive player to play on the 2nd line even when Kesler and Booth come back. I believe both Kassian and Jensen will develop into 2nd line playrs but they aren't close to that yet. I would love if this team had a bit more bite paddy, but they have to be able to play. I am interested to see how Vandermeer might do with Tanev on a 3rd pairing. He can't be that much of a dropoff from Keith Ballard at a fraction of the price.

As for 19, sure he got a goal but he was also very invisible for most of the game. He had to be dealt. He and his father were a major headache and the kid is a big league primadona. He will likely develop into a decent top 6 centre. Good for him. That said I will take Ryan Kesler and Henrik Sedin 10 times out of 10 ahead of Cody Hodgson. The kid was NOT willing to play and develop on a 3rd line while anchoring the 2nd unit pp. Furthermore he was unable/unwilling to play the wing. We had enough runts playing the middle for years with Ronning and Morrison. I am a firm believer that size + skill is needed in the middle in today's game unless your skill/compete/speed level is off the charts like a Crosby or a Giroux. Coho will never be confused with those guys.

Um correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't that the reason why we gave up a skilled, young, top 6 centre in Hodgson? To get tougher up front? Doesn't say much about Kassian does it

He will be part of the answer, but Gillis needs to add more tenacity, not just hang it all on one 21 year old player. It's one fucking game for christ sakes. When he does develop into a Ryane Clowe/David Clarkson type it will be drummed into your skull on a daily basis by me just for you shitting up the board and calling the guy a Sandlak clone.

PS how good was Clowe at 21 ??

Led all Sabers forwards in ice time.

1 goal, 7 shots, +2, 55% F/O.

Seems like a pretty good game no?

Not that it matters much though.

I watched most of the game and maybe I am picking on him a bit but to me he didn't have a huge impact other than a goal going off his skate. Maybe the tranny loving troll who flip flops more than a politician and acts like a 14 year old fan caused me to pick apart Hodgson's game more than I should have. I maintain when Kassian develops into a top 6 forward I will throw it in his face fairly often.

I'm with u Blob. He still trails the play significantly as his speed will always keep him from dominating.
Now Vanek...he would sure look good wearing the stinky whale
