Housley Calls Out Sabres as Soft

February 16th, 2019 This season was supposed to be different. From the top to bottom, from Buffalo Sabres general manager Jason Botterill to Zemgus Girgensons and everywhere in between, this season was all about 'actions speaking louder than words.'

NHL Rumors

In today's NHL rumors, there are updates on the status of Jeff Skinner's contract in Buffalo and questions about what to do if he doesn't sign before the trade deadline. Meanwhile, the New York Islanders are looking to upgrade their scoring and one insider thinks they might be looking to an interesting and surprising name. What's happening with the potential trade pieces coming out of New York and is there a team interested in Andre Burakovksy? Sabres Could Take Chance on Skinner Elliotte Friedman was on Calgary’s Sportsnet 960 and spoke about Jeff Skinner's contract negotiations with the Buffalo Sabres. The two sides still haven't reached a deal on an extension and in a lot of cases, that would be cause to trade the scorer knowing you could lose him for nothing in free agency as a pending UFA. The Sabres might feel differently. When asked if he believed the Sabres would keep Skinner past the deadline even if they couldn't sign him, Friedman said, “I think Buffalo...

Buffalo Sabres

Forget about the second week in April, the Buffalo Sabres are in the playoffs right now. Sure, technically they’ve only played 55 contests of an 82-game schedule. Yep, they currently sit two points outside of the final wild-card spot in the standings. And admittedly, they’re the owners of the worst record in the league since the end of November and haven’t won back-to-back games since Dec. 11 and 13, against the Los Angeles Kings and Arizona Coyotes. Aside from all of that, they're primed for the postseason. If they could only find a way to win again. With the trade deadline nearing, now is the time for the roller coaster flip-a-coin, win-one-lose-one Sabres to start playing playoff hockey. From here on out, every point is critical and every shift matters more than ever. Giving anything less than 100% and they’re destined to fall short of the real postseason. Moral Victories are Useless The team's 10-game win streak in November is a distant memory. All of those...

Sabres History

The statistical milestone of 50 goals scored in an NHL season has been an elusive and formidable target. Those who have reached the plateau join an elite club. And while there’s a little bit of magic to the number 50, some players have risen above that to even higher levels. They’ve smashed through the 60, 70, 80 and even 90-goal barriers. There are four Buffalo Sabres who have reached the exclusive 50-goal club, one of them even made it to the remarkably extraordinary 70-goal level. Rick Martin: Two-Time Member of the Sabres' 50-Goal Club While Gilbert Perreault scored 512 goals, the most of any Sabre, he never became a member of the 50 club. However, one of his linemates did: Rick Martin. The left winger played with Perreault in juniors and was selected by the Sabres in the 1971 draft – becoming the second piece in the famed French Connection line. “Rico” scored 52 goals in consecutive years: 1973-74 (44 of them at even strength and eight on the power play) and...

Hockey Hall of Fame Debates: Rick Martin

Injuries are a part of life, and most certainly a part of sports. There is no doubt that if Buffalo Sabres fabled sniper Rick Martin had not sustained a career-ending injury he would have been inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame long ago. Martin would likely have played at least five more years... October 16th, 2017
