October 26th, 2020 The Buffalo Sabres just can’t catch a break. Despite making the playoffs in 20 of their first 25 seasons, the Sabres only made it past the second round twice in that span, falling short of the Stanley Cup on both occasions. Later, backstopped by Dominik Hasek, arguably the best goaltender...

Sabres Prospects

The Buffalo Sabres have work to do before they can firmly establish themselves as Stanley Cup contenders. The team is in a unique situation where the roster has plenty of promising young prospects that are worth the team’s devotion but has simultaneously (and unexpectedly) shifted gears towards winning now with the acquisitions of veteran needle-movers Taylor Hall and Eric Staal over the offseason. Related: Buffalo Sabres' 50-Goal Scorers Failure to properly navigate the troubling waters ahead will put the Sabres in the notorious sports purgatory; wherein a team is winning enough to inspire local fans yearly only to subsequently come up short, tarnishing their draft equity in the process. To summary plainly, if you’re going to suck, it's best to suck enthusiastically. Unfinished Business for Sabres Management If newly appointed general manager Kevyn Adams rejoices too extensively on his signings thus far, he will be undone just as swiftly as those contracts were...

The Buffalo Sabres are expected to release "reverse retro" uniforms as part of the NHL's rumoured modern-day throwback jersey program. As reported by Icethetics, Adidas has supposedly created "throwbacks with a twist" for the majority of teams in the league to be worn on special occasions. The rumours truly came to life on Monday when an Indonesian eBay seller listed unreleased Fanatics-branded Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers throwback-style jerseys on their store that matched the exact description of what the reverse retro uniform designs are believed to look like. Related: Remembering an Old Friend - Buffalo's Memorial Auditorium With that said, people are now speculating that the Sabres' reverse retro uniforms could be an updated version of the beloved black and red "goat head" ones previously worn by the team for a decade between 1996 and 2006. Let's take a deeper look at why the goat head may be the newest addition to the Sabres' uniform lineup for...

While everyone was waiting for Alex Pietrangelo to land a deal last weekend, Taylor Hall stole the show by signing with the Buffalo Sabres. Hall is headed to the Buffalo Sabres. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez) Hall's one-year deal worth $8 million and the fact that he settled on a franchise that hasn't been to the Stanley Cup playoffs since 2011 stunned the hockey world and has some calling the move a joke. But, the joke is on who? The Joke’s on Buffalo The fact is, Hall made it known that his priority was winning. “Any player at this stage in their career that has had the career that I’ve had, 10 seasons, only make the playoffs twice, that’s really what I’m after,” said the 28-year-old. He also said he wanted to go to a team that had a legitimate shot at winning. Some wise guys have implied that Hall's passion must be for winning the draft lottery, not the Stanley Cup. Will Sabres general manager Kevyn Adams have his team in the playoffs or the lottery draft? ...

After snaring prized free agent Taylor Hall, the Buffalo Sabres have roughly $13 million in projected cap space. How will they spend it? "We're looking at our roster overall and we're working through each individual situation, but not in a vacuum, how the one individual fits into the bigger piece of all this. We're going about it methodically," said Sabres general manager Kevyn Adams. "I believe everybody is a priority and that's the way we have to think every day." Goalie Linus Ullmark and forwards Sam Reinhart and Victor Olofsson are all scheduled to have their case heard in front of an independent arbitrator in the coming weeks. Each player could strike a deal with the Sabres before or during a hearing - negotiations are fluid and can happen at any point in the process. This year, they’ll be virtual rather than in person. First-year GM Kevyn Adams has his work cut out for him. (Photo: Andy Martin Jr) Both the player and the team are permitted to submit up to a...

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
