December 5th, 2018 As the Buffalo Sabres franchise floundered for years leading up to the 2018-19 campaign, Rasmus Ristolainen became a consistent topic of debate amongst fans. Doubts lingered (and still do, to an extent) regarding his viability as a long-term, top-pairing defenseman. His detractors were quick...

It's not uncommon to hear about players having a banner year when playing in a contract season. With that in mind, what Jeff Skinner is doing in Buffalo with the Sabres is approaching ridiculousness. After only 26 games, Skinner scored his 20th goal of the season on Friday and he's been the story of a Cinderella-like season for the Sabres who sit near the top of the NHL standings and are surpassing all expectations. Behind only Patrik Laine, Skinner's 20 markers put him second in the NHL for goals and should he come anywhere close to continuing his torrid pace, he should become the biggest ticket in unrestricted free agency this summer.  You wouldn't think based on his numbers, the Sabres would remotely consider letting that kind of player leave. https://twitter.com/BuffaloSabres/status/1068672064867975168 But... Unlike most players on pace for 80 -90 points and over 50 goals, the Sabres may be better served to trade their sniper, especially if he's looking to hit a home...

Buffalo Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres may have had their historic win streak snapped at 10 games Thursday night in Tampa, but over the past three weeks, they’ve won much more than games: they've won the hearts of their fans and a belief in one another. The matchup with the Lightning was never going to be an easy game. The Lightning are a very talented, veteran, well-coached team. They feature elite talent with Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov up front and one of the best defenders in the game, Victor Hedman. Not to mention depth throughout their lineup. The seesaw drama saw the Lightning have leads of 1-0 and 3-2. The Sabres held leads of 2-1 and 4-3. With the win, the Lightning leapfrogged the Sabres and now sit atop the NHL with 37 points. The Sabres rallied twice to tie the score and even took the lead with surging Tage Thompson’s goal early in the third period. It was his fourth goal of the season and fifth point in the last six games. Ultimately, they couldn’t hold on, losing...

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
