SABRES RUMORS & GOSSIP

.@SabresStats: Faceoffs Don’t Matter. Or do they?

So far this season, the Sabres have managed to win 41.7% of the faceoffs that they have taken.  That’s the worst in the NHL on the young season, and it’s not even close.  Florida currently sits in 29th place, just ahead of Buffalo, at 46.2%.  In fact, the worst full season win percentage in the last 16 seasons was 44.1% by the Tampa Bay Lightning during the 1997-98 season...

Sabres’ Reinhart to watch Saturday

Buffalo Sabres rookie Sam Reinhart will be a healthy scratch tonight when the Boston Bruins visit. Reinhart, who suited up in the Sabres first five games, is a minus-1 with two shots on goal while averaging 10:26 in time on ice. “It’s one of those things. He’s a young player that’s still learning,” Sabres coach Ted Nolan told NHL.com. “So we’ll let him watch a game...

Sabres demote defensemen Jake McCabe, Mark Pysyk to AHL

  The Buffalo Sabres have assigned defensemen Jake McCabe and Mark Pysyk to their American Hockey League affiliate in Rochester. The moves do not come as a surprise after both players opened the season on the Sabres' injured list. Pysyk sustained what the team called an ''upper body'' injury during a 2-0 preseason win over Carolina on Sept. 23. McCabe was sidelined...

Forget Ebola, Post Traumatic Sabres Syndrome Hits Home by @Buffalogal

As Nas said: You can hate me now. This post may not get a lot of warm and fuzzy reactions because of #embracethetank and the #onebuffalo launch. However, it may be an underrepresented representation of how a sector of the Sabres Fan population feels. We are burnt out. We have been trampled. We have been almost forgotten. We have PTSS—or Post Traumatic Sabres Syndrome. The past...

Sam Reinhart should be returned to juniors

We’re only a handful of games into the 2014-15 season, so it’s probably too early to make judgments about most things. That said, after four games it’s pretty clear that Buffalo Sabres top pick Sam Reinhart needs to be returned to his junior team.

Here’s a fun comparison between Steven Stamkos and the Buffalo Sabres

Earlier we discussed the Buffalo Sabres and their poor effort (to say the least) against the Anaheim Ducks which resulted in only 12 total shots. You don’t really need to juxtapose their laughable performance with anything to understand just how bad it was, but we were provided with a comparison too good to pass up. Steven Stamkos recorded a hat trick in an impressive 7-1 win by...

Buffalo coach Ted Nolan describes Sabres as a “pewee team”

The Buffalo Sabres are off to a horrid start in 2014-15 and fans are already questioning whether the team will be able to improve on their ugly 21-51-10 record from last season. So far, the Sabres have barely looked competitive and have lost 3-1, 6-2 and 5-1. The team’s most recent defeat to Anaheim led to coach Ted Nolan commenting on the state of his club. "That was like...

. @SabresStats: Setting The Tone

Remember when the Sabres started the 2006-07 season with 10 straight victories?  They outscored their opponents 49-23 in those 10 games.  They never looked back and rode that momentum all the way to the Presidents Cup.  That was a different team and a different time.  Only Drew Stafford and Patrick Kaleta (who only played 7 games that year) remain from that team. Last year...
