This morning, the Buffalo Sabres announced that head coach Dan Bylsma and general manager Tim Murray have been fired. Such a culling at the conclusion of a 33-37-12 season, a regression in the middle of what was supposed to be a rebuild, isn’t the most shocking thing to happen, but the timing of the firings has a lot…
Young Sabres center Jack Eichel missed 21 games with an ankle injury, eventually finishing this season with 24 goals and 33 assists, good for 57 points in 61 games. That’s a 0.934 points per game average, which was 11th in the NHL this season, just behind Leon Draisaitl’s 0.939. As infinitesimal as that 0.005 margin…

Buffalo Sabres forward Evander Kane grabbed two women’s necks, pulled another woman’s hair, and fought with a bouncer at a Buffalo club called Bottoms Up on June 24, according to sworn statements to police acquired by Buffalo news station WKBW.
Sometimes it feels like the release of each team’s Masterton nominee is timed right for the slow end of the regular season, just before the final few must-win games, to give the writers (who pick the nominees and vote on a winner) something to write and argue about. If so, Buffalo’s PWHA chapter wins for picking the…
Everyone on both teams was trying to downplay Connor McDavid vs. Jack Eichel, the No. 1 pick vs. the No. 2 pick, two potentially generational talents who have so far been every bit as good as advertised. They were lying to themselves, and it only took 22 seconds from puck drop for them to be proved wrong.
Dave Legwand was just trying to get this puck the hell out of his half so he could end his penalty-killing shift, but he messed around and zapped a goal past rookie Blue Jackets keeper Joonas Korpisalo.

Here’s a slice from the past: What appears to be the 1985 Buffalo Sabres sang an anti-drug song for the children. A nice person uploaded it to YouTube so we could all enjoy the hockey hair and awkward dancing.
Sabres center Jack Eichel, who, if Connor McDavid didn’t exist, would be getting more hype and pressure than any rookie since Sidney Crosby, scored his first of many NHL goals at 9:11 of the third period of Buffalo’s 3-1 loss to Ottawa. On the power play, Eichel floated around from behind the net, took a cross-ice…
According to radio station CFPL and confirmed by Ontario Provincial Police, Buffalo Sabres forward Ryan O’Reilly was arrested last Thursday and charged with impaired driving in Lucan, Ont., as well as failing to remain at the scene of a traffic accident.
