Antipin and Sabres talked recently and nothing has changed, expect him to sign with the Sabres.

Some fringe Russian is not gong to solve all of those problems.

 

It sucks watching Fowler play so well knowing douche bag Murray could have had hm for a song.  Instead we got Kulikov and that was suppose dot be enough.  I'm so gad Murray is gone.  He'll get recycled somewhere because of nepotism an it will be hysterical.

Fowler or Nylander...sure seems like a nobrainer now, but maybe Nylander becomes a difference maker as well.

If the Sabres now made a deal of trading Nylander for Fowler I would be very upset. In another year or so Nylander is going to be a very good top two line player. I think sometime next season if he starts in Rocherster and with an in season call-up he is going to be a contributing player. 

 

There is no doubt that Fowler is a very good player. But by adding a few good defensemen, starting with Guhle, Antipin, and maybe Nelson from Rochester the defense can improve enough to being respectable instead of a major liability. 

 

Although Bogosian has been a disappointment by adjusting his game from being a banger to more of a finesse player he could contribute as a third pairing defenseman.

He's 19 yrs old and has played in 4 games.

I think you're selling him short. He sure looks like a solid top-4 D-man to most observers.

I get it, but he is only one guy.  The Sabres need about 8 more top 6 defenseman thanks to Murray.  So glad that idiot is gone.

Predators advance to The Stanley Cup.

They are a #8... Right? When was last #8 in SC Finals... Edmonton losing against Carolina????

GO PREDS... Blue & Gold is so nice! ;-)

I know it means nothing to anyone else, but I'm looking forward to a Stanley Cup final with Colin Wilson vs. Nick Bonino.  They were the two best players on an incredibly fun to watch national championship season in 2009.  Even if they're just supporting guys here, it'll be fun to re-live that a bit.

Botterill - I don't know who I want for the coach. We don't have a specific name, but there are guys I want to talk to #Sabres #CoachWatch

 

Botterill - I can't say anything yet on Antipin, but we're excited for the possibility. He's the type of player we need more of #Sabres

I hope Bonino scores just so we get more of this.

My son and I still say" bonino, bonino, bonino" every time he touches the puck.

He does realize that he can call people right?
