Afternoon Line- Chris Osgood On Dominik Hasek

“He had the instincts of a Wayne Gretzky as a goalie. Really, he was one of the few goalies who ever played the game who could intimidate the other team before the puck dropped. They didn’t know how to score on him because you never knew what he was going to do.”

-Chris Osgood on Dominik Hasek.  Much more on Hasek from Nicholos J. Cotsonika of Yahoo.

Rick Jeanneret Will Slowly Get Back To Work

BUFFALO, N.Y. (November 14, 2014) – The Buffalo Sabres today announced that Hall of Fame broadcaster Rick Jeanneret will rejoin the Sabres broadcast team to call the first period of the Sabres-Maple Leafs game on Nov. 15. The game, which begins at 7 p.m. on MSG, will be the Foster Hewitt Award winner’s first game since being treated for throat cancer in early September.

“The time seems right to slowly begin transitioning back to work,” Jeanneret said. “My doctors have told me I’m cancer free and I’m feeling well enough to get back in the booth, even if it’s only on a limited basis for the time being. The kindness and well-wishes from everyone, especially Sabres fans and the Western New York community, has been overwhelming and I’m truly grateful for the tremendous support during this process.”

Morning Line- Lyle Richardson On Tyler Myers

 I chuckle whenever I read people disparaging Myers and questioning why anyone would want to acquire him. He’s a big blueliner with plenty of skill and at 23 has plenty of time to blossom into a true top-two defenseman. Put him on a deeper club and he’ll shine. That’s also why the Sabres are leery to part with him, and why they’ve set the asking price so high.

Afternoon Line- Dave Hodge On The Buffalo Sabres

My thumb is down to the Buffalo Sabres' lust for Connor McDavid. I'm well aware that all 30 NHL teams would not hesitate to smile at the thought of McDavid in their lineup, but most of them would be highly disappointed if that came to pass because they won the draft lottery after finishing in last place.

Until or unless the Sabres decide to change the conversation regarding themselves and McDavid by vowing to finish as high as they can, they are to be judged by the comments they've made. Owner Terry Pegula has stated that the way to improve is to do what Pittsburgh did - draft Sidney Crosby with the first pick a year after selecting Evgeni Malkin with the second pick. Well, there are other ways, but I digress.

General manager Tim Murray is anxious to see the Sabres lose "properly" if they must lose. "Let's get Connor with honour" would be the rallying cry. The Sabres are probably bad enough to get the most favourable draft odds by trying their best, and so they should say and do everything to suggest that 30th place is not acceptable….even if that is the goal.
