from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,
Understand, the beef here isn’t about Adam, Kennedy, Niedermayer or Gerbe in particular. It’s about management’s approach in general. The Sabres are hoping to make the playoffs, but there’s a big difference between hoping to reach the postseason and doing what’s required to get there.
Almost every move General Manager Darcy Regier has made since the lockout has been based on attrition, not competition, and money, not winning. The Sabres too often this year looked like they were going through the motions, much like Regier did last summer. Their awakening going into the all-star break could be too late.

A toast to those who shined last night (albeit 10:00 in the morning!) It’s time, once again, for JJ’s Three Cheers.
***A collective cheers to the Carolina Hurricanes, who rode a complete team effort, with five different goal-scorers and 11 players with at least one point, to a 5-2 decision over the Sharks in San Jose. Chad LaRose led the way with a goal and two assists and Cam Ward stopped 41 San Jose shots in the win for Carolina, who will finally finish a seven-game, three-country adventure after stops in Los Angeles tonight and Phoenix on Saturday.

from David Pollak of Working the Corners,
Actual news today: Both Brad Staubitz and Devin Setoguchi will be out of the lineup tonight.
For Staubitz, it’s because of an injury during a very lightly attended practice yesterday as a puck struck him hard on the right side of the face below the eye. It happened as he was trying to screen goalie Thomas Greiss when defenseman Jason Demers took a shot….
For Setoguchi, the problem is a recurrence of the same leg injury that caused him to miss seven games from Oct. 25 to Nov. 7.
Todd McLellan said Setoguchi would be day-to-day and it was too soon to know the extent of Staubitz’s injury; he remained here with the team and will be examined back in San Jose tomorrow.
TORONTO (October 8, 2009) – San Jose Sharks forward Brad Staubitz has been suspended for one game, without pay, for making excessive physical contact on an icing play, in NHL game #32 against the Los Angeles Kings, October 6, the National Hockey League announced today.
Staubitz was assessed a minor penalty for charging Kings player Davis Drewiske on the play, which occurred at 13:24 of the second period.
Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Staubitz will forfeit $2,590.67. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

from David Pollak of Working the Corners,
The fight began with Staubitz pursuing the Predator (Tootoo) pest across the ice. When they finally went at it, you could almost feel the punches up in the rafters as Staubitz connected with punch after punch, forearm after forearm. Tootoo got an excused absence from the penalty box as he headed to the dressing room for stitches and who knows what other treatments. He didn’t return until the third period, and even then saw limited action.
So was it triggered by anything specific?
