River on fire this morning. Revealing insight about the handling of Mayarz while him and Rivet were playing together.

Gerbe should be in here soon to say something negative.

I really liked his locker cleanout interview...should wear an 'A' next season, imo

I like him as the retrieval/garbage goal RW for Eichel. He's what they want girgs to be on that line. Eichel needs a speedy sniper on the other side

Trade him and ROR and stink cause they only play for money draft Zadina and you've won the cup

Absolutely. Had similar sentiments as Jack. No feeling sorry for yourself. No excuses. Figure out what's wrong and go do what's right.

I really hope he gets in together for next season. The Sabres definitely need wingers and he fits into the top 6 if healthy and focused.

I agree. Would love to see him play with a little more nasty and snarl though. He has the frame -and I think the mentality too - but he needs to be a bit more of a pest

I told everyone this will be one of the worst contracts if we signed him

Everyone said I was overreacting

Guys like Kyle are not going to fit on our roster anymore we’re looking for speed

Maybe this is one of the core players he’s talking about

Okposo does wear an A, I hope he falls down the stairs and his contract goes with him.

I hope not. Not because I want to keep Okposo, but because I severely doubt he considers him a core player

Playing on the 1st PP is a 20'ish point per season privilege that Okposo may lose next season. He could easily play better next season and put up fewer points. I'd be fine with that.

I think it's interesting to contrast his interviews with RoR (all season, not just the clean out). Kyle has a way of presenting himself better, even when they say very similar things.

He's gonna be back. No one is trading for that contract and it's far too early to talk buyout

Doesn't he have to push someone down the stairs for his contract to go away? ....just saying

That’s a little over the top even for you.

Maybe just wish he retires

If he falls down the stairs and can't play again, his contract goes also. Just saying.....
