Can we get a trade / move already! Even if it is small, maybe it will help jump start the team!

I was shocked to read that Harrington article today.

His contrarianism takes odd forms. I agree with him, though.

Nicely done as always. The Sabres are who we thought they would be..... I am done getting upset with them. They need a lot of holes filled this summer, Hopefully Jbotts can work some magic.

I won't read anything he puts out there

He is useless IMO

Even if I would agree with him I wouldn't read it

His act was old 5 years ago and somehow he is still employed

didn't reed the article, just saw his tweets from last night...was a huge social media gap for me between the end of the game and when I first saw that quote about sabres being only two points out...was refreshing to see that

I'm disappointed in the start to this home-stand especially losing the Carolina game due to the implications, but in reality Chicago has somewhat revived themselves lately, and Winnipeg is no slouch.

Forward Myles Powell recalled by Amerks. Are there a bunch of Rochester forwards that are injured? Interesting...

Like at this point I dont care, just do something. Just send someone down and back up each game if they have to. As long as it injects some life into the bottom 6.

If people were tweeting to him in mass numbers about how the Sabres are only 2 points out, he would have written an article today about how we have lowered our standards. Whichever way the wind blows, he points his narrative against the headwind with two middle fingers in the air

Sabres have to win home games, period. They played well enough to win. This team was basically in last place the last 4 years and finally have made strides but still need more and more time.
Sobotka, Sheary, Pommer and half the defense can move on. if you play who would you rather have, not many of these guys should stay. Okposo has been talked about enough. At his salary, not much we can do.
I fail to some since I favor Zemgus and Johan as solid 4th liners. They play down low and gritty. For the cost, I keep them.
Skinner is 8 mil max for 8 years. I said this before, compare him to E. Kane and his numbers are almost the exact same. Skinner is better teammate and plays into our offense better. Kane does some PK and 53 doesn't.
Bogo can be replaced as shown last game. He should be traded while he is healthy. He is not a long term player on this team. We should get a solid return for him now. Beaulieu is worth a pick.

I don't do Twitter, FB, etc., but I'm not sucking up when I say your stuff is infinitely more reed-able and narratively consistent than the hot take machine that is Harrington.

The man is the biggest tool in Buffalo sports. One of the TBN writers actually told me they left in part because of him. That's how big of a poopbag he is.

Vogel rips him apart any chance he gets...

Says all you need to know about him as a person

I have met Vogel a few times back when I lived in Buffalo, he is a cool dude

according to the athletic skinner still has his full no move clause.

"The real question now is what happens with Jeff Skinner. But unlike Stone and Duchene in Ottawa, Skinner has a full no-move, no-trade. Remember that he waived it specifically for the trade to Buffalo last summer. So I mean, while it would be nice for the organization and probably the player to have the extension done before Feb. 25, unless Skinner wants a change of scenery, which we doubt, then there’s not as much urgency surrounding the deadline as far as whether Skinner signs or not."

There's urgency. All we've heard was that there's mutual interest to get a contract done.. but if that's not the case, they have to ask him to waive. It's a Tavares-esq situation. Islanders got nothing for him. I don't want to be the Islanders. I also don't want to trade him.
