Sabres Targets

JW: View from the top


You say that this season of Sabres hockey has robbed you of your sanity.  You’ve likely felt rage, sadness, despair, and worst of all…indifference.  In exchange for your “suffering” you’re going to get one of the best 18-year-old hockey players in the world.  Jeremy White has a primer on this year's crop.

Simon: Sabres fans, the worst is over


That was not fun.  In the 25 years that I've been a member of the Western New York Media, I'd say this Sabres season was the toughest/worst season ever. 

JW: What's one more loss?


Tuesday night the NHL will reveal the winner of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft Lottery, and we know the Buffalo Sabres are in position to pick either #1 or #2.  How much of a drop off is there in that one spot? We've already seen 51 losses this season, 61 if you count overtime and shootouts.  How bad is one more?

NHL Draft Lottery first big event of Sabres off season


Come Sunday night, the Buffalo Sabres will go into off season mode and the first significant moment comes up quickly.  The NHL Draft Lottery will be held Tuesday night in Toronto.

 

It's almost over Sabres fans


You're almost there Sabres fans.  The end of a season filled with suffering is just four games away.  Its a season that will go down as one of the worst, if not the worst, in franchise history. Let's recap, shall we?

Bills future rests in hands of NFL owners


While we're all wondering who will buy the Buffalo Bills and whether or not the team stays in Western New York, don't under estimate the power of the NFL owners who will ultimately decide if the franchise stays or goes.

 

Have Bills draft plans changed?


The Bills trade for Mike Williams brings up at least a couple of questions.  Is it a good move? How does it affect their plans for the draft? Click here to find out what Howard Simon thinks.

It's a draft-a-palooza for the Sabres


Tonight's game with St. Louis got me thinking about the draft because the outcome of the Blues season will have an impact on the Sabres off season.

 

NHL draft prospects update


In case you were wondering, the NHL draft is 87 days away.  But the draft lottery is two weeks from tonight.  The Sabres would pretty much have to run the table to avoid finishing with the worst record in the league, which would insure Buffalo having no worse than the second overall selection in the draft.

 

Bills figure prominently in NFL rumor mill


There were two extremely interesting stories in regards to the Buffalo Bills this past weekend.  Click here to see what Howard Simon thinks about the idea of trading up in the draft and pursuing DeSean Jackson.

Ralph Wilson's legacy


When someone passes away, its  common practice to determine what that person's legacy is.  That is very simple when it comes to Ralph C. Wilson JR.  He brought the NFL to Buffalo and as long as he was alive, he made sure the NFL stayed in Buffalo.
 

March Madness indeed


What a tremendous first week for the NCAA tournament.  Double digit seeds pulling off upsets, a slew of overtime games, thrilling endings and amazing individual performances were all part of the memorable week. 

Sabres prospect Compher flourishing


The Sabres trade of Andrej Sekera to the Carolina Hurricanes last June doesn't look very good right now.   But that trade was all about the future and that future looks bright for JT Compher.

How are the Bills doing in free agency?


Through the first few days of the free agency signing period last week, my reaction to the moves from the Buffalo Bills was "meh".  It changed when the Bills added Brandon Spikes.
