JW - Seven Days in Spring


A Thursday night hockey game between the Sabres and Coyotes feels like a game that could change the fate of a franchise.  It could be more than that though.  Jeremy White looks into how the next four games could swing the fates of these two teams, and the NHL itself.
 

JW: Roster Building


The Sabres sit in 30th place, 26 games away from selecting one of the most highly touted players in franchise history.  It’s not the last piece of the puzzle, and it’s by no means the first. General Manager Tim Murray showed a bit of his plan last week, and the rest should come together quickly.
 

JW: Party Crashers


Well, well, well...what do we have here?  Is that a crowd of the Stanley Cup Pretenders knocking on our door, trying to get into our basement party?  Chatter around the NHL seems to indicate that several teams are ready to power down on Mission McDavid.  What do you say we all get to know each other?
 

JW: Scouting for the Sabres


Happy hockey season!  Yes that’s right…even though the Sabres season doesn’t feel like anything more than a march to a high pick, there are other games that you might be interested in seeing.  Last season I spent some time on the road with trips to Erie and St Catherine’s, and enjoyed it very much.  Grab a windbreaker, and let's roll!

JW: All-22 Review - Playmaker Wanted


The Bills loss in Denver was the latest to highlight the fact that the Bills are lacking an elite play maker at quarterback.  From the 3rd-and-1 slide, to deep shots that they don't take, the Bills offense is crying out for a quarterback that will step up and make a play.  Check this week's All-22 to see what's missing, and also to debunk the NFL conspiracy theorists.

JW: All-22 - Bucking the Broncos


Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos have three losses this season.   Two of those losses have come to Super Bowl winning quarterbacks in Tom Brady and Russell Wilson.  The other was in St. Louis as the Rams found a way to hold the high-powered Broncos to a season-low seven points.  Can the Bills execute the same game plan that St. Louis did? 

JW: All-22 Review - Bills/Jets


The Bills blowout win over the Jets came with a season-high five touchdowns.  It also brought out an awful lot of criticism for the conservative nature of the offensive game plan.  Maybe it wasn't as conservative as you think?  Jeremy White tackles that, Kraig Urbik's return, and Sammy's latest "WOW" move in this week's All-22 Review.

All-22 Review Bills/Vikings - Watching Watkins


In the span of one week, Bills WR Sammy Watkins went from forgotten man, to focal point.  Unleashed upon the Vikings secondary, Watkins set highs in targets, receptions, touchdowns, and yards.  Watching Watkins proves to be a lot of fun in this week's All-22 Review.  

JW: All-22 Review - Bills/Patriots


The New England Patriots made a point of exploiting the Bills inabiilty to defend Rob Gronkowski.  The Buffalo Bills largely ignored their budding superstar wideout.  How huge was Gronk?  How much was Watkins ignored?  It's all part of this week's All-22 Review with Jeremy White.

Jeremy: Sabres Preview - I Want Two Marshmallows


The Buffalo Sabres opened play in the NHL 44 years ago, as the calendar read 1970.  That same year, Stanford University conducted a world famous study on deferred gratification.  What's now known as "the Stanford Marshmallow study" perfectly showcases what it's like to be a Sabres fan this year.  The question is: Do you want two marshmallows?

JW: All-22 Review - Bills/Lions


The Buffalo Bills opened the Kyle Orton era with a road win, as he passed the 300 yard mark in his first start with the team.  Orton's game got better as the game progressed, while the Bills front four was fantastic from start to finish.  Jeremy White takes a look at Orton's efficiency, the defensive dominance, and CJ Spiller's struggles in this week's All-22

JW: All-22 Review - Kyle Orton


The Bills have turned things over to Kyle Orton for Sunday's game in Detroit.  Orton didn't play at any point during the preseason, and didn't work with the team in training camp either.  However, he's not too far removed from a solid performance in a meaningful game.  Jeremy White checks out Orton's last start in a bonus All-22 Review.
 

JW: All-22 Review Bills/Texans


EJ Manuel's performance against the Houston Texans has brought about a change at quarterback.  In this week's review of the All-22, Jeremy White looks into Manuel's struggles, the chaos wrought by JJ Watt, and what Kyle Orton has ahead of him.  
 

JW: All-22 Review Bills/Chargers


The development of a young quarterback will, quite often, feature ups and downs early on, and EJ Manuel's performance in the Bills loss to San Diego was most certainly a down.  This week's All-22 review from Jeremy White highlights just how many things went wrong for the Bills, and how the Chargers so effectively attacked EJ Manuel.
 

All-22 Review - Bills/Dolphins


At 2-0 the Bills are talking an awful lot about team balance.  In beating the Miami Dolphins, and more specifically neutralizing Cameron Wake, we're able to get a feel for what that means.  Wake was kept quiet, and Jeremy White shows how the Bills were able to do it in this week's All-22 Review.
 

JW: All-22 Review - Bills/Bears


The breakdown of the Bills win in the opener features a young QB making strides forward, a Bears LB victimized time and time again, and a stiff arm that might be even better than the one Fred Jackson used to seal victory.  Jeremy White takes you through Week One's All-22 Review.

JW - Poor Asset Management with Ehrhoff


The Buffalo Sabres buyout of Christian Ehrhoff has come as a shock to many fans, and with good reason.  It would appear that the Sabres just gave away one of their most valuable assets because of a fear of a doomsday scenario that might never come, and might never matter.

JW Draft Countdown - Four-k in the road


When Tim Murray steps to the podium in Philadelphia he’ll have a number of different directions he can take the Buffalo Sabres.  Will he go with speed?  Smarts?  A Safer pick?  Or will the Sabres make a pick based on an absolutely insane stat?

JW Draft Tracker - Is Reinhart the pick?


Do the Sabres consider Sam Reinhart to be a generational talent? Sabres Assistant GM Kevin Devine heaped heavy praise on the Kootenay forward.  Devine says, on playmaking ability, Reinhart might be the best to come out in a decade.

JW Draft Tracker: Could the Sabres trade down?


When picking at the top of the NHL Entry Draft it's quite normal to field a few phone calls from teams looking to jump up for a top prospect.  Should Tim Murray bite, and move down?  Jeremy White runs through a few scenarios.

Sabres Model - Artist Rendering


Huge projects have artist renderings.  Hockey teams should too.  If you're struggling with a vision of the Sabres future, dream with WGR's Jeremy White as he's laid out future...visually. 

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.

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?
