Sabres defenseman Andre Benoit started his professional career in 2005 with the Hamilton Bulldogs. He never got to the NHL until the 2010 season with Ottawa. He played eight games with the Senators and was never a regular in the NHL until 2013 when he...
Andrej Makarov did not look good at all in Traverse City and hasn’t looked much better in practice.   I wasn’t expecting much in Toronto on Sunday, but in the first period the kid was great.   He spent the first 10 minutes seeing...
EJ Manuel is making life very difficult.  Unfortunately he isn't making it difficult on the opposition, something NFL quarterbacks are supposed to do.  The Bills second year QB is making the Bills fan base squirm. As for me, I have maintained...
I try. Honestly, there may not be anything I work harder at.  Trying to avoid the fatalistic, here we go again, tragic comedy feeling that is a 14 year streak of non playoff football seasons.  It starts with me not posting on Twitter during the Bills...
UB Bulls running back Anthone Taylor plays Miami (Ohio) like he’s mad.   And he is, to an extent.   The Buckeye State native said postgame that the program rescinded a scholarship offer to him back in high school. And though...
We’re all familiar with Ryan Fitzpatrick, his strengths and shortcomings as a starting quarterback. But one thing he never had during his time in Buffalo was multiple options as dangerous as Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins. While Stevie...
There were only 14 combined shots in the first period against the Leafs, but five of them went into the net.   Michal Neuvirth didn’t get a lot of help on the first two goals, but he also doesn’t look ready to play giving up three goals...
The Sabres have assigned 11 players to Rochester and have returned two players to their respective junior clubs. Buffalo’s training camp roster is now at 38 players, 21 forwards, 12 defensemen and five goaltenders.   The following players have...
Pete Carges @pcarges550 So I know last week I made a big stink about how the powerhouse matchups are here to stay, and for the rest of the year you can press your couch down to the floor and scrape every chip out of the cushions as you watch...
Cody Hodgson gets his first preseason game tonight as the Sabres host the Leafs. Hodgson will play left wing with Sam Reinhart and Brian Gionta.   The Tyler Ennis line is back for its second straight game with Matt Moulson and Drew Stafford.  ...
University at Buffalo football opens up Mid-American Conference play Saturday at UB Stadium against Miami (Ohio).   Even for all the assurances that each game matters, players and coaches agree that this is when the season begins because this is where...
Thursday was the first time I got a chance to watch Jack Eichel play and I wasn’t disappointed. Eichel is a player mentioned in the same breath with Connor McDavid for next June’s draft.   Many players slow down when they get the puck, but...
Greg Bauch/Thom Cich Reporting Twitter: @ThomWGR     Mike Schopp and the Bulldog once again held an open forum for their 'Earth Sports Fortress of Pantheon' on Tuesday. The idea behind the creation was to gather the...
You can count me as one person that is in agreement with the way Buffalo Sabres head coach Ted Nolan is evaluating his players. The “eye test” is the best way to judge young talent, in my view, and should be the primary tool used to make judgments...
By Sal Capaccio Twitter @SalSports When the Bills are on offense Get in my belly!   The Texans are the 2nd worst-team in the league when it comes to rushing yards allowed per play at 5.18, and 25th in the NFL allowing over 141 yards...
The Sabres only got one shift out of Mark Pysyk on Tuesday before he left with an upper body injury. He didn’t practice on Wednesday and Ted Nolan said, “It’s not real serious, it’s probably day to day. It could be a week or two.”...
The third annual USA All-American Prospects game is in Buffalo on Thursday. It’s the second time the Sabres have hosted the event.   Highly touted Jack Eichel will play in this game and will be coached by former Sabre Mike Grier.   With...
As the game started I thought I’d have a lot to talk about. The Tyler Ennis line with Matt Moulson and Drew Stafford was buzzing and produced two dandy opportunities for Moulson on Anton Khudobin.   Early in the period Buffalo had a 6-1 shots...
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...
Attention Sabres players, A new season is upon you, and like most of the last 35 years I’m probably as excited as most of you are. A chill in the air, that sound of puck on stick, seeing my kids light up when SabreTooth comes to our section …...
The Sabres have confirmed what I started reporting on Saturday, the club returned nine players to their respective junior clubs.   Gone are forwards Joseph Blandisi (Barrie, OHL), Eric Cornel (Peterborough, OHL), Michael Joly (Rimouski, QMJHL), Vaclav...
It’ll be a more veteran lineup for the home preseason opener against Carolina tonight. Jhonas Enroth gets his first game in net since injuring his leg last March. Nathan Lieuwen, who played the whole game in Washington will backup.   Tonight’s...
We’ve hit the age of analytics in all sports. Some teams have resisted it, but in the past year several have embraced it.   This past summer our Matthew Coller told you how Tim Murray uses analytics, but Ted Nolan doesn’t think of it in...
The Sabres prospects played four games in Traverse City and now the big club played its first preseason game in Washington and so far, the team still can’t score.   Buffalo was shutout by the Caps 1-0 as a couple of kids messed up the only...
San Diego is good and their quarterback, Philip Rivers, is excellent.  That is not exactly all you need to know about the Bills week three loss at home to the Chargers, but it is probably enough.  Rivers had no difficulty finding open receivers and...
You know its not a good day for the Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium when you can only remember one time where a crowd of about 68 thousand people seemed really loud.  The Bills didn't give them much to cheer about in Sunday's deflating 22-10 loss...
A complete contrast of starts from last week to this as the Bills offense stuggled out of the gates, going three and out on their first series and only mustering 34 first quarter yards of offense. Meanwhile San Diego's offense came out guns blazing, as...
With winds at kickoff of 20 miles per hour, the UB Bulls powered through Norfolk State Saturday, 36-7.   By all indications it was a blowout as the Bulls improved to 2-2 (both wins coming against Football Championship Subdivision opponents). Against...
The Sabres didn’t address goaltending in the offseason because they wanted to give Jhonas Enroth and Michal Neuvirth a chance.   Enroth has spent his whole career as a backup to Ryan Miller and now he gets the opportunity to see if he’s...
Pete Carges @pcarges550 Rejoice college football fans, after a week of snoozers (minus one SEC classic) real college football returns this week with a plethora of juicy matchups. In fact, you may get so excited you just want to jump up on a table...

Josh Gorges had a limited no trade agreement in his contract. Buffalo was not on the list of teams he’d accept a trade to, but that changed.   Montreal’s captain Brian Gionta is from Rochester and planned to ink a free agent deal with the...
The Sabres reported to camp for physicals and team testing, but this year is different. Make no mistake, Ted Nolan was overjoyed to be back in Buffalo coaching last season, but it really did aggravate him that he had some players not putting forth effort...
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...
The Bills' 2-0 start has our attention, and fans everywhere are asking each other if this is the year the Bills do the unthinkable and make a wild-card game maybe to get run over. COULD THE DROUGHT BE ENDING? Five reasons why yes, five reasons why...
After three games the Sabres are 0-2-1 at the Traverse City Tournament and Chadd Cassidy has seen enough. His team lost to Dallas on Monday 7-3 and in the three losses they’ve been outscored 15-5.   Buffalo was trailing the Stars 4-0 in the second...
If I know Tim Murray even a little bit I think I know he is not at all happy the Sabres have no chance of winning the Traverse City Prospects Tournament. The best they can do is finish third in their four team division.   With that being said, it hasn’t...
What a week it has been.  The sweet relief some thought may never come arrived on Tuesday when it was announced that Terry and Kim Pegula had won the bid to purchase the Bills. Coupled with a surprising week one road win in Chicago, the great news...
On a day when the Bills honored the late Ralph Wilson, the best tribute of all for the only owner the franchise had known, was  a win over the team Wilson loved to see his club beat, the Miami Dolphins.  The victory and a 2-0 start to the 2014 season...
Fueled by an emotional pregame ceremony the Bills offense came out blazing on the first possession, as EJ Manuel hit wideout Sammy Watkins with a beautiful 28 yard hookup on the opening drive. The momentum was thwarted in the red zone though as the Dolphins...
The Sabres had won the first seven games they played in Traverse City, but starting with last year’s final against Detroit, the Sabres have lost three in a row.   Buffalo will not be in the finals on this year’s tournament as it lost in...
After losing their first game to Carolina, the Sabres must pretty much run the table if they wants their second Traverse City Prospects Tournament championship in three years.   Chadd Cassidy knows this and is changing the lineup including...

The game between the UB Bulls and Baylor Bears may have reached its expected conclusion, but tonight at UB Stadium we saw both the chasm that sits between the top teams in college football and mid-majors like UB, but also the continued expansion of the Bulls’...
Considering all the first and second round picks the Sabres threw at Carolina on Friday, it’s rather shocking they lost 6-1 in game one of the Traverse City Prospects tournament.   This is Buffalos third appearance in this tourney and after winning...
Pete Carges @pcarges550 If there were ever a week for you to spend your Saturday watching old Bills highlights, cleaning the garage or taking your wife out to go apple picking, this might be it. With the exception of one ranked SEC matchup, this...
When folks think of the Sabres 2014 second round pick, many think of Brendan Lemieux because he’s the son of former NHL pest Claude Lemieux. It seems like Eric Cornel gets lost.   The 6’2 centerman was drafted 44th overall after having...

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...
In 25 years of working in Buffalo/Western New York media, there was never a moment for me like this morning.  For perhaps the last 16 years, going back to the lease negotiations in 1998, we've been wondering what would happen to the Bills when...
Bills fans, you got your wish. Today reports have it that Terry and Kim Pegula -- or should it be Kim and Terry? -- are crossing the T's on a deal to buy the Bills. This means fans can relax about the team skipping town, a story that has trailed and...
The Sabres have announced their roster for the Traverse City Prospects tournament. This year’s number one pick Sam Reinhart highlights the team.   The first game is Friday at 4:00 when the Sabres play Carolina. Buffalo takes on the New York Rangers...
Some of the Bills defensive backs were kidding around on Monday that they should invite Kyle Williams into their meetings. Williams got his first career interception when he backed off into coverage against Jay Cutler. Williams said, “They should! I’ve...
Its only one win but did we ever need that! I don't know about you, but I was feeling pretty beaten down going into work on Sunday for the pre-game show and the season hadn't even begun yet.  With the long pre-season, the mediocre showing...
Well, was that fun or what?  It is so nice to be sitting here with a smile on my face knowing that so many Bills fans far and wide are feeling the same.  Hopefully you were able to keep the demons of blown games past at bay and reasonably enjoy the...

The talk all week leading up to the Bulls first road contest of 2014 against Army was the triple-option offense. The defense needed to be physical and disciplined; it needed to be ready for the surprise pass; and it had to be prepared for what...
Pete Carges @pcarges550 Yes I realize it's week one of the NFL season and everybody will be focused on the pros. But if you're going to be vegging out in front of a TV for 10 hours on Sunday, why not make it a clean sweep and check out some Top...
The Bills knew they had to address stopping the run on the off season. With that in mind, they moved Kiko Alonso to the outside and brought in a respected run stopper in Brandon Spikes from New England.   Spikes has looked good in preseason games as...
The Buffalo Bulls are off to their first 1-0 start since 2010 after a 38-28 opening week win against Football Championship Subdivision opponent the Duquesne Dukes last Saturday. Now, as the program seeks its second consecutive winning season since 1983-84,...

Nothing outwardly gets EJ Manuel down. The second year quarterback did not have a good preseason, but you would never know it by speaking with him. Even after the worst game, he’ll stand at the podium and say it was mostly positive.   Manuel and...
Soon the Bills will have a new owner, and conversation about who should make important football decisions for that new owner will get heavy. If the Bills don't challenge for a playoff spot, Doug Whaley's and Doug Marrone's futures will be big storylines....
The Bills offense was a train wreck throughout preseason, but the defense did a pretty good job. They got hit for a big play or two, but Jim Schwartz seems to have the starters playing at a high level.   Schwartz was behind right away thanks to Kiko...
So what did we learn from game one of the University at Buffalo 2014 footballs season?  I learned a number of things, although the first item I already knew before the game even started. Joe Licata is good.  Despite losing key players like Branden...

The events that unfolded on the Monday after the Buffalo Bills’ second straight loss all lead to one clear and concise conclusion:  This is Doug Marrone’s show now. There’s no other way around it. On Monday, the Bills made the...
The day Buffalo Bills quarterback EJ Manuel never wanted to face is here. Just 523 days after the Bills used their first round selection to take the Florida State quarterback, the very head coach that drafted him stepped up to the podium and announced that...
The move that many were calling for has happened in Orchard Park. Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone announced Monday afternoon that he has decided to bench second-year quarterback EJ Manuel, and the team will start veteran Kyle Orton on Sunday in Detroit....
They came, they saw and they almost conquered. In a cruel twist of fate at the beginning of the second half, the Buffalo Bills saw their 3-1 start evaporate as quickly as it took the 289-pound J.J. Watt to run the ball 80 yards for a touchdown. With so...
Dan Carpenter provided the first points of the game early in the second quarter, giving Buffalo the 3-0 lead and capping off a 67-yard march. Twenty-two of those yards came on a C.J. Spiller run putting the Bills into Texans territory. Buffalo reached...
By the end of the weekend, the Buffalo Bills could send some shockwaves through the rest of the National Football League by beginning their season with a 3-1 record. Or, the Bills could lose the game to their former failed quarterback, drop their second straight...
The Buffalo Bills will attempt to close out the first quarter of the 2014 NFL season with a winning record, but they’ll likely need to do so without a starting offensive lineman and a deep threat. After both left guard Chris Williams and wide receiver...

In the first three games of the regular season, the poor play of the Buffalo Bills' starting guards has been well documented. Both Chris Williams and Erik Pears have struggled in their first three weeks, as did Kraig Urbik when he came in for the injured...
With each passing day that Buffalo Bills starting left guard Chris Williams isn't able to practice, the chances for rookie fifth-round pick Cyril Richardson to make his first start in the National Football League increase. For the second straight day,...
The last time the Buffalo Bills started a season with two straight victories was back in 2011. It’s fitting that the Bills would be able to match their first 3-1 start against the man that led them to their last one in that same season. For the first...
To start off the week of practice, the Buffalo Bills had a peculiar addition to the injury report. EJ Manuel was listed, but both head coach Doug Marrone and the young quarterback said there is nothing to worry about. Manuel was designated as a ‘full...
The Buffalo Bills were greeted at the end of their 22-10 loss to San Diego by three new injuries to their active roster. The good news for them, though, is that they’ll likely have one starter that missed the Chargers game back for the team’s next...
Through two weeks of the season the Buffalo Bills had their fans believing that the preseason, which largely tormented them incessantly, was merely a mirage and that the team had more than what met the eye. That still may be true, but after the Bills laid...

The start to the 2014 regular season couldn’t have gone much better for the Buffalo Bills. They won each of their first two games, which gave them their best start since 2011. If they can pull off another victory, they’ll match the 2011 team’s...
The Buffalo Bills are off to their fastest start since 2011 and the defense is playing as well as they could have hoped. Many feared that when Mike Pettine left the team to become the head coach of the Cleveland Browns, that the aggressive and blitz-happy...
