    None of this is going to change in the coming years. The Sabres three top prospects, Kennedy, Ennis, and Gerbe, all average out at about 5’7 and 165 lbs. Reiger doesn’t understand the importance of toughness and grit, and he never will. I’d honestly have a team with the worst record in the league that fought and battled hard, than a bunch figure skaters. I’m not watching this team anymore this season. But size isn’t even the main issue. I see no intensity in the eyes of: Pominville, Paille, Tallinder, Lydman, Spacek, Sekera, Hecht, McArthur (even though he didn’t play tonight). What makes hockey the best sport in the world is its intensity. I watch for the passion and the intensity. This is the least intense club I have ever seen. Those players I just listed are passion-less. Reiger doesn’t “get” passion, he doesn’t take that into consideration when he brings in players. His ideal team would be 3 Hank Tallinders, 3 Andrej Sekeras, 6 Jason Pominvilles, and six Clark McArthurs/Jiri Novotnys/Dan Pailles/Dominc Moores — they have the exact same temperament –they never get angry, never lose their temper, never express emotion, never scream, never yell, never look like the care. WTF. The Sabres are ruining hockey for me. I wanted to stop watching when Miller got run by Gomez, but didn’t follow my instincts.

    Stream of consciousness rant over.

    Can we just have Lindy come out and say that its obvious that the players have given up on the season and most are trying to play themselves out of a spot on next year’s roster? Because it sure seems as if that’s what they’re trying to do.

    Sabres blow lead after one.

    Yet again.

    Fire Lindy.
    Fire Darcy.

    There, I said it.

    Clean house.

  6. This team is broken. No heart, no grit. So much talent, yet with so little results – because they refuse to do the work required to win in the NHL.
