The Sabres had ANOTHER mediocre week, losing to the Ottawa Senators in OT, beating the Toronto Maple Leafs in the final game of the home stand, and then suffering an embarrassing loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on the road. And yes, the injury bug continues...

The Sabres had a very interesting week, playing a tough, physical game against Boston and losing in the shootout, then getting blown out by Columbus, and finally crushing Washington the following night. On top of all that, the Sabres also suffered a number of injuries leading to several call-ups.

The Sabres had an all right week beating Montreal and Carolina, but losing to New Jersey and Phoenix. We're now 2o games into the season so in this episode, we rate each player's play up to this point.

This was a pretty interesting week. The Sabres got off to a bad start against Philly seeing Ryan Miller get pulled and Jhonas Enroth getting the next two starts. Overall, the Sabres went 2-1, losing to the Flyers, but beating the Flames and Senators with Enroth in net.

Despite playing pretty well each game, the Sabres had a bit of a tough week going just 1-2 against Tampa Bay, Columbus, and Florida. The top line was stellar as usual and the Boyes-Ellis-McCormick unit was a surprise hit, but Sabres were only able to pull off one win at home.

I’m fighting back against that reflex, that everything is going to go wrong and while it is difficult, something that has been beaten into me for two decades, I’m going to appreciate what my eyes are seeing on a nightly basis. I’m also not going to repeat my mistakes from the 2006-2007 season where after winning ten in a row, I was irritated after we lost our eleventh game. It was silly, I couldn’t win and really, isn’t the whole point of being a fan to enjoy it? Really, I’m so used to focusing on the problems, the weaknesses of a team that it’s difficult for me to write about a great team without sounding like a 12 year old girl gushing about Justin Beiber. But here are some thoughts about the Sabres 5-1 start to the season:

The Sabres closed out the last week of the season going 3-0 versus Tampa Bay, Philadelphia, and Columbus. With the win over Philadelphia, they clinched the 7th place seed in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Ironically, the game was also a preview of the upcoming playoff matchup.

As the 2010-2011 campaign heads into it's final two games, I find it impossible to call this season anything other than the greatest regular season in recent memory, at least it has been in my nearly two-decades long run of following this team. When I say "greatest," I think you all know what I mean. This has nothing to do with wins and losses, although those certainly play a role, it has to do with the ride, with the storylines, with characters revealing themselves as something we thought they would never be, with heroic characters entering the stage at exactly the right time, the time when we needed them most. Consider the following: -The team started the season 3-9-2 and found itself not only at the bottom of the standings, but at the bottom of ESPN.com's power rankings. I remember the line after the teams position was "Oh-No-Buff-a-lo."

The Sabres had a decent week, claiming the 7th place spot in the Eastern Conference while going 2-2 against Pittsburgh, Boston, Philly, and Ottawa.

The Sabres put together one of their best weeks of the season going 3-0-1 against the New York Rangers, Carolina, Philadelphia, and Minnesota (all of which were on the road) to propel themselves into the 8th place spot in the East.

The trade deadline is now little more than a week away. In our main discussion, we take a look at the Sabres and review their options in the coming week.

The Sabres had another successful week going 2-0-1 against Tampa Bay, Florida, and the New York Islanders. Drew Stafford had a big week as well, scoring two hat tricks and thus earning a spot as the subject of our main discussion.

It's been a trying first quarter of the season to be a Sabres fan. I purchased NHL Gamecenter at the beginning of the season so I could catch every game from my current location in Northern New England and felt like I had been taken by the NHL like Peter was by that volcano insurance salesman in an episode of "Family Guy." I was left to brainstorm of bandwagons that I could join on to make the purchase somewhat less fiscally irresponsible (I've ALWAYS loved the Flames, I swear!) before grudgingly acknowledging that Bettman had won yet another round. The team had played over a month without winning a game at home, had put up a 3-9-2 record, found itself in dead last in the league and the talk had grown louder than a whisper that Lindy's time in Buffalo was up (more on that later). The problem wasn't just that they were losing- every team hits rough patches, although the beginning of the year certainly focuses more attention upon that- it was how they were losing. That always seems to be the complaint about this collection, especially in a market as hockey educated as this one. While Tim Connolly's dogging it could go undiscovered for months or years in a place like Atlanta, Tampa or Sunshine (the alligator infested swamp the Panthers stuck their arena), it was only a few weeks before someone hung up the most fitting banner seen at HSBC in years. Their performance was an affront to all those that paid money to see them play, to those who tune in every game and whose days are better or worse based on their performance. We were all beginning to settle in for the longest winter imaginable, one in which the Sabres were irrelevant.

In this episode we break down what the Sabres are doing well and what they still need to do better.

The Sabres are just wrapping up their preseason games and have shaved down their roster to a slim 26 players. They need to be down to 23 before the start of the regular season. In this episode of SabreCast (which we are calling the first episode of season three or 3.01), we breakdown the final [...]
