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.

Overall, the Sabres were pretty successful this week, beating Winnipeg and Ottawa, but losing an embarrassing game to Boston. To add injury to insult, Miller suffered a concussion from Lucic's hit. Though we discuss the game and the hit at length, our main discussion is about the defense.

This week, the Sabres went 1-2 against Philadelphia, Carolina, and the New York Islanders. It wasn't a great week and frustration with the team is starting to build. This week's episode is a bit all over the place with no planned main topic.

The Sabres went 1-1-1 this week in games against Boston, San Jose, and Pittsburgh. Overall, the Sabres played pretty well and I believe that they are improving little by little. This week we take an in depth look at the defense.

The Sabres went 2-2 this week versus Vancouver, Washington, Los Angeles, and Tampa Bay. The competition was difficult this week so 2-2 doesn't look all that bad, but right now the Sabres need to be better. One of their biggest issues right now is goal scoring, which we discuss in detail in this episode.

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 managed to do a little better this week coming away with 2 points in 3 games. The Sabres lost to Boston and Montreal at home, but scraped together a shootout win in Toronto. In this episode, we discuss the Sabres' biggest issues.

Well, the Sabres blew it this week. Just when we were starting to gain a little confidence in the slow starting team, they only managed 1 point against Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Dallas. In this week's podcast, we review team and individual stats from the first month of play.

The Sabres pulled off a much better week going 2-1 against Atlanta, Ottawa, and New Jersey. Unfortunately, the Sabres still did not win on the road and only managed to beat two of the worst teams in the Eastern Conference. In this episode, we try to figure out if the Sabres are really getting better or if they just beat some bad team.

SabreCast 3.02 - Initial Impressions (with updated link)
Monday, October 4th, 2010 1:01 pm
No, the Sabres have a chance to be very good this season, and they will be very good. Nathan Gerbe will be wonderful to watch, as will Ennis. Thomas Vanek is still on the roster and will surely recover from a disappointing 09-10 season. Tyler Myers will avoid a sophomore slump and will become an anchor on our power play, a position he has already adjusted to deftly in the preseason. Mike Grier will bring it every night, so get your 2010-2011 edition of the "Doin' Work Son!" shirt, and maybe get one for Niedermayer, who will be sure to be doing work all year barring injury. Ryan Miller will make show-stopping, game saving stops. There will be overtime winners, 3 goal comebacks, shootout victories. There will be a four game winning streak, just as there will certainly be a four game losing streak. They'll have a win in the 8-1 range, they'll put out a performance like the 5-0 loss to the Islanders last year. But I feel they will be very good, and should be favored, perhaps expected to win the division again, given the talent on the roster- barring the unthinkable injury scenario that I won't even mention here but is certainly in the back of every Sabres fan's mind. It'll be a long season with many storylines ahead that cannot be predicted now. There will be great Mondays after the Sabres win both games of their weekend, there's probably going to be some bad ones where they drop both (made especially terrible with a Bills embarrassment on Sundays). For now, in early October as the long season starts, we should just soak in the enjoyment of hockey being back in our lives, and that chance of something special taking place every night we watch, whether that something "special" is Gerbe scoring between his legs or Lalime letting a puck past him at five miles per hour.

Playoff hockey is officially underway and the Sabres are matched up against the Boston Bruins. The Sabres won the first game 2-1, but fell 5-3 in game 2. In this playoff edition of SabreCast, we cover those two games in detail.

My all-time favorite beard may be Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard, who posed for Playboy a couple years back, but in a very close second would have to be the Playoff Beard. Not shaving while your team is in the playoffs connects one to the team itself. Like wearing a jersey or having a flag on your car, but much more bad-ass. I have only been able to do the Playoff Beard once, the shaky playoff run in 2007 after winning the President's Trophy. Over a month of not shaving becomes noticeable for people like me, and after being compounded with a couple things (the Flyers finishing dead last, the Penguins being eliminated), I felt like the coolest cat on the Penn State campus. For those of us who have wives, girlfriends, or simply a job in which one interacts with people or wears a suit, growing copious amounts of facial hair is indeed a sacrifice, one made to show our determination for Buffalo to win a Stanley Cup.
