Latest Sabres

We can argue ad nauseam about goalie interference or toenail challenges, or about the inconsistency of the Department of Player Safety (Credit Due Dept: They nailed it with that 10-game suspension for Alex Burrows' dirtbag attack of Taylor Hall). You can say skipping the Olympics is a disaster, I can say I'd rather watch the NHL season continue to play out. Those debate…

Jason Botterill certainly wants to get at least a prize in the sky for Evander Kane. So how can you blame the Sabres' general manager for shooting for the stars and the moon?

Right now, owner Eugene Melnyk's franchise is about the biggest circus going in the league. After what had already been a…
