Kane's contract expires at th…

DALLAS – It's rare to get a two-on-zero breakaway. Rarer still is for it to happen while a team is short-handed. The Sabres want opposing power plays to know it can happen to them – especially when Phil Housley throws his most gifted offensive players onto the ice. While the Buffalo coach typically employs defensive-minded forwards on his short-handed unit, he fi…

The first month of the schedule is gone. And just like so many others in recent years, it's a bad one in the standings for the Buffalo Sabres. Saturday's 3-2 loss to San Jose dropped the Sabres to 3-7-2. They are seventh out of eight teams in the Atlantic Division, 15th out of 16 in the Eastern Conference and 28th out of 31 overall.

A 1-2-1 road trip, a 1-4-2 season record. The bottom lines for the Buffalo Sabres aren't pretty at this point. The team's uneven jaunt to the West Coast ended late Tuesday night with a 5-4 overtime loss to the expansion Vegas Golden Knights, a game that saw the Sabres wipe out a 4-1 deficit in the final 10 minutes of regulation. It was a mostly disappointing performa…

LOS ANGELES -- It was a tie game inside the final three minutes. A real chance for the Buffalo Sabres' first win of the season was at hand but they blinked at crunch time Saturday in Staples Center. Both on the ice and behind the bench. Drew Doughty's power-play goal with exactly two minutes left capped a horrible few seconds for the Sabres, snapping a 2-2 game and s…

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The start of this NHL season has been a career reset for Josh Gorges. For eight straight years, including his first two with the Sabres, Gorges averaged more than 20 minutes of ice time per game. Then his total last year dropped to 18:27 per game as he began to slip down the Sabres' rotation. With Phil Housley's new speed style in place, Gorges began…

The Sabres have given up 12 goals in two games. They have lost all three games they've played. Not surprisingly, there were plenty of questions from fans for the Mailbag. One resonated more than the others. Question: Will things magically change if ROR, Kane, Eichel say, “We all need to do better and it starts with me” enough times? Magic number? Answer: If th…

As the slogan sort of says, it's time to Sharpen Our Swords about the ungodly opening of this Sabres season. It's only taken us three games to clearly deduce that, in fact, it wasn't all Dan Bylsma's fault. Even though the denizens of the dressing room at One Seymour H. Knox III Plaza wanted you to believe backward coaching was what last season was about. Well, the s…

The Buffalo Sabres hit the reset button in the offseason, hiring General Manager Jason Botterill and coach Phil Housley, then making some roster adjustments. Sure, the Sabres’ six-season playoff drought is like a rounding error for suffering Bills fans, but the suffering is real. To get a handle on how the new-look Sabres are viewed by outside members of the hockey me…

Phil Housley has made it very clear all that's happened with the Buffalo Sabres will stay in the past. Ask the new coach about something that cropped up during last year's winter of discontent and he's not too interested in discussing it. Housley is taking the blank canvas approach with this team. Anyone can make a new first impression and that includes Evander Kane. …

Let's rewind for a moment to draft weekend in Chicago. Those couple of days have become a bigger swap meet for the NHL than the trade deadline, which has become nothing more than rentals on the move at often bargain prices. Evander Kane was clearly paying attention, knowing the chatter was out there he might be sent packing by the Buffalo Sabres now that Tim Murray was …

There's an old journalism saying: If your mom tells you she loves you, be sure to confirm it with a second a source. I mention this because social media can be a bad mother this time of year, a nexus of sports rumor-mongering and bad scoops invented by pranksters. The NHL trade and the NFL franchise-tag deadlines are Wednesday. The NFL Scouting Combine, one of footba…
