Sheary drawing unfair criticism

Sheary drawing unfair criticism

Despite the vitriol that has been directed toward him from portions of the fan base, Conor Sheary is performing as expected this season. In phase one of the Buffalo Sabres’ “roster overhaul” this past summer, Jason Botterill acquired left-winger, Conor Sheary in a trade with his former employer, the Pittsburgh Penguins. When the trade was announced, a majority of Sabres fans were satisfied with the return. Just one year removed from posting 53 points in 61 games alongside Sidney Cosby, the 26-year-old represented a much needed boost to the overall forward depth in Buffalo. As the team...

Recap: Sabres Playoff Hopes Continue to Tumble in Sunrise

Buffalo’s inability to handle lesser opponents continues to stymie their playoff chances. The Buffalo Sabres dying playoff chances took another big hit on Tuesday night, courtesy of a loss in Sunrise. These Florida Panthers always seem to have the number of whatever Sabres squad they face and this time seemed no different. Throughout the first period, the ice very much felt tilted in favor of the Panthers, despite no score after twenty. Buffalo would turn on the jets in the second period and get themselves on the board first. Eichel taps a home a pass from Reinhart and puts the #sabres...

Sabres Bi-Weekly Review #9/10

Sabres Bi-Weekly Review #9/10

Back and forth play has kept the Sabres in reach Since the Buffalo Sabres only played three games during the last bi-weekly period, I decided to combine #9/10 into one write up. In those ten games combined the Sabres saw an up and down performance, ending up with 9 out of a possible 20 points. This led to another slight drop in their overall pace, bringing them to an empirically projected 89 points overall. As tough as that top line is to look at, it’s still (at least slightly) reassuring to see how much higher it is than last season’s line. The goals for and against...
