Well they can thank the flippin' Canucks. Two weeks ago, the Sabres came back after being down 3-1 at home and scored two quick goals with 2 minutes left in the third period, then won it in a shootout. Since then, team fates have reversed with the Sabres going 9-1 and Canucks 2-7-1 in their last 10.

Yeah watching them last night they are a good team with likely internal growth to come. Think they hold off Boston and get 3rd in the division and a 1st round match up with my Leafs. They pressure the puck very aggressively which is something I think has become the norm for fast teams and have the skill to convert the turn overs and the speed to cover for the misses when aggressive. Risto is a much better player when he is not chasing the physical game he seemed to be doing the last couple of years.

Patrik Berglund essentially quit showing up for work, so the Sabres are showing him the door.

You know you really, really hate living in Buffalo when you're willing to walk away from over $12 million guaranteed.

Not that Buffalo is necessarily mad about this, this was a horrible contract that St. Louis has been trying to dump for a while now.

Buffalo makes a surprise move, sending D prospect Brendan Guhle and a conditional 1st to Anaheim for D Brandon Montour.

Montour was one of the guys who reportedly made Bob Murray decide Shea Theodore was expendable in the expansion draft. And now he's gone too.

I'm not sure who wins this one. Guhle is a right-handed puckmoving defender who's only 21, there's still some promise there.

Montour, on the other hand, is 24 and is having a pretty rotten season...though pretty much everyone is in Anaheim. Argument here is that he suffered under Carlyle's system and should fare better under Housley.

The 1st rounder is conditional--it's either the one they got from SJ for Kane or the one they got from STL for O'Reilly...not Buffalo's own.
