Sabres head West after fabulous start

Recommended Posts

I had a feeling this new coach was going to get the most out of this unit but I did not see this coming.  Out of the gates they are number 1 on the power lay, and do not have a regulation loss of yet.  Only 1 OT loss in Columus, after a valiant comeback.  They did a number on Dallas today and beating Ben Bishop is never easy.  Next up, at Anaheim.  Maybe a meeting with Ryan Miller who just beat Columbus on the road?  Montour is close to returning and Lawence Pilut is skating and almost ready.  The Sabres are loaded on the blue line.  It makes you wonder if they might be thinking of trading one of these many talented defensemen for another scoring threat?  A winger? Not sure but they certainly have the depth to do it.  If they continue to play like this no reason to think they cannot make it back to the playoffs this year.  Jack Eichel is everything they dreamed of.  He is a monster of a player.  Ristolainen is buying into the program and I was worried because of the trade talk and that not only includes Botterill discussing trading him but Risto himself at one point saying it might be for the best.  I do NOT WANT TO LOSE RISTO.  No way.  I would rather trade anyone than him, probably excluding Dahlin.  But so far they seem to be playing very well as a unit. Today vs Dallas, well they shut them out.  I do not really think it was Hutton as much as the team.  But lets give Hutton some credit.  4-0 so far.  Go Sabres!!!!!  And yes I remember the 10 game streak last year and the collapse.  But this is not the same team.  Or coach.  I do get the feeling Luukenen is still in the plans for this year?

The Sabres are pretty much the same, young team now with some more experience. Wouldn't give too much credit to the coach at this point, to be honest with you.

 

The Stars and Devils seem to be a mess at the moment, the Flames are very streaky. You lost to the Blue Jackets which on paper isn't as strong as last year. The Canadiens... meh. Winning the Penguins obviously was a good win.

 

Maybe 10 games more and we'll know more (although looking at your schedule, not he most difficult one, many road games though).

Btw, I think I've seen you spell Luukkonen's name in 10 different ways. Maybe copy-paste it from here. 😉

Great start for Buffalo, obviously.

Small sample size.
Lots of wacky things happen at the beginning of the season.

Many of which are not indicative of how the season will actually go.

I like what Buffalo has been building the last few seasons, but at the end of the day, until they actually DO something, they are still the Buffalo Sabres trying to be relevant in the NHL.
Part of the growing process.

As I predicted, the honeymoon is over and Krueger's starting to feel the early signs of pressure. One win out of the last 8 games. What's wrong & how to turn things around?

 

No one knows. But @Hockey Junkie, you probably want to share some ideas?

Hutton stinks.  That is the main thing.  Last night was the worsts effort of the year  Like they did not care.  They played well vs Ottawa.  The jury is still out on the entire season. It can be saved if they realize that Hutton is the problem
