At least we don't have the worst in Eriksson. :P

Big Looch is actually quietly having a decent year (37gp, 7G 8A). His production is pretty much the same as Hoggy and he has more goals and points than most of our secondary scorers in Pearse, Virts, Gauds, Sutts, etc.
When there was talk of Edmonton swapping little things for Lucic i figured Milan would've been the lesser of two weevils. Too bad they picked the other slug
What’s irritating about lists like this is that one paragraph on each player doesn’t really explain why they fell off a cliff stats wise

Too old?
Too slow?
Substance abuse
Poor coaching
Indifferent play
Etc

Be nice to know those kinds of things

I'm not sure Mick? I think Docker and Pinto are only listed because of border protocol. They are two elite prospects the Sens recently signed out of North Dakota after their season ended. I'm looking forward to getting a look at those two in NHL game action...

Sabres get their goalie back and they are 2-0-2 in their last four games.

Linus Ullmark- 7-5-3 .921 save pctg, 2.44 GA

The other three goalies, Tokarski, Johansson and Hutton have combined for 1-18-3, .886 save pctg, 3.66 GAA.

That’s astonishing really. They are a competitive team with Linus and a tire fire with these other cats. This goes back a couple years, though not to this extent. Ullmark is 6 or 7 games over .500 on that team while the other goalies have been dogshit. I’d say the Sabres need to pay this guy this summer.

shows how tight the market for goaltenders is
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Panther leading the league with Sergei Bobrovsky in net this year. But: He's 32 now and has possibly faced more rubber then any other goalie in the last decade. Florida better hope he ages well cause he's signed till 2026 at 10 mil per. / Great goalie, right there.. He'll be fine.

Markstrom on the other hand, :(

How a quality goaltender can change your teams mindset eh?^^^

Well he could be one of the taxi squad players.

Looks genius having Dipietro as the third goalie now.

Some folks just feel that every decision management makes is the right one.
