Hey there! Here's a quick little three things I'd like to talk about while also raising awareness for the need for the NHL to go to a 3-2-1 point system. Fun fact - Jason Botterill supports it! We'll start with the NHL enjoying its boring self, move into Ronald Darby's "Celebrational Awareness",...

So... Evander Kane's name has been thrown around in the trade mill again. Let's say it's real, hypothetically of course. New Buffalo Sabres general manager Jason Botterill has a big decision to make about Kane. It's the last year of his deal and he just had an outstanding season, even with the rib...

Stick to sports. I know. Don't worry, this isn't about Trump. But neither is this about the Sabres coaching search. When the music hits you and how it hits you can depend on lots of factors. Age, friends, emotional state. For me, punk rock changed my life. Mostly for all the cliched reasons that...

Jason Botterill’s introduction as Buffalo Sabres general manager featured a whirlwind of questions and answers. Here are the three stars of the last 24 hours: 3rd Star - Development Development isn’t throwing young players in lockers or shouting at them. Development is the part that comes after the...
