Re: Fearless Prediction for the Amerks Season

Our D has it all... depth, mix of prospect and vet, O and D... size and not. Not understanding the concern with goaltending. Wedgewood would be a concern if he were the Sabres starter. I have no concern having an NHL caliber tender here. Wilcox and Houser provide experienced backup. We were mediocre...

Re: Season Ticket Holder Site

Most hockey fans here 35+ grew up with the Amerk brand being about winning. Maybe I’m in the minority,
But it was a huge source of civic pride. When we have a long playoff run I’m confident people will come out of the woodwork to be a part of it.

I'm not an audio expert but it also seems like the big Broad St side just sucks a lot of the noise up into that end.
From my understanding - that is the consensus from multiple sound engineers that have been brought in.

Re: Post Mortems

All of the quotes from Taylor (and even the players) sure would have had more impact with us had they not flamed out so quickly in post season. Something nags at me....something was wrong somewhere in the playoffs. Whether it was being dictated as to who was to play and who sat...or just not readin...

Re: We are not a good hockey town

Good post Steve. I agree the atmosphere has been bad for a long time here. I agree Syracuse has a better fan experience. The biggest issue is the crowds of 1,000-5,000 in a 10k+ arena watching a bad team. The expansion/renovation created permanent issues. And this goes back even to 1999-2000 and 200...

God forbid a guy's primary goal be to play in the NHL..... :roll:
When someone isn't good enough to be in the NHL (or AHL for that matter) and doesn't work hard because he thinks he should be - then he's fair game for criticism.

I'm not convinced Ullmark is the long term #1 in Buffalo
I'm not convinced he's a #1 here to be honest. Buffalo needs to do some thinking for sure.

Re: Post Mortems

Benny--many of us weren't Monday Morning QB's...as you know. A few of us here were calling for Wilcox to play Wednesday right after Saturday's debacle. It should have happened and thats why I feel that Taylor wasn't in touch with what was going on with Ullmark. Was Taylor directed to play Linus (an...

Re: Crunch at Amerks Game 3 (last one?)

One final thing. Keith, if you end up going to their locker clean out day or whatever. and Sexton is there, would love if someone would ask him about the lack of reinforcements throughout the season and specifically his "right guys" comments from midway through the season. Does he still think these...
