Re: Amerks get a little worse.

I'd assume they'll go after a goalie in the summer.

Re: McDavid says becoming a Leaf would be a "Dream come true

uh-oh----would the young man be another Eric Lindos?????? Doubt it. He's said that about the Sabres as well. Your comment reminded me: I've still got a copy of that autobiography Lindros and his agent wrote after stiffing Quebec. I remember finding a copy of that in a secondhand bookstore in Westga...

Re: Richie Incognito back in NFL. Signs with Bills.

Guy's got a track record a mile long of being a POS.

That said, it sounds like the Pegulas talked to him before completing the signing. Hopefully they laid down the law. We'll see.

Re: N.H.L. Trailblazer Finds Forgiveness in the Tip of a Pen

It started with the original MISL, where teams hit upon the idea of selling the party instead of the game (light shows, pregame music) and it worked at the box office… for a little while. But by the time the league crashed and burned, the NBA took that marketing style, ran with it to great success a...

Re: Amerks in Chicago 2/3

yeah--but I love getting my newspaper first thing in the morning with that first cup of coffee. Its a 'tradition' that has woven itself into the very fabric of my existence. (I also recognize, that it, along with so many other things I treasure...like no loud pre-recorded music at hockey games...is...

Re: World Cup back in 2016 with a twist

Reportedly the two extra teams were added because the NHL had no time to work out who Countries 7 and 8 would be. Apparently the 2020 event will have a qualifying tournament for the last few spots, like the FIFA and FIBA World Cups do.

Re: Memories....and Perhaps A Lesson

That 1996 playoff run is arguably one of my favorite periods as a sports fan. A friend was able to go to Game 7, then show up the next day at school exhausted. He was nice enough to snag me a program. I'd also argue that the team's coverage benefited then because the local media market hadn't splint...

Re: Tanking or trying? Sabres answer

Well done and level-headed piece. Certainly better than similar pieces, which made me want to burn my MA Journalism degree. (Looking at you, Puck Daddy.)

Re: So Much Negativity...

Long time lurker (I'm a refugee from the Rochester Sports Fan forums, shows how long I`ve let this account lapse) and one of those who goes to at most 2-3 games a year. I'm okay with the negativity because it's deserved. If they were better, it'd come across as nitpicky. But in this case? Gripe away...
