I don't watch much hockey.  I follow it, listen to it on the radio, keep up with games and videos on twitter, but rarely watch on TV.  And, being a hockey simpleton, I love a great shot and I love one timers.  I don't know why they aren't used more often...............I saw one quick video on twitter of his first goal in that prospects game last year, and I said that's my guy!  

Because you need to have pinpoint accuracy

 

These guys are playing to win but nobody wants to get hurt. . The last thing that needs to happen is a player taking a one timer up top that shouldn't be and breaking someomes jaw,, again

 

So most players keep it low or wait till it's clear 

 

What Olafsson does is amazing

Great overall team win today. The D was stout and kept the shooting lanes clear, Hutton brought his A game and the scorers stepped up when it was needed to put the game away.

 

Hopefully, they can keep it going on the West Coast trip.

They don't shoot it because they don't want to hurt anybody??

i like they get this trip out of the way, then the Calgary trip out of the way early December...i don't like West coast games after Christmas in a playoff race!

 

Just saw Hutton post game describing Goalofsun.." hes got a whippy stick" !!!

They don't all try to roof it. I probably worded it poorly

 

You see alot of people keeping it on the ice because they don't have that elite skill to put it up top with accuracy

I also think that dealing Nylander for the Joker is looking like a straight-out Robbery for Botts.

All three of our defensive pairings are playing well. The coach smartly put together the veteran Miller with Dahlin and the veteran Scandella with Joki. What has impressed me the most about Joki is his poise. He is a terrific skater and passer. But the attribute that stands out for such a young player is his maturity on the ice. He never seems to be rushed and his efficient play belies his youth. The former coach of the Blackhawks, Quenneville, loved Joki. After he was fired the new coach wanted to go in a different direction. The Nylander for Joki deal was a terrific deal for us (as you noted). 

 

I am changing my position on Risto. We need to keep him. He is a durable big body defenseman who because of his extended playing time is  like a mule on the ice. 

 

The takeaway for me in this game is that all the lines played a tight game. Whenever a Dallas player got the puck he was swarmed. It should be noted that in every game we got good goaltending. Although this line wasn't involved with scoring I thought the Mitts line played well. Vesey was very active in this game. 

 

Olofsson made a terrific pass to Reinhart and Sobotka made a terrific pass to Skinner for their scores.

Did anyone see Son of Olof being this good?

Yes. Craig Rivet who is a former Sabre and a host on WGR's Instigator Show was talking about Olofsson before the season started. He was adamant that he was going to be a first or second line player. In fact he advocated to put him on the Jack line and move either Reinhart or Skinner to the second line.

Oh.  I'm not talking about roofing it - I'm talking about taking one timers...............Unless you're saying one timers usually go high.

Our two favorite whipping boys came through today.  Scandella made the breakout pass to Eichel that ended up on Olof's stick for the first goal of the game, and Sobotka made a nifty dime to Skins and then also won the faceoff that resulted in goal #4.  Krueger is getting production out of these guys!

Yea that was part of the point. One timers are hard to control and have an uncanny ability to rise

 

Players who can't control it don't use it often or make sure they keep it on the ice

 

Player's like oflafsson and stamkos and Ovechkin can put it high , low, far or near post. They can control it so they are put in situations to unleash it

Mission accomplished 👍

Dallas is not bereft of talent. They do have a lot of talent. There is something very wrong with that team. They showed no fight and heart. While the Sabres from the beginning to the end demonstrated effort and kept working, especially on the defensive side of the game, the Stars seemed to lose heart after we scored. In a sport like hockey going through the motions against a team that is working hard becomes very evident.

Just like their counterpart... the cowboys. I'm glad they both suck.

I’ve enjoyed watching these first 6 games. Hoping it lasts into November. 
 

We’re gonna lose sooner or later....hope these guys get right back on track (unlike last year when they folded).

..... How often does Buffalo start a season like this? May as well have fun with it.

 

The answer, by the way, is four times in 50 seasons. That’s how often — or rarely — the Sabres start like this. They’ve improved to 5-0-1, which rivals only the squads from 2006-07 (11-0-1), 1975-76 (8-0) and 2008-09 (6-0-1).

 

Pretty cool stat.

I think the difference is that this year the underlying numbers are okay, the goalies are not saving way above expected rate..and if anything the Sabres have been a bit unlucky in the last few games...as opposed to the streak where the PDO was off the charts, goalies were laying way above expectation, and the Sabres were getting lucky as hell with some of those comeback wins.

 

It kinka like how I see the Bills this year vs 2011..when they were winning with Pick 6s and huge turnover margins...that was last year 10 win streak team

Moreover, during the 10 game win streak, Sabres won 9 games with a 1 goal differential, with 7 of those in OT or SO.  In the 5 wins this year, 3 games were won with a 2+ goal differential.

How come i have never heard of George Babcock after 31 years?? Takes a puck to the head and then im getting stories from Biron about  how great he is and would give speeches to motivate guys.
