How fitting. Blues fan? How about Bruins hater? 

 

I don’t know what is going to be better seeing them win the cup or listening to you B word about it. 

 

Remember that dagger Toronto put in Boston after game 1? 

I'm casual...

ROR quit on us last year. Watching him play in STL this year should make that very clear to everyone. 

 

B.S.!   Don't conflate his honesty at cleanout day with the effort he gave while here--with a piss poor team surrounding him

I may be the only one who doesn’t care about  ROR success. He wasn’t a fit to move forward with the Sabres. So what, let him live. And revel in Bahhhston failure. 

 

 

I'm not sure how he wasn't a fit. That sounds ridiculous

Ryan O'Reilly is the first player to score in four straight Stanley Cup Final games since Wayne Gretzky in 1985.

How in the world do people hold a grudge against O’Reilly? The team around him sucked and showed no signs of getting better. I would probably lose my love for the game too if every night I played we lost.

They traded young assets to acquire him and gave him a pretty lucrative extension, then named him captain hoping that he would lead the rebuild of a talented young core.   

 

Instead he packed it in and sulked his way into a forced trade.   So excuse me for not sharing his newfound enthusiasm for a game.  Once a quitter, always a quitter.

Idiotic hot take. 

 

This fiction that ROR packed anything in in his final year tells me how stupid a segment of the fanbase is.     Look at those stats I posted above.    24 goals, 61 points (3 off the team lead),  15 PP goals (team lead), 1,686 minutes of ice time (highest of any forward), 1,273 faceoff wins (60%), voted second for the Byng, 11th for the Selke.    Those numbers were among the best of his career and only marginally less than what he put up this year in St. Louis with better talent supporting him.

The hotter take is that Botts shipped him out of town based on a 25 second snippet to reporters on locker clean out date. 

 

You do not ship out your captain who've you already invested $10's millions into, without something serious going on behind the camera lens.

Why do you think ROR was traded? He sulked his way off the team the same way he sulked his way off Colorado. Don't know how the Sabres would have looked with a center spine of Eichel, O'Reilly, Mitts, and Asplund, but I'm guessing this coming year they might have been formidable, especially with a coaching change. He's a good player, not so good dude, imo. Feel free to think differently. Personally, I don't believe everyone who disagrees with me is dim, but that's your perogative as well.

So, what about your hot take that ROR  "packed it in?"   Huh?    Don't deflect the issue by pointing in another direction from what you wrote.   

 

We get enough of that **** from the tool in the WH...

And where from your deductive reasoning did I mention that packing in referred simply to points output?  Especially, when I specifically referred to his captaincy and charge to lead a young team.  Care to explain his leadership qualities rubbing off on Eichel, Reinhart & others?

Define sulk.   He showed up night after night for 81 games.   He had over 200+ more minutes of ice time than any other forward.   He had the second best scoring year of his career and was the Sabres go-to guy in every critical faceoff or defensive zone matchup.     

 

And perogative is to ignore people who make up **** like these kind of posts...

So now folks who disagree with you are dim, make crappy posts, and ought to be ignored? You're a lovely fellow. Again, why was he traded? His play was not the issue. If you use your superior intellect you might discern I said he was a good player, so why are you quoting me stats to indicate he is a good player. I'm not disputing that. Teams don't ordinarily trade players like that who produce well and certainly not for questionable and generally poor returns unless they are forced to because of issues obvious or not. I surmise character problems that might be connoted broadly as a sulk.

O'Reilly never wanted to be traded when he said he had lost his passion for the game. He told TSN that last year at the World Championships, saying he was looking forward to playing with Rasmus Dahlin. His father reiterated the point on the Garden ice Wednesday night.

 

"His comment about being complacent with losing and we have a culture where we're not doing the hard work was what he believed," Brian O'Reilly said. "We've always told our kids if you want to find the truth, you've got to remove and point out what's false. And he pointed out the falsehood. There are false things and he called them out.

 

"He had no intention of leaving. He wanted to stay there and build it. But once something leaves your mouth, people pick up anything they want from it and make it into anything they want. I guess that's what happened.

 

We love Buffalo. I have the greatest respect for Terry (owner Terry Pegula). They treated him so well. I love the city. It was so nice to drive three hours and go to games. We were happy there. But they decided to move on."

Who are these "people" who "pick up anything they want from it and make it into anything they want?" Do you think the hoi polloi got O'Reilly traded? Either JBots is as dim as the other folks you have contempt for or there was a problem.

Interesting comments from dad.  One would imagine that the team captain would try to enforce that players worked hard to achieve the goal.  Isn't that a big reason for the big C on the sweater?
