One of my favorite players, David Perron, did a very nice job all through the playoffs... I’m glad he’s got his name on the cup, just wish it was with my Knights

 

Hear that.

 

Its been quite the drought for those Knights.

Its always someone else's fault when the team sucks... never the ineptitude of PSE. The hockey franchise is a tire fire. 

 

Since Day 1, right off the bus.

We are having a party this weekend celebrating Boston loosing the cup on home ice. Going out on the pontoon boat on Fox lake and getting totally messed up. An occasion like Boston losing game 7 on home ice NEEDS to be celebrated this weekend.

 

Make sure there’s plenty of life preservers to go around.

I never said that it was his fault.  Go back and read my post again.  He played excellent for us but the hard times proved to be too hard for him to handle.  He needed to leave because the leadership role wore him down to the point he lost his love of the game during the season.

LOL, didn't mention a drought, but I get your point... there does seem to be a bit of animosity on these boards towards my Knights. Is it because we have a far louder/better/superior arena experience on a weekday game than the Sabres can muster on their best weekend? I was on the BBMB for years saying how Vegas was starved for a professional team, and whichever sport gets here first will have a ravenous fan base. You can't go anywhere around Vegas without seeing Golden Knights gear (literally everywhere). I am a lifelong Bills fan, born and raised in Vegas. I get the passion that comes with being loyal with a team through thick and thin, especially through 17 years of a playoff drought. But this city's passion for the golden knights is not for show... At the school I teach at, every other room has Golden Knights decor all over.

 

They are my Knights, just as the Bills are My Bills. My passion for both teams is unwavering. Though, It is quite fun to see a little jealousy in the snarky remarks from others, when I wasn't being snarky to them. So again, Yes, My Knights, and don't let your Sabre inferiority complex make you a turd... It is unbecoming.

Happy to see a city that lost it's NFL team to greed win another major championship, and beat Boston while doing it.

He needed to leave? 

 

Why do people constantly think this? He doesn't have a choice in the matter. He's under contract. If he's not happy, tough *****.

ROR couldn't handle the responsibility of being a leader on a team that needed to grow.  It caused him to lose his love for the game at times during the season.  He was also insanely jealous of Eichel and didn't want to sit in the back seat.  

 

ROR is a petulant child that showed his true character in Buffalo.  He's soft and quits when the going gets tough.   He needed a place like St. Louis where his faults weren't needed. 

Yeah, that's a perfect way to describe the guy who just won the Conn Smythe Trophy and played the last 2 rounds with a cracked rib.  Soft quitter.

 

Any Sabres' fan who complains about ROR's comments is a hypocrite.  We're all sick of the damn losing.

It's not always about opinion at some point - I said he needed to leave and he in fact left.  

 

You have issue with taking facts and trying to build an understanding of why things happen and then opinions come from that.  Some fans think his last two interviews were the final straw and those are trade able words he used.   Some don't think so - fine there's the debate.  

 

I happen to agree that he needed, should, had to, possibly might need to go.  Others listen to what he said and appreciate his honesty and all kinds of other reasons.

Well, I guess if you call losing in the finals "one team down".  Where have the Sabres been since the final game of the regular season?
