    As much as I like O'Rielly's grit and puck control around the boards, he is just too slow to be a top two line guy. I would try to trade him to the coyotes for a 1st round pick. Then I would look to deal Okoposo to another crappy bottom 5 team for their 1st round pick. They are both good NHL players but truth be told they are too slow to be effective.
    Maybe in the playoff's where more banging and scrappy play occurs they could thrive but we are not even close to sniffing the playoff's with these slow players.

    Jack needs to sit a game or two, he is not playing team hockey. He is a give away machine trying to do it all

    Watching the past couple of games, they are getting chances, just not finishing them. This makes me feel that the "system" is working, but the players on the ice aren't skilled enough finishers to take advantage of their opportunities.

    Lehner is a bust, we have 6-8 players that need to go ASAP! How can Eichel get goals and assists when he is playing on a different level ?
    Eichel has no players on his line that are even close to his skill level!

    This team just sucks. Trade everyone but wooly(Eichel). Lehner just sucks. And his goalie paint scheme annoys me even more. I'm sure it stands for something positive but it just looks like shit. There's no full effort the just play to play. Call up the players who want to play.

    Lehner is so out of position on most of his goals, he should be sent down to Rochester. But, since he can't, get rid of his ass and bring Ullmark up!

    I want Ullmark and the rest of the young Rochester kids to learn how to win and be successful professional players. Right now it's a positive environment there. Don't bring them up and risk their understanding of a winning culture.

    Let the Sabres sink, the Amerks flourish and then bring'em all up next season.
