Let's just dump and chase the last five minutes. Even though it clearly just gives it to Tampa every time. Ugh. Wings kind of deserved to lose after that 3rd period, even though I hate to say it.

Just bring on June already. I'm definitely more interested in a) the draft and b) seeing what happens with Mike Babcock.

The draft. Useless.

What I like about the NFL is the kids that get drafted at least play in the League instead of getting sent to the minor league teams like in the NHL and MLB.

Well, aside from the official confirmation of our new Eichel overlord, Buffalo still has a crapload of picks. So I'm just a little excited.

"WHAT?? BABCOCK IS THE BEST COACH EVER!"
Yeah, but he only led us to 2 finals, and 1 Cup (as much as I hate it when people give the coach all the credit).

As a Buffalo fan, I'd take 1 cup in the last 40 years, let alone 10. Give us Babcock if you don't want him.

Babcock obviously isn't the best coach ever (Scotty Bowman is the best coach ever and if anybody disagrees I WILL **** MURDER THEM) but he's a damn fine coach and I dunno who we can get who's better (though admittedly I don't follow hockey enough to know if there are good dudes available)

though i can see why we'd want a new coach in general, babcock's had a good run but it might be time for fresh blood. i at least understand the mike babcock hate more than the jim leyland hate when he was with the tigers
and that's the waaaaaaaaaay the news goes

Rangers actually won last night, so that's good.

Also, I'm hoping the Lightning can finish off the Canadiens tonight. Never really liked them.
