Sabres movin on up By Tyler Wilson and Andrew Hallman (Sabres) On Sunday 30th April 2023 / 8:24pm
Welcome to the season of the Sabre!
The Buffalo Sabres for for the first time in HSHL history have made the playoffs AND even moved on to the second round with an easy victory over the lowly "Stanley cup winning" Club de hockey Canadien
the Sabres were very much a lottery team for the last two years finishing 24th and 26th until the dynamic duo of Tyler "The Canadien Crippler" Wilson and Christoph Andy "Almond" Hallman Took over (collectively known as the saBROS) they took the team and made them a contender instantly
the Sabres in both years the league has been active before this year had a combined 49 wins well this season they had 56 and were the 5th best team in the league what an absolutely astounding jump that is and what a testament to the greatness that is the gming of the saBROS
Congrats to everybody who has advanced to the second round its awesome to be in a league where nobody cheats so great job to everybody!!
Coming up next the Sabres have the Club de hockey Senator last time I met them in the playoffs when I was with the Club de hockey Panther I got absolutely dominated and swept and made to look like a damned fool NOT TODAY SATAN NOT TODAY
I learned a ton from that drubbing and will not allow it to happen again!! We arent looking to just win one we are looking to send my playoff rivals directly to the links FOUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRR (just like the amount of games we will win! get it?)

Good luck to everybody except those damned Sens!!
From Laughing Stock to Contender By Tyler Wilson and Andrew Hallman (Sabres) On Saturday 26th November 2022 / 10:02pm
Following an impressive offseason in which the Sabres brought in an immense amount of talent to play alongside a relatively strong existing core, the team appears to have righted the ship and are headed in the right direction.
Last season, the Sabres finished with a paltry 56 points going 26-52-4 good for 13th in the East. Through just 21 games this season Buffalo already has amassed 13 wins and an overall 13-4-4 record, good for 2nd place in the East and the Atlantic Divison, which some have pegged 'The Most Difficult Divison in the NHL'.
New additions at all positions are playing key roles in the Sabres turn around
William Nylander - Leads the team in points with 29 and has shown impressive chemistry on either Jack Eichel or Joel Eriksson Ek's wings.
Chris Kreider - Originally deemed a consolation prize during a final cap crunch when Artemi Panarin was shipped out before the season began. Chris has shown his value playing the opposite wing of fellow newcomer William Nylander. Kreider is currently tied for the team lead in goals and is 3rd on the team in points.
Colton Parayko - On a team with Cale Makar on the backend, few projected anyone would be competing with him as Buffalos most valuable defender. Queue Colton Parayko's music. Through these first 21 games, Parayko and Makar are tied with 13 points with Makar averaging 2 more minutes per game.
Connor Hellebuyck - A mainstay true number 1 goalie was much desired by Sabres fans and the acquisition of Connor Hellebuyck has proven to be just that. He is undeniably a top-10 goaltender who the Sabres hope can play at an absolute top level when the games count the most. He has put together a 13-3-3 record with a 2.23 GAA and a .923 SV% to start the season.
Buffalo has also seen healthy contributions from other new additions such as Travis Konecny (2g, 15a) Ilya Mikheyev (3g, 9a) Andrew Poturalski (2g, 8a) and Ben Chiarot (0g, 7a)
And while he is not a truly new addition, Jack Eichel has made his return this season and while some believe he's playing below his potential he has still shown signs of his prodigal self. So far this season Jack has 7g and 10a.
With just over 1 quarter of the Sabres season in the books, things have gone just about as well as could have been expected. The team intends to build on its early success and continue to build the franchise into a perennial contender and compete at the absolute highest level day in and day out.

We Still laugh at you, you just have a better team now though
Sabres righting the ship By Tyler Wilson and Andrew Hallman (Sabres) On Friday 24th December 2021 / 12:16pm
After taking the Florida Panthers to the playoffs as a top 5 team in the HSHL and Quitting to focus on my modeling career they are now last in the East and 2nd last in the league without me
Taking over the Buffalo Sabres for the almost two months I wanted to take paid time at work to review where we are at as an org and how far we have come in this little of time
the team was 2-13 when it got new management and since is 8-14-1 and being without the Sabres best player Cale Makar for two months, thanks to the addition of William Andrew Michael Junior Nylander Altelius who before coming to buffalo had 22 points in 25 games he now has 21 in 14 games and is the hottest player in the league and players like Teravainen, Eichel, Zacha and JEE carrying the big fat scoring load we have Makar coming back in a couple of days have unfortunately lost our fourth line C Isac Lundestrom for 3 months, playoffs is still not looking too hot this year we are looking to stock up on picks for this terrible draft with Casey Desmith, Anton Stralman, Hampus Lindholm, Jason Demers ON THE BLOCK
for our future prospects we have got some WJC Canadian Alternate captains Cole Perfetti and Jake Neighbours, Future 50 Goal franchise scorer Nick Robertson and the king of will he ever play in the NHL Vitali Kravtsov with 12 points in 15 games in the KHL maybe he should get a shot if you have a complete bum like Alexis Laflamme on your team you cant get much worse
William Andrew Michael Junior Nylander Altelius: our franchise player for the next at least 4 years
Cameron matthew fowler: Franchise Dman to go with our franchise Dman Cale Makar for the next at least 4 years
Casey Desmith: one year Franchise goalie till our franchise goalie Ned is ready to go. Casey "OTB" Desmith HMU
Pierre Engvall: Franchise winger will contribute for years to come
Timothy Winston Liljegren: up and coming Franchise dman likely to be a 2nd or 3rd pairing franchise dman next year and the foreseeable future
Simon Holmstrom: Future franchise winger
signed Craig Peter anderson, Austin Watson, Joakim Nordstrom, Kevin stenlund all franchise players
Locked up Marcus Johansson for two years
we also picked up a second and two thirds who will undoubtetdly turn into franchise players
K'andre Miller: the only player we will miss of all of these but when you can get an established no 1 D and 3 early round picks you have to give something up
Noah Hanifin: i asked 3 people who know hockey if Hanifin is good and none of them had any idea so to pick up super stud and hottest player in the league William Andrew Michael Junior Nylander Altelius we had to pull the trigger
Artem Anisomov: I did not know he still played hockey
Martin Kaut: maybe will be decent someday
Sabres 1st and 7th: losing a lottery pick in the "worst draft in 10 years" isnt that bad if you can get a young franchise player like William Andrew Michael Junior Nylander Altelius
