NHL Daily Dasherboard November 17, 2013

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!

If you feel a bit drained following Buffalo’s home-and-home against the Maple Leafs, you’re not alone.  We’ve been treated to two consecutive games in which the Sabres actually COMPETED (with the exception of the first period last night – moving on!), all of which makes watching them come up just short last night a bit painful.  Still, fans have to be more satisfied with what we have seen of the team so far under Ted Nolan.  They are still not a playoff team, but if they can compete every night and refrain from resembling the Rochester Americans, I think we’ll all be happy.

All right – link time!

There were 18 NHL teams in action last night – make sure you get caught up on all of the news here. [TSN]

With all the focus on fighting in the NHL this year, Sports Illustrated decided to whip up a collection of 50 landmark hockey fights.  [SI.com]  Enjoy this one!

Were people laughing at the hiring of Pat LaFontaine and Ted Nolan?  I didn’t hear any laughter. Regardless, this writer did, but cautions cynics to consider the fact that LaFontaine might actually be up to the task.  [Sporting News]

John Scott had some pretty priceless words for Toronto’s Dion Phaneuf following last night’s loss to the Leafs.  Check them out here.  [Puck Daddy]

There’s a pretty decent number of NHL teams who are not living up to expectations due to some injury issues.  Here’s a look at which teams will be dramatically improved once they get healthy.  [Bleacher Report]

Last, but never, least, I present you this piece that reflects on whether or not Ryan Miller will be traded before the Sabres hire a new GM.  [Hockey Buzz]  It also discusses the Scott-Phaneuf situation from the game.  Make sure you check out the comments section – they are always priceless when Garth writes.

Enjoy your Sunday, everyone!
