NHL Daily Dasherboard: November 22, 2013


Casual Friday, no less, from where I am sitting.

Skate ‘n Shoot Friday, to boot, which means I’ll be taking an 8 year-old and a 3 year-old out on the ice around 3 p.m. today.

What’s the only thing that could make today even better, valued Sabre Noise readers?  A pay check?  Christmas in November?

If you answered, “today’s links,” you are correct!  Onward!

Bring out yer scores!  [TSN]  Bring out yer game recaps!

One of the great recurring pieces on the web is the Hey, Ref! section at TSN.  This time, Kerry Fraser discusses the importance of calling  a game consistently, from start to finish.

Last night during the game, I Tweeted this:


Apparently, I am not the only one who feels this way. [Sports Illustrated]

 Jaromir Jagr made a little bit of history last night in what was a very entertaining game.  [Sporting News]

Reviewing whether a goal was truly scored or not is one thing, but the NHL currently has a flawed system.  Time to get real about reviewing goals, guys.  [Sporting News]

I always enjoy reading Rob Vollman’s stuff.  Here, he ranks the NHL’s top ten most durable players. [Bleacher Report]

Finally, your dose of Buffalo Sabres news.  Ted Nolan was not a happy man last night, and he made it clear to the public:  Buffalo Sabres players are going to play his way, or not at all.  [Die By The Blade] Got get ‘em, Ted!

Have a good Friday, y’all!

    Nolan provides me with vilification!

    “With the amount of talent they have on the roster (very little) this Sabres team is one that needs to outwork opponents to win games, and Nolan has realized that after a little more than a week in town. As for the fear that the coach will ruin the rebuilding process by playing all veteran and trying to win, he had this to say about the team’s leaders.
    “verybody’s telling me that the young guys are the problem – the young guys ain’t here anymore, so we don’t have that excuse anymore….That’s not the problem at all.”

    Vets arent showing leadership and they arent anything to really learn from ( for the younger guys ).
