Sabres - Leafs: Fan Chatter

Sabres fans, I regret to tell you that I lost a niece over the Christmas holiday.

You see, I went back home on Christmas eve to visit my family (Christmas day was reserved for my wife’s side of the family).  When my sister and her family arrived, I was excited to see my two young nieces . . . until the oldest of the two pulled out a fleece Toronto Maple Leafs blanket that she had brought to the house just for the occasion.

I haven’t talked to her since, and I consider her dead to me.

Okay – I might be kidding (a little bit, at least), but suffice it to say, I don’t like the Leafs.  Last year, I didn’t mind them, but because of their chippy play and obnoxious, troll-like fans who jumped me a few weeks back, I really dislike this team.  So much so that I want them to lose tonight.  No – not lose.  I want this team to skate off the ice tonight humiliated, having lost in the most embarrassing fashion.  A blow-out, maybe.  A butt goal.

No – an own goal.

How great would that be, to see “Princess” Dion Phaneuf score the game-winning goal for the Buffalo Sabres tonight by putting the puck in his own net?

Yes, please!

Childish of me, I know – and yet, I’m okay with this fantasy.

All right – let’s get to the good stuff.

Questions to consider:

1. Can Matt Moulson get off of the schneid tonight?  He has scored goals in his last nine against the Leafs.

2. What are the odds Ville Leino scores tonight?  (Check out my support thread for him in a little bit!)

3. Final score?

Pump up the volume, and make your picks bold and interesting!

    The most embarrassing way for the Leafs to lose: Stafford, Leino and Scott score in a 3-2 Sabres victory.

    • JHizzle75

      Ha ha ha and Scott gets the GWG!!!
      That would be awesome

      • Jes

        And beats up Carlyle

    • Richard Spalding

      Scott with the GWG, yes! Brilliant!

    • Richard Spalding

      And Scott makes you look like a frickin’ genius!!!!!

  • Jes

    What about a goalie goal Rich? Lol

    • Richard Spalding

      I’ll take WHATEVER I can get, as long as the Laughs lose. :)

  • Jes

    Sabres win 5-1

    1. I believe Moulson will score a pair tonight.
    2. Ville Leino will score tonightAnyone know how many goals Leino has scored in his career with the Sabres?
    3. As per usual Rich 5-1 victory for the Sabres.

    Hope everyone’s Christmas was a great happy time.

  • JHizzle75

    Moulson gets a goal. Leino gets a goal, so I guess my odds are 1:1. Lol.
    Girgs gets 2. Final score 4-2 Sabres

    • Jes

      looks like we’re both wrong today JHizzy

      • JHizzle75

        What else is new? Lol

  • Richard Spalding

    I think Moulson and Leino score, as well as at least one other Sabres player. 3-2 Sabres is what I’m calling. Sadly, I think the Sabres will win in a very conventional, not quite embarrassing fashion (although clearly, the Leafs losing to the Sabres will be its own form of embarrassment).

  • Dano

    Wolfdoctor might be a seer! Scott puts one in! Carlyle is beyond ‘ lost composure ‘ right now.

  • Jes

    Woooooooooo big John Scott with the goal. No matter what happens he’s my #1 star in tonight’s game.
