Buffalo Sabres At Nashville Predators: Reactions

Buffalo Sabres defenseman Henrik Tallinder apologized for the pitiful play of the team following their 6-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.

There are any number of adjectives that you could select to describe the effort of the Sabres tonight. Choose your own. I spent a solid 14 minutes during the game watching my cat bat around a cheese ball that he found, and it was more interesting than this team.

The Sabres duo of AHL goalies in Matt Hackett and Nathan Lieuwen gave up 6 goals on 34 shots. Buffalo somehow managed 33 shots, but only one by Rasmus Ristolainen found the back of the net.

Personally, I do not have much to say. As Buffalo Sabres fans, we have not seen a playoff-caliber team in a few years now, and this current roster is the worst one yet. The team was blatantly not motivated tonight, not interested in trying. If that is how the Sabres players feel, how are the fans supposed to feel? I am having a harder and harder time every day finding people in person to discuss the games with, as most of the other Sabres fans that I know are no longer watching the games nor following the team.

I would really love to go to the game on Saturday to watch Dominik Hasek get inducted into the Sabres Hall Of Fame, but I am having a hard time justifying the money it would cost for tickets, parking, food, drinks, and the gas from Rochester to Buffalo and back – just to watch this sloppy of a lineup. I was hoping that the game tonight would inspire me, but I guess it was not to be.

John Scott spent most of the game on the “top line” with Tyler Ennis and Drew Stafford tonight. THAT is how bad things are right now. I am done writing this. Leave your thoughts below.
