i keep a close eye on our former players and whilst Val is having a good season and Jiri so so, poor old Ville played his 50th game of the season the other night and still hasnt scored!! His 12 helpers  is his sum total to date. In 37 games ex Wing Matt Ellis has 3+2 on the Sabres roster.

Fil has 11 points the last 7 games and had a pretty sick goal last night.

 

 

 

 

Sorry, I can't help myself.

Another former Wings player who made a mistake leaving is, Brunner he should have stayed with the Wings, the guy had 1 season under his belt(which wasn't even that good, but he looked better in the playoffs) and got greedy. Now he's stuck in a system that he doesn't fit in with. If he stayed here he might have kept growing, but instead he is stuck in NJ.

bad advice by his agent i would guess. RH shot badly needed on the top 6 for the Wings, he would gotten enough chance's with Detroit. He asked too much for his 1 season and the Wings went and got Alfie at more $ yes but Alfie's record speaks for itself. Brunner should have seen the long term goal instead of short term gain. As long as he's happy in Jersey i guess thats all that matters.

He may not be stuck for long because you know how Holland likes to bring back former players.

This was the first thing I read this morning and after that I no longer needed coffee.

Ville Leino is doing what it takes to get that #1 pick. He's the only one who really gets it. You mock him now, but one day, when the Sabres are the most dominant team in the modern era, you'll remember Ville Leino, the selfless hero who took it upon himself to turn the organization around and put it on the path to future glory. And you mocked him.

Josh Langfield - Matt Ellis - Matt Hussey... those glory days of 2006-2007 :)

 

If I'm not mistaken we actually tried to play this trio as our fourth line


Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

When rival fans accuse us of over rating our current crop of prospects, the Matt Ellis era is the first thing I think of.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
