In Topic: Jim Devellano on Mantha's play: "Very disappointing"

All I'll say is... You know when a player scores a goal and they say "wow, he just never stopped moving his feet that entire shift, and got rewarded for it"

He's not that guy

Gotcha. Thanks! Around my house we call that the case of the "Robert Langs"

I talk like I've been watching him because I've seen a lot of him in GR. For work I travel to Michigan, specifically GR, all the time. The only one I know who watches more games than me is Krsmith....


Number9 - what is your scouting report on him from watching him so much? I'd be interested to hear your assessment.

I have a hard time believing fans who cheer when the other team scores belong to a good hockey city

Was every Sabres fan in Buffalo cheering, or just a certain group at a certain time(s)? If every Sabres fan was doing this then I 100% agree with you. If it was just a certain group or small%, then I still disagree with you. Like most things in life, a small% does not represent the group as a whole.

Please, Buffalo is far and away a football town that casually watches the Sabres... and in fact root against them when they're playing the yotes at the end of the season. Shameful.

I don't think motorcity was saying that hockey was the most popular sport in Buffalo, just that they are die hard, good hockey fans. Because after all, if we went by that criteria (most popular team/sport to root for in a particular town), Detroit wouldn't be considered a hockey town either.

I don't live in Buffalo but have spent a lot of time there over the past 20 years and I agree with motorcity, Buffalo is a very solid hockey town.

Neither Howard nor Kindl played for Blashill, aside from the one season he was an assistant with the Wings.
 
Weiss would be the logical choice for happiest. Can't imagine anyone would be unhappy. Ambivalent at worst, and could apply to any of the vets.

My bad on the Howard and Kindl reference to Blashill. I still think my opinion of Howard and Kindl being the happiest, and Z being the least happiest stands.

Thanks for the clarification.
