The Buffalo Sabres had a really tough season this year. With the money problem, getting a new owner, and to top it off they traded a lot of their star players before the trade-deadline. They traded key players Rob Ray, Stu Barnes (their captain). The Sabres has some good moments during the season, with a good position for the draft, are the Sabres capable of rebounding after everything they have been through during the season.

Yes William, how 'bout those Sabres?


They had a mediocre year, unfortunately with no owner they dont have the cash to compete and sign the big name free agents. I'm surprised they held on to M Satan at the trade deadline, I thought he might be coming over here to Philly. Hopefully, they can find an owner and get themselves together before next season.

I saw on the news last week that they originally thought two of the Sabres players had the SARS illness and quarantined them for a few days, but fortunately it turned out that they didnt have it.

Something to actually celebrate this season: Lindy Ruff became the franchise leader in coaching wins, passing Scotty Bowman.

Lindy Ruff, deserved to be the franchise leading coach, he has done a great job with the sabres, they won a lot more games with a young team and goalie.
Iam happy though that the players with the SARS illness have recovered. I bet that you were hoping that Satan would come to Philly, then you would have been really exicted.

i heard that they're considering former rangers GM (and my neighbor) neil smith for the job of owning the sabres. He did a very good jon as GM for the rangers and won us the cup. He could have still been the GM (and we wouldn't have wound up with Sather) if he hadn't gotten along so badly with teh current coach. I think that his going to buffalo would be very good for the team

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- With hopes of making the Buffalo Sabres playoff contenders again, the team rehired coach Lindy Ruff and retained general manager Darcy Regier on Wednesday.

The decision, announced by new managing partner Larry Quinn, marks the first significant move since Rochester billionaire B. Thomas Golisano purchased the team last month.

Quinn dismissed the Sabres' troubled past, which includes filing for bankruptcy in January. He is confident Ruff and Regier can lead the team into the future.

Forward Chris Drury signed a four-year contract with the Buffalo Sabres on Monday.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the established offensive threat is expected to get a significant raise over the $2.5 million he made in the final year of his contract with Calgary last season.

A five-time 20-goal scorer, Drury is being counted on to be a first-line forward on a Sabres team that lacked offense last season and seeks to end a two-year playoff drought.

Drury is coming off a solid season in which he had 23 goals, 30 assists and 53 points. That would have made him Buffalo's third-leading scorer.

He spent his first four seasons with Colorado, where he was the rookie of the year in 1999. Also with the Avalanche, Drury also earned a reputation of being a clutch performer, scoring 26 goals -- 11 of them game-winners -- in 80 playoff games.

anybody else surpised with how well the sabres can play. They put a hurting on the candians last night winning 4-1.

Bad news for the sabres though as Jay McKee re-injuries his knee, the sabres dont know how long he will be out for yet.
