Buffalo Sabres fire Ted Nolan

Todd McClellan, Mr. Wilson on line one for you in 3...2...

Mr. Wilson, Plattner managemet on line one for you in 3...2...

The Sharks second half was a travesty. The blow is softened by the fact that the Kings are also at the driving range as we speak.

One more time!

He's the NHL version of Rickey Henderson. One of the all-time greats who just wants to keep playing, and really doesn't care who/what/where he plays. If he hadn't played those three years in the KHL, but had stayed and had "average" years (based on the season before he left and the season after he returned), he'd be standing all by himself in 2nd place in career points.

Seriously - for $3.5m, to get that kind of work ethic and game experience into your dressing room is an absolute bargain, let alone being a lock for 15-20 goals and decent possession numbers.

I know Bryce Harper was joking when he asked where his World Series ring was, but this does not look like a serious team, if you'll pardon a #HotTake based on half a game in a park they don't know very well. Sloppy.
