Holy moses. Dylan Cozens in a punchfest with Lindgren. Now, he handled himself very well but they probably don't want him doing that but so what the way this has gone. You have to love it. Dahlin said Sunday someone might need to get in a fight. Wow. #Sabres
If you screw up developing Rasmus Dahlin, you should immediately have to turn over your franchise
Dahlin gets his wish to see a concerned teammate punch an opponent in the face a dozen times.
Hall and Dahlin in 2-on-0 and they can't connect.
Matthew. You see I was being all cordial about Dahlin and I stumble on this? I won’t stand for this. This is crossing the line. Take it back.
#Sabres lines at NYR:
Scratch: Irwin-Thompson. Taxi squad: Mittelstadt
We are sitting at last place in the league with a 6-11-3 record deploying a roster with Eichel/Hall/Skinner/Reinhart/Staal/Dahlin and a few months away from missing the playoffs for the 10th consecutive year, if you had any expectations at all you would fire the coach
Not firing the coach is an insult to Sabres fans everywhere. What’s more likely, Eichel, Hall, Sam, Dahlin, Skinner all being bad players? Or the head coach being amongst the worst the league has seen in awhile? Easy answer.
Make it 16 times out of the last 17 Sabre games one team or the other scored three goals. And the team with 3 goals is 11-1-4. Eichel, Hall, Sam, Skinner, Staal, Montour, Risto and Dahlin have to be able to score 3 a game.
Raise your glass to Rasmus Dahlin getting his first even strength point of the season!
@MattKopnak @Onthewarpathbuf @boomertang
You can say that but also have to note not a single GM wasn’t taking Dahlin. So you can’t hit them on that.
Look Svechnikov is probably going to be the top player out of that draft. If Dahlin is 2nd best so be it.
DAHLIN LET SHESTY SCORE WTF
How can a team with Eichel, Dahlin, Hall, Staal, Cozens, Skinner and Olofsson still be one of the worst in the league
@carolinatitan10 @mega1480 @JeremyWGR
I think at this point you have to blow it up. I hate saying that but what else can you do? Cozens looks dynamite and Borgen/Dahlin combo is promising. Mitts has looked halfway decent. Not sure why he was taxied tonight.
Dahlin is so timid. Never steps up to challenge
No chance Buffalo includes Dahlin. But I do think that package would definitely work for Eichel alone. Getting rid of Stralman is an added bonus.
-Trade Hall, Sheahan, Staal, Montour, Irwin before trade deadline
-Resign Rieder, Reinhart, Joki, Dahlin, Ullmark, Borgen, Asplund + Casey
-Let Risto play out his final year
-Let McCabe, Hutton, Johansson walk
-Bring up the rookies + see what they got.
Cozens has been a good possession player. Dahlin has been a good possession player. This is what happens when you continue to ignore underlying metrics and try to prop up your anchor players. #Sabres #HockeyTwitter https://t.co/5lBQRMx4eq
My Sabres no trade list as of right now (current roster players only): Reinhart, Cozens, Dahlin
Not even close. Even with Lundell, there’s nobody even CLOSE to the combined talent of Eichel and Dahlin. You can’t just throw stuff into the blender and call it a fair trade
Took a Rookie to teach 17 veterans how to play hockey. Embarrassing. Great play, poise, intelligence, grit and stuck up for himself and his team. Keep Cozens & Dahlin, time to trade the rest, yes even our leaderless captain. Oh! And fire Krueger.
@Onthewarpathbuf @boomertang @CMDeDominicis
They have spend draft capital on that specific position. Those players may not have the perceived ceiling as Dahlin, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible for them to be good players.
@boomertang @Onthewarpathbuf @CMDeDominicis
I didn’t just wake up one day and thought “hmm I really want to piss everyone off... I’m going badmouth Dahlin”. Like everything I put on here I thought about it a lot. I factored in his play, advanced stats, perceived value and the Sabres depth at his position.
@boomertang @Onthewarpathbuf @CMDeDominicis
I would be more inclined to be patient with Dahlin if the team wasn’t struggling as mightily as they have been this last 6 years. Time is also ticking with Jack, so that is interwoven with my idea too.
@Onthewarpathbuf @MattKopnak @CMDeDominicis
06 Hurricanes might be the last team to win it without a Norris candidate level or stud 1D (depending on how you feel about Letang/Gonchar during the Pit wins).
On the asset management side, I actually value Dahlin even more. Top Fs are more plentiful and cheaper than top D.
