Sabres 5 Canucks 2

Boo.
- that's not the Curtis Sanford I saw in preseason
- why does this team continually shit the bed after a hard-fought victory over a tough opponent?
- where's the discipline? The Canucks buried themselves in the first period by taking way too many penalties.
- Shane O'Brien is a slow skater isn't he?
- Taylor Pyatt needs to be shown the door.
- Over 19:00 played by Demitra. A -1 and zero shots. At least Mason Raymond had 6 shots and through all this the 2nd line probably had its best game of the season....and that is not saying much. Not until they cash in.
- just gotta love Burrows-Kesler-Hansen. I wish we had 3 more lines like that sometimes.
- I know people like the more wide open style that Gillis demanded, but I miss the stingy system Vigneault had over the past couple of years. At least those games were close.

BOXSCORE

The penalty trouble was what did us in. What a shame, I was really hoping this team would be more disciplined. That puck-over-theglas penalty is sure silly! But full credit to the Sabres for taking advantage.

It's pretty hard to dislike the Sabres. Those guys work hard. All of them. Good to see Vanek earning his dough too.
There are a few Canucks players thatcan learn a lesson from Buffalo.

I have a feeling the Canucks season is going to be like the stock market this year. Extreme highs and extreme lows.
