Sabres drop sixth straight at Carolina

  • Posted on February 11, 2010 at 10:09 pm

You’d be hard pressed to find a team in the NHL more eager to see the Olympic break than the Buffalo Sabres. For the sixth straight game Thursday night the Sabres failed to skate off the ice with two points and perhaps more alarmingly tlost to the Carolina Hurricanes for the second time in a week, 4-3 in overtime.

Carolina, ranked 14th in the Eastern Conference defeated a sliding Sabres team that’s now 0-4-2 in their last six games and 2-8-2 in their last dozen.  They’ve also lost four straight games to teams not currently in the top eight playoff positions in their respective conferences.

The Indiana Daily Student is reporting that University of Indiana offensive line coach Bobby Johnson is leaving the school to become the assistant offensive line coach for the Buffalo Bills.

The report says that Johnson hasn’t signed a contract with the Bills yet but the school has already released him from his contract with the University.

Johnson has been with Indiana for five years.  Under his guidance, Indiana ran for over 2,000 team rushing yards in 2007 and 2008.

Johnson played college football at the University of Miami and also has coaching experience with Akron as their defensive line coach and Miami as tight ends coach.

Six players the Bills could trade

Donte Whitner Chris KelsayIt remains to be seen if the Buffalo Bills will soon be more competitive or descend even further into oblivion, but one thing about this team is certain; the roster turnover is going to be extreme.

There’s a slew of pending free agents, led by Terrell Owens and a cluster of mid tier to lower tier players the club won’t bring back.

Some players will get cut simply because they either don’t fit or underachieved.  John McCargo, Nic Harris, Chris Ellis and Roscoe Parrish are among those prime candidates.

The following are six players that could be dealt this offseason.  All contain a reasonable amount of value to other teams; even if they’re no longer needed here.
