Sabres beat Tampa; clinch playoff birth

  • Posted on March 28, 2010 at 1:02 pm

A recap of Saturday night’s 7-1 Sabres victory over Tampa Bay that ensured Buffalo will end their two-year playoff drought.

Rising Stars

First rising star: Paul Gaustad
That’s the Paul Gaustad that Sabres fans have learned to love. It has been a while since the Goose has played well in back-to-back games. Goose finished the night with one goal (Could be two, but the goal officials are blind at The HSBC Arena) and acted as if he was Antero Nittymaki’s shadow in the first period. He’s one of the few physical players on the Sabres that can hold his own in the offensive zone. Goose is probably the biggest body the Sabres have that can take the pounding inside the crease which is always beneficial.

Why the Bills shouldn’t pursue Donovan McNabb… yet

Donovan McNabbI’ve abstained from discussing the ongoing trade saga - or lack thereof - of Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb. Will St. Louis make a move for him? How about Oakland, or even our beloved Buffalo Bills? Does McNabb even want to play for one of those teams? If he’s moved, will McNabb’s new team be anything more than rent-a-franchise for a year before moving on to greener pastures?

The worst-kept secret in the NFL right now is that the Bills need a franchise quarterback. It’s why the majority of mock drafters don’t have the Bills passing on a QB if one is available in their projection. It’s why self-represented free agents want to talk to this franchise. It’s why the Bills would even be interested in a 34-year-old quarterback with one year remaining on his deal in the first place. I don’t think it can be understated just how desperate Buffalo’s desire for a franchise QB is.
