Stevenson, I believe. Not an “A” list’er, but was their #1 at the time.

Yup. he isnt an elite centre by any stretch but he's been their best pivot & with Stone/Patches on the  wing he's a solid complement to the line.

I think the idea that we had it easy and could only win because Tavares and Schiefele and Stevenson were out is very largely overplayed.   Sure, the other teams had injuries. But so did we.  Drouin was gone the whole playoffs. Weber, Petry and Gallagher were playing on a very very serious injuries etc.   Injuries are part of the deal & in the end we beat 3 good teams, thats all that really matters.

This game, although extremely early in the season, has an eerie feeling of a must win situation to get the team going.

I think only the fans feel this way. I think the team knows its a long season and there are a lot of guys on this roster who need to get used to the style, the system etc. 

I dont think they will panic for 10+ games.    There were stretches last night we looked good and others we looked horrible.

I think we'll win tonight but i think we're going to give up some goals. 5-3 habs

So how bad is this goalie of ours? Niemi bad or just so-so bad?

To this point, i think he's potentially Neimi bad (remembering that Neimi was quite good for stretches before he came here) but one thing I always wonder when a team takes a flyer on a goalie is:  do they know something we dont?

Presumably Burke and co. feel like he's got some potential. Maybe they were watching him before and think there's potential there.  My guess is that even if thats the case & they are able to turn his career around with some skill-correcting, it probably will take some time & we're likely to see some less-than-stellar goaltending tonight.

I wonder if Montembeault plays this evening?

I would say no. Still early in the season. If it was Carey & Jake,  I would then say yes.

Yes confirmed Montembault will start. It's why I picked the Sabres to win tonight

I stand corrected.  Can't say I like this decision. We could really get behind the eight ball in a hurry, this season.
