    Well Pominville is a good sign. He is young and has shown promise, and Lydman is a good defensive forward. Good Job I do say, how much do they have left and how many more players they need?

    Good to see Pommeville is back in the league for 3 seasons, this guy needs pain in his life, lots of pain, so much pain he’ll never score another OT goal in his life ever agAin, never rush in the the PK ever again, Pain.

    I’M COMING FOR YOU POMMEVILLE, YOU DID SOMETHING YOU WEREN’T SUPPOSED TO DO

    PAIN POMMEVILLE, LOTS OF PAIN, SO MUCH PAIN IT WILL HURT SO MUCH.

    PAINNNNNNN TO POMMEVILLE PAINNNNNNNNN

    2 good signings but a little much for lydman i think.

  4. bpanther83 says:

    Um the goal against Ottawa wasn’t in OT according to his stats. Also, Why don’t you rather blame Ottawa never ending struggle to keep frmo choking, and signing goalies who choke as well. If it wasn’t Powmanville it would of been someone else, cause Ottawa just can’t get it done.

  5. muckies says:

    stats whatever, i was at the fuggiin’ game and it was OT

  6. Lindy_4_Prez says:

    hahahaha Ottawa blows! Poor Grandpa Muckler wouldnt go get a solid goalie at the deadline! Alfreddson got beat 1 on 1 by POMINVILLE!?!? hahaha good luck with Gerber *****es!!!!

  7. muckies says:

    1 on 1? try 1 on 2, Redden was right there watching.

  8. bpanther83 says:

    Ok I just checked somewhere else and you right. But heh, you should once again be blaming the choke factor instead, or your going to hate a lot of players in your lifetime until Ottawa decided to get themselves a new Captain and a Playoff type goalie.

  9. bpanther83 says:

    Thats even worse.

  10. muckies says:

    lots of hate, lots, 1 Cup will wash it all away. No Cup and I die an unhappy human, sort of like alot of Leaf fans.

  11. bpanther83 says:

    Yup, but at least you know how we feel lol

  12. adambuffalo says:

    Lydman is a defenseman. Good signings on both parts. The ones that I see going are Dumont and Max. Max will be around $4M. Keep Briere and deal JP, Max and Marty.

    dude Lydman’s a defenceman

    if the sabre’s keep most guys out of arbitration they will likely take the northeast division, If they lose too many Players they’ll be fighting for a playoff spot.

  15. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    the sens have been cup favorites for ever now. The team lost a Goalie who has won the cup, and got a goalie who chokes in the playoffs.

    3million/year for Lydman? AHHAHAHAHA

  17. John_Connor says:

    Gerber has maybe 7 or 8 career playoff games… hardly enough to establish a pattern (especially given his condition this year).

    There is more to a goalie than whether or not he has won a cup… if there weren’t, the Leafs would not have dropped Belfour in favour of Redlight Raycroft. Health is an issue… Belfour’s back proved troublesome, as did Hasek’s groin.

    A lot of goalies fail to step it up in the playoffs… but the only real “choker” IMO is Marty Turco.

  18. John_Connor says:

    Yeah, we know. It was painful to watch.

    These are both good moves for the Sabres.

    “Now it’s stolen away, up to center ice to Pominville. Pominville into Ottawa territory, Pominville goes around Alfredsson, cuts in front SCORES!! Jason Pominville shorthanded! Oh now do you believe?! Now do you believe?! These guys are good, scary good. And they are going to either Carolina or New Jersey. The Buffalo Sabres knock off the Senators in overtime!!” Goal of the year

  20. bpanther83 says:

    Yeah I didnt notice Lydman was a D man. And not that great of one either. Definitaly not worth that kind of money, thats for damn sure. Maybe the Sabres say my Leafs do it, and wanted to see what the big deal is lol.

  21. passionch says:

    Definitely a good bargain for Pominville’s contract and fairly good for Lydman. Buffalo is getting closer to their past season roster.

  22. muckies says:

    For me at the game, I missed the annoucing.

    My Brother just turned to me and said,

    ” Let’s go”

    That’s when i vowed to kill Jason Pommeville.
