Stars and Black Holes: Sabres @ Penguins: 10-5-13


They got outshot 35-21.  Don’t need to say much more than that.


  1. Thomas Vanek – Some say Vanek looks checked out, but I disagree.  He led the team in shots again, this time with 4 and forechecked well enough.  A large part of Vanek’s game is calmness and sometimes that manifests as apathy.
  2. Jhonas Enroth – Give him credit for hanging in there.
  3. Mark Pysyk/Christian Ehrhoff – Runaway best defensemen so far.

Unsung Hero:

  • None.

The Robert Wade Niedermayer Memorial Black Holes:

  1. Drew Stafford – The D is problematic as well, but the team has two goals in 3 games.  Stafford is the second most senior Sabre forward to Vanek.
  2. Everyone Else Except for Larsson, Grigorenko, Girgensons, Ristolainen, and Flynn – Not going to bang on the young guys, but it’s pretty much a train wreck right now.

Unseen Goat:

  • None – They’re all pretty visible goats right now.
