The best Sabres podcast
Intelligent and informed conversation backed up with solid analytic information all about this hockey team. Told from two fans that are honest yet hopeful about the Sabres now and in the future. Very entertaining interaction and s must listen for real fans of the Blue and Gold aka Black and Red !
Good Sabres show w/ a couple minor criticisms
Overall great content and analysis for numbers/analytically inclined hockey fans. A few things I would change/improve:
-Anthony has a speaking quirk where he says “, right?” after about 50% of his sentences.
-more consistency with the episodes being released. Life happens though and that leads to random long gaps between episodes.
-could really do without the guessing games at the end of the episodes. Maybe fine during the off-season but a brief review of other teams in the league to pay attention to or interesting players to watch would be more informative than playing 20 questions about old Sabres players.
Better than Duff and Biron
