  • Sabres claim Konopka

    The Buffalo Sabres have claimed enforcer Zenon Konopka off waivers from the Minnesota Wild.

    This is the seventh team for the 33-year-old forward, who also played for Anaheim, Columbus, Tampa Bay, Ottawa and the New York Islanders. He signed with Minnesota in July 2012.

    Konopka was put on waivers on Thursday after playing in 36 games and claimed Friday. He has a goal and an assist and 55 penalty minutes. He has 29 points in 323 career NHL games.

    He is from Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, less than 40 miles from Buffalo.

    He was effective in Ottawa, I remember being mildly upset he was let go (no point in not keeping him at the time).

      All he can do is win faceoffs now.

          And even that, not so much with the new rule that stole his move (push back with the glove).

                The Lafontaine and Hasek years had some winning teams, but they never recovered from that crushing OT loss to Dallas in Game 7.

                  What I meant was no Buffalo sports team has ever won a title.

                    There's also a fairly significant history with the Bills there.

                    In Kitchener we get a lot of Buffalo coverage and they do seem to be downtrodden a lot.
