It’s Casual Friday on Talking Buffalo Podcast presented by Casey’s Black Rock, which means Patrick Moran is joined by sports writer and media personality Joe Yerdon to talk about a variety of topics, including the Buffalo Sabres opening up training camp with a baffling press conference by GM Kevyn Adams, Rasmus Dahlin not signing a long-term deal, Buffalo Bills linebacker Matt Milano becoming one of the best linebackers in the NFL, the significance of the Bills winning their next two home games, a “Starting Five” draft of Marvel Comics Universe (MCU) Movie Characters and much more.
Adams spoke to the media on Thursday and publicly stripped injured/disgruntled Sabres franchise center Jack Eichel of the team’s captaincy. The guys are in agreement that doing so in the manner it was done was completely idiotic and likely further distanced them from a fan base already long frustrated and angry. They also discuss why Dahlin was smart to only sign a three-year bridge deal with the organization and examine if Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen has a legitimate chance to win the Sabres starting goaltender job right out of training camp and the preseason.
They also talk some football and Patrick has concluded Milano is not only one of the better outside linebackers in the NFL but goes as far to say Milano’s the second-best player on the Bills right now After Josh Allen. Speaking of, the guys discuss Josh’s slow start and if they’re at all worried about it while looking forward to what could be a good game against a stout Washington defense on Sunday.
This week’s “Starting Five” features Best MCU movie characters. Patrick’s on his first winning stream since the two first started weekly drafts four months ago. Can he get to a three-week winning streak? That, plus thoughts on 762 Bills season ticket holders getting refunds because they won’t get vaccinated and much more.
