On this episode of Talking Buffalo recorded live from Imperial Pizza in South Buffalo, Patrick Moran is joined by longtime friend and recurring guest Tone Pucks to drop a full smorgasbord of Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres and other topical “hot takes” as we wind down 2023.

The Bills are trending in the right direction at the most critical time of the season and the Sabres are unmistakably headed in the opposite direction. Tone has plenty to say about both, from Sean McDermott having a professional and maybe personal turnaround to Ed Oliver taking the reigns on defense and debate over whether Von Miller should even be playing. On the hockey side it’s about disappointment with the team and in particular some of the guys that were given big contracts pretty early on. Patrick’s nearly out on the Sabres while Tone’s willing to see how they do during an extremely winnable long January stretch.

They also spend some time discussing Christmas they spent with their families and plenty more. As always, a huge thanks to Imperial Pizza for their great hospitality and killer wings. It should also be noted that the second Imperial location at 1665 Main Street is fully open for business.
