Today was a day to clean out the topic bin, as we covered a lot of ground. We discussed the closing of Rexall Place in Edmonton and all of the great Oilers that were in attendance. That led us down memory lane with some of the great players and the cards we collected as kids.

We then discussed the litany of big games tonight in the NHL, the new Sabres call-ups and a look ahead to next season.

We talked about last night's win over the Devils with Rob Ray. In addition to the game, Rayzor talked about the players that have surprised him the most this year.

We then headed to Detroit, via the hotline, to speak with Red Wings play-by-play announcer Ken Daniels about the next two games for Detroit. Tonight, they host the Flyers and then head to Boston tomorrow night. Two of those three teams will make the playoffs and one will not.

We finished the show talking with Paul Hamilton.

With Andrew Peters off today, Sabres great Danny Gare jumped over the boards to fill in. Danny's analysis of this year's team and its future is a must listen.

We also talked about Steven Stamkos' future and the current playoff picture.

Paul Hamilton checked in from New Jersey with a team update right before practice. The team is getting set for the final three games of the season and will play the Devils tomorrow night.

Video review and coaches' challenge topped the agenda with the situation from the Sabres game last night. The process – and result – were the main points of discussion.

New defenseman Casey Nelson joined us for a few minutes to talk about his decision to join Buffalo, and his early success.

Tim Murray was on WGR 550 Thursday afternoon and we replayed his comments concerning Nelson and Evander Kane. We finished the show with an update from Paul Hamilton.

We spent a lot of time in Chicago (discussion-wise) despite being in downtown Buffalo for today's show live from First Niagara Center. Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith was the reason, as he will have a disciplinary hearing for hitting Charlie Coyle in the face with his stick.

As we started discussing tonight's matchup against the Maple Leafs, it led to draft talk and what implications winning the lottery means for all teams involved. We then fielded plenty of calls on Robin Lehner, his future, and the future of Tyler Ennis.

We recapped the Sabres game in Pittsburgh last night with Rob Ray during his weekly appearance. As always, Rob mixed in some great humor with his between the benches insight.

Duncan Keith's stick swinging incident from last night sparked a lot of conversation on how much of a suspension should be levied. It also prompted Brad May to call in and share his experience from being suspended for 20 games for a similar incident.

We also discussed the playoff picture, draft positions and the music of Nelson.

Sled hockey also shared the marquis with Team USA hosting the Pan American Showcase this week at Harbor Center. Team USA coach Jeff Sauer joined us for a preview.

We had the pleasure of having Kris Baker from SabresProspects.com in studio for the entire show.

That gave us a chance to discuss the Sabres draft picks that are playing in the NCAA tournament, the latest additions of Hudson Fasching and Casey Nelson, and the potential selections in the 2016 NHL Draft. We even did a mock draft with the lottery selections.

Since Andrew Peters wore a referee shirt to the studio today, we spent the first part of the show taking about officiating.

Brad May joined us for his weekly appearance, and shared some of his favorite referees from his playing days. We then turned our attention to the playoff picture and the current division format.

Paul Hamilton provided his daily update from practice, with Hudson Fasching and Casey Nelson going through their first session with the team.
