Darryl Sutter is always taking in live hockey games when he's on the road. Whether it's the AHL team (tomorrow night the Heat play in Milwaukee) or a game involving a prospect (T.J. Brodie plays in Barrie, Ont. on Thursday). Or, regular NHL games for that matter.
Man's all business.
Canucks fans are basically bad people.

Not sure a trade is what the team needs right now?
i agree in a way, but you want to trade from a position of strength, so its the right time to do it if there is a player the sabres want who is overachieving. But the Flames are playing well and I don't know who the Sabres are shopping around that the Flames would want. I guess it could be someone from the Sabres
or Sutter is just getting a look on a quiet night on a roadtrip.
GO FLAMES, STAMPEDERS, ROUGHNECKS and HITMEN!

Sutter being there makes sense as he is likely travelling with the team.
20 scouts in the building is what has me interested. I bet it's the Oilers that are the sellers and I bet that it is Mr. Penner and Mr. Horcoff who are on the table. Penner because people aren't sold on him and Horcoff because of that salary.....

Are the Sabres making any moves or just allowing this team to take its course?
The Sabres take a ton of heat for being passive, but they deserve more credit for building from within and allowing their youngsters a shot. Too often in the new NHL teams don't allow their talent a shot at the team. They develop them, then allow them to succeed elsewhere. I find it interesting that two teams that have had the longest GM/Coach tandem are Buffalo and Nashville. And those two teams have done the least as far as signings but have also set up a farm system with players who know that if they succeed then they will wear the mother team's jersey. The Sabres are a team that really also cares about character players. Guys like Jokinen have been on there radar, but the Sabres won't bring in a guy that they feel will be a cancer.
Speaking of the Flames, many feel that the Jokinen/Sutter Experiment may be failing. Could Jokinen be available again this deadline?
As you well know, never say never. As of now, I don't see Jokinen going anywhere. The Flames are a year long project that is all about tuning up for the playoffs. Too many early exits for the Flames really has the whole organization thinking in terms of playoffs.
