Sabres need 5 of the remaining 8 points to match last year's 81 points. Over a full season, that's a 102-point pace.

 

Also, Colorado's Max Points right now is 51. That's terrible on a level we can't even fathom.

Was gonna say. Low 50s is something Sabre fans can recall.

But now when I'm defending DD I can't use the phrase "historically bad" anymore.

 

Stupid Avalanche.

Doh. For some reason, I though the Sabres were in the high 50s each of the tank seasons.

Something something injuries. With Eichel playing 82 games next year we'll probably be able to bump that up to 87 points. Progress. DB for life.

Based on the numbers, I'd bet on worse right now.

The difference is a butt goal and legwand scoring from his own blue line.

Somehow, I don't think the Sabres are going to be a point per game, or last year's total.

The Buffalo sports media should start grilling Murray, Bylsma and Pegula, at every opportunity, about the State of The Rebuild.  We're six years+ since the Pegulas bought the team, and will be going on 3 years since Murray was hired - and the team is mightily struggling to hit a meager 80 pts.  

 

And the media shouldn't let the 'injuries' excuse fly;

 "Oh, well Eichel and Kane were injured for the first part of the year" - BS - that doesn't fly and the sports media shouldn't allow them to pass it off for an excuse -  it's not like the team has been on a points tear since both returned from injury - they've been averaging just under one point per game in the last couple months.  A bunch of terrible games have been played while Eichel and Kane have been on the active roster. 

And every team has injuries -  part of the game.

(Probably Last Bump)

- Leafs took second wildcard spot in the east with 95 points

- Dolts and Fishermen missed with 94.

- Preds in the West with 94

- Winnipeg (really, really) missed with 87

- Sabres needed 33 points in 22 games, or .750, or a sample record of 15-4-3, to get to 95 (don't care about tiebreakers)

- .750 for a season would be 123 points

 

Playoffs? Don't talk to me about Playoffs.
