THE BUFFALO SABRES WILL BE FINE
THIS IS THE CORRECT ANSWER
I couldn't disagree more.
For myself, and I'm sure some others, it comes down to compete. That is partial coaching, partial internal drive and passion of the players.
3 games in, 2 of which are complete catastrophic blowouts......HOUSTON, we have a problem......
ROR himself is saying openly he just skates around aimlessly and he doesn't understand why. That's an issue, a BIG issue.
Help coming in a year? Baptiste, Bailey, Fasching, Nylander, Guhle?
Even if 3 out of those forwards pan out and Guhle, its not enough, NOT NEARLY ENOUGH.
Take a good look around the EC. Toronto, New Jersey are up and comers, TB, Pitt, Wash and Florida are either poised or already on a higher trajectory.
People talk about playoffs? When we are watching a complete collapse, yes, a complete collapse of how to do basic fundamentals and create a winning attitude is completely out the window here?
I think its time to realize that no matter how much we HOPE for something, action is needed. Duchene, re-unite ROR with him. Yes at the expense of Reinhart.
Move Moulson, get that contract gone, even if it means moving a 1st to do it.
The defense.......we need some serious help here. I can't even fathom the cost. But we are right hand shot, r8ght wing prospect rich, target a 2/3 24 to 28 yr old and make it happen.
We are bleeding points, in a conference where every point counts. Don't "WAIT" for it to magically happen. Get ahead of this Bots long before the 1/4 season mark. Time is money!!!!!
