This is just like everyone drooling over Hossa, who finally showed up for the playoffs yesterday only 8 games late. We are going to build a team in the mold of the Sabres, 4 strong lines, even scoring distribution, solid team game. We won't need that superstar, scoring winger. I'd be nice but I wouldn't pay the prices required or the ones suggested.

This team isn't ready to peak yet. Going for broke now is too premature. Staal will be a Norris candidate within 3 years. Lundqvist may be a multiple Vezina winner within 3 years. Dubinsky, Callahan, Dawes, Anisimov, Cheripanov and Sanguinetti will be entering their primes with some decent experience under their belt. Then let's talk about blockbuster trades. Then let's talk about emptying the bank.
Did the Sabres win a stanley cup that i do not know of?

I'd rather build a team in the mold of SJ or Anaheim or Detroit.. etc
