I don't have the time to check the history files right now, but under Ted Nolan, the team was improving just about each year.
Ted Nolan only coached for two years, so saying he improved every year is a stretch.
His first year they missed the playoffs with Hasek and Lafontaine.
Ted's second year they won the division with Hasek and a bunch of scrubs.
Then it was on to the Regier-Ruff era where the team wasn't all that great in the regular season, but was better in the playoffs the next two years.
What has happened after those first two years under Ruff? The team has steadily gone down hill.
Then they dealt with the SCF hangover by getting bounced in the 1st round.
And then there was the whole Peca holdout and Hasek letting Kasper send the Sabres to the golf course.
And now without Hasek the team is where they were before he arrived on the scene. A team that struggles to win night in and night out.
