The difference? The Sabres have been successful. With most of the age/talent comparisons being similar, I can't believe more people aren't going with the team that's made the playoffs the past two years. The Blues have the name prospects, but the age difference isn't that big and they haven't done anything. This baffles me.
Well to be fair, the Blues had goaltending issues until they got Halak, and most of their core just finished their third year in the league. They have more room to grow, while most of Buffalo's players are in their prime. We're talking about who's roster would you take now, not who's roster would you take based on previous accomplishments.
