Stick the Blues in the East and the Sabres in the West, and things probably change...we'd be talking about the Blues making the post-season and the Sabres missing. Arguing recent playoff appearances isn't a very thoughtful analysis when trying to differentiate these teams.


Yeah, switch conferences and results would be different, hey bud you realize Sabres had a winning record against the West

Blues haven't won a playoff game since the lockout, Sabres are far and away better. Blues are overrated because they have a bunch of big name prospects and obviously since were on HF they're some god like team.
