Yet posters are rambling on about how are forwards aren't big enough or tough enough to win a Cup. I have no idea if they are tough enough to win a Cup. But that had little to do with the loss tonight. Is a bigger/tougher forward on the ice going to stop Myers from doing what he did on the first 2 goals? Or what Ehrhoff did on the 3rd goal? No would be the answer
What's sad is that all 6 losses this season can be primarily attributed to that - brainless mistakes by at least 2-3 of the defensemen. After the offseason, I think most of us all thought that the Sabres' defense would be its strongest position - yet, through 16 games, Regehr has been the only reliable and consistent defender. Myers seems to be freefalling back to his first half of last season; Sekera and Leopold are rollercoasters from game to game; and Gragnani and Ehrhoff are so careless and non-chalant with their passing and recoveries from mistakes, it's ridiculous.
