With Buffalo, I see them as the Rangers were in the past: simply not enough fire-power to win a 7 game series.

I know they say that defense wins in the playoffs, but when you are completely lacking offensively, you can't win either. I don't see BS having the offense to beat us 4 times, whereas I can see the Craps clamping down defensively enough to make this a very tough series for us.
The Sabres have just about as much firepower as the Rangers. The Rangers top-line is slightly more dynamic and dominates at a higher level when they're hot. Other than that, they're similar, and quite honestly the way some of their young guys are playing, they have a much better secondary scoring depth overall. The good news is a lot of them are young and have very little, or zero playoff experience.
