I think at this point the sabres are very close to have completed a rebuild. Half of the old core is gone (Roy and Gaustad) all (or most) of the young guys are on the cusp of getting into the club, and weaknesses we once had are on the verge of becoming strengths. Calgary on the other hand, just won't do ANYTHING to come even close to a rebuild. I would compare them to what the buffalo bills have been doing until recently. Not doing what is necissary to improove. Sometimes it is alright to be at the bottom of the league instead of the middle for a year or two (or more in EDM's case), because it makes you a better team in the long run. Look at Pittsburgh. They had two first overall picks in a row.
