Their offseason moves have clearly shown that's not the case

How so? Trading Roy for Ott was hardly an earth-shattering move. I love what Ott brings to the table, but it doesn't change the fact that Buffalo subtracted its only proven, defensively decent center and downgraded scoring even further in the process. I had a more favorable opinion of the deal at the time, when I assumed the Sabres weren't done making changes. As it stands, Roy out, Ott and Scott in doesn't do that much to elevate the team. Are they tougher? Definitely. Better? Ehh.
