6. Will the Sabres' makeover into a "tough" team work?

This question is not a good one at all, he should have stopped at 5. The Sabres did not make their team into a tough team, they just got tougher. The hope is that they might now be looked at as a team that you can't bully as much.

The question should be, "Will the added toughness make the team better?"

Because a team that isn't tucking their junk in between periods is a team with better moral and confidence. My theory that toughness prevents injuries is maybe a little radical and I can't back it up with numbers, but that's still something I believe in. Tough teams have stars that don't get cheap shotted as much. So IN THEORY guys like Ennis and Vanek will be more productive because they wont be playing through injuries or rehabbing something all season.

We shall see...
