They're clearly a middle-of-the-pack team right now that could -- heck, should -- get into the playoffs if Miller has an up year or some of our young players take a big step forward (ie: Myers, Ennis, Hodgson, Foligno, Grigorenko, Armia). I mean, We nearly made the playoffs last year despite having so many injuries on our blue line at one point that Joe friggin' Finley played a couple NHL games. Nonetheless, I think it's fair to say that Buffalo's management is building a roster whose best years are a couple seasons away. I think that became pretty obvious when they traded away half of the guys who wore A's on their sweaters last year.
