I actually agree with your overall point.

However! Stevens played 22 seasons in the NHL. That's a long time.

He strung together an 11 season streak in his prime where he did put up 45, 65, 53, 61, 72, 68, 40, 49, 59, 57, and 78 points!

Not bad for the ultimate stay-at-home defenseman's defenseman!

In that 78 point season (93/94) he was a +53 to boot.

Man, you look at the numbers of great players on great teams and you realize how mediocre this current collection of Sabres is.

It sucks.
