Every team with youth needs veterans. Buffalo does not need to rebuild, just stay patient.
First of all, isn't 6 years ok for patience? Or should we wait 8 years to win a playoff series?

Second, Vanek, Pomminville and Miller are all UFA's after next season... We will absolutely not keep them all. I woul guess only Pomminville will stay.

Why would Vanek and Miller want to waste the rest of Thier careers playing for Lindy Ruff?

The reality is that the Sabres aren't very talented and should absolutely rebuild.... Starting with coach and GM.

But they won't because Pegula is a Lindy Ruff fan and not a savvy NHL owner...

Lindy Ruff isn't the coach of "Hockey Heaven"

What a joke.
