Pittsburgh might think otherwise.

Sure, every method to rebuild has risks. There's no sure thing. But in Buffalo's current situation, there's nothing wrong with bottoming out and getting a game breaker. Step backwards to go forwards.

There's also nothing wrong with being a Sabres fan and wanting that to happen.
They are still a terrible example.

They lucked into Crosby, who is the lynchpin of their success.
