And, of course, our team D in general is terribly disorganized, which makes everyone look worse than they should. I think Myers has showed some positive signs in the last several games. He's 23 and still by far the most talented young d-man we have/have had in a while, and I think some fans are being too hard on him.
The best way to solve that problem.....
Hire a good coach.
I think the Sabres have been miscasting players for a long time, putting them in roles they are/were not comfortable in. That's on Ruff mostly, but also Darcy.
It always comes back to getting players that fit your beloved "system"...or changing your system to play to your roster's strengths..
