My apologies if this comes across as the drunk ramblings of a guy coming home from the bar at 4:30 a.m.
The worst thing about this season so far? This team has no identity.
It's been an issue since 06-07. Most of the Cup contenders can be pigeon-holed into one group (PIT/CHI-offensive, BOS-physical, LA/STL-defensive, etc.). What are the Sabres, or what are they trying to be?
That's the biggest problem for me right now. If the young kids on this team (Grigs, Girgs, etc) are the ones expected to lead this franchise to a Cup, Rolston and co. need to decide what type of team they want. If you want to be a physical team, demand that of the young players now. Want to play defense? Make them make a commitment.
This team doesn't hit, doesn't prevent goals and doesn't get chances. I'm no expert, but those three things feel like the most basic styles of play. Where exactly is this thing headed?
