I want them to make the playoffs, but I don't think they will..
I have a feeling this nice record, and Vanek's nice stats he's been putting up, have all been just a hot streak, and we'll cool off for the rest of February and into March. I said earlier in the year that this team would go on a nice hot streak late in the season to give us hopes of playoffs, but ultimately fall just short. I'm still sticking by that prediction.
All for making the playoffs but utilize this deadline for some dumping, or target 1 player that could help for several years. Don't have the mindset of the past years, do everything just to get in so it helps the bottom line....do something to help this team in the future.
Well, I kind of agree with this.
We've given up a load of 2nd and 3rd round picks for short-term rental players over the years, and I can't think of one of them that has actually made a significant contribution to helping the Sabres playoff push. I guess Zubrus wasn't bad. But most of them have been pretty worthless.
If they make the playoff it will be the same sh** again with the same roster and the same coaching staff. It has to change and the only way it will is if they do very bad and don't make the playoffs and then, maybe, they will change roster, coaching and GM... YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
