Still Not Winnin' for MacKinnon

The Good -

- Cementing their status as worst team in the league

The Bad -

- Repeatedly terrible plays by supposed top 4 defensemen. Sekera, Ehrhoff, Regehr, Myers all made any number of poor plays tonight.
- Error-hoff handing one to Grabner.
- A complete lack of urgency from almost everyone to a man for almost the entire evening.
- Hey Marcus, where is that emotion in the first period? Or the second?

The Ugly -

- Sulzer hurting what looks like a knee so more TJ Time.
- This can still get worse and be so for a long, long time.

Just make a series of lateral trades at the deadline to shake things up for next year

Awful showing after the first goal; completely folded. Thought the team was "hanging in there" until then. Won't blame any of it on the coaching change; that whole ordeal HAD TO BE DONE. Right now it's clear as crystal this team is just ****.

Trade everybody. Seriously, Vanek, Pominville, Miller, Myers, everybody.

Keep 'Hoff, Sekera and Ott.

I'm worried about Grigorenko. They need to get him out of here. He looks completely and utterly useless on the ice.

The scrums at the end of the game were the most exciting things the Sabres have done/had happen all season.

Not everyday you see Miller in a headlock.

I'm at a loss. They were the better team for the entire game, then they allow the first goal and it snowballs into a 4-0 loss against the Islanders at home. The lack of leadership is so apparent.

He should have been fired when Ruff was.

Why do we want him involved in trade deadline and draft

I have watched weber all year so far, he is our best defenceman
By far. Very steady and rarely makes major mistakes.

There's absolutely zero reason to trade pieces like Vanek in season.

You wait until the draft for a team looking to speed up a rebuild to do that type of trade.

Those are the two things he's done well in of late?

Good
1-3-1 Powerplay
Lots of Chances
Nabakov
Top draft pick ensuing?

Bad
Miller getting Run, no one besides Weber doing anything
Not finishing chances
D Zone coverage
Fans

Ugly
We really are that bad as a team

Teams overpay at the deadline.
