Games are pretty boring, and the approach doesn't even work. I think the Sabres are more suited for a high-tempo system. Since trapping or whatever Ruff is doing doesn't even work, might as well go for a Philly-like system that's at least fun to watch!
If you're a fan there's no such thing as a good, boring team. there is nothing boring about winning.
were Devil's fans bored when they road the trap to a Stanley Cup? I doubt it.
I disagree. I love hockey, I watch other hockey teams that I don't have a rooting interest in playing. As long as the games are good and the teams play well I will enjoy them. The Sabres have won games where I've literally fallen asleep during them and lost some of the best, most exciting hockey games I've ever seen.
I also like the fact that you think you're qualified to constitute what a "fan" is or isn't.
After years of waiting for Stafford to become a legitimate scoring threat, it’s time to pull the plug. Stafford is what he is: a player that will score in bunches and pad his stats in 15 games a year and disappear the other 67. Stafford and linemate Marcus Foligno are tied for the worst plus/minus among Sabres forwards at minus-6.
