Little overreaction Sabres Fans. Sharks 92-93 lost 71 games out of 84 and had 414 goals against. Caps 74-75 had 8 wins in 80 games and 446 goals against. So, no, your Sabres are not the worst team in the history. They could make a claim though, if they loose every game for the rest of this season. But I doubt that is going to happen.

That's so ****ing sad. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the players had to see a therapist.

Just be patient. Our top 3 centers are not older than 24, they'll have to learn a lot. I know that we don't look like a playoff team at the moment. but just wait and see until hodgson, ennis and grigs break out and we suddenly could become one of the hottest teams in the league. Again, just be patient....

The sabres are not good this year. There are moments where they look great and more moments when they look brutal.

That said, any Sabres fan who really thought we were going to be a dominate contender has deluded themselves. This thread is an overreaction. Give them another year and maybe a new coach and the team should start picking up the pieces and putting them into place.

I don't think the Sabres are that bad. I feel they are a inexperienced at C but other than that I like their willingness to crash the net and defensively I've seen them be very active with their sticks.

Toronto was having a hard time setting up in Buffalo's zone because of their active sticks.

Buffalo does need a capable #1 C.

Their roster for anyone curious: http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/l...000441993.html

I remember Hackett and Irbe both getting absolutely lit up

Is this thread among the most reactionary in HFBoards history?

There's a difference from being painfully mediocre and flat-out losing. This thread is an insult to the fans who have had to endure real bottom-dwelling teams for year after year.

The -/+ on that team are staggering: -50, -42, -35, -50, -28.... Holy crap.

Not only are the Sabres the worst but the Leafs are pretty much guaranteed to win the Stanley Cup. Someone plan a parade route now.

No. Word to this thread being an insult to actually terrible teams.

However, Ruff might be the worst coach in the league.

I like Ruff as a coach but it seems like every coach has a shelf life and the Sabres probably need a change. On paper they look like they should be solid defensively and in net but their forwards are still young and probably a year or two away. They also seem to need a little more grit up front.

My comment was plenty serious. Matt Frattin is Mike Bossy but better, not sure why you doubt simple facts.

I think they have a lot of talent and they draft well. Didn't like the way they rushed to spend money when Pegula came on board. Expectations are too high though IMO. Not a huge fan of the defense and the leadership group, but they have young guys that should help improve that in the future. People are going to have problems with any coach that is around for a few years unless the team is consistently great.

Any team with Ryan Miller cannot be the worst club in a season let alone history.

The Sharks 71 loss season was in 84 games, in an 82 game season they may have had a winning record.

So yes the Sabres are the worst team in the history of professional sports.

If the Sabres are the "worst team in the history of the NHL," how is Regier a good GM

As much as I hate the Sabres..they are still probably a 10-12 team this year. Nowhere near the worst currently, let alone in history.

I think a big problem with the Sabres the last few years is that observers (their own fans and management and outside observers both) have overrated the team's chances because they overrate Ryan Miller.

Ryan Miller is a good solid dependable goalie good for usually putting up league average to slightly above average numbers, but his one elite season 3 years ago has everyone believeing that he's an elite goalie, when he really isn't.

This has made management think it can get away with lesser talent in the other parts of the roster when it can't.
