I’ve been quiet for a while, and for good reason. Beyond hitting FNC for one of the viewing parties, an NBCSN game, and a grainy feed here and there, I haven’t seen the Sabres much at all in the past few weeks. I don’t feel right commenting on the play of the team or individual players when my sample size is this small. But I’m still a fan, and I follow what I can. I’m using this break to wipe the slate clean, as it were. No bad feelings from stupid losing streaks. I want the team to make the playoffs, as they seem to think they still can, and if not, making some deals to be better next year is A-OK by me, too. I don’t think this team is really this bad, but there’s been injuries (with particularly poor timing), lack of chemistry and good players having bad years. I don’t see any reason to go nuclear. Move who you can, get who you can fit under the cap, and let’s go.
