Tanking is done. Suffering is out the window. Your Buffalo Sabres are now at peak ‘put up or shut up’. Eichel is here and seems to be exactly as advertised. While there are guys yet to sign, there is room to maneuver, with a GM willing to do it. The draft is approaching, and that’s the perfect time to stop coasting on the goodwill generated by drafting a possible generational talent, and to make the moves that will put this team back in the playoffs where they belong.
Am I back blogging the Sabres for good? That remains to be seen, but I want be able to be excited again this year.
