Playoffs remind us of Sabres’ shortcomings

Via: Buffalo News

‘Other than super goalie Ryan Miller, Buffalo’s team is not built for the mental and physical grind that extends from April to June. The Sabres have some players any contender would love to have on its roster, but not enough of them to survive the spring or even move beyond the first round. Every team needs to have finesse players. Buffalo has its quota and beyond of finesse guys but, other than Thomas Vanek, none in the breathtaking category of Kane or Danny Briere of Philadelphia, once Buffalo property but allowed to leave without compensation.’
