I like the fact they brought up a guy like Dalton. If he is as effective as he seems to be as a physical player, it will certainly help slow the game down at times.
If he is smart about his style of play it just might be exactly what the Sabres could use right now.
Teams like Anaheim, Boston, Tampa, Columbus, etc, really cause problems for the Sabres. If they're planning on going anywhere in the playoffs the team as a whole is going to have to evolve and get some nasty in their game.
I'm not talking about meaningless fights, I'm talking about an intelligent application, some physical artistry, by design.
It can't be every once in a while ("Remember When..."), teams need to know that the Sabres mean business; if not, the Sabres will continue to be the red headed step child who everyone picks on because they can.
I'm having a tough time articulating what I mean. We don't need a bunch of fights... a bit of mean streak, sometimes you just have to born with it, a DNA thing...
Sabres still have half the season to figure it out.
Let's Go Buffalo!
