How bad have the Sabres been recently?

Recommended Posts

Bad enough that if they aren't careful the Flyers are going to catch and pass them...currently they are only 4 points behind them with an extra game played...the team that was at the bottom of the standings for much of the first half of the season has won 7 straight and are on fire...

Sabres better get it in gear...and not the way they did against the Blackhawks...

If the Sabres flounder through this 7 game homestand, I think they will be a lock for a top 5 pick this year. I still think they end up picking 7 or 8

Everybody needs to chill. This break will be very, very good for the Sabres. Refresh, refocus. I'm certain there will be no hangover from Bogo's Casino Night and Super Bowl Sunday and Manic Babyback Night at Applebees tonight.

Flyers are proof of what I am saying. First half of the year they were not that bad but they had no goaltending at all and that led to a lack of confidence, giving up etc. Now they got the kid up and he looks like the real deal and suddenly they are winning the close ones.

In the win streak, we were not that good, but we had big saves at big moments. Since then Hutton has let in soft ones often and is rubbish and Ullmark is better but still hot and cold. If we had the kind of goaltending Philly is getting right now (or Montreal or Boston) we wouldn't be having a lot of the conversations we're having. We'd be overlooking some of the issues. Some of those defensive lapses would not be goals against and we'd still be a playoff team. Goaltending is everything in this league.

The Sabres have been so bad recently that Ryan O'Reilly is sending them anti-depressants and self help books (rim shot).

How bad have they been recently?

Well, let's lay those cards right out there on the table.

They have been bad enough to go from the #1 ranking in the League in early December to the bottom 15 in the league in early February, that's how bad they've been. I mean really, stop and think about that for a moment. This team has ***** the bed so bad that the maid just refuses to change the sheets and room service knocks on the door and runs before it's answered.

is it possible to go from finishing last last season, to being in 1st place in the NHL the next season and then collapse and finish last again?

Maybe but the type of giveaways we have night in and night out 3-4 times a game are ones that you might see any average team do once a game and good teams do once every 2 or 3 games...we have an alarming rate of really really bad turnovers that are of our own doing that give the other team chances that are pretty hard to stop.

yes we do, but if you get great goaltending, you forgive them.

Another surprise...the St Louis Blues who were pretty much left for dead early in the year now hold down the first wild card spot in the extremely weak Western Conference...SMFH
