Serious question, what the hell is the identity of this team? No offense, middle of the road defense, and no grit. How long has this team been built like this and can someone please hire the entire scouting staffs from the Islanders and Hurricanes.....

Hurricanes yes, islanders ***** no

Well, early in the season, we were a Power Play team. But now that's dried up somewhat..

Pierre with his "Roooostalinen" is aggravating.

The Sabres have scored 1 goal in the last 9 periods.

And right there is the team's biggest problem.

If Larsson had even average finishing ability, he'd be a top 6 player.

The Canes allow their analytics department to heavily influence their drafting, the Sabres should start by hiring an analytics department

On the first TB goal, you were the defensemen that got beat?

McCabe was late getting back, Miller played the passer

We just have too many guys who are here to play a defensive role specifically, that add almost no offence. Too many role players. Sobotka, Vesey, Larsson, Girgensons, Okposo. That's 42% of the forwards. When Mittelstadt and Sheary aren't producing, over half our lineup in *incapable* of producing goals. 

Botterill did a good job bringing in some talent guys who can contribute (Skinner, Johansson) but people said all summer it was also about moving out some of the lower guys and bettering our depth. The goals are still coming from Eichel, Reinhart, and Skinner, (and Johansson) and that's it, unless Olofsson regains his PP form.

Can we get out of our own end before the end of the period?

Sabres came out and forechecked hard.  Now, nada.  Tampa has a tough, effective forecheck.

Sabres as consistent as diarrhea.

he is so soft

I don't think he's soft really, he just has inferior hands to nearly everyone.

You and Andrew Thomas would be a great place to start. 
 

This is what concerns me about  Botterill and Krueger were supposedly going to use analytics in decision making, so far the results have been meh
