Okposo deserves a shot alongside Eichel.   He can't do much worse than Reinhart.

I inadvertently stumbled across what I believe is Your Twitter Account, having Barack Obama as one of Your Followers is very impressive.

Hahahahaha. This is the forward corps Botterill has built in 3 years (with, basically, anyone of real value inherited). Imagine if he didn’t get exceptionally lucky with Skinner’s NMC? (Or as lucky as one can be considering we’re now paying him 9 million for 19 points). 

Truly laughably bad stuff. It’s obvious he’s in over his head at this point.

Yep.  When he came it seemed everyone and their grandmother were pumping his tires.  He was the next up and coming gm we were lucky to have.  Wow something here is going terribly wrong pissing away another season with Jack  and especially with him playing at near mvp level. There have been a couple of injuries but nobody except JBott thought this forward group was good enough coming into the season.  Nothing has changed.  There is something to be said about continuity but JFC they have to make the change at GM if Sabres finish bottom 5 in the nhl don’t they?

Yes, you’ve pinpointed the issue 

Your second best centre can’t have 12 points at the mid-way mark

Looking at how the season has unfolded, not like i would NOT like this change. Anything is better than nothing, look @ the changes that has been done the latest games - it means sh1t to be fair. Atleast here we get to see difference, either to nothing or the better.

But maybe he produces more with better players?

Its rough when you look at those lines & see only 4 forwards out of the 12 as players you'd want on your team.

You could make arguments for maybe 1 or 2 more of those guys in a 4th line role, but thats a pretty pathetic NHL roster.

I honestly do feel bad for Jack & I hope this stretch of hockey doesnt jade him too much.

Imagine what it would look like if Eichel has a nagging sore throat

Probably got it from screaming WTF while watching his teammates play while resting on the bench.

Is a sore throat a reason a professional athlete misses a game?
