Jack Eichel in a first-round playoff series against the Leafs?

I don’t care about the circumstances, it would be the most interesting hockey Sabres fans have seen in more than a decade.

I would forgive 2020 for everything if this came true.

I would forgive 2020 for everything if this came true, especially if Eichel explodes like a supernova, Dahlin plays well and the Sabres get good goaltending.

Don't mind my tweaks!

The Sabres don't deserve to be in the playoffs, but if this scenario happens and they "get in," it will be interesting to see what they can do and we should allow ourselves to enjoy it.  When the Sabres turn it on, they can play with just about anybody.  Perhaps they will do that in a playoff type scenario.

Reading this post is the first time I that don’t want the season to end.

Imagine the Sabres getting into the playoffs and going on an epic Cup run so that we have to spend the rest of our lives getting chirped for winning it on the back of a global pandemic.

Idk, I don't think it'd be worth a summer of triumphcommunes condescendingly telling us that Botterill "ended the playoff drought"

I could handle it.

I couldn't. Win a Cup in the middle of a pandemic by making the playoffs when you wouldn't have otherwise, then winning short series on neutral ice with no fans? The prophesy would come true: the Buffalo Sabres would win a Stanley Cup, and I'd still find something to bitch about.

Why don't we just fervently hope for Sabres vs Leafs in a weird 2-out-of-3 playoff series and not worry just yet about a Cup with an asterisk.

I can't believe you aren't assuming the Sabres are going to hoist the Cup. In September. In Cheyenne.

To be honest, I'd be happy just to win the Cup even regardless of the circumstances.

 

You can put a million asterisks for all I care but I just want to see Sabres players lifting the Cup! ****************************

The Sabres' roster is bad enough that there is zero chance we'll have to worry about this debate

They WOULD beat the Leafs first tho

In Lincoln, Nebraska.

So @Tondas‘s wife can say ‘I told you so’

I would love to see this. Beating Toronto would be the season.  The asterisk is a perfect way to change the fortunes of this troubled franchise.

Kudos to the league for coming up with a fun, interesting, and only slightly controversial solution.  Even if it doesn't happen (which it probably wont) it shows the people running the league do have some legitimately creative ideas.

It would be a bloodbath in a best of 3 between Buffalo and Toronto

I know.  Leaf fans will be so distraught losing to the Sabres.
