I think the most surprising stat of the season so far is that despite only winning 6 of the last 31 games, the Sabres are somehow sitting in 28th place and that there are 4 teams worse than them. Ottowa being one of these teams. Expect a real stink-fest tonight.

Ottawa has 6 less games due to COVID-19 breakout earlier this year. So…..

Here's something unexpected: Thompson, Okposo, Girgensons, Tuch, Murray, Jankowski, Hayden, Dahlin, Samuelsson, Hagg.

That's more than half a lineup at 210ish or more.

Quietly the Sabres have become kinda big.

I'd like to see more grizzle in their play with that size.

Battle of the tear it down and rebuilders. Perhaps a contrast in approach but otherwise basically in exactly the same spot. Might actually be entertaining as a result.

Yes, unfortunately Dahlin still plays small.

So do the rest of them with the exception of Hayden maybe. Tage plays bigger than he did, but it's more reactive than assertive. Murray gets in front but maybe if he threw a body check once in a while he might develop into a player who could actually stick and become valuable. We don't hit anybody almost ever.

Judged against Jim Schoenfeld, sure.

Judged against most NHL defencemen, I disagree.

Nashville game would be my exhibit A
