Sabres suck?

Hmm. You might have been wondering why I havenโ€™t talked about my beloved Sabres much this season. Wellโ€ฆ have you seen them play? They are 5-6, which means their record is โ€ฆ *gasp* as bad as the Leafs. Fortunately Iโ€™ve been working a lot and Iโ€™ve only caught the end of two games recently. I watched most of the Panthers game last night, and was not impressed at all. Simple defensive coverage was non-existent, offensive opportunities would be shots that missed the net, offensive pressure was constantly lost by weak passingโ€ฆ it was frustrating to watch as a fan. Our multi-million dollar boy Thomas Vanek is looking like a bit of a bust too. Sure he has a few points, but for 10 very large I expect a better effort and more *important* goals. Max, well, just trade himโ€ฆ I canโ€™t stand to see him cough up the puck 347294827 times a game. The defense,โ€ฆ Sigh, I donโ€™t where to begin. They are soft and completely ineffective at stopping offensive zone pressure. Iโ€™d like to see something doneโ€ฆ and done soon before we are so far under .500 that we canโ€™t climb out of the hole we are digging. Right now the playoffs are even starting to look like a dream.
