What do we all think about these Sabres?
The game as a general manager is complicated for sure. We can all bag on Darcy all we want, but hopefully we can be entertained by the next couple of months. We have a situation though, and hopefully it can be resolved by March 4th.
Max and Kotalik both need to be gone. We have to get something in return. I feel that draft picks can suffice. If we can get a top four defenseman or a 1st or second line center in return, that would be fine too. What i am thinking is trading Al for picks and peddling those with Max and a prospect for the player that we need.
My suggestions? We need a player that will boost our Power Play. Schneider, Aucoin or Kaberle would be the top four dmen I would prefer, since they would all add veteran leadership and offensive experience. Mathieu and Adrian would be the rentals, with Thomas having two years left on his deal. Cammaleri, McDonald, or Comrie would be the centers we should be looking at. These players would be adding a playmaker to assist vanek in reaching 60 this year in addition to being renta players.
So, as I was saying...I think these Sabres can make the playoffs, that is what I think. BUT, they need to get more offensive on the backend or put some top notch talent with our top notch player. So, Darcy...Be a little more like mike...Just Do it.
Buffman, signing off...
