The Buffalo Sabres D Core is soft.... I know alot of people are going to not like what was just said but its true. the only one thats doing their job is Spacek. They dont hit and play a finese defence. players are allowed to go right in on goal and do what they please. Please get me a player that clears the front of the net.
Lydman and Tallinder are shadows of their old selves. they are not the #1 D they were the last year and a half. they are sloppy in their zone with their give aways and inability to clear the zone. You need your #1 D pair to be your best pair.
Campbell is a great OFFENSIVE Defencemen. Offensive being the key word. Hes a Souray type player that lacks ability on defence and will earn a 5 mil dollar paycheck this off season and hopefully not with the Sabres.
Paetch looks like a 6th round pick. His inability to make plays and read plays shows. Hes a good 7th but not in the top 6.
Kalinin just isnt the player he was in 03-04. constant give aways end up in the back of the net (EX Hossa) he does not use his size to hit and lacks offence. i kno hes been injured but its been the same deal since the lock out with this guy. Emence talent thaqts probably never going to go any where.
I hope this is just my pessamistic side talking but if this does not change y would Ryan Miller stay here. its a known fact that he wants to win a cup and if this franchise will not do whats necessary to do that i would walk after next year if i was him.
im sure some people wont like what was said but im just saying what i see.. let the debate begin......
