I just want to start by saying that some of you sabre fans should really be ashamed of yourself. People are being very critical of the Sabres Brain trust which is very understandable, but you really look at everything that has Transpired since the Lockout, the Sabres have had a plan. they established a team out of the lockout that was structured for the new NHL and played very well. although through circumstances we ultumately fell short of winning the Stanley Cup. B. Thomas Galisano, Darcy Rieger and Larry Quinn had a lot of Tough decisions to make. I nthe End the decided that the Team they had was not good enough to win the cup so the Rebuid process began.
The Sabres had to decide who would be the building blocks of the Organization for the Future. They chose the Younger Skill players in Roy, Vanek, Pominville, Stafford and Paille. The Sabres Have Been one of the Best Drafting teams the last ten Years, having the most players drafted in the NHL, so Management decided to collect Talent through the Draft. With Players in the Organization Like Nathan Gerbe, Tyler Myers, Tyler Ennis, Mike Weber, Chris Butler, Andrej Sekera, Tim Kennedy, TJ Brennan, Drew Schiestel, Dennis Perrson, Jhonas Enroth, Zach Kassian, and Marcus Folingo. I believe after watching alot of these players at Rookie camps and watching as many Juniorand college games as possible that every single one of them have NHL talent, and Man at least half of them have All-Star Potential.
As Long as the sabres keep making the right choices Most of These of players will be Putting on Blue and Gold with in Two Years and the Rest Withing Four. IF what Ive Witness is what i think it is then here are what My Progressions for the Next For Years
45-32-5 95pts 7th seed in East
This is not With Patrick Kane(which i think the Sabres will make a serious push for the home town boy when he becomes a RFA)
48-28-6 102pts 4th in East
53-22-7 113pts 1st in the East
Plus if they dont Give up 4 1st rounders for Kane they will have more and more Talent filling portland.
well thats the way I see it, so please dont get on the team for things that you may not understand, sometime you have to look at the big picture to get a better perspective...
