Ok, now for 4 years I have supported the Sabres management. Through the Briere and Drury fiasco and the Campbell trade. From going to Stanley Cup contenders to 9th place hopefulls. I always believed that the Sabres had a better plan, however I have sadly mistaken. The Sabres team continues to get worse and worse. We lose two second line centers and we get Nolan Pratt. We trade Campbell and we get Rivet (not too mad at that one although many are). We lose Spacek and we get Montador. All of these moves have decreased this teams talent. I understood through the Drury and Briere fiasco that we had alot of young blood coming up and that it wouldn't be all that bad to see what they could do. Obviously it wasn't enough in 07-08. Therefore changes were needed, of course not many but just a few. Leadership and toughness were two things that stood out. We also needed a solid dman and a center to replace Drury and Briere (just one!). Darcy and the organization decided that we didn't need what everyone else though we needed and of course we missed the playoffs again. Then I still belived that now we realized that we were just not good enough, that the market is down, and that we could really use a vet or two up front. Of course Darcy and the Sabres didn't realize what we needed. They said they would evaluate and they obviously feel that not making the playoffs is acceptable because nothing has been done to improve this team at all, in fact we're in worst shape then we were last year. They show us fans no respect anymore and therefore I'm done respecting them. How does an organization think its fans are feeling right now, do they even care? For years now Darcy has been bashed, does he even care? They are the joke of the NHL and I think they are satisfied with it. It's just so sad to even think about how close we were and how just a couple of people messed everything we had up. It takes alot to build a great team, however it takes one jerk to mess a team up and unfortunatly for us, many idiots messed our team up. We continue to sell out the arena, but now I'm done and you should be too. Maybe if we only fill our arena half full, they will then realize? I don't know what to do, we are just so helpless. Do we just have to quit watching hockey. We can't root for a new team! I'm out of explanations and I don't even know how to go about this team anymore. I think I'm done. Koivu, Komiserik, Marchant (for 1 mill!) all gone and all guys we could have used. Instead we will fill our O with Kennedy and Gerbe and guys w no experience. Almost every other team has done something on July 1st, the last three years besides the Sabres and it isn't very fair at all. The teams that spend the money win and there is no way to go around it. Don't tell me it isn't Darcy's falt or we don't have enough cap room because, you know what Darcy should just quit if the Sabres have no money to spend rather then get his reputation ruined and Darcy is still with the team so he doesn't give a damn either. We also do have alot of cap room, however we have our own special cap and that cap will handicap us forever. The worst thing is that no changes are ever made and it makes the Sabres very easy to dislike and to ignore. They are boring, they are losers, they are the Sabres management, and they ruin our lives!

yuh its only early July....lots of talent still out there for sign or trade, I got faith in it....and whats wrong with giving gerbe and kennedy a try, both players are going to be NHL'ers and they got skill, but we should really be talking about Tyler Myers...6 foot 8 and still growing out, this kid is going to be a stud this year..woop woop

Don't forget that darcy was the one who got drury and briere for nothing, and drafted cambell.. Drury was an asshole and didn't tell the sabers that he definatly wasn't coming back, an by the time he was gone it was too late for briere.. Also, all re moves the sabres make have to be approved by the owner.. Who is too rich to care and pays shit head larry quin to act as owner. Darcy can only work with what he is given.. Which is not alot, and allthe good players want alot
