Now that the draft is less than a week away, it’s time to start looking at the needs of the Buffalo Sabres.
2011-2012 was a disappointing season for the Buffalo Sabres. To say that the pieces were there for the Sabres, is an understatement. We can try to find excuses for why Buffalo didn’t deliver, but in the end, Buffalo was worse than in the season before, moving away from Terry Pegula’s goal of a Stanley Cup in Buffalo. This upcoming season, is do or die time for the tenure of Darcy Regier and Lindy Ruff. Now, I’ll be the first to admit that after this past season, both aren’t on my favorite coaches/GM’s list, I stand by this next statement, if Buffalo doesn’t at least get out of the 1st round of the playoffs in the 2012-2013 season, it will be time for regime change in Buffalo.
