Just How Bad Are The Buffalo Sabres?

from John Vogl of the Buffalo News,

It’s interesting listening to scouts and media members in the press box who are seeing the Sabres play for the first time. They’ve seen the dismal record and know Buffalo isn’t good, but as their comments show, they’re never quite prepared for how bad the Sabres really are....

The Sabres extended their disturbing trend of looking like a peewee team, and only the goaltending of Ryan Miller prevented a 2-0 loss to the New York Rangers from being much worse. The Rangers opened with a 31-10 shot advantage, and the combination of New York taking its foot off the gas and Buffalo trying harder led to a 46-29 finish.

The Sabres closed the opening month of the season at 2-12-1.

“When everyone wants this to stop, it’ll stop,” Miller said. “We seem to be making more situations for ourselves than even the other team can create. It’s on us to dig out of it and start having the right attitude and right approach. It’s been a lot of games searching, trying to figure it out. Enough’s enough.”
