Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,
The Sabres have been out of sorts for the better part of three weeks and haven’t offered many, if any, indications they’re built for anything but a first-round playoff knockout.
They haven’t played well at home. They looked sloppy and disorganized before injuries piled up. Their second and third lines were mostly inconsistent and unproductive. Their defense and goaltending have been suspect and they’ve lacked competitive toughness and cohesion commonly found in legitimate Stanley Cup contenders.
Based on what’s being said in the community, fans are doing what comes naturally in true Buffalo fashion when a team nears a crisis. They’re panicking. They want swift and decisive action. They want the goalie traded or key players waived or the coach and general manager fired, as if any or all changes would provide the necessary fix.
